Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Marten Scheffer focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Alternative stable state, Tipping point and Biodiversity. His research in Phytoplankton, Climate change, Competition, Eutrophication and Nutrient are components of Ecology. His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Anthropocene and Earth system science.

He has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management and Body size. Marten Scheffer has included themes like Ecological resilience, PCLake, Desertification, Regime shift and Spatial heterogeneity in his Alternative stable state study. His study in Tipping point is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Complex system, Lead pollution, Risk analysis and Autocorrelation.

His most cited work include:

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Catastrophic shifts in ecosystems. (4775 citations)
  • Planetary boundaries: Exploring the safe operating space for humanity (2805 citations)

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

Marten Scheffer mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Alternative stable state, Climate change and Phytoplankton. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Eutrophication, Macrophyte, Zooplankton, Plankton and Biodiversity. His work carried out in the field of Eutrophication brings together such families of science as Dominance and Algae.

His study looks at the relationship between Ecosystem and fields such as Environmental resource management, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His studies deal with areas such as PCLake, Vegetation and Regime shift as well as Alternative stable state. Marten Scheffer interconnects Climatology and Atmospheric sciences in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (46.92%)
  • Ecosystem (19.06%)
  • Alternative stable state (15.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecosystem (19.06%)
  • Ecology (46.92%)
  • Climate change (11.14%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecosystem, Ecology, Climate change, Psychological resilience and Tipping point. His Ecosystem research includes elements of Biodiversity, Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management and Natural selection. Ecology is closely attributed to Physical geography in his research.

His work deals with themes such as Rainforest, Coral reef, Tropical climate and Amazon rainforest, which intersect with Climate change. Marten Scheffer has included themes like Floodplain, Biosphere, Status quo, Development economics and Anthropocene in his Psychological resilience study. His study focuses on the intersection of Tipping point and fields such as Autocorrelation with connections in the field of Climatology and Stability.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trajectories of the Earth System in the Anthropocene (764 citations)
  • Coral reefs in the Anthropocene (622 citations)
  • Complexity theory and financial regulation (226 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Marten Scheffer mainly focuses on Climate change, Tipping point, Ecosystem, Ecology and Psychological resilience. His studies deal with areas such as Lidar, Anthropocene and Amazon rainforest as well as Climate change. The concepts of his Tipping point study are interwoven with issues in Remote sensing, Remote sensing, Tropical forest and Precipitation.

Marten Scheffer specializes in Ecosystem, namely Alternative stable state. As part of his studies on Ecology, Marten Scheffer frequently links adjacent subjects like Physical geography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Financial market, Natural resource economics, Financial regulation and Lexicon.
