2014 - Fellow of the Ecological Society of America (ESA)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Riparian zone, Ecosystem, River ecosystem and STREAMS. Robert J. Naiman is interested in Riparian forest, which is a branch of Riparian zone. His Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Transect, Environmental resource management and Taiga.

His studies deal with areas such as Ecotone, Lake ecosystem and Periphyton as well as River ecosystem. His research investigates the link between STREAMS and topics such as Fluvial that cross with problems in Drainage basin. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Wetland, focusing on Natural resource and, on occasion, Biodiversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Freshwater biodiversity: importance, threats, status and conservation challenges (3920 citations)
  • The Ecology of Interfaces: Riparian Zones (1955 citations)
  • The Role of Riparian Corridors in Maintaining Regional Biodiversity (1193 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Riparian zone, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management and Riparian forest. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as STREAMS. His Riparian zone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hydrology, Floodplain, Oncorhynchus and Vegetation.

In the field of Ecosystem, his study on Disturbance overlaps with subjects such as Stream metabolism. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Restoration ecology, Land use, Ecosystem services, Environmental change and Sustainability. His work carried out in the field of Riparian forest brings together such families of science as Forestry, Basal area, Fluvial, Species richness and Arid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (68.81%)
  • Riparian zone (49.50%)
  • Ecosystem (30.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2021)?

  • Ecology (68.81%)
  • Riparian zone (49.50%)
  • Environmental resource management (24.26%)

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

Robert J. Naiman spends much of his time researching Ecology, Riparian zone, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem and Riparian forest. His Ecology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Fluvial. Robert J. Naiman combines subjects such as Abundance, Vegetation, Arid, Food web and Oncorhynchus with his study of Riparian zone.

He interconnects Restoration ecology, Environmental change, Habitat and Ecosystem services in the investigation of issues within Environmental resource management. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Species richness, Climate change, Sustainability and Marsh. His Riparian forest study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Interspecific competition, Ecological succession, Hydrology, Forestry and Large woody debris.

Between 2005 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Freshwater biodiversity: importance, threats, status and conservation challenges (3920 citations)
  • The ecological limits of hydrologic alteration (ELOHA): a new framework for developing regional environmental flow standards (1061 citations)
  • THE CHALLENGE OF PROVIDING ENVIRONMENTAL FLOW RULES TO SUSTAIN RIVER ECOSYSTEMS (894 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Riparian zone, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management and Climate change. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental flow and Hydrology. His Riparian zone study incorporates themes from Floodplain, Temperate rainforest, Oncorhynchus and Vegetation.

His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Landform, Geomorphology, Niche construction and STREAMS. His study in Environmental resource management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both River ecosystem, Restoration ecology, Sustainability and Ecosystem services. His Biodiversity research includes elements of Aquatic ecosystem and Wetland.
