Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Sustainability

Carl Folke spends much of his time researching Environmental resource management, Sustainability, Ecosystem management, Ecology and Ecosystem services. His studies in Environmental resource management integrate themes in fields like Ecological resilience, Psychological resilience, Adaptive capacity and Goods and services. His research in Sustainability intersects with topics in Environmental studies, Environmental planning, Earth system science and Natural capital.

His research integrates issues of Resource management, Total human ecosystem, Ecosystem health, Sustainable development and Ecosystem diversity in his study of Ecosystem management. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ecology, Humanity is strongly linked to Space. His Ecosystem services research is included under the broader classification of Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Catastrophic shifts in ecosystems. (4775 citations)

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

Carl Folke focuses on Environmental resource management, Sustainability, Ecosystem services, Ecology and Ecosystem. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecological systems theory, Ecosystem management, Stewardship, Corporate governance and Psychological resilience. His Sustainability study combines topics in areas such as Environmental planning, Sustainable development, Natural resource economics, Anthropocene and Earth system science.

His Earth system science research includes themes of Planetary boundaries and Biosphere. His research in Ecosystem services intersects with topics in Biodiversity and Adaptive capacity. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fishery and Aquaculture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (56.09%)
  • Sustainability (36.55%)
  • Ecosystem services (31.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Anthropocene (11.76%)
  • Sustainability (36.55%)
  • Biosphere (9.45%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Anthropocene, Sustainability, Biosphere, Ecology and Corporate governance. His Anthropocene study also includes

  • Complex adaptive system which is related to area like Ecological systems theory,
  • Economic geography which is related to area like Social dynamics. His work carried out in the field of Sustainability brings together such families of science as Quality, Stewardship, Engineering ethics and Set.

The Biosphere study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics, Planetary boundaries, Psychological resilience and Earth system science. His Psychological resilience research integrates issues from Nationalism, Collective identity, Status quo and Ecosystem services. His research integrates issues of Climate change, Carbon sink and Holocene in his study of Earth system science.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trajectories of the Earth System in the Anthropocene (764 citations)
  • Trajectories of the Earth System in the Anthropocene (764 citations)
  • Nature and mental health: An ecosystem service perspective. (185 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Sustainability

His scientific interests lie mostly in Sustainability, Anthropocene, Complex adaptive system, Biosphere and Ecological systems theory. Sustainability research and Planetary boundaries are the primary areas of interest in his Sustainability study. His Biosphere study incorporates themes from Climate change, Carbon sink, Natural resource economics, Sea level and Earth system science.

His Ecological systems theory study combines topics in areas such as Ecology, Management science and Sustainable development. In his research, Ecosystem services is intimately related to Empirical evidence, which falls under the overarching field of Urbanization. His Ecosystem services study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychological resilience and Value.
