Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Soil water, Botany, Ecology and Soil organic matter. Her research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Topsoil, Biomass, Carbon dioxide, Bulk soil and Soil horizon. Her Soil water study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Environmental chemistry, Carbon cycle, Straw and Water content.

Her work carried out in the field of Botany brings together such families of science as Microcosm, Microbial population biology, Loam, Rhizosphere and Soil microbiology. Ellen Kandeler interconnects Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria in the investigation of issues within Microbial population biology. The various areas that Ellen Kandeler examines in her Soil organic matter study include Soil quality, Soil fertility and Glacier foreland, Ecological succession, Primary succession.

Her most cited work include:

  • Functional diversity of the soil microflora in primary succession across two glacier forelands in the Central Alps (174 citations)
  • Shifts in rhizosphere microbial communities and enzyme activity of Poa alpina across an alpine chronosequence (154 citations)
  • Six years of in situ CO2 enrichment evoke changes in soil structure and soil biota of nutrient‐poor grassland (144 citations)

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

Soil water, Agronomy, Ecology, Environmental chemistry and Botany are her primary areas of study. Ellen Kandeler combines subjects such as Abundance, Animal science and Water content with her study of Soil water. Her Agronomy research includes themes of Biomass, Soil fertility, Topsoil and Soil horizon.

Her work in Environmental chemistry tackles topics such as Organic matter which are related to areas like Humus and Mineralization. Her Botany research includes elements of Enzyme assay, Bacteria, Rhizosphere, Microbial population biology and Decomposer. As a part of the same scientific family, Ellen Kandeler mostly works in the field of Soil organic matter, focusing on Soil carbon and, on occasion, Carbon cycle.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (33.68%)
  • Agronomy (32.64%)
  • Ecology (24.31%)

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

  • Agronomy (32.64%)
  • Ecology (24.31%)
  • Soil water (33.68%)

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

Ellen Kandeler mainly focuses on Agronomy, Ecology, Soil water, Environmental chemistry and Microorganism. Her study looks at the intersection of Agronomy and topics like Biomass with Agroecosystem. Her Grassland, Ecosystem, Land use and Environment variable study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Trait based.

Her Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ingestion and Animal science. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anabolism, Soil carbon, Biodegradation and Soil test. Her studies in Microorganism integrate themes in fields like Dactylis glomerata, Microbial population biology, Pesticide degradation, Pesticide and Terrestrial ecosystem.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Hidden miners – the roles of cover crops and soil microorganisms in phosphorus cycling through agroecosystems (56 citations)
  • Assessment of biochar and zero-valent iron for in-situ remediation of chromated copper arsenate contaminated soil. (27 citations)
  • Functional Traits and Spatio-Temporal Structure of a Major Group of Soil Protists (Rhizaria: Cercozoa) in a Temperate Grassland. (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Her primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Soil test, Ecology, Grassland and Abiotic component. She has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Water content, Soil chemistry, Subsoil and Soil horizon. Her Soil chemistry research incorporates themes from Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Growing season and Soil organic matter, Bulk soil.

Her study in Soil test is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agroecosystem, Environmental chemistry, Microcosm, Biomass and Phosphorite. As part of her studies on Ecology, Ellen Kandeler often connects relevant areas like Cercozoa. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Nutrient, Organic matter and Rhizosphere is strongly linked to Microorganism.
