Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis, Botany, Biochemistry, Photorespiration and C4 photosynthesis are his primary areas of study. Gerald E. Edwards has included themes like Quantum yield, Chloroplast and Analytical chemistry in his Photosynthesis study. His Botany research includes elements of Carbon dioxide and Horticulture.

Biochemistry and Vascular bundle are commonly linked in his work. His Photorespiration research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cytosol, Intracellular, RuBisCO and Photosynthetic carbon metabolism. His work in C4 photosynthesis addresses subjects such as Dehydrogenase, which are connected to disciplines such as Pi, Biological activity and Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • New Fluorescence Parameters for the Determination of QA Redox State and Excitation Energy Fluxes. (989 citations)
  • K+ is an endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor in rat arteries (945 citations)
  • Relationship between photosystem II activity and CO2 fixation in leaves (546 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Photosynthesis, Botany, Biochemistry, Chloroplast and C4 photosynthesis. His Photosynthesis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vascular bundle and Chlorophyll. His Botany research includes themes of Anatomy and Horticulture.

Enzyme, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Pyruvate carboxylase and Protoplast are the core of his Biochemistry study. His Chloroplast research incorporates elements of Cytoplasm, Cell biology and Phosphate. His studies examine the connections between Carbon fixation and genetics, as well as such issues in Photosystem II, with regards to Quantum yield.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosynthesis (61.25%)
  • Botany (51.57%)
  • Biochemistry (44.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2019)?

  • Botany (51.57%)
  • Photosynthesis (61.25%)
  • Chloroplast (28.77%)

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

His main research concerns Botany, Photosynthesis, Chloroplast, RuBisCO and C4 photosynthesis. His research integrates issues of Suaedoideae, Suaeda and Anatomy in his study of Botany. His Photosynthesis research is within the category of Biochemistry.

The various areas that Gerald E. Edwards examines in his Chloroplast study include Electron transport chain, Acclimatization, Genus and Photosystem II. He has researched RuBisCO in several fields, including Chlorophyll, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and Cleome. His research investigates the connection between C4 photosynthesis and topics such as Photosynthetic efficiency that intersect with problems in Carbon fixation and Cell.

Between 2004 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Coordination of Leaf Photosynthesis, Transpiration, and Structural Traits in Rice and Wild Relatives (Genus Oryza) (122 citations)
  • C4 rice: a challenge for plant phenomics (102 citations)
  • Diversification of the Old World Salsoleae s.l. (Chenopodiaceae): Molecular Phylogenetic Analysis of Nuclear and Chloroplast Data Sets and a Revised Classification (102 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Photosynthesis, Botany, Chloroplast, Biochemistry and RuBisCO. His Photosynthesis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Arabidopsis thaliana and Oryza sativa. His work in Botany tackles topics such as Salsoloideae which are related to areas like Phylogenetic tree, Monophyly and Maximum parsimony.

His research in Chloroplast intersects with topics in Shoot and Photosystem II. His Biochemistry research focuses on Biophysics and how it relates to Electron transport chain, Cytochrome b6f complex, Thylakoid, Photosystem and Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching. His study connects Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and RuBisCO.
