Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Ecology, Forestry, Forest inventory, Picea abies and Carbon sequestration are her primary areas of study. Her study on Taiga, Soil carbon and Boreal is often connected to Metagenomics and Sequence as part of broader study in Ecology. Raisa Mäkipää combines subjects such as Biomass, Kyoto Protocol and Tree species with her study of Forestry.

Her work on Aboveground biomass as part of general Biomass research is frequently linked to Cover, bridging the gap between disciplines. She performs multidisciplinary studies into Picea abies and Scots pine in her work. Her research integrates issues of Forest management, Forest ecology and Agronomy in her study of Carbon sequestration.

Her most cited work include:

  • Biomass and stem volume equations for tree species in Europe. (423 citations)
  • Biomass expansion factors (BEFs) for Scots pine, Norway spruce and birch according to stand age for boreal forests (354 citations)
  • Which rotation length is favourable to carbon sequestration (250 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Ecology, Forestry, Taiga, Soil carbon and Carbon sequestration. Her study focuses on the intersection of Forestry and fields such as Biomass with connections in the field of Botany. Her Taiga research incorporates themes from Forest floor, Forest ecology, Ecosystem and Picea abies.

Her Picea abies research incorporates elements of Nitrogen fixation and Ecological succession. Her Soil carbon research includes elements of Litter and Greenhouse gas. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Climate change, Kyoto Protocol, Environmental protection, Forest management and Fossil fuel.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (24.46%)
  • Forestry (23.74%)
  • Taiga (23.02%)

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

  • Taiga (23.02%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (7.19%)
  • Peat (7.91%)

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

Raisa Mäkipää mainly focuses on Taiga, Atmospheric sciences, Peat, Forest floor and Global warming. Her studies in Peat integrate themes in fields like Continuous cover forestry, Forestry, Basal area and Evapotranspiration. Her study in Evapotranspiration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biomass, Agronomy and Boreal.

Boreal is the subject of her research, which falls under Ecology. Her research in Forest floor intersects with topics in Chemical process of decomposition, Coarse woody debris and Respiration rate. The concepts of her Global warming study are interwoven with issues in Abundance, Plant species and Species distribution.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Cropland soils in China have a large potential for carbon sequestration based on literature survey (20 citations)
  • Simulating solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence in a boreal forest stand reconstructed from terrestrial laser scanning measurements (9 citations)
  • Carbon flux from decomposing wood and its dependency on temperature, wood N2 fixation rate, moisture and fungal composition in a Norway spruce forest (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Raisa Mäkipää spends much of her time researching Atmospheric sciences, Agroforestry, Forest floor, Global warming and Ecosystem. Her Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Chlorophyll, Canopy, Leaf area index, Chlorophyll fluorescence and Tree canopy. Her Agroforestry research incorporates elements of Carbon sequestration, Soil carbon, Fertilizer and Crop residue.

She has included themes like Tillage and Greenhouse gas in her Soil carbon study. Her Forest floor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Coarse woody debris, Chemical process of decomposition, Respiration rate and Taiga.
