2018 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Photosynthesis, Carbon dioxide, Crop and Ecosystem. Andrew D. B. Leakey specializes in Agronomy, namely Crop yield. The Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Canopy and Growing season.
Andrew D. B. Leakey has researched Carbon dioxide in several fields, including Primary production, Acclimatization, Respiration and Water content. His Crop research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phytic acid, Botany, Agricultural productivity and Animal science. Ecology covers Andrew D. B. Leakey research in Ecosystem.
His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Photosynthesis, Stomatal conductance, Carbon dioxide and Botany. His work is dedicated to discovering how Agronomy, Transpiration are connected with Free-air concentration enrichment and other disciplines. His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Canopy, Acclimatization and Horticulture.
His work deals with themes such as Photosynthetic acclimation, Carbon cycle, Water content and C4 photosynthesis, which intersect with Stomatal conductance. His Carbon dioxide research incorporates elements of Sucrose, Environmental protection, Primary production, Water use and Photosystem II. His Botany study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Nutrient and Animal science.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Sorghum, Water-use efficiency, Photosynthesis and Stomatal conductance. His research brings together the fields of Pollutant and Agronomy. Andrew D. B. Leakey has included themes like Biomass and Biological system in his Sorghum study.
Transpiration, Andropogoneae, Miscanthus and Maladaptation is closely connected to Canopy in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Water-use efficiency. Much of his study explores Photosynthesis relationship to Natural variation. As part of his studies on Stomatal conductance, Andrew D. B. Leakey frequently links adjacent subjects like Machine learning.
His primary areas of study are Genetic variation, Photosynthesis, Sorghum, Hybrid and Apoplast. His research integrates issues of Mutation, Phenotype, Genetic architecture and Nonsynonymous substitution in his study of Genetic variation. His research in Photosynthesis intersects with topics in Biomass, Water use, Canopy and Drought tolerance.
His Sorghum research integrates issues from Statistics, Bayesian network, Dynamic Bayesian network, Bayesian probability and Indirect selection. His Hybrid research is included under the broader classification of Agronomy.
