Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Stephen R. Carpenter mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Food web and Eutrophication. His is doing research in Nutrient, Zooplankton, Aquatic ecosystem, Trophic level and Trophic cascade, both of which are found in Ecology. Stephen R. Carpenter has included themes like Organic matter, Biodiversity and Dissolved organic carbon in his Ecosystem study.

His work deals with themes such as Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, Ecosystem management, Sustainability and Socio-ecological system, which intersect with Environmental resource management. His study explores the link between Food web and topics such as Food chain that cross with problems in Biomass. His work is dedicated to discovering how Eutrophication, Surface runoff are connected with Agriculture and other disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Consequences of Land Use (7368 citations)
  • NONPOINT POLLUTION OF SURFACE WATERS WITH PHOSPHORUS AND NITROGEN (4377 citations)
  • Solutions for a cultivated planet (3839 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Zooplankton and Food web. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Fishery. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trophic level, Dissolved organic carbon, Aquatic ecosystem and Habitat in addition to Ecosystem.

His studies in Environmental resource management integrate themes in fields like Ecology, Ecosystem management, Sustainability and Ecosystem services. His research in Zooplankton intersects with topics in Pelagic zone and Planktivore. The concepts of his Eutrophication study are interwoven with issues in Hydrology, Water quality and Macrophyte.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (55.65%)
  • Ecosystem (23.01%)
  • Environmental resource management (14.23%)

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

  • Ecology (55.65%)
  • Environmental resource management (14.23%)
  • Ecosystem (23.01%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem, Climate change and Sustainability. His work often combines Ecology and Warning system studies. Stephen R. Carpenter combines subjects such as Ecological systems theory, Process and Ecosystem services with his study of Environmental resource management.

When carried out as part of a general Ecosystem research project, his work on Ecosystem management and Food web is frequently linked to work in Series, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His work on Climate engineering, Geoengineering and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere as part of his general Climate change study is frequently connected to Measure, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. As a member of one scientific family, Stephen R. Carpenter mostly works in the field of Sustainability, focusing on Biosphere and, on occasion, Earth system science and Environmental ethics.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Planetary boundaries: Guiding human development on a changing planet (3752 citations)
  • Reducing Phosphorus to Curb Lake Eutrophication is a Success (314 citations)
  • Resilience indicators: prospects and limitations for early warnings of regime shifts (224 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Stephen R. Carpenter spends much of his time researching Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Sustainability and Ecosystem. Alternative stable state, Eutrophication, Regime shift, Nutrient and Water quality are among the areas of Ecology where Stephen R. Carpenter concentrates his study. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Ecological systems theory, Climate change and Sustainable development.

His research integrates issues of Biomass and Biodiversity in his study of Ecosystem services. His Sustainability study combines topics in areas such as Production, Stewardship, Biosphere, Fishing and Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. His study in Ecosystem management and Food web is carried out as part of his Ecosystem studies.
