What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Josep Peñuelas mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Climate change and Mediterranean climate. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity, Nutrient and Nitrogen cycle. Botany is often connected to Horticulture in his work.

His Climate change research includes elements of Primary production, Agriculture and Precipitation. His Mediterranean climate research integrates issues from Shrubland, Woody plant and Agronomy. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomass and Atmospheric sciences.

His most cited work include:

  • European phenological response to climate change matches the warming pattern (2012 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)
  • A narrow-waveband spectral index that tracks diurnal changes in photosynthetic efficiency (1380 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Mediterranean climate and Agronomy. His study in Climate change, Vegetation, Phenology, Biodiversity and Species richness falls within the category of Ecology. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Terpene, Horticulture and Water content.

His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Biomass and Soil carbon. His Mediterranean climate course of study focuses on Shrubland and Shrub. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil water and Nutrient.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (32.15%)
  • Botany (24.88%)
  • Ecosystem (20.65%)

  • Ecology (32.15%)
  • Ecosystem (20.65%)
  • Agronomy (15.93%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Agronomy, Atmospheric sciences and Nutrient. His research investigates the connection between Ecosystem and topics such as Mediterranean climate that intersect with issues in Oak forest and Canopy. His research on Agronomy also deals with topics like

  • Soil water which connect with Carbon,
  • Greenhouse gas and related Carbon dioxide.

His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Photosynthesis, Eddy covariance, Carbon cycle, Vegetation and Carbon sink. His Nutrient study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phosphorus and Global change. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Precipitation and Phenology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Drought impacts on terrestrial primary production underestimated by satellite monitoring (93 citations)
  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecosystem, Ecology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change and Vegetation. His studies deal with areas such as Biodiversity, Nutrient, Agronomy and Biosphere as well as Ecosystem. Ecology and Antibiotic resistance are commonly linked in his work.

His Atmospheric sciences research also works with subjects such as

  • Carbon sink together with Carbon sequestration, Global warming and Temperate climate,
  • Carbon cycle which intersects with area such as Productivity,
  • Precipitation that intertwine with fields like Mediterranean climate,
  • Biome and related Macroecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Forest management, Temperate rainforest, Land management and Water content. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Photosynthesis, Evapotranspiration and Leaf area index.
