2010 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Botany

His primary areas of study are Arsenic, Botany, Soil water, Agronomy and Soil contamination. He works mostly in the field of Arsenic, limiting it down to topics relating to Oryza sativa and, in certain cases, Poaceae, as a part of the same area of interest. His Botany study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rhizosphere, Phosphorus, Mycorrhiza and Soil microbiology.

The Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Environmental chemistry, Food contaminant and Irrigation. His studies deal with areas such as Selenium, Biofortification, Micronutrient and Biochar as well as Agronomy. His Soil contamination study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phytoremediation, Environmental engineering, Bioavailability and Environmental protection.

His most cited work include:

  • Health risks of heavy metals in contaminated soils and food crops irrigated with wastewater in Beijing, China (1322 citations)
  • Diverse and abundant antibiotic resistance genes in Chinese swine farms. (1159 citations)
  • Quantitative analyses of the abundance and composition of ammonia‐oxidizing bacteria and ammonia‐oxidizing archaea of a Chinese upland red soil under long‐term fertilization practices (766 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Arsenic, Environmental chemistry, Agronomy, Soil water and Botany. His Arsenic research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oryza sativa, Speciation and Biotransformation. He interconnects Contamination and Bioavailability in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phosphorus and Mycorrhiza. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental engineering and Ecosystem. Yong-Guan Zhu has researched Botany in several fields, including Microorganism, Rhizosphere and Bacteria.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Arsenic (20.96%)
  • Environmental chemistry (20.80%)
  • Agronomy (19.11%)

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

  • Ecology (14.33%)
  • Soil water (18.80%)
  • Ecosystem (6.93%)

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

Yong-Guan Zhu mainly investigates Ecology, Soil water, Ecosystem, Microbiome and Environmental chemistry. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Resistome, Antibiotic resistance genes and Microbial population biology. His work carried out in the field of Soil water brings together such families of science as Microcosm, Nutrient and Pollutant.

His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Soil biology, Biodiversity, Biological dispersal and Rhizosphere. The concepts of his Microbiome study are interwoven with issues in Microorganism, Phyllosphere and Botany. His research in Environmental chemistry focuses on subjects like Arsenic, which are connected to Cadmium.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antibiotic Resistomes in Plant Microbiomes. (64 citations)
  • Evidence for co-selection of antibiotic resistance genes and mobile genetic elements in metal polluted urban soils. (57 citations)
  • Understanding drivers of antibiotic resistance genes in High Arctic soil ecosystems. (50 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil water, Resistome and Arsenic. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microbiome and Antibiotic resistance. His studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Wildlife, Agronomy, Arctic and Mobile genetic elements.

His research integrates issues of Phosphorus and Biochar in his study of Agronomy. His work in Arsenic addresses issues such as Earthworm, which are connected to fields such as Arsenate, Arsenite, Microbiology, Contamination and Incidence. As a part of the same scientific family, Yong-Guan Zhu mostly works in the field of Bacteria, focusing on Environmental chemistry and, on occasion, Metagenomics.
