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.
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.
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.
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.
