Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

John Dighton spends much of his time researching Botany, Ecology, Agronomy, Mycorrhiza and Nutrient. His Botany study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bioremediation, Phosphorus, Mycorrhizal fungi, Decomposer and Plant litter. His Plant litter research integrates issues from Pinus rigida, Litter and Pine barrens.

His Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Soil science. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomass, Nitrogen cycle and Soil fertility. His Mycorrhiza research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomass and Shoot.

His most cited work include:

  • The fungal community : its organization and role in the ecosystem (516 citations)
  • Beyond the Biomass. (266 citations)
  • Litter quality influences on decomposition, ectomycorrhizal community structure and mycorrhizal root surface acid phosphatase activity (211 citations)

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

Botany, Ecology, Agronomy, Nutrient and Pine barrens are his primary areas of study. John Dighton combines subjects such as Phosphorus and Mycorrhiza with his study of Botany. His Agronomy study also includes

  • Soil water, which have a strong connection to Biomass and Nematode,
  • Soil fertility that connect with fields like Agroforestry.

His study in Nutrient is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Betula pubescens, Thinning and Nitrogen. His Pine barrens research includes elements of Prescribed burn, Edaphic and Soil horizon. His Pinus rigida research includes themes of Species richness and Plant litter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (48.31%)
  • Ecology (29.66%)
  • Agronomy (18.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2018)?

  • Ecology (29.66%)
  • Agronomy (18.64%)
  • Pine barrens (12.71%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Agronomy, Pine barrens, Ecosystem and Soil biology. His work deals with themes such as Phyllosphere and Microbial ecology, which intersect with Ecology. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Leucothoe axillaris, Leucothoe and Nutrient.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Microorganism and Botany in addition to Ecosystem. His study of Axenic culture is a part of Botany. His study on Soil biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Soil fertility which intersects with area such as Soil classification,
  • Soil ecology, which have a strong connection to Biodiversity, Agroforestry and Soil chemistry.

Between 2009 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Fungi in Ecosystem Processes (165 citations)
  • Response of soil microbial communities and the production of plant-available nitrogen to a two-year rainfall manipulation in the New Jersey Pinelands. (77 citations)
  • Effects of a one-year rainfall manipulation on soil nematode abundances and community composition (58 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

John Dighton focuses on Ecology, Agronomy, Ecosystem, Botany and Microbial ecology. The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Soil biology, Soil water and Nitrogen cycle. John Dighton has included themes like Biomass and Abundance in his Soil water study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nutrient and Pine barrens. His Botany research incorporates themes from Contamination, Metal toxicity, Ectosymbiosis, Bioaccumulation and Mercury. His studies deal with areas such as Primary productivity, Plant growth, Fauna and Biogeochemistry as well as Microbial ecology.
