Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Nitrification, Botany, Archaea, Soil pH and Nitrogen cycle. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Crenarchaeota and Soil microbiology in his study of Nitrification. He works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to topics relating to Metagenomics and, in certain cases, Bacteria, Microbial ecology, Abundance and Ammonia, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Soil microbiology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Environmental chemistry. His work deals with themes such as Nitrosopumilus and Ammonia monooxygenase, which intersect with Botany. Graeme W. Nicol regularly links together related areas like Thaumarchaeota in his Nitrogen cycle studies.

His most cited work include:

  • Archaea predominate among ammonia-oxidizing prokaryotes in soils (1844 citations)
  • The influence of soil pH on the diversity, abundance and transcriptional activity of ammonia oxidizing archaea and bacteria (890 citations)
  • Growth, activity and temperature responses of ammonia-oxidizing archaea and bacteria in soil microcosms. (566 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Nitrification, Archaea, Botany and Soil microbiology. Graeme W. Nicol has researched Ecology in several fields, including Microbial ecology and Crenarchaeota. His Nitrification research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental chemistry, Microcosm, Microorganism and Ammonia.

His Archaea study incorporates themes from Phylogenetics, Nitrogen cycle and Metagenomics. His work carried out in the field of Botany brings together such families of science as Nitrosopumilus, Soil pH, Ammonia monooxygenase and Nitrosomonas europaea. Graeme W. Nicol interconnects Denitrification and Autotroph in the investigation of issues within Soil microbiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.45%)
  • Nitrification (59.68%)
  • Archaea (56.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2019)?

  • Archaea (56.45%)
  • Nitrification (59.68%)
  • Ecology (56.45%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Archaea, Nitrification, Ecology, Soil microbiology and Ammonia. His primary area of study in Archaea is in the field of Thaumarchaeota. His studies deal with areas such as Phylogenetics and Botany as well as Thaumarchaeota.

His study ties his expertise on Microorganism together with the subject of Nitrification. His Topsoil and Ecology study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Nitrososphaera. In his work, Nitrogen cycle and Soil pH is strongly intertwined with Environmental chemistry, which is a subfield of Soil microbiology.

Between 2014 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Archaea produce lower yields of N2O than bacteria during aerobic ammonia oxidation in soil (128 citations)
  • Isolation of 'Candidatus Nitrosocosmicus franklandus', a novel ureolytic soil archaeal ammonia oxidiser with tolerance to high ammonia concentration (121 citations)
  • The consequences of niche and physiological differentiation of archaeal and bacterial ammonia oxidisers for nitrous oxide emissions (102 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Graeme W. Nicol focuses on Nitrification, Soil microbiology, Environmental chemistry, Ammonia and Ammonium. His study in Soil microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Thaumarchaeota and Nitrogen cycle. His Thaumarchaeota research incorporates themes from Phylogenetics, Lineage and Botany.

Nitrogen cycle is closely attributed to Denitrification in his study. His Ammonium investigation overlaps with other disciplines such as Microcosm, Organic matter, Urea and Nitrous oxide. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Archaea.
