Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Cristina Branquinho focuses on Ecology, Lichen, Environmental chemistry, Air pollution and Ecosystem. Her research brings together the fields of Environmental resource management and Ecology. Her Lichen study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Species richness, Terrestrial ecosystem and Pollution.

Cristina Branquinho combines subjects such as Soil science, Soil hydrology, Chlorophyll fluorescence and Water retention with her study of Environmental chemistry. Her research integrates issues of Biomonitoring and Bioindicator in her study of Air pollution. Her Ecosystem research integrates issues from Climate change and Mediterranean Basin.

Her most cited work include:

  • The cellular location of Cu in lichens and its effects on membrane integrity and chlorophyll fluorescence (126 citations)
  • Nitrogen deposition effects on Mediterranean-type ecosystems : an ecological assessment (113 citations)
  • Improving the use of lichens as biomonitors of atmospheric metal pollution (99 citations)

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

Lichen, Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental chemistry and Biodiversity are her primary areas of study. Her Lichen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Air pollution, Pollutant, Ecological indicator and Deposition. She has included themes like Environmental monitoring, Epiphyte, Pollution and Bioindicator in her Air pollution study.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Plant community, Biological dispersal, Climate change and Evergreen. Her work on Biomonitoring is typically connected to Ammonium as part of general Environmental chemistry study, connecting several disciplines of science. Her work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Urban ecosystem, Land use and Environmental resource management.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Lichen (32.97%)
  • Ecology (31.32%)
  • Ecosystem (23.08%)

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

  • Ecology (31.32%)
  • Ecosystem (23.08%)
  • Lichen (32.97%)

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

Cristina Branquinho spends much of her time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Lichen, Biodiversity and Mediterranean climate. Her study on Functional ecology, Plant community and Biodiversity hotspot is often connected to Trait and Trait theory as part of broader study in Ecology. Her Lichen research incorporates elements of Volcano, Ecological indicator and Habitat.

Her Ecological indicator study combines topics in areas such as Air pollution and Physical geography. Her Biodiversity research integrates issues from Risk analysis, Environmental planning and Ecosystem services. She has researched Mediterranean climate in several fields, including Green infrastructure, Climate change, Species richness and Microclimate.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Modeling the provision of air-quality regulation ecosystem service provided by urban green spaces using lichens as ecological indicators. (30 citations)
  • Towards an integrative approach to evaluate the environmental ecosystem services provided by urban forest (24 citations)
  • Selecting lichen functional traits as ecological indicators of the effects of urban environment. (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Cristina Branquinho mainly focuses on Mediterranean climate, Ecology, Ecological indicator, Ecosystem and Biodiversity. Her work on Lichen, Biodiversity hotspot, Shrub and Edaphic as part of general Ecology research is often related to Diversity, thus linking different fields of science. Her studies deal with areas such as Specific leaf area and Seedling as well as Lichen.

Her Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global biodiversity and Tree species, Platanus hispanica. Her Biodiversity research includes elements of Climate change, Identification and Environmental resource management. Her Environmental resource management study incorporates themes from Air pollution, Vegetation and Ecosystem services.
