Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Ecology, Bacteria, Environmental chemistry, Dissolved organic carbon and Biogeochemical cycle. Heterotrophic bacteria is closely connected to Bacterial growth in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ecology. His Bacteria study combines topics in areas such as Amino acid, Leucine, Biochemistry, Zoology and Diatom.

David L. Kirchman combines subjects such as Heterotroph, Ammonium, Nitrogen, Inorganic chemistry and Carbon with his study of Environmental chemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Phytoplankton, Microbial loop and Organic matter as well as Dissolved organic carbon. His studies in Biogeochemical cycle integrate themes in fields like Seawater, Deep sea, Archaea and Proteobacteria.

His most cited work include:

  • The ecology of Cytophaga-Flavobacteria in aquatic environments. (965 citations)
  • Natural Assemblages of Marine Proteobacteria and Members of the Cytophaga-Flavobacter Cluster Consuming Low- and High-Molecular-Weight Dissolved Organic Matter (869 citations)
  • Microbial Ecology of the Oceans (844 citations)

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

David L. Kirchman mostly deals with Ecology, Bacteria, Environmental chemistry, Dissolved organic carbon and Oceanography. His studies in Abundance, Biogeochemical cycle, Estuary, Community structure and Bacterioplankton are all subfields of Ecology research. His studies deal with areas such as Zoology, Biochemistry and Microbiology as well as Bacteria.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Bacterial growth, Ammonium, Nitrogen, Seawater and Carbon in addition to Environmental chemistry. His Dissolved organic carbon research focuses on Botany and how it connects with Prochlorococcus and Heterotrophic bacteria. David L. Kirchman studied Oceanography and Phytoplankton that intersect with Biomass and Plankton.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (39.09%)
  • Bacteria (27.57%)
  • Environmental chemistry (22.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (39.09%)
  • Environmental science (14.40%)
  • Environmental chemistry (22.63%)

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

Ecology, Environmental science, Environmental chemistry, Dissolved organic carbon and Bacteria are his primary areas of study. David L. Kirchman combines subjects such as Phototroph and Microbial ecology with his study of Ecology. His research integrates issues of Carbon cycle re-balancing, Nitrogen cycle, Degradation and Microbial population biology in his study of Environmental chemistry.

His research in Dissolved organic carbon intersects with topics in Estuary, Ecosystem and Botany. His study explores the link between Botany and topics such as Heterotrophic bacteria that cross with problems in Amino acid. His work deals with themes such as Pyrosequencing, Gene, Food science and Microbiology, which intersect with Bacteria.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bacterial diversity, community structure and potential growth rates along an estuarine salinity gradient. (246 citations)
  • Growth Rates of Microbes in the Oceans (104 citations)
  • Mechanisms of Microbial Carbon Sequestration in the Ocean - Future Research Directions (93 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Enzyme

David L. Kirchman mainly focuses on Ecology, Dissolved organic carbon, Biogeochemical cycle, Estuary and Anoxygenic photosynthesis. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Pyrosequencing and Microbial ecology, Bacteria. His Bacteria study combines topics in areas such as Biomass, Phytoplankton and Food web.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Total organic carbon and Botany. His work carried out in the field of Estuary brings together such families of science as Salinity, Marine bacteriophage, Hydrology and Environmental chemistry, Aquatic ecosystem. His studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Carbon sequestration, Microbial population biology, Particulate organic carbon and Biological pump.
