Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Heikki Setälä focuses on Ecology, Soil biology, Ecosystem, Soil food web and Trophic level. Food web, Biomass, Biodiversity, Decomposer and Microcosm are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study. His Biodiversity course of study focuses on Terrestrial ecosystem and Primary production, Ecosystem ecology, Ecology and Biota.

His Soil biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil carbon, Agronomy, Fauna, Soil biodiversity and Plant community. His Ecosystem research focuses on Ecosystem services in particular. Heikki Setälä combines subjects such as Species diversity and Soil ecology with his study of Soil food web.

His most cited work include:

  • EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY ON ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING: A CONSENSUS OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE (5255 citations)
  • Ecological linkages between aboveground and belowground biota. (2805 citations)
  • Long-term organic farming fosters below and aboveground biota: Implications for soil quality, biological control and productivity (350 citations)

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

Heikki Setälä mainly focuses on Ecology, Soil biology, Agronomy, Soil water and Ecosystem. Ecology is represented through his Biomass, Food web, Trophic level, Biodiversity and Soil food web research. His Soil biology research includes elements of Microcosm, Humus, Fauna, Botany and Decomposer.

His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil carbon and Biochar. His Ecosystem research is mostly focused on the topic Ecosystem services. His work carried out in the field of Environmental resource management brings together such families of science as Total human ecosystem and Ecosystem health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (38.24%)
  • Soil biology (25.98%)
  • Agronomy (19.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (38.24%)
  • Ecosystem services (11.76%)
  • Soil water (18.63%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem services, Soil water, Hydrology and Vegetation are his primary areas of study. His Ecology and Ecosystem, Biomass, Biodiversity, Ruderal species and Soil biology investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. He is studying Soil food web, which is a component of Ecosystem.

His Soil biology research includes themes of Soil biodiversity and Soil contamination. His research integrates issues of Lawn, Sustainability, Urban ecology and Environmental resource management in his study of Ecosystem services. The various areas that he examines in his Soil water study include Forestry, Total organic carbon and Agronomy.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Intensive agriculture reduces soil biodiversity across Europe (324 citations)
  • Benefits of restoring ecosystem services in urban areas (275 citations)
  • Soil nematode abundance and functional group composition at a global scale (160 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services, Surface runoff and Hydrology. His Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Biomass, Biodiversity, Deciduous and Urban ecology. His research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Soil biology, Species richness and Soil biodiversity.

The Soil biology study combines topics in areas such as Ecosystem management, Intensive farming and Nitrogen cycle. His work deals with themes such as Urban ecosystem, Sustainability, Vegetation and Environmental resource management, which intersect with Ecosystem services. His Hydrology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pollutant and Urban area.
