What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Rainforest, Climate change and Carbon cycle are his primary areas of study. His study in Biomass, Tropical climate, Ecosystem, Primary production and Carbon sink are all subfields of Ecology. His Amazon rainforest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Tropics, Carbon dioxide, Physical geography and Transect.

His research integrates issues of Old-growth forest, Soil fertility, Agronomy, Hydrology and Dry season in his study of Rainforest. His study in Climate change is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biodiversity, Climatology, Deforestation and Biosphere. His Carbon cycle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Photosynthesis, Nutrient and Atmospheric sciences.

His most cited work include:

  • FLUXNET: A New Tool to Study the Temporal and Spatial Variability of Ecosystem-Scale Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapor, and Energy Flux Densities (2698 citations)
  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Climate Change, Deforestation, and the Fate of the Amazon (1158 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Amazon rainforest, Biomass and Climate change. Rainforest, Carbon cycle, Primary production, Productivity and Biodiversity are the core of his Ecology study. Yadvinder Malhi has researched Carbon cycle in several fields, including Atmospheric sciences and Carbon sink.

His Amazon rainforest research incorporates themes from Tropical climate, Dry season and Physical geography. His work deals with themes such as Global change, Forest ecology and Basal area, which intersect with Biomass. His Climate change research incorporates elements of Climatology and Deforestation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (44.74%)
  • Ecosystem (20.70%)
  • Amazon rainforest (20.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (44.74%)
  • Ecosystem (20.70%)
  • Climate change (15.96%)

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

Yadvinder Malhi focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Climate change, Amazon rainforest and Tropics. His study of Primary production is a part of Ecosystem. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Climatology and Biosphere.

His research in Amazon rainforest focuses on subjects like Deforestation, which are connected to Agroforestry. His research in Tropics intersects with topics in Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle and Evergreen. In his research on the topic of Biomass, Rainforest, Tropical climate, Forestry and Carbon sink is strongly related with Forest ecology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 21st Century drought-related fires counteract the decline of Amazon deforestation carbon emissions (211 citations)
  • Drivers and Mechanisms of Tree Mortality in Moist Tropical Forests (152 citations)
  • Global trait–environment relationships of plant communities (143 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Climate change, Ecosystem, Tropics and Biomass. His study in Amazon rainforest, Biodiversity, Edaphic, Taxon and Vegetation is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Livelihood, Biosphere and Atmospheric sciences.

His Ecosystem research includes themes of Canopy, Logging and Evergreen. The various areas that Yadvinder Malhi examines in his Tropics study include Agroforestry, Primary production, Carbon cycle, Climate extremes and Dry season. His studies in Biomass integrate themes in fields like Diameter at breast height, Productivity, Woody plant, Tree canopy and Physical geography.
