Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Tropics and Carbon cycle. Her Ecology research focuses on Plant litter and Soil water. Her Ecosystem research incorporates themes from Agronomy and Mineralization.

In general Climate change study, her work on Global change often relates to the realm of Elevation and Ice age, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The various areas that Norma Salinas examines in her Global change study include Atmospheric sciences, Stomatal conductance, Evapotranspiration, Biome and Transpiration. Her work deals with themes such as Biosphere, Photosynthetic capacity, Herbaceous plant, Woody plant and Arid, which intersect with Tropics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Temperature sensitivity of soil respiration rates enhanced by microbial community response (325 citations)
  • Net primary productivity allocation and cycling of carbon along a tropical forest elevational transect in the Peruvian Andes. (262 citations)
  • Optimal stomatal behaviour around the world (214 citations)

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

Norma Salinas spends much of her time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Elevation, Agronomy and Amazon rainforest. Her Productivity, Carbon cycle, Soil carbon and Nutrient study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Altitude. The Carbon cycle study combines topics in areas such as Climate change and Global change.

Her Ecosystem research integrates issues from Soil organic matter, Soil water, Species richness and Physical geography. Norma Salinas has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Photosynthesis, Botany, Q10 and Mineralization. Her work in the fields of Amazon rainforest, such as Amazonian, overlaps with other areas such as Precipitation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (86.81%)
  • Ecosystem (62.64%)
  • Elevation (46.15%)

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

  • Elevation (46.15%)
  • Ecology (86.81%)
  • Ecosystem (62.64%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Elevation, Ecology, Ecosystem, Canopy and Photosynthesis. When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, her work on Taxonomy, Interspecific competition and Intraspecific competition is frequently linked to work in Homogeneous and Competitive exclusion, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Norma Salinas undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecosystem and Scaling through her works.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Remote sensing, Remote sensing and Plant traits in addition to Canopy. Her work carried out in the field of Photosynthesis brings together such families of science as Hypocotyl and Growing season. While the research belongs to areas of Adaptation, Norma Salinas spends her time largely on the problem of δ13C, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Agronomy.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Covariance of Sun and Shade Leaf Traits Along a Tropical Forest Elevation Gradient. (6 citations)
  • Covariance of Sun and Shade Leaf Traits Along a Tropical Forest Elevation Gradient. (6 citations)
  • Linking patterns and processes of tree community assembly across spatial scales in tropical montane forests (5 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Norma Salinas focuses on Canopy, Elevation, Ecology, Remote sensing and Pantropical. Norma Salinas combines subjects such as Photosynthesis, Chemical defense, δ13C and Agronomy with her study of Canopy. Her Elevation research spans across into subjects like Adaptation, Spatial ecology and Cluster analysis.

Her study in Ecology focuses on Montane ecology and Floristics. In the field of Remote sensing, her study on Remote sensing overlaps with subjects such as Art.
