Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary areas of study are Taiga, Ecology, Forestry, Boreal and Vegetation. Yves Bergeron has included themes like Climatology, Climate change, Fire ecology, Disturbance and Fire regime in his Taiga study. His work on Ecological succession, Chronosequence and Black spruce is typically connected to Spruce budworm as part of general Ecology study, connecting several disciplines of science.

The concepts of his Forestry study are interwoven with issues in Dendrochronology, Canopy, Woody plant and Chronology. His work in the fields of Boreal, such as Boreal ecosystem, intersects with other areas such as Poison control. His research investigates the connection between Vegetation and topics such as Physical geography that intersect with problems in Tree species.

His most cited work include:

  • Natural fire regime : a guide for sustainable management of the Canadian boreal forest (410 citations)
  • Natural fire frequency for the eastern Canadian boreal forest: consequences for sustainable forestry (373 citations)
  • SPECIES AND STAND DYNAMICS IN THE MIXED WOODS OF QUEBEC'S SOUTHERN BOREAL FOREST (354 citations)

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

Yves Bergeron mostly deals with Taiga, Ecology, Boreal, Black spruce and Forestry. His Taiga research incorporates elements of Climate change, Disturbance, Fire regime, Vegetation and Physical geography. He frequently studies issues relating to Abies balsamea and Ecology.

His studies deal with areas such as Forest management, Dendrochronology, Climatology and Growing season as well as Boreal. In his study, Productivity is strongly linked to Paludification, which falls under the umbrella field of Black spruce. He combines subjects such as Agroforestry, Canopy and Woody plant with his study of Forestry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Taiga (73.92%)
  • Ecology (65.54%)
  • Boreal (43.24%)

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

  • Taiga (73.92%)
  • Boreal (43.24%)
  • Ecology (65.54%)

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

Yves Bergeron focuses on Taiga, Boreal, Ecology, Black spruce and Climate change. His research on Taiga concerns the broader Forestry. His work carried out in the field of Forestry brings together such families of science as Biodiversity, Ecological succession and Canopy.

His Boreal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Growing season, Frost, Flood myth, Physical geography and Dominance. His Black spruce research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Abies balsamea, Balsam, Agronomy, Sphagnum and Biome. His Climate change research includes elements of Larix sibirica, Host and Paleoecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • North America's oldest boreal trees are more efficient water users due to increased [CO2], but do not grow faster. (44 citations)
  • North America's oldest boreal trees are more efficient water users due to increased [CO2], but do not grow faster. (44 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Yves Bergeron mainly focuses on Boreal, Taiga, Ecology, Black spruce and Climate change. Yves Bergeron has included themes like Biomass, Nutrient, Physical geography and Water-use efficiency in his Boreal study. Taiga is a subfield of Forestry that Yves Bergeron tackles.

When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Species distribution, Range, Forest ecology and Biodiversity is frequently linked to work in Genetic isolate, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Black spruce study combines topics in areas such as Regeneration, Serotiny, Agronomy, Paludification and Biome. His study in Climate change is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Growing season and Temperate climate.
