Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Fungus

David Read mainly investigates Botany, Mycorrhiza, Ecology, Mycelium and Ericoid mycorrhiza. The various areas that David Read examines in his Botany study include Suillus bovinus, Agronomy, Ectomycorrhiza, Symbiosis and Nutrient. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Rhizosphere, Phosphorus and Decomposer.

His Mycorrhiza study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endophyte, Photosynthesis, Arbuscular mycorrhiza and Glomus. His Mycelium study also includes

  • Hypha and related Fungus, Woody plant and Seedling,
  • Mycorrhizal network which connect with Root system. The Ericoid mycorrhiza study combines topics in areas such as Calluna, Resistance and Ericaceae.

His most cited work include:

  • Plant diversity and productivity experiments in european grasslands (1572 citations)
  • Large-scale forest girdling shows that current photosynthesis drives soil respiration (1541 citations)
  • Mycorrhizas in ecosystems (1287 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Mycorrhiza, Ecology, Symbiosis and Mycelium. The concepts of his Botany study are interwoven with issues in Nutrient and Ectomycorrhiza. His research investigates the connection between Nutrient and topics such as Agronomy that intersect with problems in Rhizosphere.

His studies in Mycorrhiza integrate themes in fields like Arbuscular mycorrhiza and Shoot. His research in Symbiosis intersects with topics in Plant community and Colonization. David Read has researched Mycelium in several fields, including Seedling, Root system and Hypha.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (75.91%)
  • Mycorrhiza (45.91%)
  • Ecology (26.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2019)?

  • Botany (75.91%)
  • Ecology (26.82%)
  • Symbiosis (21.36%)

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

David Read mainly focuses on Botany, Ecology, Symbiosis, Mycorrhiza and Ecosystem. His Botany research includes elements of Myco-heterotrophy and Nutrient. The Ecology study which covers Nitrogen cycle that intersects with Peat, Moss and Nutrient cycle.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mutualism, Plant community, Colonization and Phylogenetic tree in addition to Symbiosis. David Read interconnects Orchidaceae, Shoot, Carex flacca, Arbuscular mycorrhiza and Obligate in the investigation of issues within Mycorrhiza. His Ecosystem research focuses on subjects like Biodiversity, which are linked to Species diversity, Monoculture and Glomus.

Between 2003 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Networks of power and influence: the role of mycorrhizal mycelium in controlling plant communities and agroecosystem functioning (463 citations)
  • Towards a more plant physiological perspective on soil ecology. (420 citations)
  • ECOSYSTEM EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY MANIPULATIONS IN EUROPEAN GRASSLANDS (411 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Fungus

Botany, Ecology, Mycorrhiza, Ecosystem and Myco-heterotrophy are his primary areas of study. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Symbiosis and Ectomycorrhiza. Ecology and Agroforestry are commonly linked in his work.

His work deals with themes such as Range and Carex flacca, which intersect with Mycorrhiza. David Read combines subjects such as Biodiversity, Ericoid mycorrhiza and Mycorrhizal fungi with his study of Ecosystem. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ceratobasidiaceae and Repens.
