What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Agronomy

Stephen B. Powles mostly deals with Agronomy, Weed, Lolium rigidum, Glyphosate and Resistance. He has researched Weed in several fields, including Lolium, Agroforestry, Weed control and Gene. His Lolium rigidum study introduces a deeper knowledge of Botany.

His research in Glyphosate intersects with topics in Trifluralin, Growing season and Chromosomal translocation. His Resistance study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Biotechnology. His Pesticide resistance study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetically modified crops, Canola and Acetolactate synthase.

His most cited work include:

  • Photoinhibition of Photosynthesis Induced by Visible Light (1605 citations)
  • Evolution in Action: Plants Resistant to Herbicides (973 citations)
  • Glyphosate: a once-in-a-century herbicide. (911 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Agronomy, Weed, Lolium rigidum, Botany and Resistance. His Agronomy research focuses on Glyphosate, Weed control, Herbicide resistance, Crop and Pesticide. He has included themes like Pesticide resistance, Agriculture, Agroforestry and Horticulture in his Weed study.

His Lolium rigidum study combines topics in areas such as Germination, Cross-resistance, Trifluralin, Lolium and Acetolactate synthase. His Botany research incorporates themes from Genetics, Gene, Chromosomal translocation and Paraquat. His studies deal with areas such as Biotechnology and Competition as well as Resistance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (53.91%)
  • Weed (47.83%)
  • Lolium rigidum (42.61%)

  • Weed (47.83%)
  • Agronomy (53.91%)
  • Lolium rigidum (42.61%)

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

Stephen B. Powles spends much of his time researching Weed, Agronomy, Lolium rigidum, Resistance and Glyphosate. His work carried out in the field of Weed brings together such families of science as Genetics, Genetically modified rice, Atrazine and Chromosomal translocation. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cropping and Horticulture.

His Lolium rigidum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Trifluralin, Lolium and Acetolactate synthase. His Resistance research incorporates themes from Cross-resistance, Biotechnology, Competition and Metabolism. His work carried out in the field of Glyphosate brings together such families of science as Canola, Echinochloa, Paraquat and Fitness cost.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Metabolism-Based Herbicide Resistance and Cross-Resistance in Crop Weeds: A Threat to Herbicide Sustainability and Global Crop Production (201 citations)
  • Resistance to AHAS inhibitor herbicides: current understanding. (198 citations)
  • Evolution of a Double Amino Acid Substitution in the 5-Enolpyruvylshikimate-3-Phosphate Synthase in Eleusine indica Conferring High-Level Glyphosate Resistance (130 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Enzyme

Stephen B. Powles mostly deals with Weed, Agronomy, Glyphosate, Lolium rigidum and Resistance. His Weed research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetics and Biochemistry. Weed control, Crop, Herbicide resistance and Amaranth are subfields of Agronomy in which his conducts study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Echinochloa, Mutant and Eleusine indica. His work in Lolium rigidum addresses issues such as Lolium, which are connected to fields such as Phorate and Organophosphate. His Resistance research incorporates elements of Paraquat and Metabolism.
