Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Climate change

Patrick Fonti focuses on Ecology, Dendrochronology, Growing season, Xylem and Botany. His Ecology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Agronomy. His Dendrochronology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Taxon, Climate change, Global change, Anatomy and Field.

His Growing season research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Larch, Cambium, Atmospheric sciences and Phenology. In his work, Tracheid, Plant science, Dendroclimatology and Pinophyta is strongly intertwined with Northern Hemisphere, which is a subfield of Xylem. His work deals with themes such as Organic matter, Soil water and Water cycle, which intersect with Botany.

His most cited work include:

  • Studying global change through investigation of the plastic responses of xylem anatomy in tree rings (333 citations)
  • Timing and duration of European larch growing season along altitudinal gradients in the Swiss Alps. (188 citations)
  • Drought-induced adaptation of the xylem in Scots pine and pubescent oak. (172 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Dendrochronology, Xylem, Botany and Tracheid. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Northern Hemisphere and Atmospheric sciences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Larch, Fagaceae, Physical geography and Anatomy.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Xylem, Phenology, Cambium and Transect is strongly linked to Growing season. His study on Coppicing is often connected to Shake, Ring and Cell Enlargement as part of broader study in Botany. His Tracheid research incorporates themes from Larix sibirica, Picea abies, Mediterranean climate and Pinus .

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (32.12%)
  • Dendrochronology (29.20%)
  • Xylem (27.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (32.12%)
  • Dendrochronology (29.20%)
  • Xylem (27.01%)

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

Patrick Fonti mostly deals with Ecology, Dendrochronology, Xylem, Tracheid and Phenology. His work on Forest ecology and Phenotypic plasticity as part of general Ecology research is often related to Phenotypic integration, thus linking different fields of science. The Dendrochronology study combines topics in areas such as European Larch, Larch, δ13C, Adaptation and Tree species.

His Cambium study, which is part of a larger body of work in Xylem, is frequently linked to Radial direction, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Tracheid study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Botany. His Phenology research integrates issues from Beech, Climate change, Temperate climate and Northern Hemisphere.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The GenTree Dendroecological Collection: tree-ring and wood density data from seven tree species across Europe (113 citations)
  • Contrasting resistance and resilience to extreme drought and late spring frost in five major European tree species. (40 citations)
  • Chilling and forcing temperatures interact to predict the onset of wood formation in Northern Hemisphere conifers (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Climate change

Patrick Fonti mainly focuses on Picea abies, Atmospheric sciences, Ecology, Phenology and Tracheid. Within one scientific family, Patrick Fonti focuses on topics pertaining to Temperate climate under Picea abies, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Horticulture, Cambium and Xylem. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Pinus and Climate change, Tree line.

His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phloem and Phloem transport. His work carried out in the field of Tracheid brings together such families of science as Plant stem, Abiotic component and Phenotypic plasticity. His work in Forest ecology addresses subjects such as Resistance, which are connected to disciplines such as Dendrochronology.
