Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Ecosystem, Climate change and Competition. His study in Forest ecology, Phenotypic plasticity, Ecological succession, Plant ecology and Niche differentiation falls under the purview of Ecology. Miguel A. Zavala has researched Phenotypic plasticity in several fields, including Range, Species distribution and Local adaptation.

His work deals with themes such as Plant community and Regeneration, which intersect with Mediterranean climate. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Forest management, Biodiversity, Species richness and Precipitation. His Global change study, which is part of a larger body of work in Climate change, is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantitative estimation of phenotypic plasticity : bridging the gap between the evolutionary concept and its ecological applications (552 citations)
  • The effects of phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation on forecasts of species range shifts under climate change (489 citations)
  • Rate of tree carbon accumulation increases continuously with tree size. (451 citations)

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

Miguel A. Zavala spends much of his time researching Ecology, Mediterranean climate, Climate change, Ecosystem and Competition. His study in Range, Forest ecology, Forest inventory, Species distribution and Basal area falls within the category of Ecology. As a part of the same scientific study, Miguel A. Zavala usually deals with the Mediterranean climate, concentrating on Ecological succession and frequently concerns with Aleppo Pine.

The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in North Atlantic oscillation, Precipitation and Environmental resource management. Miguel A. Zavala has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Forest management, Biodiversity and Species richness. His Competition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Tree, Plant ecology and Interspecific competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (85.37%)
  • Mediterranean climate (31.10%)
  • Climate change (24.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (85.37%)
  • Climate change (24.39%)
  • Species distribution (12.80%)

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

Miguel A. Zavala mainly focuses on Ecology, Climate change, Species distribution, Basal area and Tree species. He regularly ties together related areas like Tree in his Ecology studies. His studies in Climate change integrate themes in fields like Terrestrial ecosystem, Leaf area index and Land use.

His Species distribution course of study focuses on Extinction and Colonization and Metapopulation. His research on Basal area also deals with topics like

  • Forest dynamics that connect with fields like Deserts and xeric shrublands, Stand development, Drought tolerance and Pinus pinaster,
  • Agronomy, Coppicing, Thinning and Shoot most often made with reference to Canopy. His study looks at the relationship between Tree species and topics such as Physical geography, which overlap with Range, Altitude, Global change, Temperate forest and Risk analysis.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identifying the tree species compositions that maximize ecosystem functioning in European forests (23 citations)
  • Available and missing data to model impact of climate change on European forests (13 citations)
  • Structural diversity underpins carbon storage in Australian temperate forests (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Climate change, Forest inventory, Basal area and Juvenile. His Ecology study typically links adjacent topics like Drought tolerance. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Land use, Leaf area index, Environmental resource management and Missing data.

His Forest inventory research integrates issues from Biotic component, Abiotic component, Temperate rainforest and Biodiversity. Miguel A. Zavala interconnects Canopy, Beech, Forest dynamics, Dominance and Ecotone in the investigation of issues within Basal area. His research in Species richness intersects with topics in Forest ecology, Ecosystem, Tree species and Temperate climate.
