Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences and Terrestrial ecosystem. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Carbon cycle, Global change, Canopy, Primary production and Nutrient. His Ecosystem research includes elements of Nitrogen fixation, Grassland, Agronomy and Precipitation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Forest restoration and Environmental resource management in addition to Climate change. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates themes from Greenhouse effect, Meteorology, Tropics and Greenhouse gas. His Terrestrial ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Climatology, Earth science, Forest ecology, Nitrogen cycle and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Summary for policymakers (8355 citations)
  • Primary Production of the Biosphere: Integrating Terrestrial and Oceanic Components (3389 citations)
  • Managing the risks of extreme events and disasters to advance climate change adaptation. Special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (3043 citations)

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

Christopher B. Field mainly focuses on Ecology, Climate change, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Botany. His study in Terrestrial ecosystem, Global change, Primary production, Carbon cycle and Canopy are all subfields of Ecology. As part of the same scientific family, Christopher B. Field usually focuses on Carbon cycle, concentrating on Carbon sink and intersecting with Sink.

His studies examine the connections between Climate change and genetics, as well as such issues in Environmental resource management, with regards to Political economy of climate change and Environmental planning. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Carbon dioxide and Atmospheric sciences. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (28.08%)
  • Climate change (18.49%)
  • Ecosystem (16.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Climate change (18.49%)
  • Environmental resource management (8.68%)
  • Ecology (28.08%)

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

Christopher B. Field mostly deals with Climate change, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Environmental planning and Natural resource economics. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climatology and Vulnerability. The various areas that Christopher B. Field examines in his Environmental resource management study include Resilience, Political economy of climate change and Key.

His Ecology and Plant community, Canopy, Ecosystem, Biodiversity and Species diversity investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. His studies in Canopy integrate themes in fields like Photosynthetic capacity, Primary production and Atmospheric sciences. His study focuses on the intersection of Ecosystem and fields such as Global change with connections in the field of Soil respiration, Grassland, Soil carbon and Carbon dioxide.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate Change 2014: Impacts,Adaptation, and Vulnerability. Part A: Global and Sectoral Aspects. Contribution of Working Group II to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (1356 citations)
  • Climate change 2014: impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability - Part B: regional aspects - Contribution of Working Group II to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (531 citations)
  • Net-zero emissions energy systems (321 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Climate change, Environmental resource management, Solar energy, Natural resource economics and Renewable energy. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hydraulic conductivity, Armed conflict, Climatology and Ecosystem. The Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Natural, Political economy of climate change, Carbon sink and Environmental planning.

His Global warming research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Primary production and Global change. His research in Primary production focuses on subjects like Photosynthesis, which are connected to Canopy. Christopher B. Field has researched Ecology in several fields, including Water-use efficiency and Water content.
