Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Photosynthesis
  • Gene
  • Botany

Peter Horton focuses on Photosystem II, Photosynthesis, Chlorophyll fluorescence, Photochemistry and Quenching. Peter Horton has researched Photosystem II in several fields, including Thylakoid and Biophysics. His work carried out in the field of Photosynthesis brings together such families of science as Canopy and Chlorophyll.

Peter Horton is interested in Non-photochemical quenching, which is a branch of Chlorophyll fluorescence. His work deals with themes such as Fluorescence spectroscopy, Xanthophyll and Zeaxanthin, which intersect with Photochemistry. His research integrates issues of Plastoquinone and Analytical chemistry in his study of Quenching.

His most cited work include:

  • REGULATION OF LIGHT HARVESTING IN GREEN PLANTS (1532 citations)
  • Identification of a mechanism of photoprotective energy dissipation in higher plants (675 citations)
  • Molecular basis of photoprotection and control of photosynthetic light-harvesting (489 citations)

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

Peter Horton mainly focuses on Photosystem II, Photosynthesis, Photochemistry, Chlorophyll fluorescence and Chloroplast. Peter Horton has included themes like Thylakoid and Biophysics in his Photosystem II study. His research on Photosynthesis concerns the broader Botany.

His Photochemistry study combines topics in areas such as P700, Xanthophyll, DCMU and Analytical chemistry. The Non-photochemical quenching research Peter Horton does as part of his general Chlorophyll fluorescence study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Light intensity and Oxygen evolution, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Chloroplast study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Biochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosystem II (43.36%)
  • Photosynthesis (39.16%)
  • Photochemistry (38.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (39.16%)
  • Photosystem II (43.36%)
  • Thylakoid (25.87%)

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

Photosynthesis, Photosystem II, Thylakoid, Biophysics and Photochemistry are his primary areas of study. His Photosynthesis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Acclimatization and Chlorophyll. His Photosystem II study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Quenching, Chloroplast and Chlorophyll fluorescence.

His research investigates the connection with Thylakoid and areas like Light-harvesting complex which intersect with concerns in Circular dichroism. Peter Horton interconnects Non-photochemical quenching, Membrane and Arabidopsis, Mutant in the investigation of issues within Biophysics. His study in Photochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chemical physics, Photoprotection and Single Molecule Spectroscopy.

Between 2005 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of a mechanism of photoprotective energy dissipation in higher plants (675 citations)
  • Agriculture and the new challenges for photosynthesis research. (250 citations)
  • Lack of the Light-Harvesting Complex CP24 Affects the Structure and Function of the Grana Membranes of Higher Plant Chloroplasts (195 citations)

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

  • Photosynthesis
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Photosystem II, Thylakoid, Photosynthesis, Biophysics and Photochemistry. His Photosystem II research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chemical physics, Fluorescence intermittency and Chlorophyll fluorescence. His Thylakoid research includes themes of Photoprotection and Zeaxanthin.

His study with Photosynthesis involves better knowledge in Botany. His research integrates issues of Arabidopsis thaliana, Membrane, Biochemistry and Arabidopsis in his study of Biophysics. As a part of the same scientific family, Peter Horton mostly works in the field of Photochemistry, focusing on Quenching and, on occasion, Photosynthetic acclimation.
