Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His main research concerns Ecology, Taiga, Botany, Scots pine and Ecosystem. Marie-Charlotte Nilsson integrates many fields, such as Ecology and Species distribution, in his works. His Taiga research includes elements of Forest floor, Humus, Chronosequence and Nitrogen cycle.

Marie-Charlotte Nilsson interconnects Species richness and Mycorrhiza in the investigation of issues within Botany. His Scots pine research integrates issues from Shrub, Empetrum, Agronomy, Allelopathy and Piloderma. In his work, Plant litter and Microcosm is strongly intertwined with Ecological succession, which is a subfield of Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • The role of biotic interactions in shaping distributions and realised assemblages of species: implications for species distribution modelling. (887 citations)
  • Understory vegetation as a forest ecosystem driver: evidence from the northern Swedish boreal forest (523 citations)
  • Fire-derived charcoal causes loss of forest humus. (460 citations)

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

Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Taiga and Pleurozium schreberi are his primary areas of study. As part of the same scientific family, Marie-Charlotte Nilsson usually focuses on Botany, concentrating on Nutrient and intersecting with Forest ecology and Organic matter. His work deals with themes such as Biomass, Biodiversity, Productivity and Species diversity, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His studies in Taiga integrate themes in fields like Global warming, Ecological succession, Chronosequence and Humus. His Pleurozium schreberi research includes themes of Nitrogen fixation and Clearcutting. His work in Scots pine addresses subjects such as Agronomy, which are connected to disciplines such as Canopy and Picea abies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (46.97%)
  • Botany (44.70%)
  • Ecosystem (29.55%)

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

  • Ecology (46.97%)
  • Taiga (28.03%)
  • Ecosystem (29.55%)

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

Marie-Charlotte Nilsson mostly deals with Ecology, Taiga, Ecosystem, Seedling and Botany. Marie-Charlotte Nilsson has researched Taiga in several fields, including Functional group, Boreal, Post fire succession and Understory. His Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Productivity, Soil water, Microfauna and Biodiversity.

In his research, Growing season is intimately related to Bryophyte, which falls under the overarching field of Seedling. His Botany research incorporates themes from Stand development and Clearcutting. His Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Canopy and Scots pine.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Interactions with soil biota shift from negative to positive when a tree species is moved outside its native range (77 citations)
  • The ratio of Gram-positive to Gram-negative bacterial PLFA markers as an indicator of carbon availability in organic soils (71 citations)
  • Consistent effects of biodiversity loss on multifunctionality across contrasting ecosystems. (48 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Taiga, Soil biology and Botany. Marie-Charlotte Nilsson performs integrative Ecology and Environmental gradient research in his work. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Competition and Fungal Diversity.

His study in Taiga is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Global warming, Climate change and Understory. His Soil biology research includes elements of Soil classification, Agronomy, Pinus contorta and Ectomycorrhiza. His study in the fields of Moss, Deciduous, Evergreen and Seedling under the domain of Botany overlaps with other disciplines such as Phosphorus.
