What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Fungus

Michael J. Wingfield mostly deals with Botany, Ecology, Eucalyptus, Taxonomy and Woody plant. Michael J. Wingfield has researched Botany in several fields, including Neofusicoccum and Phylogenetic tree. The concepts of his Phylogenetic tree study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetics.

Michael J. Wingfield interconnects Mycosphaerellaceae, Mycosphaerella and Myrtaceae in the investigation of issues within Eucalyptus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Taxon, Teratosphaeria and Ophiostoma, Ophiostomatales. His Woody plant research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agroforestry and Bark.

His most cited work include:

  • Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae (502 citations)
  • The Ascomycota Tree of Life: A Phylum-wide Phylogeny Clarifies the Origin and Evolution of Fundamental Reproductive and Ecological Traits (462 citations)
  • Botryosphaeriaceae as endophytes and latent pathogens of woody plants: diversity, ecology and impact (438 citations)

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

Michael J. Wingfield mainly investigates Botany, Eucalyptus, Ecology, Taxonomy and Canker. His study in Phylogenetic tree extends to Botany with its themes. His work carried out in the field of Phylogenetic tree brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetics.

His research on Eucalyptus also deals with topics like

  • Mycosphaerella and related Teratosphaeria,
  • Internal transcribed spacer together with Ribosomal DNA. As part of the same scientific family, Michael J. Wingfield usually focuses on Ecology, concentrating on Genetic diversity and intersecting with Population genetics. His research in Taxonomy intersects with topics in Taxon, Fungi imperfecti, Mycology and Conidium.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (60.25%)
  • Eucalyptus (21.65%)
  • Ecology (20.76%)

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

  • Botany (60.25%)
  • Ecology (20.76%)
  • Eucalyptus (21.65%)

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

Botany, Ecology, Eucalyptus, Taxonomy and Genetics are his primary areas of study. Michael J. Wingfield combines subjects such as Ascomycota and Internal transcribed spacer with his study of Botany. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Agroforestry and Genetic diversity.

His Eucalyptus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Canker, Horticulture, Species diversity and Plant litter. His studies deal with areas such as Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Ophiostomatales as well as Taxonomy. The various areas that he examines in his Genetics study include Ceratocystis fimbriata and Ceratocystis.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genera of phytopathogenic fungi: GOPHY 1 (103 citations)
  • Botryosphaeria dothidea: a latent pathogen of global importance to woody plant health (77 citations)
  • Fungal Planet description sheets: 625-715 (73 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Fungus

His main research concerns Botany, Eucalyptus, Ecology, Taxonomy and Mycology. His research integrates issues of Botryosphaeriaceae, Neofusicoccum and Ascomycota in his study of Botany. His Eucalyptus research includes elements of Twig, Blight and Plant litter.

His study in Taxonomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Calonectria and Microascales, Phylogenetics, Ophiostomatales, Phylogenetic tree. His Phylogenetic tree study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Zoology, Threatened species, Species diversity and Ceratocystis. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Mycology, concentrating on Genome and frequently concerns with Grosmannia and Ploidy.
