Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Ariel E. Lugo mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Agroforestry, Tropics and Forestry. Plant litter, Environmental change, Biodiversity, Forest ecology and Land use are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hydrology, Experimental forest and Agricultural development.

In the field of Agroforestry, his study on Secondary forest and Reforestation overlaps with subjects such as Alien. His Tropics research incorporates themes from Vegetation, Soil carbon, Deforestation and Ecological succession. His work on Dendrometry is typically connected to Energy source as part of general Forestry study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change and Forest Disturbances (1639 citations)
  • Novel ecosystems: theoretical and management aspects of the new ecological world order (1380 citations)
  • Ecology of Tropical Dry Forest (1275 citations)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Forestry, Tropics and Biomass are his primary areas of study. His studies in Introduced species, Species richness, Biodiversity, Disturbance and Vegetation are all subfields of Ecology research. In his study, Ecosystem services is strongly linked to Environmental resource management, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecosystem.

His Tropics research focuses on Soil carbon and how it relates to Soil organic matter. Biomass is the subject of his research, which falls under Agronomy. The Agronomy study which covers Nutrient that intersects with Soil water.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (55.38%)
  • Ecosystem (23.11%)
  • Forestry (17.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Ecology (55.38%)
  • Ecosystem (23.11%)
  • Environmental resource management (9.56%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Introduced species and Anthropocene. Ariel E. Lugo regularly ties together related areas like Disturbance in his Ecology studies. The Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Ecological systems theory and Ecosystem services.

The concepts of his Introduced species study are interwoven with issues in Habitat, Species richness, Biota, Species diversity and Dominance. His study focuses on the intersection of Disturbance and fields such as Ecological succession with connections in the field of Basal area, Subtropics and Tropics. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Livelihood and Mangrove.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Averting biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas (662 citations)
  • Don't judge species on their origins (628 citations)
  • Managing the whole landscape: historical, hybrid, and novel ecosystems (270 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Disturbance and Introduced species. Ariel E. Lugo integrates Ecology with Novelty in his research. His research investigates the connection between Ecosystem and topics such as Anthropocene that intersect with problems in Novel ecosystem and Forestry.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Ecological systems theory and Ecosystem services in addition to Environmental resource management. His Disturbance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bedrock, Riparian zone and Groundwater. Ariel E. Lugo has included themes like Agroforestry, Ecological succession, Invasive species, Species richness and Plant community in his Introduced species study.
