Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Oswald J. Schmitz mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Predation, Herbivore and Food chain. His study in Trophic cascade, Trophic level, Apex predator, Food web and Biomass falls under the purview of Ecology. His Trophic level research incorporates elements of Plant community and Guild.

The various areas that Oswald J. Schmitz examines in his Apex predator study include Kelp forest and Species richness. His Ecosystem services study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecosystem, is frequently linked to Damages, bridging the gap between disciplines. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Predation, focusing on Spider and, on occasion, Grasshopper.

His most cited work include:

  • Status and ecological effects of the world's largest carnivores. (1547 citations)
  • Trophic cascades in terrestrial systems: a review of the effects of carnivore removals on plants. (806 citations)
  • Trophic cascades : the primacy of trait-mediated indirect interactions (749 citations)

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

Oswald J. Schmitz mainly focuses on Ecology, Predation, Ecosystem, Herbivore and Trophic level. Ecology, Food chain, Food web, Trophic cascade and Foraging are the subjects of his Ecology studies. His work in the fields of Predation, such as Predator, intersects with other areas such as Context.

His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Plant community, Biodiversity and Environmental resource management. His study looks at the relationship between Herbivore and fields such as Melanoplus femurrubrum, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work in the fields of Trophic species overlaps with other areas such as Trait.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (79.59%)
  • Predation (32.14%)
  • Ecosystem (27.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (79.59%)
  • Ecosystem (27.55%)
  • Predation (32.14%)

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

Oswald J. Schmitz mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Predation, Herbivore and Ecology. His study in Biomass, Climate change, Habitat, Biodiversity and Food chain falls within the category of Ecology. His Habitat research focuses on Foraging and how it connects with Intraguild predation.

His studies deal with areas such as Plant community and Environmental resource management as well as Ecosystem. His work deals with themes such as Adaptation and Ectotherm, which intersect with Predation. Oswald J. Schmitz interconnects Trophic level, Litter decomposition, Vegetation and Litter in the investigation of issues within Herbivore.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Carnivore conservation needs evidence-based livestock protection. (121 citations)
  • Animals and the zoogeochemistry of the carbon cycle. (57 citations)
  • Ecosystem Function and Services of Aquatic Predators in the Anthropocene. (46 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Oswald J. Schmitz spends much of his time researching Ecology, Biomass, Ecosystem, Climate change and Herbivore. His research related to Community, Ecology, Predation, Competition and Food web might be considered part of Ecology. His Predation research incorporates themes from Habitat and Temporal scales.

His work carried out in the field of Biomass brings together such families of science as Ecosystem model, Soil carbon, Carbon cycle and Ecosystem ecology. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Adaptive management, Environmental resource management and Plant community. Oswald J. Schmitz combines subjects such as Agronomy, Resistance, Soil nutrients, Nutrient and Community genetics with his study of Herbivore.
