Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Biodiversity and Mycorrhiza are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Soil biodiversity, Agroforestry, Species richness and Agriculture in his study of Ecosystem. The Species richness study which covers Terrestrial ecosystem that intersects with Nutrient, Mineralization and Calcareous grassland.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil chemistry and Soil microbiology. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Productivity under Biodiversity, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Monoculture, Biomass and Competition. Marcel G. A. van der Heijden interconnects Plant ecology, Agronomy, Abiotic component and Festuca ovina in the investigation of issues within Mycorrhiza.

His most cited work include:

  • Mycorrhizal fungal diversity determines plant biodiversity, ecosystem variability and productivity (2698 citations)
  • The unseen majority: Soil microbes as drivers of plant diversity and productivity in terrestrial ecosystems (2521 citations)
  • Soil biodiversity and soil community composition determine ecosystem multifunctionality (754 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem and Symbiosis. His work carried out in the field of Agronomy brings together such families of science as Soil biology, Soil water, Nutrient and Organic farming. As part of the same scientific family, Marcel G. A. van der Heijden usually focuses on Ecology, concentrating on Microbial ecology and intersecting with Taxon.

He has researched Botany in several fields, including Rhizosphere, Plant nutrition, Mycorrhiza and Soil microbiology. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Microcosm, Biodiversity, Ecology, Species richness and Ecological engineering. His work deals with themes such as Mutualism and Root microbiome, which intersect with Symbiosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (59.66%)
  • Ecology (57.94%)
  • Botany (48.93%)

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

  • Ecology (57.94%)
  • Agronomy (59.66%)
  • Ecosystem (44.21%)

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

Marcel G. A. van der Heijden mainly investigates Ecology, Agronomy, Ecosystem, Organic farming and Botany. Many of his research projects under Ecology are closely connected to Diversity and Diversity with Diversity and Diversity, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Marcel G. A. van der Heijden usually deals with Soil biodiversity and limits it to topics linked to Agroforestry and Soil fertility.

His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Taxon, Biodiversity, Species richness and Community structure. Marcel G. A. van der Heijden studied Organic farming and Intensive farming that intersect with Soil organic matter, Sustainability and Soil biology. His work in the fields of Botany, such as Exudate, overlaps with other areas such as Arabidopsis thaliana.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Keystone taxa as drivers of microbiome structure and functioning (350 citations)
  • Keystone taxa as drivers of microbiome structure and functioning (350 citations)
  • Root exudate metabolites drive plant-soil feedbacks on growth and defense by shaping the rhizosphere microbiota (257 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Agriculture, Abundance and Microbial ecology. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Microcosm, Species richness and Grassland. His Microbial ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxon, Biodiversity, Phylogenetics and Community structure.

His research integrates issues of Agricultural diversification, Food security, Soil fertility and Ecosystem services in his study of Biodiversity. In his study, Sustainability and Mycorrhiza is strongly linked to Agroforestry, which falls under the umbrella field of Cropping. His Agronomy research includes elements of Soil management and Nutrient.
