Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Photosynthesis

His primary areas of investigation include Photosynthesis, Botany, Isoprene synthase, Chloroplast and Biochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Chlorophyll and Carbon dioxide, which intersect with Photosynthesis. Thomas D. Sharkey works mostly in the field of Carbon dioxide, limiting it down to concerns involving Electron transport chain and, occasionally, Analytical chemistry.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Light intensity and Metabolism. As part of one scientific family, Thomas D. Sharkey deals mainly with the area of Chloroplast, narrowing it down to issues related to the Assimilation, and often Glycerate kinase, Phosphate, RuBisCO activity and Plant ecology. His research in Stomatal conductance intersects with topics in Photosynthesis system, Partial pressure and Horticulture.

His most cited work include:

  • Stomatal conductance and photosynthesis (3031 citations)
  • Diffusive and Metabolic Limitations to Photosynthesis under Drought and Salinity in C3 Plants (925 citations)
  • Fitting photosynthetic carbon dioxide response curves for C3 leaves (836 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Photosynthesis, Botany, Biochemistry, Chloroplast and RuBisCO. His work carried out in the field of Photosynthesis brings together such families of science as Biophysics, Electron transport chain and Carbon dioxide. In his study, Absorbance and Photochemistry is strongly linked to Thylakoid, which falls under the umbrella field of Biophysics.

His studies in Electron transport chain integrate themes in fields like Photosystem I, Photosystem II and Chlorophyll fluorescence. His work on Stomatal conductance, Terpenoid and Phaseolus as part of general Botany research is frequently linked to Isoprene synthase, bridging the gap between disciplines. The Chloroplast study combines topics in areas such as Arabidopsis thaliana, Arabidopsis, Mutant, Photosynthetic capacity and Plant physiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosynthesis (62.45%)
  • Botany (45.35%)
  • Biochemistry (32.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (62.45%)
  • Biochemistry (32.71%)
  • Botany (45.35%)

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

Photosynthesis, Biochemistry, Botany, Chloroplast and Light-independent reactions are his primary areas of study. A large part of his Photosynthesis studies is devoted to Carbon fixation. His Botany research includes themes of Regulation of gene expression, Agronomy and Starch.

His work in Chloroplast addresses issues such as Photosynthetic capacity, which are connected to fields such as Mesophyll Cell, Crop yield, Potassium, Potassium deficiency and Brassica. In his research, Photorespiration is intimately related to Glyceraldehyde, which falls under the overarching field of Ribulose. The study incorporates disciplines such as Action spectrum, Photosystem I, ATP synthase and Atmospheric chemistry in addition to Electron transport chain.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Isoprene research – 60 years later, the biology is still enigmatic (48 citations)
  • Isoprene Acts as a Signaling Molecule in Gene Networks Important for Stress Responses and Plant Growth (32 citations)
  • Triose phosphate limitation in photosynthesis models reduces leaf photosynthesis and global terrestrial carbon storage (31 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Ecology

Thomas D. Sharkey mainly investigates Photosynthesis, Isoprene synthase, Light-independent reactions, Carbon assimilation and Climate change. His specific area of interest is Photosynthesis, where he studies Photosynthetic capacity. His Light-independent reactions research includes elements of Carbon metabolism, Flux, Substrate and Dehydrogenase.

His research investigates the connection between Flux and topics such as Glucose 6-phosphate that intersect with problems in Cytosol, Transcriptional regulation, Mutant, Transcription factor and Chloroplast membrane. His Carbon assimilation research integrates issues from Global warming, Metabolome and Environmental chemistry. Thomas D. Sharkey interconnects Carbon, Biophysics and Terrestrial ecosystem in the investigation of issues within Phosphate.
