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, Ecosystem, Nutrient, Amazon rainforest and Agronomy. His Ecology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Agroforestry. His work on Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests as part of general Agroforestry research is frequently linked to Biodiversity action plan, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biomass and Tropics. His research in Nutrient focuses on subjects like Litter, which are connected to Soil horizon and Soil classification. His study looks at the relationship between Agronomy and topics such as Seasonality, which overlap with Plant litter.

His most cited work include:

  • Seasonally dry tropical forests (796 citations)
  • The canopy effect, carbon isotope ratios and foodwebs in Amazonia (388 citations)
  • Nutrient dynamics within amazonian forests (331 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Nutrient, Botany and Biodiversity. Ernesto Medina conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and δ13C through his works. His work deals with themes such as Biomass, Agronomy, Environmental resource management and Amazon rainforest, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His Nutrient research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Elevation, Specific leaf area, Biogeochemical cycle and Pollutant. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Soil water, Horticulture and Mangrove. His studies deal with areas such as Agroforestry and Introduced species as well as Biodiversity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (66.67%)
  • Ecosystem (29.49%)
  • Nutrient (38.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (66.67%)
  • Botany (37.18%)
  • Nutrient (38.46%)

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

Ernesto Medina mainly investigates Ecology, Botany, Nutrient, Soil water and Introduced species. His research integrates issues of Photosynthesis and Ecophysiology in his study of Ecology. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Laguncularia racemosa, Rhizophora, Mangrove and Salinity.

His Nutrient research includes themes of Elevation, Atmospheric sciences, Terrestrial ecosystem and Pollutant. His research investigates the connection between Soil water and topics such as Calcareous that intersect with problems in Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Litter, Water-use efficiency and Karst. He combines subjects such as Photosynthetic capacity, Dominance, Shrubland and Tropics with his study of Introduced species.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Substrate Chemistry and Rainfall Regime Regulate Elemental Composition of Tree Leaves in Karst Forests (8 citations)
  • Heterogeneity of elemental composition and natural abundance of stables isotopes of C and N in soils and leaves of mangroves at their southernmost West Atlantic range (5 citations)
  • Heterogeneity of elemental composition and natural abundance of stables isotopes of C and N in soils and leaves of mangroves at their southernmost West Atlantic range (5 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary scientific interests are in Soil water, Soil horizon, Mangrove, Soil salinity and Laguncularia racemosa. His Soil water research incorporates elements of Nutrient, Water-use efficiency, Karst, Vegetation and Calcareous. His Soil horizon research includes elements of Rhizophora mangle, Organic matter and Botany.
