Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Soil water

His primary areas of study are Soil water, Agronomy, Soil structure, Soil science and Geotechnical engineering. His studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Hordeum vulgare, Sorptivity, Ecosystem, Water content and Rhizosphere. His Agronomy research includes themes of Agroforestry, Agriculture, Soil biodiversity, Biogas and Bulk soil.

His studies deal with areas such as Resource, Intensive farming, Ecosystem services, Intercropping and Subsistence agriculture as well as Soil biodiversity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil classification, Soil biology and Soil fertility. His Soil science research includes elements of Environmental chemistry and Infiltration.

His most cited work include:

  • Root elongation, water stress, and mechanical impedance: a review of limiting stresses and beneficial root tip traits (519 citations)
  • Improving intercropping: a synthesis of research in agronomy, plant physiology and ecology. (363 citations)
  • Improving intercropping: a synthesis of research in agronomy, plant physiology and ecology. (363 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Soil water, Agronomy, Soil science, Soil structure and Geotechnical engineering. His studies examine the connections between Soil water and genetics, as well as such issues in Sorptivity, with regards to Wetting. Paul D. Hallett combines subjects such as No-till farming and Soil fertility with his study of Agronomy.

His Soil science research focuses on subjects like Infiltration, which are linked to Infiltrometer. His Soil structure study also includes

  • Rhizosphere which intersects with area such as Botany, Root hair and Nutrient,
  • Soil biology together with Environmental chemistry. His Geotechnical engineering research incorporates themes from Fracture mechanics, Root system, Reinforcement and Soil mechanics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (39.81%)
  • Agronomy (25.93%)
  • Soil science (26.39%)

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

  • Soil water (39.81%)
  • Agronomy (25.93%)
  • Environmental chemistry (8.80%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Soil water, Agronomy, Environmental chemistry, Soil science and Soil structure. His Soil water study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subtropics, Mucilage and Exudate. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Organic matter, Loam, Total organic carbon and Nitrate.

His studies in Loam integrate themes in fields like Rhizosphere, Bulk soil, Root hair and Hordeum vulgare. His work on Soil texture and Red soil as part of general Soil science research is frequently linked to Macropore and Water flow, bridging the gap between disciplines. His study in Soil structure is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Leaching, Soil properties, Radicle, Seedling and Paddy field.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Accumulation of nitrate and dissolved organic nitrogen at depth in a red soil Critical Zone (17 citations)
  • Imaging microstructure of the barley rhizosphere: particle packing and root hair influences (17 citations)
  • Root moisture content influence on root tensile tests of herbaceous plants (14 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Soil structure, Soil water, Loam, Rhizosphere and Leaching. The concepts of his Soil structure study are interwoven with issues in Agronomy, Crop rotation, Mineralogy, No-till farming and Vertisol. Paul D. Hallett performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Agronomy and Macropore via his papers.

His work on Soil contamination is typically connected to Water flow as part of general Soil water study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Loam research includes themes of Porosity, Exudate, Water retention, Soil test and Mucilage. His work in Rhizosphere tackles topics such as Root hair which are related to areas like Soil horizon, Bulk soil, Analytical chemistry, Hordeum vulgare and Compaction.
