Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His main research concerns Leptosphaeria maculans, Agronomy, Botany, Phoma and Ecology. His study on Leptosphaeria maculans is covered under Brassica. The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Plant disease resistance and Climate change.

His Botany research integrates issues from Inoculation, Horticulture and Pathogen. Phoma is closely attributed to Leaf spot in his work. His work on Food security as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Ecological niche, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Epidemiology and management of Leptosphaeria maculans (phoma stem canker) on oilseed rape in Australia, Canada and Europe (342 citations)
  • World-wide importance of phoma stem canker (Leptosphaeria maculans and L. biglobosa) on oilseed rape (Brassica napus) (314 citations)
  • The Role of Rain in Dispersal of Pathogen Inoculum (236 citations)

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

Bruce D.L. Fitt spends much of his time researching Horticulture, Agronomy, Botany, Leptosphaeria maculans and Leaf spot. His Agronomy research includes themes of Plant disease resistance and Eyespot. His Botany study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Pathogenicity.

Bruce D.L. Fitt has included themes like Ascospore, Canker, Blackleg, Phoma and Leptosphaeria in his Leptosphaeria maculans study. Bruce D.L. Fitt studies Leaf spot, focusing on Pyrenopeziza brassicae in particular. In his study, Ecology is strongly linked to Biological dispersal, which falls under the umbrella field of Spore.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Horticulture (39.67%)
  • Agronomy (40.58%)
  • Botany (31.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Leptosphaeria maculans (24.82%)
  • Agronomy (40.58%)
  • Botany (31.52%)

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

His primary areas of study are Leptosphaeria maculans, Agronomy, Botany, Horticulture and Brassica. He interconnects Cultivar, Canker, Blackleg, Phoma and Leptosphaeria in the investigation of issues within Leptosphaeria maculans. His studies deal with areas such as Plant disease resistance, Climate change and Food security as well as Agronomy.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Pathogenicity, Polymerase chain reaction and Internal transcribed spacer in addition to Botany. His research related to Phoma stem canker and Leaf spot might be considered part of Horticulture. His study in Brassica is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both R gene and Resistance.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Quantitative resistance increases the durability of qualitative resistance to Leptosphaeria maculans in Brassica napus (212 citations)
  • Pathogenesis, parasitism and mutualism in the trophic space of microbe–plant interactions (201 citations)
  • Effector-triggered defence against apoplastic fungal pathogens (108 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Agronomy, Leptosphaeria maculans, Climate change, Food security and Botany are his primary areas of study. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Plant disease resistance and Invasive species. His Leptosphaeria maculans research incorporates elements of Ascospore, Canker, Blackleg and Phoma.

His study looks at the intersection of Canker and topics like Leaf spot with Colonization. His Climate change research includes elements of Yield, Agriculture and Fusarium ear blight. His work in Botany addresses subjects such as Internal transcribed spacer, which are connected to disciplines such as Genetic structure and Amplified fragment length polymorphism.
