Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Patrick Meir mainly investigates Ecology, Climate change, Rainforest, Carbon cycle and Ecosystem. His studies link Atmospheric sciences with Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Abundance and Climatology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Remote sensing, Biosphere, Field and Carbon sequestration in addition to Carbon cycle. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Soil science and Drought tolerance. His work in Tropical rainforest covers topics such as Water content which are related to areas like Soil water.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Photosynthesis: from Light to Biosphere (966 citations)
  • State of the World's Forests 2001 (639 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Agronomy and Amazon rainforest. Ecology is a component of his Carbon cycle, Rainforest, Biomass, Climate change and Primary production studies. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Climatology, Tropics and Biome.

In his study, Water content is strongly linked to Soil water, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecosystem. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Canopy, Leaf area index, Precipitation, Vegetation and Dry season. His Agronomy study also includes

  • Photosynthesis that intertwine with fields like Respiration,
  • Soil carbon that connect with fields like Global warming.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (57.25%)
  • Ecosystem (39.44%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (35.88%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (35.88%)
  • Amazon rainforest (24.94%)
  • Ecology (57.25%)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Ecosystem and Soil water. His work deals with themes such as Canopy, Climate change, Carbon cycle, Water content and Lidar, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences. Patrick Meir combines subjects such as Elevation, Statistics, Mode and Agronomy with his study of Amazon rainforest.

His study in the field of Biomass and Environmental change also crosses realms of Trait. Patrick Meir works mostly in the field of Ecosystem, limiting it down to topics relating to Biosphere and, in certain cases, Ecosystem ecology, Growing season, Drought tolerance, Evapotranspiration and Leaf area index, as a part of the same area of interest. His study looks at the intersection of Soil water and topics like Productivity with Rainforest.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Stomatal optimization based on xylem hydraulics (SOX) improves land surface model simulation of vegetation responses to climate. (29 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His main research concerns Agronomy, Soil water, Amazon rainforest, Atmospheric sciences and Climate change. His Agronomy research includes themes of Photosynthesis and Plant physiology. His studies deal with areas such as Tropics and Carbon dioxide as well as Soil water.

His Amazon rainforest research entails a greater understanding of Ecology. Patrick Meir has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Productivity, Canopy, Ecosystem and Evergreen. As a part of the same scientific family, Patrick Meir mostly works in the field of Climate change, focusing on Eddy covariance and, on occasion, Vegetation, Stomatal conductance, Water content and Drought tolerance.
