Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Dendrochronology, Fire ecology, Abies lasiocarpa and Nothofagus. His study in Forest dynamics, Ecological succession, Pinus contorta, Subalpine forest and Ecotone falls under the purview of Ecology. Thomas T. Veblen has researched Fire ecology in several fields, including Agroforestry, Fire regime, Vegetation type and Prescribed burn.

His Fire regime research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climatology, El Niño Southern Oscillation and Climate change. His Abies lasiocarpa study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Picea engelmannii and Dendroctonus rufipennis. His work on Nothofagus pumilio as part of general Nothofagus study is frequently linked to Saxegothaea, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Widespread increase of tree mortality rates in the western United States (1241 citations)
  • The Interaction of Fire, Fuels, and Climate across Rocky Mountain Forests (645 citations)
  • Plant succession : theory and prediction (388 citations)

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

Thomas T. Veblen mostly deals with Ecology, Vegetation, Nothofagus, Disturbance and Fire ecology. Thomas T. Veblen performs multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Outbreak in his works. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Araucaria, Ecological succession and Understory.

His Fire ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Shrubland and Physical geography. His Fire regime research integrates issues from Range, Climatology, Temperate rainforest and Woodland. His Dendroctonus rufipennis research incorporates elements of Picea engelmannii and Abies lasiocarpa.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (74.84%)
  • Vegetation (15.41%)
  • Nothofagus (15.09%)

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

  • Ecology (74.84%)
  • Climate change (12.89%)
  • Disturbance (13.84%)

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

Thomas T. Veblen mainly investigates Ecology, Climate change, Disturbance, Global warming and Ecosystem. Ecology and Outbreak are two areas of study in which Thomas T. Veblen engages in interdisciplinary research. Thomas T. Veblen interconnects Range, Montane ecology, Subalpine forest, Temperate climate and Species distribution in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

His research integrates issues of Forest management, Tree canopy, Dominance, Ecotone and Crown in his study of Disturbance. His Ecosystem course of study focuses on Global change and Cartography, Remote sensing, Spatial analysis and Land use. His work deals with themes such as Abundance, Picea engelmannii and Dendroctonus, which intersect with Abies lasiocarpa.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence for declining forest resilience to wildfires under climate change. (201 citations)
  • Wildfires and climate change push low-elevation forests across a critical climate threshold for tree regeneration. (102 citations)
  • Patterns and Drivers of Recent Disturbances Across the Temperate Forest Biome (73 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Ecology, Climate change, Ecosystem, Disturbance and Vegetation are his primary areas of study. Thomas T. Veblen merges many fields, such as Ecology and Outbreak, in his writings. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Subalpine forest, Temperate climate, Resistance, Teleconnection and Seedling.

His Disturbance research includes elements of Shrubland, Picea engelmannii and Abies lasiocarpa. Thomas T. Veblen combines subjects such as Growing season and Moisture availability, Precipitation with his study of Vegetation. His research in Fire regime tackles topics such as Ecology which are related to areas like Global warming.
