Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Carlos L. Ballaré focuses on Botany, Ecology, Shade avoidance, Phytochrome and Arabidopsis. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Datura ferox, Arabidopsis thaliana, Horticulture and Cell biology. His Shade avoidance research integrates issues from Agriculture, Cryptochrome and Agronomy, Crop.

Carlos L. Ballaré brings together Phytochrome and Plant defense against herbivory to produce work in his papers. While the research belongs to areas of Arabidopsis, Carlos L. Ballaré spends his time largely on the problem of Auxin, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Storage organ, Auxin homeostasis and Darkness. His Jasmonate study incorporates themes from Jasmonic acid and Plant Immunity.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid synthesis of auxin via a new tryptophan-dependent pathway is required for shade avoidance in plants. (765 citations)
  • Far-Red Radiation Reflected from Adjacent Leaves: An Early Signal of Competition in Plant Canopies (544 citations)
  • Terrestrial ecosystems, increased solar ultraviolet radiation and interactions with other climatic change factors (487 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Phytochrome, Arabidopsis, Ecology and Ozone depletion. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Competition and Horticulture. In Arabidopsis, Carlos L. Ballaré works on issues like Cell biology, which are connected to UVR8.

His work deals with themes such as Climate change and Ecosystem, which intersect with Ozone depletion. His research in Jasmonate tackles topics such as Jasmonic acid which are related to areas like Insect. His Canopy research incorporates themes from Plant ecology and Agronomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (58.74%)
  • Phytochrome (34.97%)
  • Arabidopsis (20.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Botany (58.74%)
  • Jasmonate (20.28%)
  • Phytochrome (34.97%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Jasmonate, Phytochrome, Arabidopsis and Ecology. His work on Canopy as part of general Botany research is frequently linked to Far-red, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Jasmonate research incorporates elements of Plant Immunity, Shade avoidance, Jasmonic acid, Cell biology and Plant defense against herbivory.

Carlos L. Ballaré interconnects UVR8, Arabidopsis thaliana, Mutation, Downregulation and upregulation and Auxin in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bioassay, Methyl jasmonate, Herbivore and Trichome. He has included themes like Organic matter, Climate change and Ozone depletion in his Ecosystem study.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Light regulation of plant defense. (276 citations)
  • Solar Ultraviolet Radiation in a Changing Climate (190 citations)
  • The shade‐avoidance syndrome: multiple signals and ecological consequences (171 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Carlos L. Ballaré mainly investigates Jasmonate, Botany, Ecology, Plant defense against herbivory and Phytochrome. His Jasmonate research focuses on subjects like Plant Immunity, which are linked to Jasmonic acid. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Botany and Far-red through his works.

His Ecology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Shade avoidance. His Plant defense against herbivory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Plant disease resistance, Cultivar, Agronomy and Isoflavonoid. The concepts of his Competition study are interwoven with issues in Ecology, Herbivore, Natural enemies, Plant community and Methyl jasmonate.
