What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Her primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Climate change, Botany, Stomatal conductance and Ecosystem. Nate G. McDowell brings together Ecology and Carbon starvation to produce work in her papers. Her studies deal with areas such as Biomass and Forest ecology as well as Climate change.

She studied Forest ecology and Agroforestry that intersect with Ecosystem services, Greenhouse gas and Drought stress. Her work on Photosynthesis and Canopy as part of general Botany study is frequently linked to Tree, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Stomatal conductance study combines topics in areas such as Growing season, Basal area, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Water-use efficiency and Carbon dioxide.

Her most cited work include:

  • A global overview of drought and heat-induced tree mortality reveals emerging climate change risks for forests (4059 citations)
  • Mechanisms of plant survival and mortality during drought: why do some plants survive while others succumb to drought? (2316 citations)
  • On underestimation of global vulnerability to tree mortality and forest die‐off from hotter drought in the Anthropocene (1051 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Climate change, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences and Agronomy. In her research, Nate G. McDowell undertakes multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Carbon starvation. Her Climate change research focuses on Vegetation and how it relates to Climatology.

Her work investigates the relationship between Ecosystem and topics such as Water content that intersect with problems in Irrigation. Her Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Vapour Pressure Deficit and Carbon cycle. Her study in Agronomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Photosynthesis, Juniper, Botany, Stomatal conductance and Juniperus monosperma.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (27.89%)
  • Climate change (19.05%)
  • Ecosystem (17.69%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (13.61%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (16.67%)
  • Seawater (3.74%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Photosynthesis, Atmospheric sciences, Seawater, Xylem and Vapour Pressure Deficit. Her Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change, Terrestrial ecosystem and Human fertilization. Her Climate change study incorporates themes from Ecosystem structure, Data management and Environmental planning.

Her Vapour Pressure Deficit research incorporates elements of Tropical forest, Canopy and Water stress. Ecology covers Nate G. McDowell research in Water-use efficiency. The study incorporates disciplines such as Twig and Respiration in addition to Ecology.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Pervasive shifts in forest dynamics in a changing world (87 citations)
  • Plant responses to rising vapor pressure deficit. (81 citations)
  • The handbook for standardized field and laboratory measurements in terrestrial climate change experiments and observational studies (ClimEx) (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Nate G. McDowell mainly focuses on Photosynthesis, Earth system science, Climate change, Biomass and Environmental resource management. The various areas that Nate G. McDowell examines in her Photosynthesis study include Atmospheric sciences and Twig. Her Earth system science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Methane emissions and Ecosystem.

Nate G. McDowell performs multidisciplinary studies into Climate change and Data availability in her work. The concepts of her Biomass study are interwoven with issues in Human fertilization, Land use, Forest ecology, Animal science and Taiga. Her Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Forcing, Forest dynamics, Vegetation and Disturbance.
