Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Yosef Steinberger spends much of his time researching Agronomy, Ecology, Ecosystem, Biomass and Soil water. Yosef Steinberger interconnects Soil organic matter and Soil food web in the investigation of issues within Agronomy. His study in Ecology focuses on Soil biology, Arid, Soil test, Abiotic component and Plant litter.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ecosystem, Desert climate is strongly linked to Organic matter. Yosef Steinberger has included themes like Microbial population biology, Botany and Soil horizon in his Biomass study. His Soil water study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trophic level and Respiration.

His most cited work include:

  • A proposed mechanism for the formation of ‘Fertile Islands’ in the desert ecosystem (332 citations)
  • Biomass yield and changes in chemical composition of sweet sorghum cultivars grown for biofuel. (219 citations)
  • The failure of nitrogen and lignin control of decomposition in a North American desert. (115 citations)

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

Yosef Steinberger mainly investigates Ecology, Agronomy, Ecosystem, Soil water and Botany. He combines subjects such as Soil organic matter, Soil test and Water content with his study of Agronomy. His work in Ecosystem addresses issues such as Trophic level, which are connected to fields such as Diversity index and Relative species abundance.

In his work, Dry season is strongly intertwined with Sand dune stabilization, which is a subfield of Soil water. His Botany research incorporates elements of Desert climate and Atriplex halimus. His work in Biomass addresses subjects such as Microbial population biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Microbial ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (50.42%)
  • Agronomy (37.08%)
  • Ecosystem (25.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (50.42%)
  • Ecosystem (25.42%)
  • Botany (19.58%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Agronomy and Soil water. His studies deal with areas such as Plant ecology, Plant community, Plant cover and Community structure as well as Ecosystem. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Raw material and Species diversity.

His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Biomass, Biofuel, Corn stover and Jerusalem artichoke. The Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Transect and Pollution. His Arid study combines topics in areas such as Soil biology, Mediterranean climate and Straw.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil health assessment: A critical review of current methodologies and a proposed new approach. (45 citations)
  • Field crop residue estimate and availability for biofuel production in China (36 citations)
  • Structure–Function Relations of Strigolactone Analogs: Activity as Plant Hormones and Plant Interactions (33 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Soil water. As part of his studies on Ecology, Yosef Steinberger often connects relevant areas like Water content. In Botany, he works on issues like Mediterranean climate, which are connected to Thallus, Caulerpa, Common species and Litter.

His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Trophic level and Grassland. His research integrates issues of Biomass and Biofuel in his study of Agronomy. His work deals with themes such as Environmental chemistry, Transect and Pollution, which intersect with Soil water.
