Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her primary areas of study are Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Environmental chemistry, Benthic zone and Organic matter. All of her Ecology and Community structure, Water quality, Nutrient, Water Framework Directive and Biota investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. Isabel Muñoz has researched Water quality in several fields, including River ecosystem, Water pollution and Drainage basin.

In her research, Hydrology is intimately related to Riparian zone, which falls under the overarching field of Mediterranean climate. Isabel Muñoz interconnects Biomass and Algae in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry. Her research integrates issues of Ecosystem respiration and Ecosystem in her study of Organic matter.

Her most cited work include:

  • Environmental risk assessment of pharmaceuticals in rivers: relationships between hazard indexes and aquatic macroinvertebrate diversity indexes in the Llobregat River (NE Spain). (294 citations)
  • Drought and postdrought recovery cycles in an intermittent Mediterranean stream: structural and functional aspects (227 citations)
  • Flow extremes and benthic organic matter shape the metabolism of a headwater Mediterranean stream (162 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Ecosystem, Benthic zone and Environmental chemistry. Her biological study deals with issues like Drainage basin, which deal with fields such as Water quality. Her study in Mediterranean climate is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biomass, Riparian forest, Riparian zone, Hydrology and Biogeochemistry.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Organic matter, Biodiversity and Aquatic ecosystem. Her Benthic zone research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Community structure and Botany. She works mostly in the field of Environmental chemistry, limiting it down to concerns involving Nutrient and, occasionally, Chlorophyll and Meiobenthos.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (60.66%)
  • Mediterranean climate (24.59%)
  • Ecosystem (19.67%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (60.66%)
  • Ecosystem (19.67%)
  • Trophic level (16.39%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Trophic level, River ecosystem and STREAMS. Her study deals with a combination of Ecology and Metacommunity. Isabel Muñoz combines subjects such as Macrophyte, Organic matter, Biodiversity, Biota and Environmental chemistry with her study of Ecosystem.

Her Organic matter study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hyporheic zone, Primary production, Water quality, Water resources and Aquatic ecosystem. She combines subjects such as Mediterranean climate, Herbivore, Terrestrial ecosystem and Species diversity with her study of Biodiversity. Her research investigates the link between STREAMS and topics such as Biogeochemical cycle that cross with problems in Detritus, Soil science, Dissolved organic carbon and Global change.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Effects of human-driven water stress on river ecosystems: a meta-analysis (38 citations)
  • Assessing the ecological effects of water stress and pollution in a temporary river - Implications for water management (30 citations)
  • Dam regulation and riverine food-web structure in a Mediterranean river. (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Isabel Muñoz focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Biota, Organic matter and Beta diversity. Her study in River ecosystem, Primary production, Freshwater ecosystem, Water quality and Water resources is done as part of Ecology. Her study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Macrophyte, Water pollution, Aquatic ecosystem and Nutrient, Eutrophication.

Her work deals with themes such as Trophic level, Food web, Mediterranean climate and Herbivore, which intersect with Biota. Her research integrates issues of Hyporheic zone, Effluent, Wastewater, Sewage treatment and Environmental chemistry in her study of Organic matter. The Beta diversity study combines topics in areas such as Riffle, Invertebrate and Vegetation.
