2015 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Photosynthesis
  • Bacteria

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Photosynthesis, Ecology, Coral and Chlorophyll a. His research integrates issues of Environmental chemistry and Biophysics in his study of Botany. His Photosynthesis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Seagrass, Electron transport chain, Chlorophyll and Animal science.

His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Symbiodinium. His Coral research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zooxanthellae and Dinoflagellate. His Chlorophyll a research incorporates elements of Phototroph, Zostera capricorni and Halophila ovalis.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid light curves: A powerful tool to assess photosynthetic activity (714 citations)
  • Coral bleaching: the role of the host (344 citations)
  • Australian vegetated coastal ecosystems as global hotspots for climate change mitigation (339 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Botany, Photosynthesis, Ecology, Seagrass and Coral. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental chemistry and Halophila ovalis. His Photosynthesis research includes themes of Algae, Biophysics, Chlorophyll and Chlorophyll a.

His work in Ecosystem, Habitat, Biomass, Carbon sink and Benthic zone is related to Ecology. Peter J. Ralph combines subjects such as Oceanography and Dredging with his study of Seagrass. His research in Coral intersects with topics in Coral reef, Zooxanthellae and Symbiodinium.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (37.54%)
  • Photosynthesis (31.86%)
  • Ecology (27.13%)

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

  • Ecology (27.13%)
  • Zostera muelleri (9.46%)
  • Seagrass (20.82%)

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

Peter J. Ralph mainly focuses on Ecology, Zostera muelleri, Seagrass, Biomass and Phaeodactylum tricornutum. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Genetic diversity. His Seagrass research includes elements of Microbiome, Carbon sequestration and Carbon stock.

His studies in Biomass integrate themes in fields like Dry weight, Agronomy, Algae, Sewage treatment and Nutrient. To a larger extent, Peter J. Ralph studies Botany with the aim of understanding Diatom. His Botany study combines topics in areas such as Extrachromosomal DNA, Salinity and Heterologous.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Australian vegetated coastal ecosystems as global hotspots for climate change mitigation (339 citations)
  • Microalgal bioremediation of emerging contaminants - Opportunities and challenges. (51 citations)
  • Emerging Technologies in Algal Biotechnology: Toward the Establishment of a Sustainable, Algae-Based Bioeconomy. (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Photosynthesis

Peter J. Ralph focuses on Seagrass, Ecology, Zostera muelleri, Nutrient and Phaeodactylum tricornutum. Seagrass is the subject of his research, which falls under Ecosystem. Ecology is closely attributed to Photosynthetic capacity in his research.

His Zostera muelleri study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glutathione peroxidase, Catalase, Antioxidant, APX and Reactive oxygen species. Peter J. Ralph interconnects Nitrification, Agronomy, Resource recovery, Denitrification and Pulp and paper industry in the investigation of issues within Nutrient. His Phaeodactylum tricornutum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Insect repellent, Heterologous, Extrachromosomal DNA, Marine diatom and Geraniol.
