Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Salinity, Botany, Horticulture and Cultivar. His specific area of interest is Agronomy, where he studies Shoot. His Salinity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Abiotic component, Germination and Crop.

His Botany study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Food science, Linoleic acid and Osmoprotectant. His Horticulture research integrates issues from Proline, Catalase, Superoxide dismutase, Antioxidant and Sodium. His research integrates issues of Salicylic acid, Seed treatment, Saline, Spermidine and Drought tolerance in his study of Cultivar.

His most cited work include:

  • Roles of glycine betaine and proline in improving plant abiotic stress resistance (2657 citations)
  • Heat tolerance in plants: An overview (1914 citations)
  • Potential biochemical indicators of salinity tolerance in plants (1413 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Horticulture, Botany, Shoot and Salinity. His Agronomy research incorporates elements of Photosynthesis, Stomatal conductance and Nutrient. His Stomatal conductance study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Water-use efficiency and Transpiration.

His work deals with themes such as Proline and Sodium, which intersect with Horticulture. His Botany research focuses on subjects like Antioxidant, which are linked to Food science. His primary area of study in Salinity is in the field of Soil salinity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (32.71%)
  • Horticulture (22.60%)
  • Botany (18.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Horticulture (22.60%)
  • Antioxidant (7.32%)
  • Proline (10.17%)

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

Muhammad Ashraf focuses on Horticulture, Antioxidant, Proline, Food science and Mechanics. His study in Horticulture is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Photosynthesis and Salinity. His work focuses on many connections between Antioxidant and other disciplines, such as Pepper, that overlap with his field of interest in Nitric oxide.

His work in Proline addresses issues such as Catalase, which are connected to fields such as Peroxidase. The Food science study combines topics in areas such as Malondialdehyde, Superoxide dismutase, Ascorbate glutathione cycle, Glutathione and Cadmium. Shoot is frequently linked to Plant physiology in his study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Role of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Plant Growth Regulation: Implications in Abiotic Stress Tolerance. (126 citations)
  • Synthesis and applications of nano-TiO 2 : a review (83 citations)
  • Microbial Proteases Applications. (80 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Antioxidant, Proline, Food science, Horticulture and Shoot. His Food science study incorporates themes from Malondialdehyde, Superoxide dismutase, Salicylic acid, Stomatal conductance and Cadmium. He has researched Horticulture in several fields, including Photosynthesis, Water-use efficiency, DNS root zone and Abscisic acid.

His studies examine the connections between Osmoprotectant and genetics, as well as such issues in Ammonium compounds, with regards to Botany. His research in Abiotic stress focuses on subjects like Composition, which are connected to Salinity. His Crop research is classified as research in Agronomy.
