What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Ecology, Hydrology, Ecosystem, Soil water and Nitrogen cycle are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Denitrification, Riparian forest, Riparian zone and Nitrate in addition to Hydrology. Peter M. Groffman has included themes like Entisol and Sink in his Denitrification study.

The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Urbanization, Urban ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Vegetation and Aquatic ecosystem. The various areas that Peter M. Groffman examines in his Soil water study include Environmental chemistry, Yellow birch and Agronomy. His Nitrogen cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rangeland, Nitrification, Mineralization, Soil respiration and Grassland.

His most cited work include:

  • The urban stream syndrome: current knowledge and the search for a cure (1732 citations)
  • Biogeochemical Hot Spots and Hot Moments at the Interface of Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems (1610 citations)
  • Ecological thresholds: The key to successful environmental management or an important concept with no practical application? (822 citations)

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

Peter M. Groffman mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Hydrology, Soil water and Denitrification. His Ecology research focuses on Nitrogen cycle and how it connects with Nitrification and Biogeochemical cycle. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Experimental forest, Climate change, Environmental resource management and Cycling.

As a part of the same scientific family, Peter M. Groffman mostly works in the field of Hydrology, focusing on Riparian zone and, on occasion, Water table. His Soil water study incorporates themes from Environmental chemistry and Agronomy. His research in Denitrification intersects with topics in Nitrous oxide, Environmental engineering, Nitrate and Water quality.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (36.91%)
  • Ecosystem (36.03%)
  • Hydrology (26.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (36.91%)
  • Ecosystem (36.03%)
  • Climate change (10.19%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Nitrogen cycle and Hydrology. His Ecosystem research incorporates themes from Global warming, Experimental forest, Forestry and Biogeochemical cycle. As a part of the same scientific study, Peter M. Groffman usually deals with the Experimental forest, concentrating on Forest ecology and frequently concerns with Environmental change and Environmental resource management.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental planning, Storm, Atmospheric sciences and Biogeochemistry. His research on Nitrogen cycle also deals with topics like

  • Denitrification which is related to area like Wetland,
  • Nitrification which connect with Agronomy. Peter M. Groffman works mostly in the field of Hydrology, limiting it down to topics relating to Riparian zone and, in certain cases, Stream restoration, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Homogenization of plant diversity, composition, and structure in North American urban yards (42 citations)
  • Homogenization of plant diversity, composition, and structure in North American urban yards (42 citations)
  • Nitrogen oligotrophication in northern hardwood forests (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Peter M. Groffman mainly focuses on Ecology, Plant community, Ecosystem, Soil water and Urban ecology. His work in Plant community addresses issues such as Biodiversity, which are connected to fields such as Ecosystem services. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil organic matter, Denitrification, Experimental forest and Urban forest.

His Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Agronomy and Compost. His work investigates the relationship between Lawn and topics such as Species evenness that intersect with problems in Nitrogen cycle. His Arid study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Channel, Hydrology, River ecosystem and Riparian zone.
