His main research concerns Ecology, STREAMS, Ecosystem, Riparian zone and Land use. Ecology is frequently linked to Drainage basin in his study. He has included themes like Organic matter, Woodland, Botany, Fragmentation and Benthic zone in his STREAMS study.
Ernest F. Benfield interconnects Detritus and Litter in the investigation of issues within Organic matter. His research integrates issues of Trophic level, Dissolved organic carbon and Periphyton in his study of Ecosystem. His Riparian zone study combines topics in areas such as Watershed, Biodiversity, Agroforestry, Reforestation and Community structure.
Ecology, STREAMS, Ecosystem, Botany and Organic matter are his primary areas of study. His Riparian zone, Benthic zone, Land use, Plant litter and Species richness study are his primary interests in Ecology. His research in STREAMS intersects with topics in Watershed, Biomass, Agronomy, Drainage basin and Nutrient.
His Ecosystem research focuses on Periphyton and how it relates to Woodland. His Botany research incorporates themes from Cellulose and Horticulture. Ernest F. Benfield combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry, Dry weight and Litter with his study of Organic matter.
His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, STREAMS, Desmognathus quadramaculatus and Hemlock woolly adelgid. His work on Distance decay, Beta diversity and Invertebrate as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Lag and Simulated data, bridging the gap between disciplines. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Trophic level, Organic matter, Aquatic ecosystem and Community structure.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Reforestation, Agronomy, Hydrobiology, Nutrient and Environmental impact of agriculture in addition to STREAMS. His Hemlock woolly adelgid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nutrient cycle, Ecosystem respiration, Stream metabolism, Forest ecology and Forest floor. His Primary production research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Productivity, Biomass, Periphyton, Grassland and Biome.
His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, STREAMS, Trophic level and Plant litter. Ecosystem is closely attributed to Community structure in his work. His research in Community structure intersects with topics in Phosphorus, Aquatic ecosystem, Freshwater ecosystem and Acid rain.
He regularly links together related areas like Abundance in his Aquatic ecosystem studies. Ernest F. Benfield has included themes like Hemlock woolly adelgid, Tsuga and Riparian forest, Riparian zone in his Trophic level study. His Biome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biomass, Periphyton, Primary production, Productivity and Grassland.
