Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

Charlie M. Shackleton focuses on Livelihood, Agroforestry, Poverty, Socioeconomics and Ecology. His Livelihood research includes themes of Economic growth, Natural resource, Agricultural economics, Woodland and Subsistence agriculture. His Economic growth study incorporates themes from Livestock, Development economics, Land use and Commercialization.

His work deals with themes such as Arable land, Woody plant, Domestication, Arid and Grazing, which intersect with Agroforestry. His Poverty study which covers Sustainability that intersects with Natural resource economics, Multiple use, Forest product and Forest farming. His Socioeconomics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Urbanization, Per capita and Environmental protection.

His most cited work include:

  • The importance of non-timber forest products in rural livelihood security and as safety nets: a review of evidence from South Africa (470 citations)
  • The importance of dry woodlands and forests in rural livelihoods and poverty alleviation in South Africa (347 citations)
  • The Role of Land-Based Strategies in Rural Livelihoods: The Contribution of Arable Production, Animal Husbandry and Natural Resource Harvesting in Communal Areas in South Africa (222 citations)

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

Livelihood, Agroforestry, Ecology, Socioeconomics and Poverty are his primary areas of study. Charlie M. Shackleton combines subjects such as Economic growth, Natural resource, Resource and Agricultural economics with his study of Livelihood. The Natural resource study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics and Environmental resource management.

His study looks at the intersection of Agroforestry and topics like Biodiversity with Introduced species and Ecosystem services. His Socioeconomics course of study focuses on Developing country and Urban forestry. With his scientific publications, his incorporates both Poverty and Consumption.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Livelihood (29.69%)
  • Agroforestry (28.33%)
  • Ecology (23.21%)

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

  • Livelihood (29.69%)
  • Socioeconomics (20.48%)
  • Ecosystem services (10.92%)

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

His primary areas of study are Livelihood, Socioeconomics, Ecosystem services, Agroforestry and Poverty. Charlie M. Shackleton has included themes like Invasive species, Agricultural economics and Arable land in his Livelihood study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Urbanization, Urban ecosystem and Firewood.

His Ecosystem services study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sustainable development, Natural resource economics, Valuation and Environmental planning. His Agroforestry research includes elements of Agricultural land, Woody plant, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Non-timber forest product. The study incorporates disciplines such as Developing country, Informal sector, Development economics and Food security in addition to Poverty.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Explaining people's perceptions of invasive alien species: A conceptual framework. (77 citations)
  • The role of invasive alien species in shaping local livelihoods and human well-being: A review. (63 citations)
  • Rethinking urban green infrastructure and ecosystem services from the perspective of sub-Saharan African cities (38 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

Ecosystem services, Livelihood, Environmental planning, Socioeconomics and Food security are his primary areas of study. His Ecosystem services research incorporates themes from Green infrastructure, Biodiversity, Cultural system and Social system. His Livelihood research incorporates elements of Introduced species, Agroforestry and Invasive species.

His Environmental planning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stakeholder, Land use and Urban ecology. He interconnects Travel cost, Focus group and Value in the investigation of issues within Socioeconomics. His work on Dietary diversity and Food systems as part of general Food security study is frequently linked to Food group, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
