Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Deforestation, Carbon cycle and Ecosystem. Primary production, Rainforest, Soil water, Forest ecology and Biodiversity are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study. Luiz E. O. C. Aragão has included themes like Tropical climate, Climate change, Carbon sink and Tropics in his Amazon rainforest study.

His Deforestation research includes elements of Agroforestry, Environmental resource management, Greenhouse gas and Sustainable development. Luiz E. O. C. Aragão focuses mostly in the field of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cycling and, in certain cases, Transect, Ecophysiology and Ecosystem respiration. His Amazonian research focuses on Dry season and how it connects with Physical geography.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • CO2 balance of boreal, temperate, and tropical forests derived from a global database (718 citations)
  • Exploring the likelihood and mechanism of a climate-change-induced dieback of the Amazon rainforest. (597 citations)

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

His main research concerns Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Deforestation, Amazonian and Atmospheric sciences. His study in Amazon rainforest is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change, Forestry, Vegetation, Greenhouse gas and Rainforest. His work in Ecosystem, Primary production, Biomass, Carbon cycle and Productivity is related to Ecology.

His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Dry season and Global change. His Deforestation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry, Land use, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Environmental protection and Tropics. Luiz E. O. C. Aragão has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Canopy, Leaf area index and Seasonality.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Amazon rainforest (71.56%)
  • Ecology (43.11%)
  • Deforestation (34.43%)

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

  • Amazon rainforest (71.56%)
  • Deforestation (34.43%)
  • Amazonian (28.14%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Amazon rainforest, Deforestation, Amazonian, Agroforestry and Atmospheric sciences. His Amazon rainforest study is associated with Ecology. His Deforestation research incorporates themes from Dominance, Tropics, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Environmental protection.

Luiz E. O. C. Aragão works mostly in the field of Amazonian, limiting it down to topics relating to Vegetation and, in certain cases, Chronosequence, as a part of the same area of interest. His Agroforestry study incorporates themes from Ecosystem, Disturbance and Land use. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Global warming, Climate change, Carbon cycle and Greenhouse gas.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global Carbon Budget 2020 (43 citations)
  • Global Carbon Budget 2020 (43 citations)
  • Long-term thermal sensitivity of Earth’s tropical forests (38 citations)
