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

Raffaele Lafortezza spends much of his time researching Environmental planning, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Ecology and Green infrastructure. His research integrates issues of Urbanization, Sustainability, Urban planning and Recreation in his study of Environmental planning. His Environmental resource management study also includes

  • Forest management and related Forest ecology,
  • Landscape ecology which intersects with area such as Sustainable development.

In Ecosystem services, he works on issues like Ecosystem management, which are connected to Ecosystem health. His Green infrastructure research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Urban forestry and Psychological resilience. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spatial ecology and Species richness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental planning (29.95%)
  • Environmental resource management (28.34%)
  • Ecosystem services (32.62%)

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

  • Physical geography (18.72%)
  • Ecosystem services (32.62%)
  • Green infrastructure (22.46%)

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

Physical geography, Ecosystem services, Green infrastructure, Context and Psychological resilience are his primary areas of study. Raffaele Lafortezza has included themes like Mediterranean climate and Ecosystem in his Physical geography study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Remote sensing application, Sustainable management, Urban forestry, Regional science and Remote sensing in addition to Ecosystem services.

His Urban forestry research includes themes of Energy balance, Surface energy balance, Forest ecology and Tree canopy. He usually deals with Green infrastructure and limits it to topics linked to Environmental economics and Efficient energy use. His Psychological resilience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sustainability and Adaptive capacity.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Urban forests, ecosystem services, green infrastructure and nature-based solutions: Nexus or evolving metaphors? (77 citations)
  • Urban forests, ecosystem services, green infrastructure and nature-based solutions: Nexus or evolving metaphors? (77 citations)
  • Transitional path to the adoption of nature-based solutions (29 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Raffaele Lafortezza mostly deals with Ecosystem services, Green infrastructure, Psychological resilience, Sustainability and Urban forestry. The Ecosystem services study combines topics in areas such as Regional science and Sustainable management. His Sustainable management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of DPSIR, Environmental planning, Urban heat island, Climate resilience and Urbanization.

His research in Green infrastructure intersects with topics in Public land and Adaptive capacity. His study in Psychological resilience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental economics, Economic system and Sustainable development. His Urban forestry research includes elements of Remote sensing and Urban ecosystem.
