His scientific interests lie mostly in Climate change, Environmental resource management, Land use, Ecosystem services and Ecology. His studies in Climate change integrate themes in fields like Natural resource economics, Ecosystem and Climatology. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Goods and services and Biodiversity.
His research investigates the connection between Environmental resource management and topics such as Sustainability that intersect with problems in Human development and Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. His work carried out in the field of Land use brings together such families of science as Special Report on Emissions Scenarios and Hydrology. His work on Canopy, Biome and Taiga as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Growth rate, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
His main research concerns Climate change, Environmental resource management, Land use, Environmental planning and Ecosystem. Global change is the focus of his Climate change research. His work deals with themes such as Vulnerability assessment, Ecosystem management, Sustainability and Ecosystem services, which intersect with Environmental resource management.
Land use is a component of his Land cover, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Agricultural land studies. His research in Land cover focuses on subjects like Biosphere, which are connected to Atmospheric sciences. Ecosystem is a subfield of Ecology that Rik Leemans studies.
His primary areas of study are Climate change, Environmental resource management, Vegetation, Sustainability and Political science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biodiversity, Socioeconomic status, Climatology and Precipitation in addition to Climate change. The various areas that Rik Leemans examines in his Biodiversity study include Ecosystem and Land use, land-use change and forestry.
His research in the fields of Biome overlaps with other disciplines such as Taxonomic rank. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Coral reef, Ecosystem-based management, Adaptability, Tourism and Ecosystem services. His research on Sustainability also deals with topics like
Rik Leemans mainly investigates Environmental resource management, Climate change, Sustainability, Productivity and Flood myth. His Environmental resource management research incorporates themes from Coral reef, Ecosystem-based management, Adaptability, Ecosystem services and Process. Rik Leemans combines subjects such as Biodiversity, Habitat and Biome with his study of Climate change.
His Sustainability study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Natural resource economics, Water scarcity, Greenhouse gas and Coupled model intercomparison project. The concepts of his Productivity study are interwoven with issues in Cropping, Agriculture, Land use and Agricultural economics. His research investigates the connection with Flood myth and areas like Streamflow which intersect with concerns in Water resources, Wet season, Water resource management and Climatology.
