Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Paulo M. Fernandes focuses on Fire regime, Prescribed burn, Ecology, Vegetation and Mediterranean climate. He has researched Fire regime in several fields, including Land use, Pinus pinaster and Fire ecology. Paulo M. Fernandes has included themes like Agroforestry, Kyoto Protocol, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Hazard and Environmental resource management in his Prescribed burn study.

His research in Environmental resource management intersects with topics in Natural hazard, Scale, Cultural landscape and Ecosystem services. His study in Ecology focuses on Forest management and Disturbance. Paulo M. Fernandes combines subjects such as Boreal and Meteorology with his study of Vegetation.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of prescribed burning effectiveness in fire hazard reduction (436 citations)
  • Modelling natural disturbances in forest ecosystems: a review (239 citations)
  • Efficient descriptor-vector multiplications in stochastic automata networks (196 citations)

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

Ecology, Forestry, Fire regime, Environmental resource management and Vegetation are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Pinus pinaster, Eucalyptus globulus and Understory, which intersect with Forestry. Paulo M. Fernandes interconnects Climatology, Land use, Mediterranean Basin, Environmental protection and Flammable liquid in the investigation of issues within Fire regime.

His study looks at the relationship between Environmental resource management and topics such as Ecosystem services, which overlap with Cultural landscape. His studies deal with areas such as Boreal and Meteorology as well as Vegetation. The various areas that Paulo M. Fernandes examines in his Prescribed burn study include Hazard, Habitat, Fire ecology and Shrub.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (19.09%)
  • Forestry (16.60%)
  • Fire regime (15.77%)

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

  • Environmental resource management (14.11%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (6.22%)
  • Ecology (19.09%)

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

Paulo M. Fernandes mostly deals with Environmental resource management, Atmospheric sciences, Ecology, Forest management and Prescribed burn. His study in Environmental resource management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both High forest and Climate change. His Forest management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hazard, Landscape level, Fuel treatment and Extreme weather.

His study on Prescribed burn is covered under Forestry. His Afforestation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mediterranean climate and Fire regime. His Fire regime course of study focuses on Mediterranean Basin and Physical geography.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Defining Extreme Wildfire Events: Difficulties, Challenges, and Impacts (75 citations)
  • Wildfire management in Mediterranean-type regions: paradigm change needed (49 citations)
  • Portugal and Chile: Longing for sustainable forestry while rising from the ashes (41 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Paulo M. Fernandes mainly investigates Prescribed burn, Mediterranean climate, Vegetation, Ecology and Ecosystem services. The concepts of his Prescribed burn study are interwoven with issues in Hazard, Toxicology, Explained variation, Fuel treatment and Pinus pinaster. Paulo M. Fernandes usually deals with Mediterranean climate and limits it to topics linked to Global warming and Land use.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Forestry and Eucalyptus globulus in addition to Vegetation. In his research on the topic of Ecosystem services, Fire ecology and Forest management is strongly related with Sustainability. His research investigates the connection with Fire ecology and areas like Forest floor which intersect with concerns in Environmental resource management.
