What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

S. Joseph Wright mainly focuses on Ecology, Tropics, Canopy, Botany and Seedling. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Seed dispersal and Seed predation. S. Joseph Wright interconnects Habitat destruction and Secondary forest in the investigation of issues within Tropics.

His Canopy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dry season, Woody plant and Agronomy, Phenology. His work deals with themes such as Biomass and Horticulture, which intersect with Botany. S. Joseph Wright has included themes like Janzen–Connell hypothesis and Predation in his Seedling study.

His most cited work include:

  • The global spectrum of plant form and function (972 citations)
  • The Phenology of Tropical Forests: Adaptive Significance and Consequences for Primary Consumers* (931 citations)
  • Pervasive density-dependent recruitment enhances seedling diversity in a tropical forest (802 citations)

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

S. Joseph Wright spends much of his time researching Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Panama and Seedling. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biological dispersal and Seed dispersal. S. Joseph Wright has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Dry season, Soil water and Nutrient.

S. Joseph Wright combines subjects such as Biomass and Litter with his study of Nutrient. His studies deal with areas such as Herbivore and Predation as well as Seedling. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tropical climate, Intraspecific competition and Competition in addition to Interspecific competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (66.91%)
  • Botany (18.18%)
  • Agronomy (18.18%)

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

  • Ecology (66.91%)
  • Panama (16.00%)
  • Nutrient (13.09%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Panama, Nutrient, Interspecific competition and Plant community. S. Joseph Wright frequently studies issues relating to Biological dispersal and Ecology. His Panama research incorporates elements of Tropics, Simulation, Vegetation, Earth system science and Seedling.

The concepts of his Nutrient study are interwoven with issues in Old-growth forest, Soil water and Agronomy, Human fertilization. His studies examine the connections between Interspecific competition and genetics, as well as such issues in Trade-off, with regards to Resource. His work carried out in the field of Plant community brings together such families of science as Woody plant, Density dependence, Janzen–Connell hypothesis and Statistics, Community structure.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Divergent drivers of leaf trait variation within species, among species, and among functional groups (45 citations)
  • Community proteogenomics reveals the systemic impact of phosphorus availability on microbial functions in tropical soil. (43 citations)
  • Bias in the detection of negative density dependence in plant communities. (40 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

S. Joseph Wright mostly deals with Ecology, Nutrient, Interspecific competition, Phenology and Plant community. S. Joseph Wright conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Trait through his research. His studies in Nutrient integrate themes in fields like Soil water and Agronomy, Human fertilization.

His research in Interspecific competition intersects with topics in Photosynthesis, Ecophysiology, Quantitative trait locus and Respiration. The Phenology study combines topics in areas such as Solar irradiance, Moisture availability and Reproduction. His Plant community research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Habitat, Tree canopy, DNA barcoding, Food web and Community structure.
