Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Eldor A. Paul mostly deals with Soil organic matter, Soil water, Agronomy, Soil carbon and Environmental chemistry. His study in Soil organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil biology, Humus and Ecosystem. The various areas that he examines in his Soil water study include Organic matter, Mineralogy and Incubation.

His Agronomy research integrates issues from Soil biodiversity, Nutrient and Crop rotation. The concepts of his Soil carbon study are interwoven with issues in Soil type, Total organic carbon, Conventional tillage, Carbon sequestration and Soil chemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Land management, Land use, Fractionation, Carbon and Nitrate as well as Environmental chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Soil microbiology and biochemistry. (2889 citations)
  • Stabilization mechanisms of soil organic matter: Implications for C-saturation of soils (2503 citations)
  • Greenhouse gases in intensive agriculture: contributions of individual gases to the radiative forcing of the atmosphere. (1111 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Soil water, Soil organic matter, Agronomy, Environmental chemistry and Soil carbon. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecosystem and Incubation. His Soil organic matter research also works with subjects such as

  • Organic matter that intertwine with fields like Biomass,
  • Soil biology which connect with Soil ecology.

His Agronomy research incorporates elements of Nitrogen fixation, Mineralization, Nitrogen, Crop rotation and Nutrient. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fractionation, Carbon, Decomposer and Litter. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil classification, Soil biodiversity and Carbon cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (43.78%)
  • Soil organic matter (33.18%)
  • Agronomy (31.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2021)?

  • Soil water (43.78%)
  • Soil organic matter (33.18%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.27%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Soil water, Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Ecology and Organic matter. His Soil water research includes themes of Ecosystem and Vegetation. His Soil organic matter study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil type, Soil fertility, Agronomy, Soil respiration and Fractionation.

Eldor A. Paul interconnects Biomass, Enzyme assay and Soil quality in the investigation of issues within Agronomy. His research integrates issues of Decomposition, Decomposer, Litter, Carbon and Pyrolysis in his study of Environmental chemistry. The various areas that Eldor A. Paul examines in his Organic matter study include Total organic carbon, Thermal decomposition, Soil health and Mineralization.

Between 2007 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Microbial Efficiency-Matrix Stabilization (MEMS) framework integrates plant litter decomposition with soil organic matter stabilization: do labile plant inputs form stable soil organic matter? (1035 citations)
  • Soil microbiology, ecology, and biochemistry (663 citations)
  • Sensitivity of organic matter decomposition to warming varies with its quality (284 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Soil organic matter, Soil water, Ecology, Environmental chemistry and Decomposition are his primary areas of study. In Soil organic matter, Eldor A. Paul works on issues like Organic matter, which are connected to Thermal decomposition. His Soil classification study in the realm of Soil water interacts with subjects such as Silt.

Environmental chemistry is often connected to Soil carbon in his work. His study looks at the relationship between Decomposition and topics such as Litter, which overlap with Plant litter, Lability, Carbon and Litter decomposition. His Soil health study incorporates themes from Biomass and Agronomy.
