What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Ecosystem, Canopy, Ecology and Vegetation. The concepts of his Remote sensing study are interwoven with issues in Leaf area index and Imaging spectrometer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Deforestation, Biodiversity, Environmental resource management and Land use in addition to Ecosystem.

His Canopy research includes elements of Rainforest, Agroforestry, Spectral signature and Logging. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Forestry. The Vegetation study which covers Primary production that intersects with Atmosphere and Biosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Consequences of Land Use (7368 citations)
  • The velocity of climate change (1456 citations)
  • Biophysical and Biochemical Sources of Variability in Canopy Reflectance (884 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Remote sensing, Canopy, Ecosystem and Vegetation. Gregory P. Asner frequently studies issues relating to Spatial variability and Ecology. His Remote sensing study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Imaging spectrometer.

In his research, Deforestation is intimately related to Forestry, which falls under the overarching field of Canopy. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Land use, Atmospheric sciences and Environmental resource management. His Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Arid and Woody plant.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (33.86%)
  • Remote sensing (30.40%)
  • Canopy (23.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (33.86%)
  • Canopy (23.49%)
  • Ecosystem (22.05%)

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

Gregory P. Asner focuses on Ecology, Canopy, Ecosystem, Remote sensing and Coral reef. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rainforest, Abundance, Tropics and Agronomy. His study in Tropics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agroforestry, Biodiversity, Deforestation and Ecosystem services.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Elevation, Climate change, Biogeochemical cycle, Physical geography and Crown. His work on Remote sensing, Lidar and Satellite imagery as part of general Remote sensing research is frequently linked to Dove and Planet, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work in Abiotic component addresses issues such as Vegetation, which are connected to fields such as Spatial variability.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • A Global Deal For Nature: Guiding principles, milestones, and targets (170 citations)
  • An above-ground biomass map of African savannahs and woodlands at 25 m resolution derived from ALOS PALSAR (76 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Canopy, Ecosystem, Tropics, Biodiversity and Remote sensing. Gregory P. Asner is interested in Tree canopy, which is a branch of Canopy. His study looks at the relationship between Tree canopy and fields such as Drought stress, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

The various areas that Gregory P. Asner examines in his Ecosystem study include Remote sensing, Global warming, Climate change, Physical geography and Reef. His research investigates the connection with Tropics and areas like Carbon sequestration which intersect with concerns in Agroforestry, Deforestation, Greenhouse gas and Ecosystem services. His Remote sensing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Coral reef, Bathymetry and Biome.
