Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Jonathan Gershenzon mostly deals with Botany, Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Arabidopsis thaliana and Terpene. His research combines Plant defense against herbivory and Botany. His Arabidopsis research incorporates themes from Secondary metabolism and Glucosinolate.

His Glucosinolate research includes elements of Brassicaceae, Transcription factor and Metabolic pathway. Jonathan Gershenzon works mostly in the field of Arabidopsis thaliana, limiting it down to concerns involving Jasmonate and, occasionally, Jasmonic acid. His Terpene study incorporates themes from Sesquiterpene and Myrcene.

His most cited work include:

  • BIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY OF GLUCOSINOLATES (1523 citations)
  • The function of terpene natural products in the natural world (1125 citations)
  • Recruitment of entomopathogenic nematodes by insect-damaged maize roots (957 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Botany, Biochemistry, Terpene, Herbivore and Arabidopsis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plant defense against herbivory and Host in addition to Botany. Much of his study explores Biochemistry relationship to Glucosinolate.

Jonathan Gershenzon combines subjects such as Monoterpene and Diterpene with his study of Terpene. His Herbivore study deals with Lymantria dispar intersecting with Caterpillar. His research investigates the link between Arabidopsis and topics such as Arabidopsis thaliana that cross with problems in Secondary metabolism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (47.87%)
  • Biochemistry (32.25%)
  • Terpene (15.42%)

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

  • Botany (47.87%)
  • Herbivore (14.00%)
  • Biochemistry (32.25%)

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

Jonathan Gershenzon mainly investigates Botany, Herbivore, Biochemistry, Gene and Plant defense against herbivory. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Host and Terpene. His research on Terpene often connects related topics like Terpenoid.

His study looks at the relationship between Herbivore and fields such as Insect, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Biosynthesis, ATP synthase, Cytochrome P450, Dictyostelium discoideum and MYB investigations are all subjects of Biochemistry research. His studies deal with areas such as Spodoptera littoralis, Isothiocyanate, Brassicaceae and Detoxification as well as Glucosinolate.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plant defense and herbivore counter-defense: benzoxazinoids and insect herbivores (72 citations)
  • Biosynthesis of 8-O-Methylated Benzoxazinoid Defense Compounds in Maize (69 citations)
  • Gut microbiota of the pine weevil degrades conifer diterpenes and increases insect fitness. (65 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His main research concerns Botany, Herbivore, Terpene, Glucosinolate and Biochemistry. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Plant defense against herbivory and Bacteria. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lymantria dispar, Host, Secondary metabolite and Chemical ecology.

His Terpene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Arabidopsis thaliana, Antimicrobial, Gene and Methyl salicylate. His Glucosinolate study combines topics in areas such as Spodoptera littoralis, Isothiocyanate and Detoxification. His Crucifer research extends to the thematically linked field of Biochemistry.
