Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Sandra Lavorel mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Ecosystem services and Climate change. Her Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Biological dispersal. Her work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Plant ecology, Environmental change, Community structure and Land use.

Her research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Trophic level, Sustainable management, Abiotic component and Land-use planning. Her Ecosystem services research incorporates elements of Conceptual framework, Environmental resource management and Sustainability. Her Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Natural resource economics and Extinction.

Her most cited work include:

  • EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY ON ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING: A CONSENSUS OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE (5255 citations)
  • Consequences of changing biodiversity (3081 citations)
  • A handbook of protocols for standardised and easy measurement of plant functional traits worldwide (2451 citations)

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

Sandra Lavorel focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management and Biodiversity. Her Ecology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Biological dispersal. The concepts of her Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Trophic level, Environmental change and Abiotic component.

The Ecosystem services study combines topics in areas such as Ecosystem management, Land use, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Environmental planning. Her work carried out in the field of Environmental resource management brings together such families of science as Conceptual framework, Agriculture, Climate change, Recreation and Sustainability. Her biological study deals with issues like Agronomy, which deal with fields such as Nutrient.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.50%)
  • Ecosystem (34.74%)
  • Ecosystem services (32.33%)

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

  • Ecosystem services (32.33%)
  • Environmental resource management (29.31%)
  • Ecology (56.50%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Ecosystem and Biodiversity. The Ecosystem services study combines topics in areas such as Conceptual framework, Sustainability, Land use and Environmental planning. The concepts of her Environmental resource management study are interwoven with issues in Ecosystem management, Agriculture, Climate change, Adaptive capacity and Recreation.

Her work in Ecology tackles topics such as Specific leaf area which are related to areas like Vegetation. In Ecosystem, Sandra Lavorel works on issues like Abiotic component, which are connected to Soil water. Her work on Conservation planning and Global biodiversity as part of general Biodiversity research is frequently linked to Priority areas, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The global spectrum of plant form and function (972 citations)
  • Assessing nature's contributions to people (706 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Sandra Lavorel spends much of her time researching Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Ecosystem and Biodiversity. Her studies in Ecosystem services integrate themes in fields like Conceptual framework, Ecology, Sustainability and Environmental planning. Sandra Lavorel combines subjects such as Climate change, Agency and Process management with her study of Environmental resource management.

Her studies examine the connections between Ecology and genetics, as well as such issues in Agronomy, with regards to Microbial population biology. Her research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Floodplain, Environmental change and Abiotic component. Sandra Lavorel usually deals with Ecosystem management and limits it to topics linked to Ecosystem diversity and Terrestrial ecosystem.
