Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Ecology, Hypolith, Arid, Desert climate and Biodiversity. Stephen B. Pointing studies Ecology, namely Ecosystem. Stephen B. Pointing focuses mostly in the field of Hypolith, narrowing it down to matters related to Chroococcidiopsis and, in some cases, Actinobacteria, Nostocales, Gemmatimonadetes, Chloroflexi and Carbon cycle.

The concepts of his Arid study are interwoven with issues in Photosynthesis, Niche, Total organic carbon, Soil water and Cyanobacteria. His work is dedicated to discovering how Desert climate, Biological dispersal are connected with Biogeography, Spatial ecology, Phylogenetics and Landscape ecology and other disciplines. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Symbiosis, Marine fungi, Decomposer, Pantropical and Marine habitats.

His most cited work include:

  • Feasibility of bioremediation by white-rot fungi. (722 citations)
  • A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes (376 citations)
  • Microbial colonization and controls in dryland systems (320 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Botany, Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Arid. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Microbial population biology, Microbial ecology and Hypolith. Stephen B. Pointing interconnects Taxon and Soil water in the investigation of issues within Microbial ecology.

His study looks at the relationship between Hypolith and topics such as Actinobacteria, which overlap with Firmicutes. His studies deal with areas such as Cyanobacteria, Chroococcales and Proteobacteria as well as Botany. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Species richness, Biological dispersal, Climate change and Community structure.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (81.01%)
  • Botany (28.48%)
  • Biodiversity (24.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (81.01%)
  • Microbiome (11.39%)
  • Ecosystem (22.15%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Microbiome, Ecosystem, Biodiversity and Climate change. His Ecology research includes themes of Acidobacteria and Hypolith. Genetics is closely connected to Botany in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Acidobacteria.

In Ecosystem, Stephen B. Pointing works on issues like Abiotic component, which are connected to Ecosystem services and Food web. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Climate change, narrowing it down to issues related to the Species richness, and often Aerosol and Asian Dust. His work in Lichen covers topics such as Colonisation which are related to areas like Cyanobacteria.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Endolithic microbial diversity in sandstone and granite from the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica (37 citations)
  • Endolithic microbial diversity in sandstone and granite from the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica (37 citations)
  • Endolithic microbial diversity in sandstone and granite from the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Stephen B. Pointing spends much of his time researching Ecology, Cyanobacteria, Actinobacteria, Biodiversity and Climate change. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Acidobacteria and Hypolith. The Cyanobacteria study combines topics in areas such as Lichen, Colonisation and Algae.

His Actinobacteria research focuses on subjects like Firmicutes, which are linked to Arid and Abundance. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microbial diversity and Soil microbiology. His studies in Climate change integrate themes in fields like Nestedness, Habitat, Ecosystem, Biome and Biological dispersal.
