Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Riparian zone, Land cover, Spatial analysis and Plant community. Ecology and Flood myth are frequently intertwined in her study. Her research in Riparian zone intersects with topics in Spatial ecology, Watershed, Environmental monitoring and Landscape ecology.

Her study in Watershed is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Land use, Habitat, Drainage basin, Environmental resource management and Impervious surface. Sarah E. Gergel has included themes like Arctic vegetation, Tundra and Alnus viridis in her Plant community study. Her Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Aquatic environment, Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biogeochemical Hot Spots and Hot Moments at the Interface of Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems (1610 citations)
  • Landscape indicators of human impacts to riverine systems (345 citations)
  • DISSOLVED ORGANIC CARBON AS AN INDICATOR OF THE SCALE OF WATERSHED INFLUENCE ON LAKES AND RIVERS (248 citations)

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

Sarah E. Gergel mainly focuses on Ecology, Landscape ecology, Environmental resource management, Land cover and Habitat. In the subject of general Ecology, her work in Ecosystem, Spatial ecology, Floodplain and Vegetation is often linked to Context, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Her studies deal with areas such as Aquatic environment, Coral reef, Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry as well as Ecosystem.

Her Spatial ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Aquatic ecosystem and Taiga. Her Land cover study combines topics in areas such as Watershed, Physical geography, Riparian zone and Fire regime. The Habitat study combines topics in areas such as Remote sensing and Wildlife.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (36.63%)
  • Landscape ecology (18.81%)
  • Environmental resource management (16.83%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Land cover (16.83%)
  • Agroforestry (12.87%)
  • Land use (9.90%)

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

Sarah E. Gergel mainly investigates Land cover, Agroforestry, Land use, Ecosystem services and Agricultural productivity. Her Land cover study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Economic geography, Wet season, Greening, Spatial ecology and Population health. The study incorporates disciplines such as Riparian zone, Crop and Food systems in addition to Agroforestry.

Sarah E. Gergel focuses mostly in the field of Agricultural productivity, narrowing it down to matters related to Food security and, in some cases, Remote sensing, Satellite imagery, Forest fragmentation and Conservation. Her Agriculture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Habitat, Landscape connectivity and Environmental stewardship. Her Biodiversity research focuses on Landscape ecology and how it connects with Environmental resource management.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Greenspace access does not correspond to nature exposure: Measures of urban natural space with implications for health research (12 citations)
  • Towards multifunctional land use in an agricultural landscape: A trade-off and synergy analysis in the Lower Fraser Valley, Canada (10 citations)
  • Testing the various pathways linking forest cover to dietary diversity in tropical landscapes (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Her primary scientific interests are in Agroforestry, Agricultural productivity, Agriculture, Land use and Ecosystem services. Her Agroforestry study incorporates themes from Tropics, Crop, Livelihood and Food systems. Sarah E. Gergel combines subjects such as Agricultural land, Food security, Landscape connectivity and Riparian zone with her study of Agricultural productivity.

Her Agriculture research integrates issues from Scenario analysis and Environmental stewardship. Sarah E. Gergel studies Land use, namely Land cover. Her Ecosystem services research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biodiversity, Livestock, Grassland and Agroecology.
