2002 - William S. Cooper Award, The Ecological Society of America Dominance and distribution of tree species in upper Amazonian terra firme forests. Ecology 82:2101–2117.
His primary areas of study are Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Amazonian, Biodiversity and Climate change. His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Extinction. Miles R. Silman has researched Amazon rainforest in several fields, including Agriculture and Tropics.
His Amazonian research incorporates elements of Species richness, Agroforestry, Rare species and Disturbance. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global warming, Nature reserve and Threatened species. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Ice age and Logging.
Miles R. Silman focuses on Ecology, Amazonian, Amazon rainforest, Ecosystem and Climate change. His research brings together the fields of Extinction and Ecology. His research in Amazonian intersects with topics in National park, Rainforest, Rare species and Common species.
His Amazon rainforest research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry, Disturbance, Soil water, Disturbance and Forestry. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Productivity, Elevation, Physical geography and Tropical climate. His Climate change research integrates issues from Climatology and Tropics.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Physical geography, Elevation, Amazon rainforest and Ecosystem. Miles R. Silman combines Ecology and Sorting in his studies. His work carried out in the field of Physical geography brings together such families of science as Tree and Scale.
Miles R. Silman studies Amazonian which is a part of Amazon rainforest. Miles R. Silman focuses mostly in the field of Amazonian, narrowing it down to topics relating to Estimator and, in certain cases, Relative abundance distribution. Miles R. Silman combines subjects such as Stratification, Bryophyte, Epiphyte and Isotope analysis with his study of Ecosystem.
His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Amazon rainforest, Species richness, Elevation and Physical geography. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Species richness, Species diversity, Forestry, Basal area, Diameter at breast height and Subtropics is strongly linked to Range. The study incorporates disciplines such as Productivity, Ecology, Tree, Ecosystem and Global change in addition to Elevation.
His Ecosystem study is concerned with the larger field of Ecology. His study in the field of Tropics, Monodominance and Edaphic is also linked to topics like Coppicing. His Physical geography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxonomy, Estimator, Relative abundance distribution and Amazonian.
