Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Competition, Climate change, Forest dynamics and Mediterranean climate. Paloma Ruiz-Benito performs multidisciplinary studies into Ecology and Specific leaf area in her work. Her Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biodiversity and Growing season.

Her work on Mediterranean climate is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Global change. Her Forest inventory research integrates issues from Effects of global warming and Dendrology. Her research in Earth system science intersects with topics in Plant traits, Carbon storage and Functional diversity.

Her most cited work include:

  • Plant functional traits have globally consistent effects on competition (372 citations)
  • Plant functional traits have globally consistent effects on competition (372 citations)
  • Disentangling the relative importance of climate, size and competition on tree growth in Iberian forests: Implications for forest management under global change (178 citations)

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

Paloma Ruiz-Benito spends much of her time researching Ecology, Climate change, Mediterranean climate, Biodiversity and Ecosystem. Her research related to Competition, Forest inventory, Temperate climate, Forest management and Forest dynamics might be considered part of Ecology. Her Competition research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tree, Effects of global warming and Tree species.

She interconnects Dendrology and Basal area in the investigation of issues within Climate change. Her research integrates issues of Secondary succession, Ecological succession and Taiga in her study of Mediterranean climate. The study incorporates disciplines such as Species richness, Land use and Ecosystem services in addition to Biodiversity.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (126.04%)
  • Climate change (60.42%)
  • Mediterranean climate (45.83%)

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

  • Ecology (126.04%)
  • Forest inventory (39.58%)
  • Basal area (20.83%)

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

Paloma Ruiz-Benito mostly deals with Ecology, Forest inventory, Basal area, Tree species and Biodiversity. Her study in Species distribution, Competition, Abiotic component, Intraspecific competition and Taxon falls under the purview of Ecology. The various areas that she examines in her Competition study include Forest management, Effects of global warming and Forest structure.

Her Forest inventory research incorporates elements of Predictive modelling, Approximate Bayesian computation and Algorithm. Her study connects Climate change and Basal area. Her study looks at the intersection of Biodiversity and topics like Range with Temperate climate.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Above‐ and below‐ground biodiversity jointly regulate temperate forest multifunctionality along a local‐scale environmental gradient (14 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 her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Paloma Ruiz-Benito focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Climate change, Forest inventory and Environmental gradient. Her study in Ecology focuses on Shrub, Evergreen, Secondary succession, Deciduous and Forest recovery. Her Biodiversity research includes themes of Temperate climate, Biotic component, Abiotic component, Temperate rainforest and Species richness.

Her Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental resource management, Leaf area index, Missing data and Land use. The various areas that she examines in her Forest inventory study include Effects of global warming, Forest structure and Competition. Her research integrates issues of Natural forest, Temperate forest and Local scale in her study of Environmental gradient.
