Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Jaime Kigel mainly investigates Ecology, Plant community, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Grazing. In the subject of general Ecology, his work in Vegetation, Species richness, Annual plant and Range is often linked to Environmental science, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Plant community research integrates issues from Nutrient cycle, Nutrient and Forb.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Nitrogen fixation, Inoculation, Azospirillum brasilense and Microbial inoculant in addition to Agronomy. His studies examine the connections between Ecosystem and genetics, as well as such issues in Biodiversity, with regards to Irrigation, Biomass and Climate change. His studies in Grazing integrate themes in fields like Perennial plant and Rangeland.

His most cited work include:

  • Assessing the effects of land-use change on plant traits, communities and ecosystem functioning in grasslands: a standardized methodology and lessons from an application to 11 European sites. (414 citations)
  • Vegetation response to grazing management in a Mediterranean herbaceous community: a functional group approach (264 citations)
  • Leaf traits capture the effects of land use changes and climate on litter decomposability of grasslands across Europe (224 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Agronomy, Botany, Mediterranean climate and Grazing. His study in Ecosystem, Plant community, Vegetation, Biomass and Species richness is done as part of Ecology. In his study, Nitrogen fixation, Setaria and Crop yield is inextricably linked to Inoculation, which falls within the broad field of Agronomy.

His work in the fields of Botany, such as Dormancy, Gibberellin and Shoot, intersects with other areas such as Elongation. His study on Quercus calliprinos is often connected to Environmental science as part of broader study in Mediterranean climate. Many of his research projects under Grazing are closely connected to Sarcopoterium with Sarcopoterium, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (40.59%)
  • Agronomy (32.67%)
  • Botany (29.70%)

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

  • Mediterranean climate (26.73%)
  • Ecology (40.59%)
  • Environmental science (15.84%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mediterranean climate, Ecology, Environmental science, Arid and Grazing. His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Woodland and Annual plant as well as Mediterranean climate. In his articles, he combines various disciplines, including Ecology and Vegetation.

Jaime Kigel integrates several fields in his works, including Environmental science, Vegetation, Ecosystem and Spatial heterogeneity. When carried out as part of a general Ecosystem research project, his work on Primary production is frequently linked to work in Atmospheric sciences, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. In Arid, he works on issues like Agronomy, which are connected to Vernalization.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Few multiyear precipitation-reduction experiments find a shift in the productivity-precipitation relationship (67 citations)
  • Spatial and temporal activity of cattle grazing in Mediterranean oak woodland (19 citations)
  • Seedling Emergence and Phenotypic Response of Common Bean Germplasm to Different Temperatures under Controlled Conditions and in Open Field (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Jaime Kigel mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental science, Grazing and Mediterranean climate. As part of one scientific family, Jaime Kigel deals mainly with the area of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to issues related to the Productivity, and often Natural range. His Grazing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quercus calliprinos, Woodland and Abiotic component.

Many of his studies on Abiotic component involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Vegetation. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biosphere, Growing season, Leaf area index, Carbon cycle and Evapotranspiration. His work carried out in the field of Mediterranean climate brings together such families of science as Biomass, Primary production, Stocking, Grassland and Species diversity.
