His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biomass, Vegetation, Species diversity and Biodiversity. His work on Herbivore, Ecosystem and Gallery forest is typically connected to Productivity as part of general Ecology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Biomass study incorporates themes from Soil science, Productivity, Soil texture, Nutrient cycle and Biogeochemistry.
His Vegetation research includes themes of Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Woody plant and Tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and shrublands. Rangeland and Dik-dik is closely connected to Plant community in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Species diversity. His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Trophic level, Detritivore, Species richness and Ecosystem services.
Mahesh Sankaran spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Herbivore, Biomass and Biodiversity. His Agroforestry research extends to the thematically linked field of Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Competition and Agronomy.
His Herbivore study also includes
Mahesh Sankaran mainly focuses on Biomass, Ecology, Grassland, Herbivore and Agronomy. His studies deal with areas such as Productivity, Biodiversity, Climate change and Basal area as well as Biomass. Mahesh Sankaran integrates several fields in his works, including Ecology and Ulex europaeus.
The Grassland study which covers Agroforestry that intersects with Carbon storage and Climate change mitigation. His study focuses on the intersection of Herbivore and fields such as Acacia with connections in the field of Edaphic, Tropics and Microclimate. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Nutrient and Ecosystem.
His main research concerns Ecology, Herbivore, Acacia, Biomass and Productivity. Mahesh Sankaran interconnects Tropics, Grassland, Vegetation, Microclimate and Seedling in the investigation of issues within Herbivore. The concepts of his Biomass study are interwoven with issues in Soil water, Soil carbon, Basal area, Canopy and Beta diversity.
Beta diversity is a subfield of Biodiversity that Mahesh Sankaran studies. His work on Biodiversity conservation as part of general Biodiversity research is often related to Globe, thus linking different fields of science. His Productivity research includes elements of Plant community, Environmental change and Ecosystem.
