Steven I. Higgins spends much of his time researching Ecology, Climate change, Vegetation, Biological dispersal and Introduced species. He regularly links together related areas like Simulation modeling in his Ecology studies. The Global change research Steven I. Higgins does as part of his general Climate change study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Vegetation, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
Steven I. Higgins has included themes like Biomass, Agroforestry, Herbivore and Woody plant in his Vegetation study. His Herbivore research integrates issues from Plant cover, Canopy, Woodland and Basal area. His work deals with themes such as Quantitative ecology, Range, Colonisation and Plant functional type, which intersect with Biological dispersal.
Steven I. Higgins focuses on Ecology, Vegetation, Ecosystem, Biome and Climate change. His Biological dispersal research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. As a part of the same scientific family, Steven I. Higgins mostly works in the field of Biological dispersal, focusing on Range and, on occasion, Abundance.
His research integrates issues of Agroforestry and Woody plant in his study of Vegetation. The various areas that Steven I. Higgins examines in his Ecosystem study include Arid and Plant ecology. His work on Global change as part of general Climate change study is frequently linked to Poison control, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
Steven I. Higgins mainly focuses on Biome, Ecology, Vegetation, Biomass and Diversification. His Biome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Dynamic global vegetation model, Potential natural vegetation and Climate change, Global change. His work focuses on many connections between Climate change and other disciplines, such as Ecosystem services, that overlap with his field of interest in Limiting similarity and Terrestrial ecosystem.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Persistence and Precipitation. His Vegetation study incorporates themes from Shrub and Trade-off. The Biomass study combines topics in areas such as Remote sensing, Crown and Transpiration.
Steven I. Higgins mostly deals with Biome, Vegetation, Ecology, Biomass and Agronomy. His Biome research includes themes of Range, Deserts and xeric shrublands, Seasonality, Climate classification and Terrestrial ecosystem. He interconnects Earth system science and Biogeochemistry in the investigation of issues within Vegetation.
His study in Ecology focuses on Global change and Tropics. His Biomass study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Allometry, Precipitation, Plant community, Spatial distribution and Abiotic component. Steven I. Higgins has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Arid, Dominance and Botany.
