Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Paul Kardol mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil biology, Plant community and Soil water. The various areas that Paul Kardol examines in his Ecosystem study include Restoration ecology, Soil fertility, Ecology, Climate change and Community structure. His Soil biology research integrates issues from Shrubland and Mediterranean climate.

His research investigates the connection between Plant community and topics such as Dominance that intersect with issues in Species evenness, Terrestrial ecosystem and Species diversity. In his study, Species richness is inextricably linked to Abundance, which falls within the broad field of Soil water. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil biodiversity, Soil ecology, Soil health, Soil resilience and Soil retrogression and degradation in addition to Soil carbon.

His most cited work include:

  • Plant–soil feedbacks: the past, the present and future challenges (760 citations)
  • Temporal variation in plant–soil feedback controls succession (431 citations)
  • Microbe-mediated plant-soil feedback causes historical contingency effects in plant community assembly (345 citations)

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

Paul Kardol spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Plant community, Agronomy and Soil biology. Ecological succession, Biomass, Soil water, Abiotic component and Secondary succession are among the areas of Ecology where he concentrates his study. In his research, Species richness is intimately related to Abundance, which falls under the overarching field of Soil water.

His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biodiversity, Soil fertility, Old field, Climate change and Community structure. His study explores the link between Plant community and topics such as Competition that cross with problems in Plant ecology. His study looks at the intersection of Soil biology and topics like Soil retrogression and degradation with Soil resilience.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.28%)
  • Ecosystem (47.22%)
  • Plant community (30.56%)

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

  • Ecology (65.28%)
  • Ecosystem (47.22%)
  • Biodiversity (9.72%)

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

Paul Kardol mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Soil water and Agronomy. In his articles, Paul Kardol combines various disciplines, including Ecology and Acidobacteria. His work deals with themes such as Productivity, Plant community and Soil fertility, which intersect with Ecosystem.

Paul Kardol combines subjects such as Soil biodiversity, Intensive farming and Organic farming with his study of Biodiversity. He has researched Soil water in several fields, including Biomass, Physical geography, Arid and Steppe. Paul Kardol interconnects Soil biology, Soil food web and Ecological succession in the investigation of issues within Abiotic component.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil nematode abundance and functional group composition at a global scale (160 citations)
  • A meta-analysis of 1,119 manipulative experiments on terrestrial carbon-cycling responses to global change (74 citations)
  • The ratio of Gram-positive to Gram-negative bacterial PLFA markers as an indicator of carbon availability in organic soils (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecosystem, Ecology, Soil water, Abiotic component and Biodiversity. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Soil organic matter, Organic matter, Productivity and Biosphere. Particularly relevant to Soil fertility is his body of work in Ecology.

His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Boreal, Climate change, Sampling, Subarctic climate and Taiga. His Abiotic component research incorporates elements of Soil biology, Soil food web, Ecological succession and Community structure. His Soil biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rhizosphere, Plant traits, Environmental resource management and Plant litter.
