Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Statistics

Luca Salvati spends much of his time researching Mediterranean climate, Urban sprawl, Land degradation, Land use and Urbanization. His Mediterranean climate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Physical geography and Distribution. His Urban sprawl research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Descriptive statistics, Metropolitan area, Multivariate statistics and Economic geography.

Luca Salvati combines subjects such as Desertification, Environmental protection, Environmental resource management, Land management and Arid with his study of Land degradation. Luca Salvati has included themes like Vegetation and Soil retrogression and degradation in his Land use study. His work deals with themes such as Land cover and Spatial planning, which intersect with Urbanization.

His most cited work include:

  • Beyond urban–rural dichotomy: Exploring socioeconomic and land-use processes of change in Spain (1991–2011) (155 citations)
  • Long-Term Urban Growth and Land Use Efficiency in Southern Europe: Implications for Sustainable Land Management (140 citations)
  • The impact of land use/land cover changes on land degradation dynamics: a Mediterranean case study. (125 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Economic geography, Mediterranean climate, Metropolitan area, Urbanization and Land degradation. His research integrates issues of Population growth, Demographic transition, Socioeconomic status and Recession in his study of Economic geography. His Mediterranean climate study which covers Physical geography that intersects with Climate change.

His research investigates the link between Metropolitan area and topics such as Urban sprawl that cross with problems in Human settlement. His studies in Land degradation integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry, Desertification, Environmental resource management and Sustainable land management. His Environmental resource management research includes elements of Agriculture and Sustainability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Economic geography (28.83%)
  • Mediterranean climate (22.73%)
  • Metropolitan area (25.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Economic geography (28.83%)
  • Metropolitan area (25.21%)
  • Socioeconomic status (16.97%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Economic geography, Metropolitan area, Socioeconomic status, Urbanization and Context. His Metropolitan area research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Population growth, Fertility, Human geography and Human settlement. As a member of one scientific family, Luca Salvati mostly works in the field of Population growth, focusing on Population density and, on occasion, Spatial distribution, Distribution and Land degradation.

His Human settlement research incorporates elements of Agriculture and Urban sprawl. The Socioeconomic status study combines topics in areas such as Desertification, Demographic economics, Scale, Environmental planning and Recession. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mediterranean climate, Climate change and Environmental resource management in addition to Land management.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil Science Challenges in a New Era: A Transdisciplinary Overview of Relevant Topics (22 citations)
  • Updating the MEDALUS‐ESA Framework for Worldwide Land Degradation and Desertification Assessment (13 citations)
  • Factors underlying life quality in urban contexts: Evidence from an industrial city (arak, iran) (7 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Statistics

His primary areas of study are Economic geography, Metropolitan area, Socioeconomic status, Population growth and Urbanization. His studies examine the connections between Metropolitan area and genetics, as well as such issues in Human settlement, with regards to Agriculture, Physical geography and Fragmentation. His Socioeconomic status research integrates issues from Business cycle, Demographic economics and Recession.

His Population growth study also includes fields such as

  • Spatial heterogeneity and related Urban agglomeration and City size,
  • Distribution, Land degradation and Primary sector of the economy most often made with reference to Population density. His study looks at the relationship between Distribution and fields such as Cartography, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Urbanization study is focused on Economic growth in general.
