Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His main research concerns Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Soil water and Glomalin. The Botany study combines topics in areas such as Arbuscular mycorrhiza, Symbiosis, Mycorrhiza and Nutrient. His Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Plant ecology, Abundance, Biodiversity and Sustainability.

Within one scientific family, Matthias C. Rillig focuses on topics pertaining to Environmental chemistry under Soil water, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Carbon dioxide, Food web, Microfauna and Mineralization. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil structure, Soil carbon, Fungal protein and Microbiology. Matthias C. Rillig combines subjects such as Soil classification, Agroforestry and Agronomy with his study of Soil biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Biochar effects on soil biota – A review (2299 citations)
  • Mycorrhizas and soil structure (982 citations)
  • Mycorrhizal responses to biochar in soil – concepts and mechanisms (731 citations)

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

Matthias C. Rillig spends much of his time researching Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Soil water. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Arbuscular mycorrhiza, Nutrient, Glomalin and Mycorrhiza. His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Abundance and Microbial population biology as well as Ecosystem.

The concepts of his Agronomy study are interwoven with issues in Soil fertility, Biomass, Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and Biochar. His study in Soil water concentrates on Soil biology and Soil carbon. His Soil biology study incorporates themes from Soil structure, Microplastics and Biota.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (43.79%)
  • Botany (27.40%)
  • Ecosystem (22.95%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Ecology (43.79%)
  • Environmental chemistry (6.79%)
  • Microplastics (6.09%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Environmental chemistry, Microplastics, Ecosystem and Soil water. His study in Biomass, Soil biodiversity, Biodiversity, Ecology and Species richness is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil structure, Nutrient and Soil respiration.

His research investigates the connection between Microplastics and topics such as Biomass that intersect with problems in Daucus carota and Agronomy. Matthias C. Rillig has included themes like Botany and Global change in his Ecosystem study. His work deals with themes such as Plant community and Microbial population biology, which intersect with Soil water.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global ecosystem thresholds driven by aridity (80 citations)
  • Microplastic in terrestrial ecosystems (58 citations)
  • The fungal collaboration gradient dominates the root economics space in plants. (49 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Microplastics, Soil water and Soil biodiversity. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Metacommunity. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Categorical variable, Ecology, Species richness and Soil fertility.

His Ecology research incorporates themes from Terrestrial ecosystem and Abiotic component. He interconnects Biomass, Plant community and Organic matter in the investigation of issues within Soil water. As part of the same scientific family, Matthias C. Rillig usually focuses on Soil biodiversity, concentrating on Biodiversity and intersecting with Spatial ecology.
