Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Willy Tinner focuses on Ecology, Holocene, Vegetation, Physical geography and Macrofossil. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Climatology, Ice core, Climate change, Paleoclimatology and Mediterranean climate. In his work, Quercus suber and Aridification is strongly intertwined with Evergreen, which is a subfield of Vegetation.

His research in Physical geography intersects with topics in Younger Dryas, Biomass, Climate model and Fire regime. The various areas that Willy Tinner examines in his Macrofossil study include Radiocarbon dating, Pinus , Palynology, Pinus cembra and Closed forest. The concepts of his Abies alba study are interwoven with issues in Beech and Disturbance.

His most cited work include:

  • Changes in Fire Regimes Since the Last Glacial Maximum: An Assessment Based on a Global Synthesis and Analysis of Charcoal Data (466 citations)
  • Long-term forest fire ecology and dynamics in southern Switzerland (316 citations)
  • Central European vegetation response to abrupt climate change at 8.2 ka (306 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Vegetation, Holocene, Climate change and Physical geography. His study in Macrofossil, Pollen, Abies alba, Fire ecology and Biodiversity is done as part of Ecology. His Vegetation research includes themes of Palynology, Ecosystem, Disturbance and Paleoecology.

His work carried out in the field of Holocene brings together such families of science as Mediterranean climate, Climatology and Paleoclimatology. His work in Mediterranean climate covers topics such as Evergreen which are related to areas like Deciduous. His studies in Physical geography integrate themes in fields like Deglaciation, Sediment and Tree line.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.31%)
  • Vegetation (54.69%)
  • Holocene (46.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Physical geography (27.50%)
  • Climate change (36.87%)
  • Vegetation (54.69%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Physical geography, Climate change, Vegetation, Holocene and Ecology. His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Period, Tundra, Macrofossil, Sediment and Plateau. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Macrofossil, Wood pasture and Pinus cembra is strongly linked to Range.

His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Prehistory, Temperate deciduous forest, Woodland and Land use. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Forestry, Boreal, Deforestation and Deciduous. The study incorporates disciplines such as Varve, Bronze Age, Biomass burning and Human settlement in addition to Holocene.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Seasonal shifts and complementary use of pollen sources by two bees, a lacewing and a ladybeetle species in European agricultural landscapes (19 citations)
  • Revising the sweet chestnut ( Castanea sativa Mill.) refugia history of the last glacial period with extended pollen and macrofossil evidence (18 citations)
  • What is the potential of silver fir to thrive under warmer and drier climate (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Willy Tinner mainly focuses on Ecology, Macrofossil, Vegetation, Climate change and Physical geography. Willy Tinner has included themes like Period, Varve, Sediment, Wiggle matching and Terrestrial plant in his Macrofossil study. His studies deal with areas such as Deforestation, Deciduous and Disturbance as well as Vegetation.

His Deciduous research incorporates elements of Arable land, Holocene, Quercus pubescens, Grassland and Erosion. His work deals with themes such as Species distribution, Abies alba and Cave, which intersect with Climate change. Willy Tinner interconnects Radiocarbon dating, Tundra, Dryas octopetala, Ecotone and Tree line in the investigation of issues within Physical geography.
