Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Renzo Motta mostly deals with Ecology, Basal area, Picea abies, Forestry and Beech. Abies alba, Pinus cembra, Global change, Ungulate and Woody plant are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. The study incorporates disciplines such as Vegetation dynamics, Forest dynamics, Anthropogenic factor and Land use in addition to Basal area.

His Picea abies study incorporates themes from Lidar, Forest inventory and Linear regression. His studies in Forestry integrate themes in fields like Global warming, Drought stress and Radial growth. His work focuses on many connections between Beech and other disciplines, such as Productivity, that overlap with his field of interest in Monoculture.

His most cited work include:

  • Conifers in cold environments synchronize maximum growth rate of tree-ring formation with day length. (291 citations)
  • Growth trends and dynamics in sub‐alpine forest stands in the Varaita Valley (Piedmont, Italy) and their relationships with human activities and global change (145 citations)
  • Inter-annual and decadal changes in teleconnections drive continental-scale synchronization of tree reproduction (132 citations)

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

Renzo Motta spends much of his time researching Ecology, Forestry, Forest management, Agroforestry and Old-growth forest. His study connects Scots pine and Ecology. His Forestry study also includes

  • Competition, which have a strong connection to Crown,
  • Pinus cembra together with Subalpine forest.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Forest management, Stand development is strongly linked to Silviculture. His work deals with themes such as Canopy and Tree canopy, which intersect with Old-growth forest. The various areas that Renzo Motta examines in his Coarse woody debris study include Snag and Disturbance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (43.33%)
  • Forestry (30.00%)
  • Forest management (15.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (43.33%)
  • Forestry (30.00%)
  • Beech (13.33%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Forestry, Beech, Old-growth forest and Climate change. His work in Ecology covers topics such as Agroforestry which are related to areas like Land use, land-use change and forestry. His work in Forestry tackles topics such as Pinus which are related to areas like Regeneration.

His work on Fagus sylvatica as part of general Beech study is frequently connected to Mast, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Environmental education and Disturbance. His work carried out in the field of Forest ecology brings together such families of science as Dendrochronology, Tree species, Forest dynamics and Path analysis.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Inter-annual and decadal changes in teleconnections drive continental-scale synchronization of tree reproduction (132 citations)
  • Direct Measurement of Tree Height Provides Different Results on the Assessment of LiDAR Accuracy (107 citations)
  • Where are Europe's last primary forests? (96 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Scots pine and Agroforestry. Ecology is closely attributed to Population ecology in his work. His study on Fagus sylvatica also encompasses disciplines like

  • Species diversity which is related to area like Silviculture, Dominance and Abies alba,
  • Picea abies and related Remote sensing and Forest inventory.

He has included themes like Productivity and Forestry, Basal area in his Scots pine study. His work on Forest management as part of general Forestry research is frequently linked to Empirical data, bridging the gap between disciplines. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Agroforestry, concentrating on Land use, land-use change and forestry and intersecting with Sustainable forest management, Agricultural land and Biodiversity.
