What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services and Botany. His research in Biodiversity, Global change, Grassland, Ecology and Forb are components of Ecology. He interconnects Environmental change, Carbon cycle and Phenology in the investigation of issues within Global change.

His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Greenhouse effect, Carbon dioxide and Agronomy. His research investigates the connection between Ecosystem services and topics such as Ecosystem management that intersect with issues in Ecosystem valuation. His work in the fields of Botany, such as Photosynthesis, intersects with other areas such as Context.

His most cited work include:

  • Human Domination of Earth's Ecosystems (6960 citations)
  • Global biodiversity scenarios for the year 2100. (6358 citations)
  • Effect of aquaculture on world fish supplies (2204 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Botany, Photosynthesis, Ecosystem and Environmental resource management. His Ecology research focuses on Ecology, Global change, Evergreen, Grassland and Mediterranean climate. His Evergreen research incorporates elements of Sclerophyll and Deciduous.

His studies deal with areas such as Nutrient, Carbon dioxide, Agronomy and Horticulture as well as Botany. His Primary production and Terrestrial ecosystem investigations are all subjects of Ecosystem research. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Biodiversity and Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (39.27%)
  • Botany (22.96%)
  • Photosynthesis (16.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Environmental resource management (14.59%)
  • Ecosystem services (10.73%)
  • Biodiversity (14.16%)

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

Harold A. Mooney focuses on Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Biodiversity, Ecology and Environmental planning. His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, Government, Faith and Ecosystem health. Ecosystem services is a subfield of Ecosystem that Harold A. Mooney investigates.

His Ecosystem study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Climate change. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecology and Science policy. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Botany.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Science for managing ecosystem services: Beyond the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (1399 citations)
  • Ecosystem services in decision making: time to deliver (1332 citations)
  • The IPBES Conceptual Framework - connecting nature and people (913 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Harold A. Mooney spends much of his time researching Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Ecology. His Ecosystem services research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Conceptual framework, Sustainability, Strategic planning and Value. His studies in Environmental resource management integrate themes in fields like Convention on Biological Diversity, Science policy, Ecosystem health and Negotiation.

Harold A. Mooney has included themes like Natural resource economics, Global change and Intervention in his Biodiversity study. Harold A. Mooney interconnects Agroforestry, Land use and Agricultural economics in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regional science, Globalization and Economic geography.
