Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Bacterioplankton, Oceanography, Archaea and Dissolved organic carbon. He has researched Ecology in several fields, including Deep sea, Crenarchaeota and Bacteria. The various areas that Gerhard J. Herndl examines in his Oceanography study include Phytoplankton, Total organic carbon, Biosphere, Surface water and Mediterranean sea.

His work on Ammonia monooxygenase and Nitrosopumilus as part of general Archaea study is frequently linked to Terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism and Hydrostatic pressure, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Dissolved organic carbon research includes elements of Carbon cycle and Water column. His work deals with themes such as Seawater and Organic matter, which intersect with Environmental chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Microbial diversity in the deep sea and the underexplored “rare biosphere” (2807 citations)
  • Archaeal nitrification in the ocean (886 citations)
  • Microbial production of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter: long-term carbon storage in the global ocean. (744 citations)

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

Gerhard J. Herndl spends much of his time researching Ecology, Environmental chemistry, Dissolved organic carbon, Oceanography and Water column. The Bacterioplankton, Phytoplankton and Mesopelagic zone research he does as part of his general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Environmental science, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His study looks at the intersection of Environmental chemistry and topics like Seawater with Bacteria.

His Dissolved organic carbon research incorporates themes from Organic matter, Total organic carbon, Bacterial growth, Carbon cycle and Heterotroph. His Oceanography research includes themes of Biogeochemical cycle and Mediterranean sea. His research investigates the connection between Water column and topics such as Bathyal zone that intersect with problems in Water mass.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (52.25%)
  • Environmental chemistry (35.11%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (31.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Environmental science (25.84%)
  • Environmental chemistry (35.11%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (31.46%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental science, Environmental chemistry, Dissolved organic carbon, Ecology and Archaea. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Ammonia monooxygenase, Nitrification, Water column, Seawater and Heterotroph. His Water column research incorporates elements of Phytoplankton and Thaumarchaeota.

His research investigates the connection between Dissolved organic carbon and topics such as Organic matter that intersect with issues in Total organic carbon, Photic zone, Microorganism and Enzyme. His studies deal with areas such as Microbial population biology and Metagenomics as well as Ecology. Gerhard J. Herndl has included themes like Microbial ecology, Marine bacteriophage and Nitrogen cycle in his Archaea study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dissolved organic carbon leaching from plastics stimulates microbial activity in the ocean. (105 citations)
  • Dissolved organic carbon leaching from plastics stimulates microbial activity in the ocean. (105 citations)
  • Organic matter processing by microbial communities throughout the Atlantic water column as revealed by metaproteomics (55 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Archaea, Dissolved organic carbon, Nitrosopumilus and Heterotroph. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Seawater, Organic matter and Nitrification. His Archaea research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zoology, Marinobacter and Nitrite.

He has researched Dissolved organic carbon in several fields, including Carbon cycle, Water column and Microbial population biology. As a part of the same scientific family, Gerhard J. Herndl mostly works in the field of Heterotroph, focusing on Plankton and, on occasion, Amino acid, Nitrogen cycle and Biochemistry. Nutrient is a subfield of Ecology that he tackles.
