Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biodiversity, Plant community, Species richness and Density dependence. Ecology is closely attributed to Janzen–Connell hypothesis in her work. Liza S. Comita combines subjects such as Abundance, Relative species abundance, Intraspecific competition, Herbivore and Seed predation with her study of Janzen–Connell hypothesis.
Her Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecosystem and Species diversity. Her Ecosystem research incorporates themes from Tropics, Temperate climate and Alpha diversity. Her study in Plant community is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Habitat fragmentation, Species distribution and Niche differentiation.
Liza S. Comita mainly focuses on Ecology, Seedling, Plant community, Habitat and Janzen–Connell hypothesis. In most of her Ecology studies, her work intersects topics such as Density dependence. Her research on Seedling also deals with topics like
Her Habitat research incorporates elements of Shrub and Biological dispersal. Liza S. Comita works mostly in the field of Janzen–Connell hypothesis, limiting it down to topics relating to Common species and, in certain cases, Interspecific competition and Rare species, as a part of the same area of interest. Liza S. Comita interconnects Temperate deciduous forest, Biodiversity and Species diversity in the investigation of issues within Species richness.
Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Panama, Janzen–Connell hypothesis, Herbivore and Natural enemies. Her Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Seed dispersal and Seedling. Her Panama study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nestedness and Relative species abundance.
Her Janzen–Connell hypothesis research includes elements of Plant community, Ecological systems theory, Climate change and Forest dynamics. Her Herbivore research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Germination, Species distribution, Adaptation, Local adaptation and Tree species. Liza S. Comita has researched Natural enemies in several fields, including Temperate forest, Density dependence and Diversity maintenance.
Liza S. Comita mostly deals with Ecology, Janzen–Connell hypothesis, Plant community, Mechanism and Resistance. Her study in Nestedness and Panama falls under the purview of Ecology. Her work deals with themes such as Climate change and Seed dispersal, which intersect with Janzen–Connell hypothesis.
The Seed dispersal study combines topics in areas such as Biodiversity, Ecological systems theory, Host and Herbivore. Her work carried out in the field of Plant community brings together such families of science as Quadrat, Forest dynamics, Competition, Biological dispersal and Seedling. Her study in Mechanism intersects with areas of studies such as Population bottleneck, Priority effect and Extinction.
