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, Biomass, Ecosystem, Grassland and Climate change. Xianzhou Zhang specializes in Ecology, namely Species diversity. His Biomass research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Global warming, Soil carbon and Altitude.

His study looks at the intersection of Ecosystem and topics like Nutrient with Perennial plant and Botany. His research integrates issues of Overgrazing, Grazing and Transect in his study of Grassland. His studies deal with areas such as Primary production, Soil water, Soil test, Biomass carbon and Physical geography as well as Climate change.

His most cited work include:

  • Mutual influence between human activities and climate change in the Tibetan Plateau during recent years (257 citations)
  • The impact of climate change and anthropogenic activities on alpine grassland over the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (245 citations)
  • Diurnal and seasonal variability of soil CO2 efflux in a cropland ecosystem on the Tibetan Plateau (90 citations)

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

Xianzhou Zhang mainly focuses on Ecosystem, Ecology, Grassland, Climate change and Atmospheric sciences. His Agronomy research extends to Ecosystem, which is thematically connected. Xianzhou Zhang studied Grassland and Grazing that intersect with Rangeland.

In Climate change, Xianzhou Zhang works on issues like Precipitation, which are connected to Temperate climate. His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Hydrology, Eddy covariance and Photosynthetically active radiation. As part of one scientific family, Xianzhou Zhang deals mainly with the area of Primary production, narrowing it down to issues related to the Vegetation, and often Soil science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecosystem (42.57%)
  • Ecology (35.14%)
  • Grassland (29.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Climate change (27.70%)
  • Ecosystem (42.57%)
  • Grassland (29.73%)

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

Xianzhou Zhang focuses on Climate change, Ecosystem, Grassland, Physical geography and Precipitation. His Climate change research incorporates themes from Climatology, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem management, Livestock and Carbon cycle. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Biodiversity and Cycling.

The various areas that Xianzhou Zhang examines in his Physical geography study include Global warming, Vegetation and Climate change scenario. His work in Precipitation covers topics such as Atmospheric sciences which are related to areas like Terrestrial ecosystem, Ecosystem respiration and Rain use efficiency. His Steppe research is within the category of Ecology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spatiotemporal pattern of gross primary productivity and its covariation with climate in China over the last thirty years. (73 citations)
  • Increased precipitation has stronger effects on plant production of an alpine meadow than does experimental warming in the Northern Tibetan Plateau (35 citations)
  • Contrasting responses of grassland water and carbon exchanges to climate change between Tibetan Plateau and Inner Mongolia (30 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Xianzhou Zhang spends much of his time researching Ecosystem, Climate change, Grassland, Ecology and Primary production. In his study, Diversity index and Productivity is inextricably linked to Biodiversity, which falls within the broad field of Ecosystem. The study incorporates disciplines such as Eddy covariance, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation, Livestock and Physical geography in addition to Climate change.

While the research belongs to areas of Physical geography, Xianzhou Zhang spends his time largely on the problem of Global warming, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Soil carbon. His work carried out in the field of Grassland brings together such families of science as Agroforestry, Overgrazing, Sustainability, Sustainable management and Forage. Ecology is represented through his Steppe and Growing season research.
