Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Soil water, Organic matter, Soil carbon, Soil organic matter and Environmental chemistry. His work on Soil chemistry as part of general Soil water research is frequently linked to Incubation, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study in Organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Decomposition and Soil test.

His Soil carbon study combines topics in areas such as Saturation and Hydrology. His Soil organic matter research includes themes of Biogeochemical cycle, Carbon cycle, Ecosystem and Alkali soil. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Inceptisol and Oxisol.

His most cited work include:

  • Soil carbon saturation: concept, evidence and evaluation (440 citations)
  • Soil carbon saturation: concept, evidence and evaluation (440 citations)
  • Sensitivity of organic matter decomposition to warming varies with its quality (284 citations)

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

Soil water, Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Soil carbon and Organic matter are his primary areas of study. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Saturation and Mineralogy. His studies in Soil organic matter integrate themes in fields like Decomposition, Carbon cycle, Soil chemistry and Agronomy.

His Total organic carbon study in the realm of Environmental chemistry interacts with subjects such as Biogeosciences. His Soil carbon study which covers Soil horizon that intersects with Soil gas. The study incorporates disciplines such as Inceptisol, Soil quality, Oxisol, Decomposer and Nutrient in addition to Organic matter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (56.08%)
  • Soil organic matter (49.32%)
  • Environmental chemistry (44.59%)

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

  • Soil water (56.08%)
  • Soil organic matter (49.32%)
  • Environmental chemistry (44.59%)

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

Alain F. Plante mainly investigates Soil water, Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Soil carbon and Biogeosciences. Alain F. Plante combines subjects such as Combustion and Temperate climate with his study of Soil water. His research integrates issues of Organic matter, Carbon cycle, Ecosystem and Decomposition in his study of Soil organic matter.

His Organic matter study which covers Soil classification that intersects with Soil quality. He has included themes like Agriculture and Sorption in his Environmental chemistry study. Soil carbon is a subfield of Soil science that he tackles.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Beyond clay: Towards an improved set of variables for predicting soil organic matter content (159 citations)
  • The energetic and chemical signatures of persistent soil organic matter (54 citations)
  • Adsorption and molecular fractionation of dissolved organic matter on iron-bearing mineral matrices of varying crystallinity (40 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Alain F. Plante mostly deals with Soil organic matter, Soil water, Soil carbon, Organic matter and Ecosystem. His Soil organic matter research includes elements of Environmental chemistry, Biogeochemical cycle and Soil test. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sorption and Dissolution.

Alain F. Plante carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Soil water and Context. To a larger extent, Alain F. Plante studies Soil science with the aim of understanding Soil carbon. His Organic matter research includes themes of Ecotone, Gymnosperm, Botany, Charcoal and Pyrolysis.
