Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climate change, Ecosystem, Vegetation, Climatology and Ecology. His study in Climate change is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Terrestrial ecosystem, Physical geography and Atmospheric sciences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil carbon and Eddy covariance.

The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry. His Vegetation research incorporates themes from Greening, Plateau, Northern Hemisphere and Albedo. Shilong Piao has included themes like Growing season, Phenology, Precipitation, Biome and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index in his Climatology study.

His most cited work include:

  • A Large and Persistent Carbon Sink in the World’s Forests (3463 citations)
  • The impacts of climate change on water resources and agriculture in China (1781 citations)
  • Reduction of forest soil respiration in response to nitrogen deposition (910 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Climate change, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem and Vegetation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Growing season, Physical geography, Phenology and Precipitation in addition to Climate change. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Seasonality, Evapotranspiration, Arid, Plateau and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index.

His studies in Atmospheric sciences integrate themes in fields like Meteorology, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Temperate climate and Biome. His Ecosystem study is concerned with the field of Ecology as a whole. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Greening, Agroforestry, Boreal and Leaf area index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (76.18%)
  • Climatology (50.73%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (48.78%)

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

  • Climate change (76.18%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (48.78%)
  • Ecosystem (47.63%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Vegetation. Shilong Piao mostly deals with Global warming in his studies of Climate change. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Spatial distribution, Terrestrial ecosystem, Precipitation and Evapotranspiration.

His Ecosystem study is concerned with Ecology in general. The concepts of his Carbon cycle study are interwoven with issues in Productivity, Primary production, Ecosystem respiration, Seasonality and Disturbance. His studies deal with areas such as Greening, Leaf area index, Biome, Nutrient and Earth system science as well as Vegetation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • China and India lead in greening of the world through land-use management (404 citations)
  • Plant phenology and global climate change: Current progresses and challenges (162 citations)
  • Plant phenology and global climate change: Current progresses and challenges (162 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climate change, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Vegetation and Global warming. His work deals with themes such as Deposition, Irrigation, Nitrogen deposition, Phenology and Physical geography, which intersect with Climate change. Ecosystem is a subfield of Ecology that he tackles.

His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Photosynthesis, Eddy covariance, Temperate climate, Precipitation and Terrestrial ecosystem. His Vegetation research includes elements of Greening, Leaf area index, Biome, Earth system science and Human fertilization. Shilong Piao interconnects Temperate deciduous forest and Agronomy, Growing season in the investigation of issues within Global warming.
