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, Biodiversity, Stipa tenacissima and Species richness. His work in Competition, Shrub, Abiotic component, Plant community and Abundance is related to Ecology. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil biology, Species evenness and Soil microbiology.

His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecosystem services, Environmental change, Climate change, Global change and Environmental resource management. His Stipa tenacissima research includes themes of Soil science, Grassland and Tussock. His study looks at the relationship between Species richness and fields such as Species diversity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Desertification: Building a Science for Dryland Development (1521 citations)
  • Facilitation in plant communities: the past, the present, and the future (1224 citations)
  • Refining the stress-gradient hypothesis for competition and facilitation in plant communities (836 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Species richness and Climate change. His research in Plant community, Abiotic component, Arid, Abundance and Stipa tenacissima are components of Ecology. The concepts of his Abiotic component study are interwoven with issues in Spatial ecology and Plant cover.

His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Soil water, Agronomy and Lichen. Fernando T. Maestre has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Soil biodiversity and Environmental resource management. Fernando T. Maestre interconnects Soil carbon, Atmospheric sciences, Biome and Ecosystem services in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (73.68%)
  • Ecosystem (52.92%)
  • Biodiversity (20.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Ecosystem (52.92%)
  • Ecology (73.68%)
  • European research (6.14%)

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

Fernando T. Maestre spends much of his time researching Ecosystem, Ecology, European research, Biodiversity and Climate change. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental chemistry, Biomass and Rangeland. Ecology is represented through his Soil water, Species richness, Arid, Relative species abundance and Abundance research.

In his research, Soil governance, Global change and Land use is intimately related to Ecosystem services, which falls under the overarching field of Species richness. His research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Spatial ecology, Regional science, Environmental resource management and Soil microbiology. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Photosynthesis, Field experiment, Soil fertility, Lichen and Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global ecosystem thresholds driven by aridity (80 citations)
  • The global-scale distributions of soil protists and their contributions to belowground systems (35 citations)
  • The global-scale distributions of soil protists and their contributions to belowground systems (35 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Fernando T. Maestre mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Soil water and European research. Fernando T. Maestre mostly deals with Climate change in his studies of Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Soil biodiversity and Taxonomic rank.

His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil pH and Soil microbiology. His Loam study in the realm of Soil water interacts with subjects such as Water flow. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plant cover and Species richness in addition to Arid.
