Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

N. LeRoy Poff spends much of his time researching Ecology, Environmental resource management, River ecosystem, Ecosystem and Riparian zone. His work deals with themes such as Streamflow and STREAMS, which intersect with Ecology. His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Restoration ecology, Sustainability and Introduced species.

The River ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Invertebrate and Functional diversity. His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change, Flood myth, Natural flow and Water resources. His work carried out in the field of Riparian zone brings together such families of science as Environmental monitoring, Effects of global warming, Freshwater ecosystem and Fluvial.

His most cited work include:

  • THE NATURAL FLOW REGIME. A PARADIGM FOR RIVER CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION (4697 citations)
  • THE NATURAL FLOW REGIME. A PARADIGM FOR RIVER CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION (4697 citations)
  • Landscape filters and species traits: Towards mechanistic understanding and prediction in stream ecology (1353 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem, STREAMS and River ecosystem. His Ecology research focuses on Habitat, Riparian zone, Climate change, Biodiversity and Abundance. N. LeRoy Poff connects Environmental resource management with Process in his study.

N. LeRoy Poff has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Water resource management, Adaptive management, Spatial heterogeneity, Hydrology and Abiotic component. His study looks at the relationship between STREAMS and fields such as Streamflow, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research integrates issues of Invertebrate and Global change in his study of River ecosystem.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (78.45%)
  • Environmental resource management (33.15%)
  • Ecosystem (33.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (78.45%)
  • Ecosystem (33.70%)
  • Climate change (22.65%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Biodiversity and Environmental resource management are his primary areas of study. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Habitat, Disturbance, Herbivore, Taxon and Temperate climate. He interconnects Spatial ecology and Freshwater ecosystem in the investigation of issues within Habitat.

In general Ecosystem, his work in River ecosystem is often linked to Current linking many areas of study. Environmental resource management connects with themes related to Population growth in his study. His study on Mountain stream is often connected to Elevation as part of broader study in STREAMS.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Beyond the natural flow regime? Broadening the hydro‐ecological foundation to meet environmental flows challenges in a non‐stationary world (114 citations)
  • Beyond the natural flow regime? Broadening the hydro‐ecological foundation to meet environmental flows challenges in a non‐stationary world (114 citations)
  • The Brisbane Declaration and Global Action Agenda on Environmental Flows (2018) (95 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Biological dispersal and Process. N. LeRoy Poff studies Climate change, a branch of Ecology. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biodiversity and Abiotic component.

His Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Restoration ecology, Freshwater ecosystem and Hydrological modelling. His Biological dispersal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Speciation, Temperate climate, Tropics, Reproductive isolation and Species richness. The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental monitoring and Water resources in addition to River ecosystem.
