Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Plant community, Grassland and Species richness. His Ecology study is mostly concerned with Species diversity, Biodiversity, Grazing, Ecology and Biomass. His Primary production, Ecosystem dynamics and Ecosystem health study in the realm of Ecosystem interacts with subjects such as Context.

The Plant community study combines topics in areas such as Agroforestry, Spatial ecology, Spatial heterogeneity, Community structure and Abiotic component. His Grassland study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity, Shrubland and Shrub. His Species richness research integrates issues from Abundance, Cation-exchange capacity and Vegetation.

His most cited work include:

  • Rainfall variability, carbon cycling, and plant species diversity in a mesic grassland (839 citations)
  • Modulation of Diversity by Grazing and Mowing in Native Tallgrass Prairie (798 citations)
  • Functional- and abundance-based mechanisms explain diversity loss due to N fertilization (708 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Grassland, Plant community and Species richness. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Precipitation. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Biomass, Productivity, Climate change, Global change and Arid.

His Grassland study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Shrubland, Grazing and Growing season. The various areas that Scott L. Collins examines in his Plant community study include Agroforestry, Bouteloua eriopoda, Terrestrial ecosystem, Spatial heterogeneity and Community structure. He combines subjects such as Dominance and Abundance, Relative species abundance with his study of Species richness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.18%)
  • Ecosystem (28.35%)
  • Grassland (27.06%)

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

  • Ecology (64.18%)
  • Ecosystem (28.35%)
  • Grassland (27.06%)

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

Scott L. Collins mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Grassland, Agronomy and Climate change. Plant community, Biodiversity, Species richness, Vegetation and Terrestrial ecosystem are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. While the research belongs to areas of Species richness, he spends his time largely on the problem of Community composition, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Annual plant.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Biomass, Global change, Environmental resource management and Precipitation in addition to Ecosystem. His work carried out in the field of Grassland brings together such families of science as Agroforestry, Biological soil crust, Growing season, Bouteloua eriopoda and Eutrophication. His Agronomy research incorporates themes from Plant diversity, Dominance, Soil water and Nutrient.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil net nitrogen mineralisation across global grasslands (671 citations)
  • Drought consistently alters the composition of soil fungal and bacterial communities in grasslands from two continents. (68 citations)
  • Change in dominance determines herbivore effects on plant biodiversity (47 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Scott L. Collins spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Grassland, Plant community and Climate change. His research in Species richness, Biodiversity, Spatial heterogeneity, Relative species abundance and Terrestrial ecosystem are components of Ecology. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Plant ecology, Arid, Vegetation and Precipitation.

Scott L. Collins has researched Precipitation in several fields, including Biomass and Productivity. His research in Grassland intersects with topics in Bouteloua eriopoda and Foundation species. His work carried out in the field of Plant community brings together such families of science as Abundance, Pollution, Introduced species, Air pollution and Community structure.
