What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Botany, Photosynthesis, Ecology, Photosynthetic capacity and Dry weight are his primary areas of study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Botany, Lamina is strongly linked to Horticulture. His Photosynthesis research includes themes of Chloroplast and Acclimatization.

His work on Specific leaf area expands to the thematically related Ecology. Ülo Niinemets interconnects Niche, Agronomy, Native plant, Invasive species and Carbon dioxide in the investigation of issues within Photosynthetic capacity. His Dry weight research focuses on Nutrient and how it connects with Soil water.

His most cited work include:

  • The worldwide leaf economics spectrum (4498 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)
  • Causes and consequences of variation in leaf mass per area (LMA): a meta-analysis. (1415 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Botany, Photosynthesis, Ecology, Horticulture and Canopy. Botany is represented through his Dry weight, Photosynthetic capacity, Acclimatization, Evergreen and Chlorophyll research. His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chloroplast, Carbon dioxide and Terpenoid.

All of his Ecology and Ecosystem, Climate change, Vegetation and Global change investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. In Horticulture, Ülo Niinemets works on issues like Biomass, which are connected to Leaf size. His study in the field of Shade tolerance also crosses realms of Irradiance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (65.27%)
  • Photosynthesis (60.73%)
  • Ecology (26.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Photosynthesis (60.73%)
  • Horticulture (27.27%)
  • Ecology (26.18%)

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

Ülo Niinemets mainly focuses on Photosynthesis, Horticulture, Ecology, Stomatal conductance and Botany. His study in the fields of Photosynthetic capacity under the domain of Photosynthesis overlaps with other disciplines such as Heat stress. His Photosynthetic capacity research incorporates themes from Agronomy and RuBisCO.

In the subject of general Horticulture, his work in Dry weight and Cultivar is often linked to Scaling and Brevibacterium, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Stomatal conductance study incorporates themes from Terpene, Achillea, Green leaf volatiles, Methyl jasmonate and Photosystem II. Ülo Niinemets works mostly in the field of Botany, limiting it down to concerns involving Chloroplast and, occasionally, Cell wall.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • A meta-analysis of plant responses to light intensity for 70 traits ranging from molecules to whole plant performance. (83 citations)
  • A meta-analysis of plant responses to light intensity for 70 traits ranging from molecules to whole plant performance. (83 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Photosynthesis

Ülo Niinemets mostly deals with Photosynthesis, Botany, Agronomy, Horticulture and Photosynthetic capacity. His work on RuBisCO, Specific leaf area, Water-use efficiency and Leaf mass as part of general Photosynthesis study is frequently linked to Light intensity, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Humidity and Fight-or-flight response in addition to Botany.

His Agronomy research integrates issues from Dominance and Rhizosphere. The Horticulture study combines topics in areas such as Range, Photosynthesis system, Allometry and Stomatal conductance. His Photosynthetic capacity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Plant ecology, Acclimatization, Competition and Interspecific competition.
