Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Photosynthesis

Klaus Winter spends much of his time researching Botany, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Photosynthesis, Photoinhibition and Chlorophyll. His research on Botany frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Horticulture. Klaus Winter interconnects Clusia, Ecology and Carbon fixation in the investigation of issues within Crassulacean acid metabolism.

His work on Tillandsioideae and Adaptation as part of his general Ecology study is frequently connected to Pitcairnioideae and Pollination, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including δ13C and Metabolic pathway, Metabolism. The Photoinhibition study combines topics in areas such as Photochemistry, Xanthophyll and Chlorophyll fluorescence.

His most cited work include:

  • Photoinhibition and zeaxanthin formation in intact leaves : a possible role of the xanthophyll cycle in the dissipation of excess light energy. (665 citations)
  • Environmental and physiological determinants of carbon isotope discrimination in terrestrial plants (311 citations)
  • Phylogeny, adaptive radiation, and historical biogeography in Bromeliaceae: Insights from an eight-locus plastid phylogeny (307 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Photosynthesis, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Horticulture and Ecology. His studies in Botany integrate themes in fields like Biomass, Carbon dioxide and Nocturnal. In his research, Chlorophyll a is intimately related to Chlorophyll, which falls under the overarching field of Photosynthesis.

His Crassulacean acid metabolism research includes elements of Carbon fixation, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and Kalanchoe. His Horticulture study combines topics in areas such as Photosynthetic capacity, Water-use efficiency and Transpiration. His Photoinhibition study incorporates themes from Photochemistry and Xanthophyll.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (65.42%)
  • Photosynthesis (44.75%)
  • Crassulacean acid metabolism (37.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (44.75%)
  • Crassulacean acid metabolism (37.29%)
  • Botany (65.42%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Photosynthesis, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Botany, Stomatal conductance and Horticulture. The concepts of his Photosynthesis study are interwoven with issues in Ecology, Canopy, Climate change, Tree species and Respiration. The various areas that he examines in his Crassulacean acid metabolism study include Facultative, Portulaca, C4 photosynthesis, Nocturnal and Aizoaceae.

Klaus Winter interconnects Titratable acid and Isotopes of carbon in the investigation of issues within Botany. His Stomatal conductance research also works with subjects such as

  • Photosynthetic capacity together with Water-use efficiency,
  • Gene family that connect with fields like Transpiration. His research in Horticulture intersects with topics in Tropics, Chlorophyll a, Acclimatization, Photosynthetic acclimation and Evergreen.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Nitrogen and phosphorus constrain the CO2 fertilization of global plant biomass (62 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Klaus Winter mainly focuses on Photosynthesis, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Facultative, Botany and Stomatal conductance. His Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Canopy, Horticulture, Respiration and Global warming. His Canopy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Photosynthetic capacity, Nutrient, Liana and Seedling.

His work on Chlorophyll fluorescence is typically connected to Sunlight as part of general Horticulture study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research integrates issues of Evolutionary biology, Gene and Kalanchoe in his study of Crassulacean acid metabolism. His Facultative research incorporates elements of Nocturnal, Ephemeral key, Portulaca and Montiaceae.
