2016 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Ecosystem, Ecology, Soil water, Biodiversity and Soil organic matter. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil biodiversity, Seasonality and Cycling. Ross A. Virginia regularly ties together related areas like Sediment in his Ecology studies.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hydrology, Aquatic ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Transect. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry. His Shrub research incorporates elements of Desertification and Soil fertility.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological Feedbacks in Global Desertification (2034 citations)
  • Global patterns of foliar nitrogen isotopes and their relationships with climate, mycorrhizal fungi, foliar nutrient concentrations, and nitrogen availability (572 citations)
  • Open‐top designs for manipulating field temperature in high‐latitude ecosystems (518 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil water, Soil biology and Prosopis glandulosa. His is doing research in Abundance, Climate change, Biodiversity, Tundra and Species diversity, both of which are found in Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Soil biodiversity and Oceanography, Aquatic ecosystem as well as Ecosystem.

His work in Soil water addresses subjects such as Water content, which are connected to disciplines such as Soil salinity. His work deals with themes such as Biota and Biogeochemical cycle, which intersect with Soil biology. Ross A. Virginia interconnects Prosopis, Agronomy and Rhizobia in the investigation of issues within Prosopis glandulosa.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (41.09%)
  • Ecosystem (31.19%)
  • Soil water (30.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecosystem (31.19%)
  • Ecology (41.09%)
  • Arctic (6.44%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecosystem, Ecology, Arctic, Tundra and Physical geography. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Environmental chemistry, Oceanography, Climate change and Soil biodiversity. His Arctic study combines topics in areas such as Climatology and The arctic.

His study in Tundra is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Shrub, Spatial heterogeneity and Deciduous. His Shrub research focuses on subjects like Herbivore, which are linked to Biomass. His Graminoid study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil water and Nutrient.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The polar regions in a 2°C warmer world (72 citations)
  • Decadal Ecosystem Response to an Anomalous Melt Season in a Polar Desert in Antarctica (33 citations)
  • Moving beyond panaceas in fisheries governance (31 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Ross A. Virginia mainly focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Arctic and Biogeochemical cycle. In his research, Ross A. Virginia performs multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Vaccinium uliginosum. His research in Ecosystem is mostly concerned with Tundra.

His Soil biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Abundance, Soil type, Mineralization, Biomass and Soil classification. He combines subjects such as Climatology, Landform and Physical geography with his study of Arctic. His Biogeochemical cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil water, Soil respiration, Sediment, Geochemistry and Water content.
