What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Mediterranean climate and Evergreen. He carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Ecology and Desert. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Abundance and Community structure.

His research in the fields of Water-use efficiency, Secondary chemistry and RuBisCO overlaps with other disciplines such as Terpene. Philip W. Rundel focuses mostly in the field of Mediterranean climate, narrowing it down to matters related to Vegetation and, in some cases, Cape, Species diversity and Species richness. His Evergreen study incorporates themes from Shrub, Simmondsia chinensis, Canopy and Agronomy.

His most cited work include:

  • Stable Isotopes in Ecological Research (783 citations)
  • Plant diversity in mediterranean-climate regions. (757 citations)
  • Plant Physiological Ecology-Field Methods and Instrumentation. (607 citations)

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

Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Habitat and Shrub are his primary areas of study. He connects Ecology with Desert in his research. His Botany research includes elements of Agronomy and Horticulture.

His work carried out in the field of Agronomy brings together such families of science as Larrea and Transpiration. Philip W. Rundel usually deals with Shoot and limits it to topics linked to Phenology and Prosopis glandulosa. Philip W. Rundel interconnects Biomass and Shrubland in the investigation of issues within Chaparral.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.04%)
  • Botany (31.52%)
  • Ecosystem (14.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Ecology (63.04%)
  • Mediterranean climate (8.95%)
  • Mediterranean Basin (5.84%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Mediterranean Basin, Chaparral and Ecosystem. Species richness, Introduced species, Native plant, Woodland and Biodiversity are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study. The Mediterranean climate study which covers Species diversity that intersects with Shrubland, Woody plant, Herbaceous plant, Poaceae and Temperate climate.

His Chaparral study combines topics in areas such as Shrub, Disturbance, Southwest Australia, Plant community and Transpiration. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Herbivore, Foraging, Biogeochemical cycle and Nest. His Evergreen study is concerned with Botany in general.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mediterranean Biomes: Evolution of Their Vegetation, Floras, and Climate (108 citations)
  • Tree invasions into treeless areas: mechanisms and ecosystem processes (99 citations)
  • Variation in plant diversity in mediterranean-climate ecosystems: The role of climatic and topographical stability (79 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

Philip W. Rundel mainly focuses on Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Invasive species, Species richness and Mediterranean Basin. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Introduced species, Biodiversity, Shrubland, Woodland and Ecosystem. Within one scientific family, Philip W. Rundel focuses on topics pertaining to Taxon under Introduced species, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Habitat.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Forb and Native plant. His Species richness study also includes fields such as

  • Last Glacial Maximum, which have a strong connection to Range, Polylepis and Disjunct,
  • Species diversity which intersects with area such as Vegetation, Sclerophyll, Biodiversity hotspot, Temperate climate and Evergreen. His study in Mediterranean Basin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cenozoic and Fire ecology.
