Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Paulo M. Brando mostly deals with Climate change, Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Deforestation and Ecosystem. His Amazon rainforest study combines topics in areas such as Forest dieback, Natural resource economics, Forestry and Sustainable development. The Deforestation study combines topics in areas such as Biomass, Nitrous oxide, Enforcement and Agricultural economics.

His Biomass research includes elements of Meteorology, Secondary forest, Land management and Invasive species. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Native forest and Aquatic ecosystem. His Carbon cycle research incorporates elements of Rainforest, Agronomy and Soil respiration.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • The 2010 Amazon Drought (732 citations)
  • Slowing Amazon deforestation through public policy and interventions in beef and soy supply chains (569 citations)

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

Paulo M. Brando mainly investigates Amazon rainforest, Ecology, Deforestation, Agroforestry and Climate change. Paulo M. Brando combines subjects such as Forestry, Ecosystem, Fire regime, Understory and Rainforest with his study of Amazon rainforest. His biological study deals with issues like Forest dieback, which deal with fields such as Invasive species and Temperate climate.

His work in Ecology covers topics such as Agronomy which are related to areas like Introduced species, Soil water and Throughfall. The study incorporates disciplines such as Land management, Land use, Environmental protection, Biomass and Secondary forest in addition to Deforestation. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Latent heat and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Amazon rainforest (63.87%)
  • Ecology (44.54%)
  • Deforestation (41.18%)

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

  • Amazon rainforest (63.87%)
  • Deforestation (41.18%)
  • Understory (26.89%)

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

His main research concerns Amazon rainforest, Deforestation, Understory, Agroforestry and Ecology. His Amazon rainforest research incorporates themes from Firestorm, Biodiversity and Fire regime. Paulo M. Brando has included themes like Agronomy, Acre, Fire frequency and Disturbance in his Deforestation study.

In his research on the topic of Understory, Climatic variables and Agriculture is strongly related with Forestry. His Agroforestry research focuses on subjects like Climate change, which are linked to Firebreak, Microclimate and Woody plant. His Amazonian, Aboveground biomass, Tropical forest and Community study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecology, is frequently linked to Physiognomy, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Droughts, Wildfires, and Forest Carbon Cycling: A Pantropical Synthesis (50 citations)
  • Fire, fragmentation, and windstorms: A recipe for tropical forest degradation (34 citations)
  • The gathering firestorm in southern Amazonia. (33 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Amazon rainforest, Agroforestry, Fire regime, Deforestation and Understory. His research integrates issues of Carbon cycle and Ecosystem in his study of Amazon rainforest. His work deals with themes such as Agriculture, Climate change, Tropical forest, Forest dynamics and Forest degradation, which intersect with Agroforestry.

Paulo M. Brando interconnects Firebreak and Microclimate in the investigation of issues within Climate change. Paulo M. Brando combines topics linked to Greenhouse with his work on Deforestation. His Understory research integrates issues from Biomass, Amazonian and Disturbance.
