2023 - Research.com Ecology and Evolution in United States Leader Award
2016 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Soil organic matter and Nitrogen cycle. As part of his studies on Ecology, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Agronomy. Donald R. Zak focuses mostly in the field of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to topics relating to Soil water and, in certain cases, Organic matter, Nutrient, Respiration and Growing season.
Donald R. Zak works mostly in the field of Botany, limiting it down to topics relating to Microbial population biology and, in certain cases, Heterotroph. The concepts of his Soil organic matter study are interwoven with issues in Humus, Animal science and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. His study on Nitrogen cycle also encompasses disciplines like
Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Soil organic matter and Soil water are his primary areas of study. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Nitrogen cycle and Microbial population biology. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbon dioxide, Agronomy and Animal science.
His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Relative species abundance and Biogeochemical cycle. Donald R. Zak integrates Soil organic matter with Deposition in his study. His Soil water research incorporates elements of Environmental chemistry, Aceraceae and Nutrient.
Donald R. Zak focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil organic matter, Terrestrial ecosystem and Deposition. Ecology and Microbial population biology are frequently intertwined in his study. Donald R. Zak has included themes like Secondary succession, Relative species abundance, Botany, Biomass and Litter in his Ecosystem study.
Donald R. Zak combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry, Soil carbon, Symbiosis and Lineage with his study of Soil organic matter. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Peroxidase and Organic matter. His study in Terrestrial ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil biology, Nutrient cycle, Nutrient and Community.
Donald R. Zak mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Plant litter, Soil organic matter and Botany. His Ecology research focuses on Biogeochemical cycle, Chronosequence, Species richness, Forest floor and Terrestrial ecosystem. His study looks at the intersection of Terrestrial ecosystem and topics like Microbial population biology with Nutrient.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Carbon sequestration, Canopy and Productivity, Agronomy in addition to Ecosystem. His Soil organic matter study incorporates themes from Symbiosis, Host, Lineage and Enzyme. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Versatile peroxidase, Manganese peroxidase, Biochemistry and Ectomycorrhiza.
