Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Luiz Antonio Martinelli spends much of his time researching Ecology, Hydrology, Amazon rainforest, Floodplain and Carbon cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Organic matter, Dissolved organic carbon and Dry season in addition to Hydrology. His work carried out in the field of Amazon rainforest brings together such families of science as Phytoplankton, Isotope analysis and Litter.

His work in Carbon cycle addresses subjects such as Soil organic matter, which are connected to disciplines such as Soil texture. His studies deal with areas such as Reactive nitrogen, Nitrogen cycle, Phosphorus metabolism and Environmental protection as well as Ecosystem. His work on Human impact on the nitrogen cycle is typically connected to Industrial production as part of general Nitrogen cycle study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Transformation of the Nitrogen Cycle: Recent Trends, Questions, and Potential Solutions (3648 citations)
  • Nutrient Imbalances in agricultural development (830 citations)
  • Towards an ecological understanding of biological nitrogen fixation (667 citations)

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

Ecology, Hydrology, Amazon rainforest, Drainage basin and Ecosystem are his primary areas of study. In his study, Canopy is strongly linked to δ13C, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecology. The Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Organic matter and Dissolved organic carbon.

His research on Amazon rainforest frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Deforestation. His Drainage basin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Structural basin and Land use. The study of Ecosystem is intertwined with the study of Nitrogen cycle in a number of ways.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (26.06%)
  • Hydrology (25.76%)
  • Amazon rainforest (14.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (26.06%)
  • Agriculture (6.97%)
  • Hydrology (25.76%)

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

Luiz Antonio Martinelli mainly focuses on Ecology, Agriculture, Hydrology, δ13C and Agronomy. As part of his studies on Ecology, he often connects relevant subjects like STREAMS. His Agriculture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry, Sustainability, Greenhouse gas and Bioenergy.

His Hydrology research includes themes of Riparian zone and Sewage. The various areas that he examines in his Agronomy study include Soil type and Soil water. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry and Biogeochemistry.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The phosphorus cost of agricultural intensification in the tropics (83 citations)
  • Reassessing the environmental impacts of sugarcane ethanol production in Brazil to help meet sustainability goals. (58 citations)
  • Changes in soil carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus due to land-use changes in Brazil (41 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Luiz Antonio Martinelli mostly deals with Agriculture, Agronomy, Soil water, Ecology and Amazon rainforest. His study in Agriculture is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agroforestry, Sustainability and Greenhouse gas. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil type and Tropics.

In general Ecology study, his work on Nutrient often relates to the realm of Trace, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His study looks at the relationship between Nutrient and topics such as Lysimeter, which overlap with Hydrology. Luiz Antonio Martinelli combines subjects such as Soil carbon, Land use, Sewage, Urbanization and Watershed management with his study of Amazon rainforest.
