Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Agriculture

His primary scientific interests are in Arsenic, Botany, Arsenate, Agronomy and Oryza sativa. Andrew A. Meharg has researched Arsenic in several fields, including Environmental chemistry, Speciation, Soil water and Poaceae. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rhizosphere, Pteris cretica, Mycorrhiza and Cadmium.

His work carried out in the field of Arsenate brings together such families of science as Phytochelatin, Phosphorus, Biochemistry, Phosphate and Holcus lanatus. His research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Biofortification and Selenium. His research in Oryza sativa focuses on subjects like Irrigation, which are connected to Water pollution.

His most cited work include:

  • Arsenic uptake and metabolism in arsenic resistant and nonresistant plant species (935 citations)
  • Arsenic uptake and metabolism in plants. (762 citations)
  • Arsenic contamination of Bangladesh paddy field soils: implications for rice contribution to arsenic consumption. (752 citations)

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

Andrew A. Meharg mainly focuses on Arsenic, Environmental chemistry, Botany, Arsenate and Soil water. His Arsenic research incorporates themes from Soil contamination, Oryza sativa and Agronomy. His studies in Soil contamination integrate themes in fields like Lumbricus rubellus and Arsenic contamination of groundwater.

His studies deal with areas such as Ecology, Contamination, Organic matter, Bioavailability and Cadmium as well as Environmental chemistry. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Botany, concentrating on Rhizosphere and intersecting with Lolium perenne. As a part of the same scientific study, Andrew A. Meharg usually deals with the Arsenate, concentrating on Phosphate and frequently concerns with Phosphorus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Arsenic (45.15%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.53%)
  • Botany (20.92%)

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

  • Arsenic (45.15%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.53%)
  • Inorganic arsenic (8.16%)

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

Arsenic, Environmental chemistry, Inorganic arsenic, Soil water and Biogeochemical cycle are his primary areas of study. His specific area of interest is Arsenic, where he studies Arsenate. His study in Arsenate is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Escherichia coli, Oryza sativa, Pteris and Arsenite.

The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Manure and Paddy soils. He combines subjects such as Organic matter, Phytolith, Biogeochemistry and Groundwater with his study of Soil water. His Biogeochemical cycle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Urbanization, Sustainability, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Arsenic speciation dynamics in paddy rice soil-water environment: sources, physico-chemical, and biological factors - A review. (93 citations)
  • Inorganic arsenic in rice-based products for infants and young children (93 citations)
  • Linking Genes to Microbial Biogeochemical Cycling: Lessons from Arsenic (92 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Arsenic, Biogeochemical cycle, Environmental chemistry, Oryza and Soil water. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hydrology and Food science, Food contaminant. Within one scientific family, Andrew A. Meharg focuses on topics pertaining to Cooking Practices under Food contaminant, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Oryza sativa.

He interconnects Ecology, Contamination and Carbon cycle in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil Pollutants, Potassium, Clay minerals and Organic matter in addition to Oryza. His Soil water study incorporates themes from Volatilisation, Selenium, Deposition and Biogeochemistry.
