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.

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Rainforest, Biodiversity and Amazonian. While working in this field, Nigel C. A. Pitman studies both Ecology and Deforestation. His work deals with themes such as Habitat, Tropical climate, Tropics, Physical geography and Dominance, which intersect with Amazon rainforest.

His research in Rainforest intersects with topics in Agroforestry and Carbon sink. His Biodiversity research includes themes of Environmental change and Species richness. His research investigates the connection between Amazonian and topics such as Rare species that intersect with problems in Generalist and specialist species, Common species and Iriartea.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Beta-Diversity in Tropical Forest Trees (1061 citations)
  • Averting biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas (662 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Amazonian, Biodiversity and Biomass. Rainforest, Species richness, Tropics, Habitat and Tropical climate are the core of his Ecology study. His work carried out in the field of Amazon rainforest brings together such families of science as Edaphic, Carbon sink, Dry season, Dominance and Biogeography.

His Amazonian research focuses on Rare species and how it connects with Common species. His work is dedicated to discovering how Biodiversity, Range are connected with Canopy and other disciplines. His work in Biomass tackles topics such as Productivity which are related to areas like Carbon cycle and Liana.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (81.98%)
  • Amazon rainforest (52.25%)
  • Amazonian (32.43%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Amazon rainforest (52.25%)
  • Ecology (81.98%)
  • Amazonian (32.43%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Amazonian, Taxon and Ecosystem. Nigel C. A. Pitman combines subjects such as Range, Biodiversity, Forest ecology, Forest dynamics and Understory with his study of Amazon rainforest. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Dry season and Tropics.

His study in Rare species, Subtropics, Dominance, Edaphic and Diameter at breast height are all subfields of Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Global biodiversity, Flora and Identification as well as Amazonian. His work in Ecosystem addresses issues such as Biomass, which are connected to fields such as Tropical climate and Productivity.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Compositional response of Amazon forests to climate change (111 citations)
  • Long-term thermal sensitivity of Earth’s tropical forests (38 citations)
  • Towards a dynamic list of Amazonian tree species. (30 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Taxon, Tropics and Amazonian are his primary areas of study. His research investigates the connection between Amazon rainforest and topics such as Edaphic that intersect with problems in Rare species. His study in Competition, Biome and Community structure is carried out as part of his Ecology studies.

His Tropics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biodiversity and Climate change. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Tropical climate and Carbon cycle. The concepts of his Amazonian study are interwoven with issues in Global biodiversity, Flora, Identification and Dry season.
