What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

Robert B. Jackson mostly deals with Ecology, Soil water, Nutrient, Ecosystem and Carbon cycle. His work deals with themes such as Carbon sequestration and Nitrogen cycle, which intersect with Ecology. His Soil water study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology and Vegetation.

He combines subjects such as Phosphorus, Soil fertility, Botany and Nitrogen with his study of Nutrient. Within one scientific family, Robert B. Jackson focuses on topics pertaining to Climate change under Ecosystem, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Sink. His Carbon cycle study incorporates themes from Carbon dioxide, Global change and Biosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Global biodiversity scenarios for the year 2100. (6358 citations)
  • A Large and Persistent Carbon Sink in the World’s Forests (3463 citations)
  • The diversity and biogeography of soil bacterial communities (3185 citations)

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

Robert B. Jackson mainly focuses on Ecology, Soil water, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Atmospheric sciences. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Carbon sequestration. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hydrology and Water content in addition to Soil water.

His research integrates issues of Nutrient, Botany and Transpiration in his study of Agronomy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Climate change, Global change and Methane. His research in Climate change intersects with topics in Canopy and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (22.73%)
  • Soil water (15.72%)
  • Agronomy (14.77%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (10.80%)
  • Methane (7.95%)
  • Climate change (11.17%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Methane, Climate change, Ecosystem and Greenhouse gas. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Seasonality, Nitrous oxide, Global change and Wetland. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vegetation and Environmental resource management.

Ecosystem is a subfield of Ecology that Robert B. Jackson investigates. Robert B. Jackson has researched Greenhouse gas in several fields, including Global warming, Carbon dioxide and Radiative forcing. He interconnects Carbon sequestration and Grassland in the investigation of issues within Soil water.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Temporary reduction in daily global CO2 emissions during the COVID-19 forced confinement (441 citations)
  • Global Carbon Budget 2019 (405 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Carbon dioxide, Methane and Greenhouse gas are his primary areas of study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Carbon and Deposition is strongly linked to Biosphere. Robert B. Jackson focuses mostly in the field of Carbon, narrowing it down to matters related to Ecosystem and, in some cases, Agronomy.

Robert B. Jackson has included themes like Nitrous oxide, Forcing, Vegetation and Environmental resource management in his Climate change study. His studies deal with areas such as Phosphorus, Seasonality, Precipitation, Fossil fuel and Terrestrial ecosystem as well as Carbon dioxide. The concepts of his Methane study are interwoven with issues in Inversion and Atmospheric chemistry.
