Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Sustainability

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Land use, Environmental resource management, Land cover, Deforestation and Land use, land-use change and forestry. The concepts of his Land use study are interwoven with issues in Agroforestry, Scale, Agriculture, Agricultural productivity and Population growth. His Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Desertification, Globalization, United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, Public policy and Sustainability.

Ecology covers Eric F. Lambin research in Land cover. His Deforestation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Remote sensing and Geographic information system. His Land use, land-use change and forestry research incorporates themes from Natural resource economics, Development economics and Land management.

His most cited work include:

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Planetary boundaries: Exploring the safe operating space for humanity (2805 citations)
  • The causes of land-use and land-cover change: moving beyond the myths (2453 citations)

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

Eric F. Lambin focuses on Land use, Environmental resource management, Agroforestry, Deforestation and Land cover. His research integrates issues of Agriculture, Natural resource economics and Environmental protection in his study of Land use. His studies deal with areas such as Sustainability and Land degradation as well as Environmental resource management.

His study looks at the relationship between Agroforestry and topics such as Forest transition, which overlap with Secondary forest. His Deforestation research includes elements of Ecosystem services, Enforcement, Land tenure and Amazon rainforest. He has researched Land cover in several fields, including Plant cover, Vegetation, Physical geography, Scale and Remote sensing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Land use (45.94%)
  • Environmental resource management (32.23%)
  • Agroforestry (33.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Deforestation (32.99%)
  • Agroforestry (33.76%)
  • Land use (45.94%)

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

Eric F. Lambin spends much of his time researching Deforestation, Agroforestry, Land use, Agriculture and Sustainability. His study on Deforestation also encompasses disciplines like

  • Natural resource economics which intersects with area such as Environmental resource management and Climate change,
  • Enforcement which intersects with area such as Public economics. The various areas that Eric F. Lambin examines in his Agroforestry study include Biodiversity, Tropics and Land use, land-use change and forestry.

Eric F. Lambin is interested in Land cover, which is a field of Land use. His research integrates issues of Globalization and Commodity in his study of Agriculture. His work deals with themes such as Supply chain, Private sector, Incentive and Sustainable development, which intersect with Sustainability.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cash for carbon: A randomized trial of payments for ecosystem services to reduce deforestation (138 citations)
  • Cash for carbon: A randomized trial of payments for ecosystem services to reduce deforestation (138 citations)
  • The role of supply-chain initiatives in reducing deforestation (135 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Sustainability

His primary scientific interests are in Agriculture, Deforestation, Sustainability, Land use and Natural resource economics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ecosystem services, Commodity, Agricultural economics and Amazon rainforest in addition to Deforestation. His Sustainability research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Supply chain and Sustainable development.

His Land use study frequently links to related topics such as Agroforestry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Forest transition, Land cover, Offshoring and Environmental protection. His Natural resource economics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Climate change, Bioenergy and Environmental resource management.
