Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Nutrient, Plant community and Vegetation. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Lawn, Grazing, Herbivore, Adaptation and Plant litter. The various areas that he examines in his Grazing study include Biomass and Fire frequency.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil organic matter, Agronomy, Mineralization and Acacia saligna. His Plant community research includes themes of Dominance, Applied ecology, Threatened species and Niche. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biodiversity hotspot, Biodiversity, Species richness and Terrestrial ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Global patterns of foliar nitrogen isotopes and their relationships with climate, mycorrhizal fungi, foliar nutrient concentrations, and nitrogen availability (572 citations)
  • Rooting theories of plant community ecology in microbial interactions (524 citations)
  • Atmospheric Nitrogen Deposition in World Biodiversity Hotspots: the Need for a Greater Global Perspective in Assessing N Deposition Impacts (415 citations)

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

William D. Stock focuses on Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Nutrient. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Agroforestry. His work in Botany tackles topics such as Horticulture which are related to areas like Water-use efficiency, Water use and Transpiration.

The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Plant community, Biodiversity, Mediterranean climate and Nitrogen cycle. William D. Stock has included themes like Forest floor, Nitrogen fixation and Isotopes of nitrogen in his Agronomy study. In the subject of general Nutrient, his work in Nutrient cycle is often linked to Phosphorus, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (67.35%)
  • Botany (37.41%)
  • Ecosystem (27.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (67.35%)
  • Adaptation (6.80%)
  • Banksia (8.84%)

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

Ecology, Adaptation, Banksia, Threatened species and Ecosystem are his primary areas of study. His Ecology research integrates issues from Agroforestry, Specific leaf area and Population genetics. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Banksia, focusing on Vegetation and, on occasion, Physical geography, Woodland and Ehrharta calycina.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plant community, Mediterranean climate, Invasive species and Introduced species. His study looks at the relationship between Calyptorhynchus latirostris and topics such as Banksia attenuata, which overlap with Agronomy. His Functional ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lawn, Grassland and Grazing.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate-adjusted provenancing: a strategy for climate-resilient ecological restoration (148 citations)
  • Genome‐wide scans detect adaptation to aridity in a widespread forest tree species (77 citations)
  • Plasticity of functional traits varies clinally along a rainfall gradient in Eucalyptus tricarpa (77 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Adaptation, Population genetics, Local adaptation and Agroforestry. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Leaf size and Specific leaf area. William D. Stock interconnects Genomics, Genome, Gene family, Climate change and Convergent evolution in the investigation of issues within Adaptation.

His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Niche, Edaphic, Nutrient and Banksia. His research in Banksia tackles topics such as Endangered species which are related to areas like Banksia attenuata, Banksia menziesii, Vegetation and Prescribed burn. His Threatened species study combines topics in areas such as Ecosystem, Ecological release, Invasive species, Endemism and Plant community.
