Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Agroforestry, Old-growth forest, Secondary forest and Tropical climate. His Rainforest, Ecology, Plant community and Pioneer species study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Miconia. His Rainforest research incorporates themes from Biodiversity and Climax.

His Agroforestry research incorporates elements of Ecological succession and Soil fertility. The Secondary forest study combines topics in areas such as Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Forest ecology and Soil biodiversity. As part of one scientific family, Michael D. Swaine deals mainly with the area of Tropical climate, narrowing it down to issues related to the Biomass, and often Carbon sink, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Vegetation, Forestry and Carbon sequestration.

His most cited work include:

  • On the definition of ecological species groups in tropical rain forests (1046 citations)
  • Increasing carbon storage in intact African tropical forests (746 citations)
  • Distribution and ecology of vascular plants in a tropical rain forest: Forest vegetation in Ghana (349 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Agroforestry, Rainforest, Canopy and Forest ecology. His biological study deals with issues like Agronomy, which deal with fields such as Soil fertility and Botany. The study incorporates disciplines such as Logging and Ecological succession in addition to Agroforestry.

His Rainforest research integrates issues from Tropical climate, Forestry and Tropics. In his research on the topic of Canopy, Plant ecology is strongly related with Liana. His work deals with themes such as Forest management, Forest inventory and Pioneer species, which intersect with Forest ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (43.42%)
  • Agroforestry (28.95%)
  • Rainforest (18.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Ecology (43.42%)
  • Agroforestry (28.95%)
  • Forest ecology (15.79%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Agroforestry, Forest ecology, Canopy and Biodiversity. His Agroforestry course of study focuses on Logging and Ceiba, Ecological succession, Celtis mildbraedii, Natural regeneration and Semi-deciduous. His work carried out in the field of Forest ecology brings together such families of science as Forest management and Forest inventory.

His Canopy study deals with Photosynthetic capacity intersecting with Productivity. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Forest biodiversity and Environmental planning. His research in Deciduous tackles topics such as Evergreen which are related to areas like Biomass, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Rainforest and Tropical climate.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Drought‐induced shifts in the floristic and functional composition of tropical forests in Ghana (161 citations)
  • Asynchronous carbon sink saturation in African and Amazonian tropical forests (84 citations)
  • Diversity distribution and floristic differentiation of the coastal lowland vegetation: implications for the conservation of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest (80 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Michael D. Swaine mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Tropical climate, Species distribution and Forest ecology. His Biodiversity research includes elements of Floristics, Detrended correspondence analysis and Biome. The concepts of his Tropical climate study are interwoven with issues in Biomass and Rainforest.

His Biomass research incorporates elements of Global warming, Climate change, Secondary forest and Tropics. His Rainforest study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Evergreen, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests and Deciduous. His Forest ecology research integrates issues from Sink, Carbon sequestration, Carbon sink and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide.
