Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Thijs L. Pons focuses on Botany, Photosynthesis, Respiration, Ecology and Agronomy. His Botany study typically links adjacent topics like Horticulture. His Photosynthesis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Canopy and Lysimachia vulgaris.

His research integrates issues of Acclimatization and Darkness in his study of Respiration. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biologist and Plant physiology. His Plant physiology research focuses on subjects like Ecophysiology, which are linked to Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Plant Physiological Ecology (3255 citations)
  • Causes and consequences of variation in growth rate and productivity of higher plants (361 citations)
  • Seed responses to light. (263 citations)

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

Botany, Photosynthesis, Horticulture, Photosynthetic capacity and Ecology are his primary areas of study. Many of his research projects under Botany are closely connected to Cytokinin with Cytokinin, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. The Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Acclimatization, Agronomy and Respiration.

His work carried out in the field of Horticulture brings together such families of science as Shade tolerance and Darkness. Thijs L. Pons interconnects Ecophysiology and Plant physiology in the investigation of issues within Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Ecology, Plant traits and Reproduction, which intersect with Ecophysiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (55.68%)
  • Photosynthesis (45.45%)
  • Horticulture (23.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (45.45%)
  • Ecology (19.32%)
  • Botany (55.68%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Photosynthesis, Ecology, Botany, Photosynthetic capacity and Agronomy. His Ecology research integrates issues from Ecophysiology and Nitrogen cycle. His work on Respiration as part of general Botany research is frequently linked to Irradiance, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Photosynthetic capacity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Canopy, Chlorophyll and Acclimatization. His studies deal with areas such as Rainforest and Ecosystem as well as Leaching. Thijs L. Pons combines subjects such as RuBisCO and Photosynthetic acclimation with his study of Plant physiology.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • No growth stimulation of tropical trees by 150 years of CO2 fertilization but water-use efficiency increased (255 citations)
  • The art of growing plants for experimental purposes: a practical guide for the plant biologist (129 citations)
  • Oxygen isotopes in tree rings are a good proxy for Amazon precipitation and El Niño-Southern Oscillation variability (111 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Thijs L. Pons mostly deals with Photosynthesis, Shade tolerance, Photosynthetic capacity, Agronomy and Botany. His Shade tolerance research incorporates elements of Daily light integral, Plant anatomy and Acclimatization. His Photosynthetic capacity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Chlorophyll, Productivity, Juvenile, Chlorophyll a and Tropical rainforest.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Agroforestry, Carbon dioxide, Vegetation and Ecosystem in addition to Agronomy. His work on Horticulture expands to the thematically related Botany. His research in Horticulture intersects with topics in Dry matter, Herbaceous plant and Evergreen.
