What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

F. Stuart Chapin mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Tundra, Climate change and Nutrient. Ecology is closely attributed to Botany in his work. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biodiversity and Vegetation.

His Tundra study incorporates themes from Soil water and Eriophorum. His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Stakeholder, Biosphere and Best practice. His Nutrient research includes elements of Lawn, Catkin and Betulaceae.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Consequences of Land Use (7368 citations)
  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Plant Physiological Ecology (3255 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Tundra and Climate change. His study in Taiga, Nutrient, Vegetation, Biomass and Disturbance is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. In his study, Botany and Deciduous is inextricably linked to Agronomy, which falls within the broad field of Nutrient.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Biodiversity and Biogeochemical cycle in addition to Ecosystem. His Environmental resource management research incorporates themes from Ecosystem management, Stewardship, Environmental planning, Ecosystem services and Sustainability. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Natural resource economics and Biome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (42.74%)
  • Ecosystem (25.07%)
  • Environmental resource management (18.47%)

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

  • Ecology (42.74%)
  • Climate change (14.78%)
  • Environmental resource management (18.47%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Climate change, Environmental resource management, Tundra and Ecosystem. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Taiga, Shrub, Ecology, Earth system science and Disturbance. F. Stuart Chapin interconnects Natural resource economics, Atmospheric sciences and Subsistence agriculture in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

He has researched Environmental resource management in several fields, including Biodiversity, Stewardship, Arctic and Ecosystem services. His research in Tundra intersects with topics in Permafrost, Plant community, Vegetation, Terrestrial ecosystem and Seedling. In the subject of general Ecosystem, his work in Chronosequence is often linked to Humanity, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Managing the whole landscape: historical, hybrid, and novel ecosystems (270 citations)
  • Social norms as solutions (219 citations)
  • Plant functional trait change across a warming tundra biome (185 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem, Climate change and Biodiversity. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Construct and Interdependence. His Environmental resource management study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecosystem services, Stewardship, Biosphere and Value.

His Ecosystem study incorporates themes from Deglaciation, Paraglacial and Landform. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meteorology and Atmospheric sciences. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Data integration, Database, Ecology, Identification and Functional ecology.
