Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Statistics
  • Ecology

Agriculture, Food security, Climate change, Livestock and Agricultural economics are his primary areas of study. The various areas that Philip K. Thornton examines in his Agriculture study include Productivity, Economic growth and Greenhouse gas. The Food systems research he does as part of his general Food security study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Food processing, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His Climate change research integrates issues from Cropping, Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning. His Livestock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Poverty, Sustainability, Land management and Livelihood. As a part of the same scientific family, Philip K. Thornton mostly works in the field of Agricultural economics, focusing on Natural resource and, on occasion, Ecosystem services and Factors of production.

His most cited work include:

  • Livestock production: recent trends, future prospects (1002 citations)
  • Sustainable Intensification in Agriculture: Premises and Policies (853 citations)
  • Decision support system for agrotechnology transfer: DSSAT v3 (832 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Agriculture, Food security, Climate change, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning. His research in Agriculture intersects with topics in Livestock and Agricultural economics. His Livestock research includes elements of Developing country, Urbanization, Population growth and Agricultural science.

His study in the fields of Food systems under the domain of Food security overlaps with other disciplines such as Food processing. He interconnects Poverty, Agroforestry, Productivity and Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Climate change. His research integrates issues of Natural resource and Crop yield in his study of Natural resource economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agriculture (60.14%)
  • Food security (57.73%)
  • Climate change (46.39%)

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

  • Food security (57.73%)
  • Agriculture (60.14%)
  • Climate change (46.39%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Food security, Agriculture, Climate change, Natural resource economics and Food systems. Philip K. Thornton has researched Food security in several fields, including Ecosystem, Livelihood and Sustainable development. In general Agriculture, his work in Agricultural productivity is often linked to Food processing linking many areas of study.

His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Livestock and Environmental planning. His work carried out in the field of Livestock brings together such families of science as Productivity, Scenario analysis and Natural resource. His research investigates the connection between Food systems and topics such as Environmental economics that intersect with problems in Stakeholder.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Innovation can accelerate the transition towards a sustainable food system (29 citations)
  • High-resolution and bias-corrected CMIP5 projections for climate change impact assessments. (27 citations)
  • High-resolution and bias-corrected CMIP5 projections for climate change impact assessments. (27 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Statistics
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Food security, Climate change, Agriculture, Impact assessment and Natural resource economics. His Food security research incorporates elements of Capacity building, Sustainable agriculture and Environmental economics. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Agroforestry, Rangeland, Livestock and Grazing.

His Livestock research incorporates themes from Productivity, Scenario analysis and Greenhouse gas. In the subject of general Agriculture, his work in Food systems and Livelihood is often linked to General partnership, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Philip K. Thornton combines subjects such as Natural resource, Effects of global warming, Crop yield and Yield with his study of Natural resource economics.
