Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Carlos A. Quesada mainly investigates Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Biomass, Tropics and Rainforest. His research related to Tropical climate, Forest dynamics and Forest ecology might be considered part of Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Soil classification, Soil water and Woody plant, which intersect with Amazon rainforest.

His research integrates issues of Basal area and Liana in his study of Biomass. Carlos A. Quesada has included themes like Carbon cycle and Carbon sink in his Rainforest study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Carbon cycle, Biomass, Global change and Climate change is strongly linked to Agronomy.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Long-term decline of the Amazon carbon sink (475 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Soil water, Biomass and Productivity. His research in Ecosystem, Rainforest, Vegetation, Amazonian and Edaphic are components of Ecology. He combines subjects such as Climate change, Carbon sink, Tropics, Carbon cycle and Nutrient with his study of Amazon rainforest.

His study looks at the relationship between Soil water and fields such as Agronomy, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research in Biomass intersects with topics in Tropical climate, Forest ecology, Transect and Liana. While the research belongs to areas of Productivity, Carlos A. Quesada spends his time largely on the problem of Primary production, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Forestry, Spatial variability and Terra preta.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.34%)
  • Amazon rainforest (51.05%)
  • Soil water (30.07%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Amazon rainforest (51.05%)
  • Ecology (64.34%)
  • Soil water (30.07%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Soil water, Nutrient and Ecosystem. His studies deal with areas such as Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon sink, Precipitation and Plant physiology as well as Amazon rainforest. His work in Biomass, Tropical rainforest, Soil fertility, Species richness and Amazonian are all subfields of Ecology research.

His Biomass study incorporates themes from Tropical climate and Atmospheric sciences. His Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Productivity and Organic matter. He works mostly in the field of Ecosystem, limiting it down to concerns involving Biodiversity and, occasionally, Dry season, Tropics, Climate change and Taxon.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Compositional response of Amazon forests to climate change (111 citations)
  • Amazon forest response to CO2 fertilization dependent on plant phosphorus acquisition (52 citations)
  • Individual-based modeling of Amazon forests suggests that climate controls productivity while traits control demography (10 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Carlos A. Quesada mostly deals with Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Ecosystem, Biomass and Soil water. His study in Amazon rainforest is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Productivity, Climate change and Taxon. His study in Amazonian, Edaphic and Dry season is done as part of Ecology.

His research investigates the link between Ecosystem and topics such as Biodiversity that cross with problems in Forest inventory, Species richness, Vegetation, Rainforest and Tropics. His study explores the link between Biomass and topics such as Forest ecology that cross with problems in Tropical ecology, Tropical climate, Climate model and Atmospheric sciences. His Soil water research integrates issues from Physical geography and Kriging.
