Raija Laiho mainly focuses on Peat, Ecology, Ecosystem, Litter and Hydrology. Her Peat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil water, Ecological succession, Water level and Plant litter. Her study explores the link between Soil water and topics such as Forest ecology that cross with problems in Nitrogen cycle.
Her Decomposer, Boreal and Taiga study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecology, is frequently linked to Drawdown and Tree stand, bridging the gap between disciplines. She focuses mostly in the field of Litter, narrowing it down to matters related to Environmental chemistry and, in some cases, Soil chemistry and Organic matter. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mire and Sphagnum in addition to Hydrology.
Her primary areas of study are Peat, Ecology, Boreal, Forestry and Agronomy. Her work deals with themes such as Agroforestry, Soil water, Nutrient and Ecosystem, which intersect with Peat. Growing season is closely connected to Hydrology in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Boreal.
Her Forestry research incorporates themes from Scots pine and Drainage. Her research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Stump harvesting, Soil respiration and Botany. Her research investigates the connection between Sphagnum and topics such as Plant litter that intersect with issues in Chronosequence and Ecological succession.
Raija Laiho mostly deals with Peat, Boreal, Agronomy, Biomass and Biomass. Raija Laiho works on Peat which deals in particular with Sphagnum. Her Boreal research is classified as research in Ecology.
The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Exudate, Mineralization, Soil organic matter, Bulk soil and Cycling. Her Biomass research includes themes of Plant community and Plant functional type. Her research integrates issues of Moss, Plant roots, Renewable energy and Nitrogen in her study of Biomass.
Her main research concerns Peat, Boreal, Agroforestry, Ecosystem respiration and Bog. Her Peat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomass, Agronomy, Ecosystem services, Soil respiration and Plant community. Her Plant community research integrates issues from Ecosystem, Forb and Phenology.
Boreal is a subfield of Ecology that she studies. Raija Laiho has researched Agroforestry in several fields, including Ditch, Species diversity and Interception. Her work carried out in the field of Ecosystem respiration brings together such families of science as Soil carbon, Ombrotrophic, Minerotrophic, Productivity and Sphagnum.
