Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Primary production, Steppe and Vegetation. His research related to Grassland, Arid, Climate change, Biome and Biodiversity might be considered part of Ecology. His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Freshwater ecosystem and Ecological health.

His research in Ecosystem is mostly focused on Ecosystem services. In his study, Spatial variability and Biogeochemical cycle is inextricably linked to Water-use efficiency, which falls within the broad field of Primary production. His studies in Steppe integrate themes in fields like Shrub and Growing season.

His most cited work include:

  • Global biodiversity scenarios for the year 2100. (6358 citations)
  • Consequences of changing biodiversity (3081 citations)
  • A global analysis of root distributions for terrestrial biomes (2052 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Agronomy, Arid and Steppe. All of his Ecology and Primary production, Biodiversity, Vegetation, Grassland and Terrestrial ecosystem investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil water and Climate change, Global change in addition to Ecosystem.

Osvaldo E. Sala focuses mostly in the field of Agronomy, narrowing it down to matters related to Nitrogen cycle and, in some cases, Mineralization. His Arid research focuses on Trophic level and how it connects with Soil biology and Abundance. His research investigates the connection with Steppe and areas like Botany which intersect with concerns in Environmental chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (53.53%)
  • Ecosystem (46.47%)
  • Agronomy (20.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecosystem (46.47%)
  • Ecology (53.53%)
  • Climate change (17.84%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecosystem, Ecology, Climate change, Arid and Global change. The Ecosystem services research Osvaldo E. Sala does as part of his general Ecosystem study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Atmospheric sciences, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Ecology and Urban ecosystem are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary research.

Osvaldo E. Sala combines subjects such as Primary production, Groundwater, Carbon cycle, Physical geography and Groundwater recharge with his study of Climate change. His study looks at the relationship between Primary production and fields such as Productivity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His biological study deals with issues like Terrestrial ecosystem, which deal with fields such as Herbivore, Soil biology and Agronomy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pushing precipitation to the extremes in distributed experiments: recommendations for simulating wet and dry years. (75 citations)
  • Changes in belowground biodiversity during ecosystem development. (52 citations)
  • Asynchrony among local communities stabilises ecosystem function of metacommunities (48 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Osvaldo E. Sala mostly deals with Ecosystem, Ecology, Climate change, Arid and Ecosystem services. His Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Range and Species richness, Biodiversity, Beta diversity. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Abundance, Community structure, Plant community, Community composition and Global change.

His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Productivity, Primary production and Physical geography. His Primary production research includes elements of Steppe, Grassland and Carbon sink. His Ecosystem services research integrates issues from Rangeland management, Recreation and Environmental resource management.
