Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Monica G. Turner mainly focuses on Ecology, Landscape ecology, Spatial ecology, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem. Her Spatial heterogeneity, Ecology, Disturbance, Land cover and Habitat investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. Her studies deal with areas such as Mountain pine beetle, Bark beetle and Intertidal zone as well as Disturbance.

Her Landscape ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecological succession and Scale. Her work deals with themes such as Resource, Ecosystem services, Common spatial pattern, Sustainable development and Temporal scales, which intersect with Environmental resource management. Her Ecosystem study incorporates themes from Global warming, Climate change, National park and Crown.

Her most cited work include:

  • Landscape Ecology: The Effect of Pattern on Process (2404 citations)
  • The Report of the Ecological Society of America Committee on the Scientific Basis for Ecosystem Management (1254 citations)
  • Indices of landscape pattern (1245 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Monica G. Turner focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Landscape ecology, Environmental resource management and Ecology. Her Ecology and Habitat, Disturbance, Pinus contorta, National park and Spatial heterogeneity investigations all form part of her Ecology research activities. Her Ecosystem research includes elements of Climate change and Vegetation.

Monica G. Turner has researched Landscape ecology in several fields, including Spatial ecology, Applied ecology, Land use and Sustainable development. Her Spatial ecology research includes themes of Spatial analysis and Scale. Monica G. Turner interconnects Ecological systems theory, Sustainability and Ecosystem services in the investigation of issues within Environmental resource management.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (67.05%)
  • Ecosystem (22.25%)
  • Landscape ecology (21.97%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (67.05%)
  • Environmental resource management (16.47%)
  • Ecosystem services (7.23%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Ecosystem and Landscape ecology. Ecology is represented through her Pinus contorta, Disturbance, Climate change, Ecological succession and Fire regime research. Monica G. Turner combines subjects such as Empirical research and Surface runoff with her study of Environmental resource management.

Her Ecosystem services research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Watershed and Land cover, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Land management, Land use. In her study, Basal area is strongly linked to Global change, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecosystem. The study incorporates disciplines such as Spatial ecology, Ecology, Spatial heterogeneity and Sustainable development in addition to Landscape ecology.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Landscape Ecology in Theory and Practice: Pattern and Process (1245 citations)
  • Changing disturbance regimes, ecological memory, and forest resilience (459 citations)
  • Landscape Ecology in Theory and Practice (317 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Monica G. Turner mainly investigates Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Disturbance and Ecosystem. Her study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Watershed with Wetland. Her work carried out in the field of Environmental resource management brings together such families of science as Landscape ecology and Land use.

Her study in Disturbance is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Vegetation and Abiotic component. When carried out as part of a general Ecosystem research project, her work on Forest ecology is frequently linked to work in Inference, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Monica G. Turner usually deals with Landscape epidemiology and limits it to topics linked to Geostatistics and Spatial heterogeneity.
