Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

Terry Sunderland spends much of his time researching Agroforestry, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Rainforest and Food security. Terry Sunderland interconnects Tropical forest, Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in the investigation of issues within Agroforestry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Natural resource and Corporate governance.

The concepts of his Rainforest study are interwoven with issues in Tropical climate, Amazonian, Amazon rainforest and Vegetation. His study in Food security is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Natural resource economics and Land use. His research integrates issues of Forestry and Tropics in his study of Biomass.

His most cited work include:

  • Increasing carbon storage in intact African tropical forests (746 citations)
  • Increasing carbon storage in intact African tropical forests (746 citations)
  • Ten principles for a landscape approach to reconciling agriculture, conservation, and other competing land uses (628 citations)

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

Agroforestry, Food security, Livelihood, Agriculture and Environmental planning are his primary areas of study. His research in Agroforestry intersects with topics in Biodiversity, Deforestation, Sustainability and Ecosystem services. His Ecosystem services study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Agricultural productivity and Forest ecology.

His Food security research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Natural resource economics, Diet quality and Land use. Within one scientific family, Terry Sunderland focuses on topics pertaining to Environmental resource management under Environmental planning, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Land management and Land-use planning. His Tropical climate research incorporates elements of Carbon sequestration, Rainforest, Biomass and Carbon sink.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agroforestry (53.87%)
  • Food security (28.17%)
  • Livelihood (27.46%)

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

  • Agroforestry (53.87%)
  • Food security (28.17%)
  • Agriculture (30.28%)

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

Terry Sunderland focuses on Agroforestry, Food security, Agriculture, Ecosystem services and Livelihood. His work often combines Agroforestry and Food processing studies. His work focuses on many connections between Food security and other disciplines, such as Natural resource economics, that overlap with his field of interest in Deforestation, Land use and Agricultural productivity.

His Ecosystem services research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Livestock, Soil fertility, Land management and Environmental planning. His Livelihood research also works with subjects such as

  • Household income that intertwine with fields like Land use, land-use change and forestry,
  • Developing country which intersects with area such as Satellite imagery, Canopy, Participatory rural appraisal, Forest dynamics and Diet quality,
  • Forest ecology most often made with reference to Subsistence agriculture,
  • Socioeconomics which is related to area like Poverty. His Forest ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rainforest, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide and Understory.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Asynchronous carbon sink saturation in African and Amazonian tropical forests (84 citations)
  • Asynchronous carbon sink saturation in African and Amazonian tropical forests (84 citations)
  • Agricultural intensification, dietary diversity, and markets in the global food security narrative (46 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Forest ecology, Ecosystem services, Livelihood, Agroforestry and Tropical climate. His work is dedicated to discovering how Forest ecology, Soil fertility are connected with Amazon rainforest and other disciplines. Terry Sunderland combines subjects such as Developing country, Agriculture, Forest dynamics and Satellite imagery with his study of Ecosystem services.

His Agriculture research integrates issues from Household income and Canopy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Carbon sequestration, Carbon cycle and Carbon sink in addition to Tropical climate. His Carbon sequestration research includes elements of Rainforest, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide and Understory.
