Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Agronomy and Biodiversity. His work in Plant community, Soil biodiversity, Decomposer, Soil carbon and Plant litter are all subfields of Ecology research. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biomass, Ecology, Species richness and Biota.

His study looks at the relationship between Soil biology and fields such as Soil health, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Soil organic matter, Soil water, Soil fertility, Rhizosphere and Nutrient. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trophic level, Functional ecology and Ecosystem services.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological linkages between aboveground and belowground biota. (2805 citations)
  • The unseen majority: Soil microbes as drivers of plant diversity and productivity in terrestrial ecosystems (2521 citations)
  • Belowground biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (1093 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Agronomy, Soil water and Plant community. His Ecology study frequently links to other fields, such as Microbial population biology. Ecosystem and Species richness are frequently intertwined in his study.

The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Soil organic matter, Nutrient, Soil fertility and Botany. The various areas that he examines in his Soil water study include Environmental chemistry, Organic matter and Nitrogen cycle. His work in Soil biology addresses subjects such as Plant litter, which are connected to disciplines such as Litter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (62.44%)
  • Ecosystem (44.44%)
  • Agronomy (27.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (62.44%)
  • Ecosystem (44.44%)
  • Soil water (22.22%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil water, Biodiversity and Plant community are his primary areas of study. His Ecosystem research incorporates themes from Biomass, Agronomy, Species richness and Soil biodiversity. His Agronomy study also includes

  • Nutrient which intersects with area such as Microbial population biology,
  • Soil biology that connect with fields like Food web.

His work on Soil carbon and Mineralization as part of general Soil water study is frequently linked to Realization, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Productivity, Phosphorus metabolism, Soil chemistry and Soil microbiology. His Plant community research integrates issues from Dominance and Ecosystem ecology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The significance of soils and soil science towards realization of the United Nations sustainable development goals (626 citations)
  • A global atlas of the dominant bacteria found in soil (547 citations)
  • Soil bacterial networks are less stable under drought than fungal networks. (202 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Richard D. Bardgett mainly focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Soil water and Plant community. His research in Abiotic component, Soil microbiology, Soil organic matter, Soil fertility and Ecosystem services are components of Ecology. His Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Biomass, Agronomy, Nutrient and Taxon.

The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Intraspecific competition, Phosphorus metabolism, Interspecific competition, Soil biodiversity and Community. His Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Range, Plant growth, Organic matter and Temperate grassland. He combines subjects such as Dominance, Species richness, Biota and Ecosystem ecology with his study of Plant community.
