2019 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Hydrology, Eutrophication and Aquatic ecosystem. His is doing research in Freshwater ecosystem, Phytoplankton, Biodiversity, Carbon cycle and Primary productivity, both of which are found in Ecology. John A. Downing focuses mostly in the field of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to topics relating to Oceanography and, in certain cases, Sampling and Amazon rainforest.
In his study, Lake ecosystem and Macrophyte is strongly linked to Abundance, which falls under the umbrella field of Hydrology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Eutrophication, narrowing it down to issues related to the Drainage basin, and often Total organic carbon, Water quality, Pasture and Agriculture. The concepts of his Aquatic ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Dominance, Ecology and Botany.
Ecology, Eutrophication, Ecosystem, Water quality and Phytoplankton are his primary areas of study. His Ecology study often links to related topics such as Population density. His Eutrophication research includes elements of Drainage basin, Hydrology, Carbon cycle, Dissolved organic carbon and Carbon dioxide.
John A. Downing combines subjects such as Estuary, Oceanography, Aquatic ecosystem and Biodiversity with his study of Ecosystem. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental economics, Recreation and Environmental protection. His research integrates issues of Primary productivity and Plankton in his study of Phytoplankton.
John A. Downing mainly focuses on Ecology, Eutrophication, Ecosystem, Water quality and Phytoplankton. His study in Nutrient, Aquatic ecosystem, Bloom, Freshwater ecosystem and Biodiversity is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. John A. Downing has included themes like Lake ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Trophic level, Dissolved organic carbon and Carbon dioxide in his Eutrophication study.
His Carbon cycle study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Limnology, Organic matter and Total organic carbon. The various areas that he examines in his Water quality study include Enforcement, Proxy, Environmental planning and Environmental protection. His Phytoplankton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Watershed, Zooplankton, Land cover, Plankton and Dominance.
His primary areas of study are Ecology, Eutrophication, Water quality, Environmental protection and Greenhouse gas. In most of his Ecology studies, his work intersects topics such as Variety. His Eutrophication research incorporates elements of Carbon dioxide and Global change.
His Greenhouse gas research incorporates themes from Fossil fuel and Methane. His Ecosystem services course of study focuses on Species evenness and Ecosystem. His Carbon cycle research focuses on subjects like Abundance, which are linked to Hydrology.
