Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Environmental chemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Ecology and Toxicity are his primary areas of study. John P. Giesy has included themes like Bioassay, Sediment, Environmental engineering and Bay in his Environmental chemistry study. His work deals with themes such as In vitro, Potency, Contamination, Luciferase and Chromatography, which intersect with Bioassay.

His studies in Sediment integrate themes in fields like Estuary, Soil water, Hydrology, Biota and Nonylphenol. He has researched Toxicity in several fields, including Cell culture, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers and Animal science. The various areas that John P. Giesy examines in his Water pollution study include Perfluorooctane, Water quality and Wastewater.

His most cited work include:

  • Toxic equivalency factors (TEFs) for PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs for humans and wildlife (2761 citations)
  • Global distribution of perfluorooctane sulfonate in wildlife. (1753 citations)
  • Ecological risk assessment of atrazine in North American surface waters. (854 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Toxicity, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Environmental chemistry study focuses on Ecotoxicology in particular. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Zoology and Animal science.

John P. Giesy interconnects Toxicology and Biochemistry in the investigation of issues within Toxicity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Bay, Hydrology, Water pollution, Dry weight and Pollution in addition to Sediment. The concepts of his Bioassay study are interwoven with issues in Aryl hydrocarbon receptor and In vitro, Potency.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (59.21%)
  • Ecology (21.42%)
  • Toxicity (21.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (59.21%)
  • Sediment (19.16%)
  • Ecology (21.42%)

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

His primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Ecology, Toxicity and Water quality. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental engineering, Pollutant, Contamination, Phosphorus and Bioassay. Many of his studies on Bioassay apply to Aryl hydrocarbon receptor as well.

As part of his studies on Sediment, John P. Giesy often connects relevant areas like Pollution. His study in Eutrophication, Zooplankton, Benthic zone and Invertebrate falls within the category of Ecology. In his research on the topic of Water quality, Ecosystem is strongly related with Aquatic ecosystem.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Concentrations of neonicotinoid insecticides in honey, pollen and honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) in central Saskatchewan, Canada. (86 citations)
  • Organophosphate Esters in Sediment of the Great Lakes (74 citations)
  • Comparison of arsenic and antimony biogeochemical behavior in water, soil and tailings from Xikuangshan, China. (74 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Ecology, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Environmental engineering, Contamination, Phosphorus, Bioassay and Pollution. The Bioassay study combines topics in areas such as Potency and Organic chemistry.

His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bay, Extraction, Pollutant, Environmental DNA and Residual oil. His studies deal with areas such as Offspring, Apoptosis and Zebrafish as well as Endocrinology. His research investigates the link between Offspring and topics such as Tris that cross with problems in Toxicity.
