Her primary areas of study are Ecology, Herbivore, Rainforest, Biodiversity and Habitat. Ecology is represented through her Host, Resource, Insect, Community and Temperate forest research. Phyllis D. Coley interconnects Inducible plant defenses against herbivory, EICA hypothesis and Plant tolerance to herbivory in the investigation of issues within Resource.
While working in this field, Phyllis D. Coley studies both Herbivore and Plant defense against herbivory. Her study on Rainforest also encompasses disciplines like
Phyllis D. Coley spends much of her time researching Ecology, Herbivore, Botany, Inga and Biodiversity. Her Ecology study is mostly concerned with Habitat, Host, Rainforest, Ecosystem and Species richness. The various areas that she examines in her Rainforest study include Greening and Interspecific competition.
In her articles, Phyllis D. Coley combines various disciplines, including Herbivore and Plant defense against herbivory. Her study looks at the intersection of Inga and topics like Competition with Density dependence. Her Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sustainability and Ecosystem services.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Herbivore, Inga, Botany and Host. Her Ecology and Biodiversity and Habitat investigations all form part of her Ecology research activities. In her papers, Phyllis D. Coley integrates diverse fields, such as Herbivore and Plant defense against herbivory.
Her Inga research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Calyx, Allopatric speciation, Genus and Amazon rainforest. While the research belongs to areas of Botany, Phyllis D. Coley spends her time largely on the problem of Metabolome, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Understory, Intraspecific competition and Chemical defense. In her research, Evolutionary ecology and Community structure is intimately related to Coevolution, which falls under the overarching field of Host.
Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Herbivore, Biodiversity, Inga and Coevolution. Her research in the fields of Biogeography, Habitat and Insect overlaps with other disciplines such as High rate and Plant defense against herbivory. Her Biogeography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Allopatric speciation, Metacommunity, Biological dispersal and Amazon rainforest.
Her work deals with themes such as Biotic component, Woody plant, Species diversity, Plant community and Conservation biology, which intersect with Habitat. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Species richness, Ecosystem and Tropics. Her work on Fabaceae as part of general Botany study is frequently linked to High potential, bridging the gap between disciplines.
