Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Enzyme

Cyanobacteria, Botany, Microcystin, Glutathione and Biochemistry are his primary areas of study. His Oscillatoria and Oscillatoria willei study in the realm of Cyanobacteria interacts with subjects such as Hot spring. Stephan Pflugmacher combines subjects such as Rotifer and Brachionus calyciflorus with his study of Botany.

His Microcystin research integrates issues from Anatoxin-a, Toxin, Phytoplankton and Ecotoxicology. Stephan Pflugmacher interconnects Microsome and Toxicity, Toxicokinetics, Metabolism in the investigation of issues within Glutathione. His Catalase study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Peroxidase, Reactive oxygen species and Superoxide dismutase.

His most cited work include:

  • Contribution of hot spring cyanobacteria to the mysterious deaths of Lesser Flamingos at Lake Bogoria, Kenya (230 citations)
  • Promotion of oxidative stress in the aquatic macrophyte Ceratophyllum demersum during biotransformation of the cyanobacterial toxin microcystin-LR. (197 citations)
  • Possible allelopathic effects of cyanotoxins, with reference to microcystin-LR, in aquatic ecosystems. (194 citations)

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

Stephan Pflugmacher mainly investigates Botany, Cyanobacteria, Glutathione, Biochemistry and Microcystin. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Macrophyte and Glutathione reductase. His Cyanobacteria research includes themes of Environmental chemistry, Toxin, Microbiology and Phytoplankton.

His study in Glutathione is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peroxidase and Oxidative stress, Superoxide dismutase, Catalase. In his study, Incubation is strongly linked to Toxicity, which falls under the umbrella field of Biochemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anatoxin-a and Lesser flamingo.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (36.36%)
  • Cyanobacteria (27.27%)
  • Glutathione (25.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Microcystin (19.32%)
  • Botany (36.36%)
  • Endocrinology (4.55%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microcystin, Botany, Endocrinology, Cyanobacteria and Microcystis. In his works, Stephan Pflugmacher undertakes multidisciplinary study on Microcystin and Nile tilapia. His Botany research incorporates themes from Oxidative stress, Antioxidant, Nodularin and Glutathione reductase.

His work carried out in the field of Cyanobacteria brings together such families of science as Environmental chemistry, Toxin, Algal bloom and Surface water. His work deals with themes such as Glutathione and Dose–response relationship, which intersect with Catalase. His work in Biochemistry addresses subjects such as Bioaccumulation, which are connected to disciplines such as Dreissena and Superoxide dismutase.

Between 2008 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • The β-receptor blocker metoprolol alters detoxification processes in the non-target organism Dreissena polymorpha. (39 citations)
  • Molecular effects and bioaccumulation of levonorgestrel in the non-target organism Dreissena polymorpha (33 citations)
  • The Synthetic Gestagen Levonorgestrel Impairs Metamorphosis in Xenopus laevis by Disruption of the Thyroid System (31 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Dreissena, Glutathione, Superoxide dismutase, Pituitary gland and Endocrinology. His Dreissena research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oxidative stress, Catalase, Botany, Dose–response relationship and Bioaccumulation. His Glutathione research includes elements of Bioconcentration and Pharmacology.

His Superoxide dismutase study contributes to a more complete understanding of Biochemistry. His studies in Pituitary gland integrate themes in fields like Prolactin, Thyroid and Metamorphosis. Stephan Pflugmacher studies Endocrinology, focusing on Thyroid-stimulating hormone in particular.
