2017 - Fellow of the Ecological Society of America (ESA)
2005 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Grassland, Steppe and Grazing. His Spatial variability research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Species richness and Management science.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dominance, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Seasonality. The concepts of his Steppe study are interwoven with issues in Soil water, Soil horizon and Forage. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agroforestry and Herbivore.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Steppe, Agronomy and Grassland. His study in Plant community, Primary production, Soil water, Climate change and Biomass is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. His study focuses on the intersection of Ecosystem and fields such as Water balance with connections in the field of Arid and Transpiration.
William K. Lauenroth has researched Steppe in several fields, including Grazing, Bouteloua gracilis, Soil organic matter, Biogeochemical cycle and Nitrogen cycle. The various areas that William K. Lauenroth examines in his Grazing study include Forage and Herbivore. His Grassland research includes themes of Shrubland, Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Rangeland and Dominance.
William K. Lauenroth mainly focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Plant community and Soil water. Ecology and General interest are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary research. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ecosystem, Gap dynamics is strongly linked to Environmental resource management.
His studies deal with areas such as Temperate climate, Disturbance, Water balance, Arid and Ecohydrology as well as Climate change. His work deals with themes such as Shrub, Shrub-steppe, Species richness, Plant functional type and Global change, which intersect with Plant community. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biomass and Steppe.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Climate change, Temperate climate, Ecosystem and Plant community. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Steppe, overlaps with other areas such as Climatic data. His study in Climate change is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phenology, Agronomy, Growing season and Arid ecosystems.
His work focuses on many connections between Temperate climate and other disciplines, such as Soil water, that overlap with his field of interest in Ecology, Ecological modelling, Vegetation, Effects of global warming and Biomass. In general Ecosystem study, his work on Fire regime often relates to the realm of Limiting, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Plant community study also includes fields such as
