Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Biodiversity, Natural resource economics and Ecosystem. His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Agriculture, Risk analysis, Land use and Habitat. His Ecosystem services research includes elements of Sustainability and Environmental planning.

His Biodiversity research is under the purview of Ecology. Stephen Polasky combines subjects such as Carbon sequestration, Food security, Extinction and Cost–benefit analysis with his study of Natural resource economics. He interconnects Land use, land-use change and forestry, Productivity, Environmental change, Public policy and Wetland in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Agricultural sustainability and intensive production practices (4720 citations)
  • Solutions for a cultivated planet (3839 citations)
  • Land Clearing and the Biofuel Carbon Debt (3096 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Natural resource economics, Biodiversity and Environmental planning. Stephen Polasky has researched Environmental resource management in several fields, including Ecosystem management, Endangered species, Habitat and Land use, Land use, land-use change and forestry. The study of Ecosystem services is intertwined with the study of Sustainability in a number of ways.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Incentive and Agriculture in addition to Natural resource economics. Stephen Polasky works in the field of Agriculture, namely Agricultural productivity. His Biodiversity study is concerned with Ecology in general.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (33.99%)
  • Ecosystem services (31.77%)
  • Natural resource economics (19.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecosystem services (31.77%)
  • Natural resource economics (19.46%)
  • Environmental resource management (33.99%)

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

Stephen Polasky mainly focuses on Ecosystem services, Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management, Biodiversity and Agriculture. A large part of his Ecosystem services studies is devoted to Natural capital. Stephen Polasky usually deals with Natural resource economics and limits it to topics linked to Climate change and Greenhouse gas and Food security.

His Environmental resource management study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Land use, Habitat, Sustainable development, Ecosystem and China. His Agriculture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Air pollution, Production, Subsidy and Agricultural economics. Stephen Polasky focuses mostly in the field of Sustainability, narrowing it down to topics relating to Anthropocene and, in certain cases, Earth system science, Emerging technologies and Biosphere.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Assessing nature's contributions to people (706 citations)
  • Natural climate solutions (572 citations)
  • Improvements in ecosystem services from investments in natural capital (514 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

Ecosystem services, Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Natural capital and Sustainable development are his primary areas of study. He works in the field of Ecosystem services, focusing on Millennium Ecosystem Assessment in particular. His research integrates issues of Threatened species, Habitat, Environmental planning, Natural resource economics and China in his study of Biodiversity.

His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecological systems theory, Risk analysis and Greenhouse gas. His work carried out in the field of Natural capital brings together such families of science as Quality, Private sector, Stakeholder, Valuation and Environmental accounting. As part of one scientific family, Stephen Polasky deals mainly with the area of Sustainability, narrowing it down to issues related to the Land use, and often Agriculture, Global change and Developing country.
