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, Biomass, Tropical climate and Biodiversity. Carbon sink, Rainforest, Ecosystem, Amazonian and Forest dynamics are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Oliver L. Phillips combines subjects such as Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide, Sink and Carbon cycle with his study of Carbon sink.

His studies in Amazon rainforest integrate themes in fields like Dominance, Forest ecology and Woody plant. He has included themes like Forestry, Basal area, Tropics and Allometry in his Biomass study. The various areas that he examines in his Biodiversity study include Extinction, Habitat, Seasonality, Species richness and Ecosystem model.

His most cited work include:

  • Extinction risk from climate change (5460 citations)
  • A Large and Persistent Carbon Sink in the World’s Forests (3463 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Biomass, Biodiversity and Ecosystem. His study in Amazonian, Rainforest, Climate change, Tropics and Species richness falls under the purview of Ecology. His Amazon rainforest research also works with subjects such as

  • Carbon sink which connect with Atmospheric sciences, Sink and Carbon dioxide,
  • Agroforestry which intersects with area such as Deforestation.

His study in Biomass is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Forestry, Basal area, Productivity, Tropical climate and Forest dynamics. His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Canopy and Species diversity. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbon sequestration and Forest inventory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (54.37%)
  • Amazon rainforest (30.14%)
  • Biomass (25.92%)

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

  • Ecology (54.37%)
  • Amazon rainforest (30.14%)
  • Biomass (25.92%)

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

Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Biomass, Biodiversity and Tropics are his primary areas of study. His Amazon rainforest research includes elements of Edaphic, Forest dynamics, Tree species and Tree canopy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Subtropics, Agroforestry, Climate change mitigation, Climate change and Ecosystem in addition to Biomass.

He combines subjects such as Environmental resource management, Species richness and Threatened species with his study of Biodiversity. The concepts of his Tropics study are interwoven with issues in Global warming and Hectare. His study looks at the relationship between Forest ecology and topics such as Tropical climate, which overlap with Carbon sequestration and Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Compositional response of Amazon forests to climate change (111 citations)
  • Asynchronous carbon sink saturation in African and Amazonian tropical forests (84 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Biomass, Tropics and Biodiversity. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Understory, Rare species, Carbon cycle and Forest ecology. His studies in Amazon rainforest integrate themes in fields like Edaphic, Taxon, Productivity, Forest dynamics and Ecosystem.

His Biomass research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climate change mitigation, Physical geography and Biome. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Tropics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Climate change, and often Hectare. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Representativeness heuristic, Amazonian and Database.
