Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

His main research concerns Photosynthesis, Botany, Chloroplast, Stomatal conductance and Terpenoid. His work on Chlorophyll fluorescence as part of general Photosynthesis study is frequently connected to Isoprene synthase, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. In general Botany, his work in Monoterpene is often linked to Conductance linking many areas of study.

His research investigates the link between Chloroplast and topics such as Photochemistry that cross with problems in Transpiration, Pinene and Alpha. His Stomatal conductance study combines topics in areas such as Chlorophyll, Spinach, Lipid peroxidation, White poplar and Spinacia. His Terpenoid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oxidative stress, Reactive oxygen species, Carotenoid, Biomass and Yield.

His most cited work include:

  • Diffusive and Metabolic Limitations to Photosynthesis under Drought and Salinity in C3 Plants (925 citations)
  • Isoprene Produced by Leaves Protects the Photosynthetic Apparatus against Ozone Damage, Quenches Ozone Products, and Reduces Lipid Peroxidation of Cellular Membranes (743 citations)
  • Theoretical Considerations when Estimating the Mesophyll Conductance to CO2 Flux by Analysis of the Response of Photosynthesis to CO2 (626 citations)

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

Photosynthesis, Botany, Stomatal conductance, Terpenoid and Horticulture are his primary areas of study. His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental chemistry, Chloroplast, Carbon dioxide and Agronomy. His research integrates issues of Ozone, Atmospheric chemistry and Volatile organic compound in his study of Environmental chemistry.

He carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Botany and Isoprene synthase. Francesco Loreto has included themes like Terpene, Carotenoid and Antioxidant in his Terpenoid study. As a member of one scientific family, Francesco Loreto mostly works in the field of Horticulture, focusing on Salinity and, on occasion, Arundo donax.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosynthesis (60.76%)
  • Botany (55.21%)
  • Stomatal conductance (19.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (60.76%)
  • Botany (55.21%)
  • Terpenoid (19.44%)

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

Francesco Loreto mainly focuses on Photosynthesis, Botany, Terpenoid, Stomatal conductance and Agronomy. Francesco Loreto is studying Water-use efficiency, which is a component of Photosynthesis. His Botany research incorporates themes from Abiotic component and Phenotypic plasticity.

His work deals with themes such as Environmental chemistry, Monoterpene and Antioxidant, which intersect with Terpenoid. The various areas that he examines in his Stomatal conductance study include Carbon cycle, Stomatal density and Physiology. His research in Agronomy tackles topics such as Ecotype which are related to areas like Adaptation and Biomass.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Isoprene Responses and Functions in Plants Challenged by Environmental Pressures Associated to Climate Change. (96 citations)
  • Isoprenoids and phenylpropanoids are part of the antioxidant defense orchestrated daily by drought-stressed Platanus × acerifolia plants during Mediterranean summers (74 citations)
  • Reconciling functions and evolution of isoprene emission in higher plants (58 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Francesco Loreto mainly investigates Photosynthesis, Botany, Terpenoid, Arundo donax and Stomatal conductance. Particularly relevant to Water-use efficiency is his body of work in Photosynthesis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biomass and Abiotic component in addition to Botany.

His Terpenoid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Monoterpene, Carotenoid and Antioxidant. His studies deal with areas such as RNA-Seq and Poaceae, Agronomy as well as Arundo donax. The concepts of his Stomatal conductance study are interwoven with issues in Stress protection and Darkness.
