Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Biodiversity and Agronomy. His work in Vegetation, Species richness, Climate change, Productivity and Biome is related to Ecology. His research investigates the connection with Ecosystem and areas like Nitrogen cycle which intersect with concerns in Temperate climate.

His Botany research includes themes of Relative growth rate and Horticulture. His research investigates the link between Biodiversity and topics such as Ecosystem services that cross with problems in Agroforestry. His research integrates issues of Habitat, Deciduous and Biogeochemistry in his study of Agronomy.

His most cited work include:

  • The worldwide leaf economics spectrum (4498 citations)
  • A handbook of protocols for standardised and easy measurement of plant functional traits worldwide (2451 citations)
  • The Influence of Functional Diversity and Composition on Ecosystem Processes (2197 citations)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Agronomy and Biodiversity are his primary areas of study. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Biomass, Species richness, Plant community, Climate change and Temperate climate. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Productivity, Grassland and Vegetation.

His studies link Horticulture with Botany. His Agronomy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil organic matter, Soil carbon, Soil water and Nutrient. His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from Species diversity and Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (89.52%)
  • Ecosystem (50.66%)
  • Botany (25.64%)

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

  • Ecology (89.52%)
  • Ecosystem (50.66%)
  • Agronomy (27.93%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Agronomy, Biodiversity and Biomass. Plant community, Species richness, Temperate climate, Biome and Abundance are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study. His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Productivity, Grassland and Global change.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Carbon dioxide, Soil water, Soil carbon and Nutrient. He combines subjects such as Environmental resource management, Species diversity and Abiotic component with his study of Biodiversity. His work deals with themes such as Global biodiversity and Vegetation, which intersect with Biomass.

Between 2018 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)
  • Climatic controls of decomposition drive the global biogeography of forest-tree symbioses (114 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecosystem, Agronomy, Biodiversity and Temperate climate. Ecology is represented through his Plant community, Abundance, Biome, Microcosm and Grassland research. His research integrates issues of Species richness, Acclimatization, Community structure and Precipitation in his study of Ecosystem.

Peter B. Reich has included themes like Primary production and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide in his Agronomy study. His study looks at the relationship between Biodiversity and fields such as Productivity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Peter B. Reich has researched Biomass in several fields, including Nutrient and Vegetation.
