What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Fire regime, Ecology, Vegetation, Climate change and Fire ecology. His research in Fire regime intersects with topics in Adaptive management, Meteorology and Prescribed burn. Ecology is often connected to Serotiny in his work.

The various areas that Ross A. Bradstock examines in his Vegetation study include Biota, Remote sensing and Physical geography. Ross A. Bradstock works mostly in the field of Climate change, limiting it down to topics relating to Environmental resource management and, in certain cases, Ecosystem management, as a part of the same area of interest. His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Range, Plant functional type, Functional ecology and Species diversity.

His most cited work include:

  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)
  • Fire as an evolutionary pressure shaping plant traits (492 citations)
  • Flammable Australia: The Fire Regimes and Biodiversity of a Continent (435 citations)

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

Ross A. Bradstock mainly focuses on Fire regime, Ecology, Vegetation, Prescribed burn and Ecosystem. The concepts of his Fire regime study are interwoven with issues in Mediterranean climate, Biodiversity, Climate change and Meteorology. His work deals with themes such as Agroforestry and Environmental resource management, which intersect with Biodiversity.

His study in Fire ecology, Woodland, Shrub, Disturbance and Rainforest falls within the category of Ecology. His Vegetation research incorporates themes from Biomass, Boreal, Climatology and Physical geography. His study in Prescribed burn is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hydrology, Erosion, Moorland and Environmental protection.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Fire regime (49.04%)
  • Ecology (43.27%)
  • Vegetation (32.69%)

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

  • Fire regime (49.04%)
  • Vegetation (32.69%)
  • Climate change (16.35%)

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

Ross A. Bradstock mostly deals with Fire regime, Vegetation, Climate change, Environmental resource management and Ecology. His Fire regime research includes elements of Soil water, Carbon sequestration, Sclerophyll, Physical geography and Biogeochemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomass, Agroforestry and Precipitation.

His Climate change research incorporates elements of Spatial ecology, Atmospheric sciences and Prescribed burn. His studies deal with areas such as Wildfire suppression and Resource productivity as well as Environmental resource management. Many of his studies on Ecology apply to Passive acoustic monitoring as well.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Unprecedented burn area of Australian mega forest fires (105 citations)
  • Causes and consequences of eastern Australia's 2019-20 season of mega-fires. (103 citations)
  • Biological and geophysical feedbacks with fire in the Earth system (73 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climate change, Fire regime, Vegetation, Mega- and Forestry. Ross A. Bradstock performs multidisciplinary studies into Fire regime and Flammability in his work. His Vegetation research integrates issues from Water stress, Environmental change, Calibration and validation and Natural hazard.

Ross A. Bradstock interconnects Temperate forest, Ecology and Coarse woody debris in the investigation of issues within Forestry. The Coarse woody debris study combines topics in areas such as Forest ecology and Prescribed burn. His Carbon sequestration study combines topics in areas such as Debris, Temperate rainforest, Sink, Atmospheric sciences and Bioregion.
