His primary areas of study are Soil contamination, Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Ecology and Orchesella cincta. His Soil contamination research incorporates themes from Soil quality and Environmental remediation. His work in the fields of Soil water, such as Soil type, Soil pH and Soil chemistry, overlaps with other areas such as Partition coefficient.
His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Enchytraeidae and Eisenia andrei. His study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Biochemical engineering with Ranking and Model selection. His studies deal with areas such as Toxicity data and Aquatic species as well as Global biodiversity.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Water quality, Environmental planning, Environmental chemistry and Environmental resource management. In general Ecology study, his work on Ecotoxicology, Ecosystem and Habitat often relates to the realm of Stressor and Orchesella cincta, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work in the fields of Water Framework Directive overlaps with other areas such as Context.
In his work, Leo Posthuma performs multidisciplinary research in Water Framework Directive and European union. His study ties his expertise on Soil water together with the subject of Environmental chemistry. He combines subjects such as Decision support system and Land use with his study of Environmental resource management.
His primary areas of study are Water quality, Water Framework Directive, Environmental planning, Risk analysis and Context. His research in Water quality intersects with topics in Information exchange, Key, Aquatic ecosystem and Environmental quality. Aquatic ecosystem is a subfield of Ecology that Leo Posthuma investigates.
His study in Environmental quality is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental resource management, Chemical pollution and Land use. His research in Environmental planning tackles topics such as Ecosystem services which are related to areas like Filtration, Biofilter, Discharge, Mussel and Water treatment. His Risk analysis research focuses on Pollution and how it connects with Ecosystem management.
Leo Posthuma mainly investigates Water Framework Directive, Water quality, Environmental planning, Risk analysis and Environmental quality. The study incorporates disciplines such as Pollutant, Surface water and Environmental protection in addition to Water Framework Directive. His study in the field of Pollutant emissions is also linked to topics like Consumption.
His Water quality research includes themes of Hazard, Aquatic ecosystem and Ecotoxicity. The various areas that he examines in his Risk analysis study include Exposure assessment, Hazard analysis and Ecological risk. Leo Posthuma interconnects Key, Chemical pollution and Land use in the investigation of issues within Environmental quality.
