Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Richard C. Leegood mainly focuses on Photosynthesis, Biochemistry, Photorespiration, Botany and RuBisCO. Richard C. Leegood studies C4 photosynthesis which is a part of Photosynthesis. His studies in Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Glutamine synthetase and Metabolism are all subfields of Biochemistry research.

The Photorespiration study combines topics in areas such as Photoinhibition, Carbon fixation, Pyruvate carboxylase and Hordeum vulgare. His research integrates issues of Plastid envelope, Ecology, Endosymbiosis, Pyrenoid and Embryophyte in his study of Botany. His study focuses on the intersection of RuBisCO and fields such as Nicotiana tabacum with connections in the field of Chlorophyll a, Storage protein and Ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate.

His most cited work include:

  • Photorespiration: metabolic pathways and their role in stress protection (584 citations)
  • Photosynthesis : physiology and metabolism (342 citations)
  • The effect of water stress on photosynthetic carbon metabolism in four species grown under field conditions (299 citations)

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

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Photosynthesis, Botany, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and Photorespiration. His Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chloroplast, Spinach and Hordeum vulgare. In his study, Assimilation is strongly linked to Carbon dioxide, which falls under the umbrella field of Botany.

His Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase research incorporates elements of Carboxy-lyases, Crassulacean acid metabolism, Gluconeogenesis, Pyruvate carboxylase and Alanine. His Photorespiration research integrates issues from Glyoxylate cycle and Peroxisome. His RuBisCO research includes elements of Glutamine synthetase, Oxygenase and Wild type.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (62.82%)
  • Photosynthesis (49.36%)
  • Botany (37.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2018)?

  • Botany (37.82%)
  • Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (30.13%)
  • Biochemistry (62.82%)

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

His primary areas of study are Botany, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, Biochemistry, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and Photosynthesis. His RuBisCO and Vascular bundle study in the realm of Botany connects with subjects such as Thalassiosira pseudonana and Brachypodium distachyon. His RuBisCO research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Photorespiration and Pyruvate carboxylase.

Specifically, his work in Biochemistry is concerned with the study of Gene. The various areas that Richard C. Leegood examines in his Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase study include Glutamine synthetase and Phosphorylation. The Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Diatom, Ecology and Chloroplast.

Between 2006 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • C3 and C4 pathways of photosynthetic carbon assimilation in marine diatoms are under genetic, not environmental, control. (145 citations)
  • Roles of the bundle sheath cells in leaves of C3 plants (105 citations)
  • Carbon acquisition by diatoms (96 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Photosynthesis, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase and Botany. His work deals with themes such as Turgor pressure and Cell biology, which intersect with Biochemistry. His specific area of interest is Photosynthesis, where he studies C4 photosynthesis.

His studies in Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase integrate themes in fields like Glutamine synthetase, Asparagine, Cotyledon and Meristem. Richard C. Leegood combines subjects such as Pyrenoid and Plastid with his study of Botany. His RuBisCO study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Photorespiration, Carbon fixation and Photosynthetic efficiency.
