Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Specific leaf area, Range, Ecosystem and Botany. Biome, Nutrient, Limiting similarity, Species richness and Vegetation are the core of his Ecology study. William K. Cornwell works mostly in the field of Specific leaf area, limiting it down to topics relating to Soil fertility and, in certain cases, Soil chemistry.

The various areas that William K. Cornwell examines in his Range study include Biodiversity, Intraspecific competition, Tropics, Resistance and Biological dispersal. His Ecosystem research incorporates themes from Biomass, Plant community, Environmental change and Biogeochemical cycle. His Competition course of study focuses on Taxon and Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Picante: R tools for integrating phylogenies and ecology (2688 citations)
  • New handbook for standardised measurement of plant functional traits worldwide (1676 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Heart failure and Ecosystem. His Ecology research includes themes of Specific leaf area and Botany. William K. Cornwell has included themes like Coarse woody debris and Carbon cycle in his Botany study.

His work on Hemodynamics, Heart rate, Cardiac output and Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction as part of his general Internal medicine study is frequently connected to Continuous flow, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His work on Circulatory system as part of general Cardiology research is frequently linked to In patient, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Nutrient, Vegetation and Litter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (45.21%)
  • Internal medicine (26.40%)
  • Cardiology (23.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (26.40%)
  • Cardiology (23.10%)
  • Heart failure (15.84%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Heart failure, Ecology and Biodiversity. His study in the field of Ventricle, Diastole and Preload also crosses realms of In patient. His Cardiology study combines topics in areas such as Ventilatory threshold and Healthy aging.

His Heart failure research includes elements of Circulatory system, Contractility, Exercise capacity and Intensive care medicine. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Life history theory. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Citizen science, Ecology, Urban ecology, Environmental resource management and Conservation biology.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Fungal functional ecology: bringing a trait-based approach to plant-associated fungi. (35 citations)
  • A global database for metacommunity ecology, integrating species, traits, environment and space (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

William K. Cornwell spends much of his time researching Cardiology, Internal medicine, Heart failure, Ecology and Biodiversity. His work on Ventricle and Exercise capacity is typically connected to Beat and Extramural as part of general Cardiology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work on Right ventricular dysfunction, Lusitropy, Cardiac output and Preload as part of general Internal medicine study is frequently linked to In patient, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His work deals with themes such as Arterial stiffness, Arterial function and Intensive care medicine, which intersect with Heart failure. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trait based and Leaf size in addition to Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Citizen science, Ecology, Functional ecology, Spatial ecology and Systematic sampling as well as Biodiversity.
