Honorary Member of the British Ecological Society
Peter M. Vitousek spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Nutrient, Nitrogen cycle and Terrestrial ecosystem. His Nitrogen fixation research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. His study on Primary production is often connected to Context as part of broader study in Ecosystem.
The Nutrient study combines topics in areas such as Soil water, Chronosequence, Productivity, Agronomy and Acid phosphatase. Peter M. Vitousek interconnects Nitrification, Phosphorus metabolism, Mineralization, Cycling and Nitrate in the investigation of issues within Nitrogen cycle. He has researched Terrestrial ecosystem in several fields, including Fixation, Marine ecosystem, Herbivore and Biogeochemistry.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Nutrient, Soil water and Agronomy. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Nitrification and Nitrogen cycle. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biomass, Atmospheric sciences and Biogeochemistry.
His work is dedicated to discovering how Nutrient, Botany are connected with Nitrogen fixation and other disciplines. His Soil water research includes elements of Hydrology, Environmental chemistry and Weathering. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agriculture and Metrosideros polymorpha.
Peter M. Vitousek focuses on Ecology, Agriculture, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Soil water. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry and Nitrogen cycle. His work deals with themes such as Nitrogen fixation, Nitrate and Terrestrial ecosystem, which intersect with Nitrogen cycle.
His Ecosystem study frequently links to related topics such as Soil acidification. His research integrates issues of Agroecosystem and Intensive farming in his study of Agronomy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental chemistry, Total organic carbon, Biogeochemical cycle and Cycling in addition to Soil water.
Ecology, Soil water, Agriculture, Ecosystem and Environmental chemistry are his primary areas of study. His Ecology research integrates issues from Nitrogen cycle and Botany. His Nitrogen cycle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Reactive nitrogen, Nitrate, Terrestrial ecosystem and Biogeochemistry.
The various areas that he examines in his Soil water study include Weathering, Nutrient and Cycling. Within one scientific family, Peter M. Vitousek focuses on topics pertaining to Agronomy under Agriculture, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Crop production. As a part of the same scientific family, Peter M. Vitousek mostly works in the field of Ecosystem, focusing on Soil acidification and, on occasion, Forest ecology and Transpiration.
