Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Photosynthesis

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Photosynthesis, Lichen, Thallus and Water content. Otto L. Lange regularly links together related areas like Horticulture in his Botany studies. Otto L. Lange focuses mostly in the field of Horticulture, narrowing it down to topics relating to Compensation point and, in certain cases, Fagaceae.

His Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Carbon dioxide, Algae and Atmospheric sciences. The Thallus study combines topics in areas such as Productivity, Dry weight, Green algae and Pseudocyphellaria. His Transpiration study combines topics in areas such as Valerianella, Xylem, Agronomy and Prunus armeniaca.

His most cited work include:

  • Responses of stomata to changes in humidity. (376 citations)
  • Water vapor uptake and photosynthesis of lichens: performance differences in species with green and blue-green algae as phycobionts. (288 citations)
  • Stomatal responses to changes in humidity in plants growing in the desert. (264 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Botany, Photosynthesis, Lichen, Ecology and Thallus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Horticulture and Arbutus unedo. His Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Respiration, Carbon dioxide, Atmospheric sciences and Water content.

His Lichen research includes themes of Productivity, Green algae and Desiccation. His Thallus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Photosynthetically active radiation, Algae, Dry weight, Pseudocyphellaria and Rainforest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Prunus armeniaca, Agronomy, Evergreen and Stomatal conductance in addition to Transpiration.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (57.14%)
  • Photosynthesis (49.78%)
  • Lichen (33.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1995-2017)?

  • Botany (57.14%)
  • Lichen (33.77%)
  • Photosynthesis (49.78%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Lichen, Photosynthesis, Ecology and Thallus. Botany is closely attributed to Water content in his work. His work carried out in the field of Water content brings together such families of science as Foliose lichen and Horticulture.

His study in the fields of Cyanolichen, Buellia frigida and Xanthoria under the domain of Lichen overlaps with other disciplines such as Term. His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rainforest, Desiccation, Chlorophyll and Respiration. The concepts of his Thallus study are interwoven with issues in Cladonia furcata, Carbon dioxide, Trampling and Crustose.

Between 1995 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Photosynthesis of the cyanobacterial soil‐crust lichen Collema tenax from arid lands in southern Utah, USA: role of water content on light and temperature responses of CO2 exchange (165 citations)
  • A history of atmospheric CO[2] and its effects on plants, animals, and ecosystems (108 citations)
  • Photosynthesis of Lichens from Antarctica (99 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Photosynthesis

Otto L. Lange spends much of his time researching Botany, Photosynthesis, Lichen, Chlorophyll fluorescence and Photosystem II. Otto L. Lange interconnects Environmental chemistry and Water content in the investigation of issues within Botany. His Water content study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Photosynthetic capacity and Compensation point.

His research in Photosynthesis intersects with topics in Desiccation and Thallus. Otto L. Lange usually deals with Lichen and limits it to topics linked to Respiration and Acclimatization, Peltigera and Carbon fixation. His studies deal with areas such as Biophysics and Chlorophyll as well as Photosystem II.
