Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Trophic level and Plant litter. His study in Food web, Community, Species richness, Ecosystem services and Invertebrate are all subfields of Ecology. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxonomic rank, Biodiversity and Species diversity.

The concepts of his Soil biology study are interwoven with issues in Climate change and Soil fertility. His Trophic level study incorporates themes from Ecosystem engineer, Niche theory, Functional redundancy, Collembola and Ecosystem diversity. His Plant litter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Monoculture, Agronomy, Litter, Interspecific competition and Decomposer.

His most cited work include:

  • Towards an assessment of multiple ecosystem processes and services via functional traits (561 citations)
  • Soil invertebrate fauna enhances grassland succession and diversity (459 citations)
  • Biodiversity effects on soil processes explained by interspecific functional dissimilarity. (408 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Biodiversity and Plant litter. Ecology is represented through his Species richness, Habitat, Litter, Trophic level and Species diversity research. The Ecosystem study which covers Climate change that intersects with Abiotic component.

Matty P. Berg focuses mostly in the field of Soil biology, narrowing it down to matters related to Agronomy and, in some cases, Plant community and Vegetation. Matty P. Berg works mostly in the field of Biodiversity, limiting it down to concerns involving Fauna and, occasionally, Bark. His Plant litter research includes themes of Terrestrial ecosystem, Decomposer and Interspecific competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (97.24%)
  • Ecosystem (51.97%)
  • Soil biology (30.31%)

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

  • Ecology (97.24%)
  • Ecosystem (51.97%)
  • Soil biology (30.31%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Biodiversity and Plant litter. His study in Species richness, Habitat, Terrestrial ecosystem, Resistance and Invertebrate is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Climate change, Competition and Growing season.

Matty P. Berg interconnects Soil organic matter, Nutrient cycle and Ecosystem engineer in the investigation of issues within Soil biology. He has included themes like Soil biodiversity and Species diversity in his Biodiversity study. His Plant litter study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rhizosphere, Litter and Interspecific competition.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Salt Marsh Elevation Drives Root Microbial Composition of the Native Invasive Grass Elytrigia atherica. (21 citations)
  • Tree leaf and root traits mediate soil faunal contribution to litter decomposition across an elevational gradient (21 citations)
  • Tree leaf and root traits mediate soil faunal contribution to litter decomposition across an elevational gradient (21 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Matty P. Berg focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Species richness, Terrestrial ecosystem and Plant litter. His research in Resistance, Soil biology, Interspecific competition, Competition and Growing season are components of Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nutrient cycle, Forest ecology, Decomposer and Litter in addition to Soil biology.

His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Climate change and Environmental planning. Matty P. Berg has researched Species richness in several fields, including Abundance, Biodiversity, Coarse woody debris, Habitat and Phylogenetic tree. His Terrestrial ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Relative species abundance, Soil ecology, Global warming, Diversity index and Biological dispersal.
