  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Sustainability

His primary scientific interests are in Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Sustainability, Natural capital and Environmental economics. His Ecosystem services study deals with the bigger picture of Ecology. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Space, Economic valuation and Humanity.

His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Ecological systems theory, Ecosystem management, Ecosystem, Sustainable development and System dynamics. His work carried out in the field of Sustainability brings together such families of science as Environmental studies, Climate change, Corporate governance and Systems ecology. His Natural capital study incorporates themes from Human capital, Natural resource economics, Recreation, Total economic value and Social capital.

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Sustainability, Ecological economics and Natural capital. His Ecosystem services study is concerned with the larger field of Ecology. Robert Costanza works mostly in the field of Environmental resource management, limiting it down to topics relating to Ecosystem and, in certain cases, Wetland.

His Sustainable development research extends to Sustainability, which is thematically connected. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Ecological economics, concentrating on Environmental ethics and frequently concerns with Humanity. His Social capital research extends to the thematically linked field of Natural capital.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecosystem services (28.27%)
  • Environmental resource management (25.19%)
  • Sustainability (16.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecosystem services (28.27%)
  • Environmental resource management (25.19%)
  • Sustainable development (7.88%)

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

Robert Costanza focuses on Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Sustainable development, Sustainability and Natural resource economics. His biological study focuses on Natural capital. His Natural capital research incorporates elements of Ecological economics, Environmental economics and Capital asset.

His study in Environmental resource management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Natural resource, Indigenous and Land degradation. Robert Costanza has included themes like Corporate governance and Environmental planning in his Sustainable development study. His work investigates the relationship between Sustainability and topics such as Scenario planning that intersect with problems in Public relations.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Changes in the global value of ecosystem services (2179 citations)
  • Twenty years of ecosystem services: How far have we come and how far do we still need to go? (695 citations)
  • Development: Time to leave GDP behind (352 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Sustainability

Robert Costanza mainly focuses on Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Valuation, Sustainable development and Natural resource economics. His research in Ecosystem services intersects with topics in Agriculture and Sustainability. His research integrates issues of Environmental economics and Macroeconomics, Gross domestic product in his study of Sustainability.

His Environmental resource management research includes elements of Indigenous, Natural resource, Land use, Ecosystem and Incentive. In his work, Ecological economics, Social capital, Discipline, Pluralism and Humanity is strongly intertwined with Interdependence, which is a subfield of Valuation.
