Agricultural and Biological Sciences Top 5 Trending Papers for December 2018

During December we analysed millions of academic papers in Agricultural and Biological Sciences to discover the top 5 articles being read by Mendeley users in the Agricultural and Biological Sciences discipline. We believe these papers will have an impact on the influential academic papers of tomorrow.

Mendeley Trending considers the number of people reading a specific paper, the change in number of new readers within a timeframe and how recently the paper was published.

Some of these papers can be viewed on the Mendeley Web Catalog page, and to access others you may need to click on ‘Get full text’ to view it on the publisher’s site.

  • Topics in this list: Phenotyping, Warming and Biodiversity, Pd-1, Habitat Fragmentation, Temperature Extremes

A) Translating High-Throughput Phenotyping into Genetic Gain (135 Readers)

Inability to efficiently implement high-throughput field phenotyping is increasingly perceived as a key component that limits genetic gain in breeding programs…

Araus J. et al. in Trends in Plant Science (2018)


B) Changes in temperature alter the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (92 Readers)

Empirical evidence for the response of ecosystem functioning to the combined effects of warming and biodiversity loss is scarce. We show that warming…

García F. et al. in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2018)


C) Pan-tumor genomic biomarkers for PD-1 checkpoint blockade–based immunotherapy (257 Readers)

Programmed cell death protein–1 (PD-1) and programmed cell death ligand–1 (PD-L1) checkpoint blockade immunotherapy elicits durable antitumor effects…

Cristescu R. et al. in Science (2018)


D) Habitat fragmentation and its lasting impact on Earth’s ecosystems (1879 Readers)

We conducted an analysis of global forest cover to reveal that 70% of remaining forest is within 1 km of the forest’s edge, subject to the degrading effects…

Haddad N. et al. in Science Advances (2015)


E) Temperature extremes: Effect on plant growth and development (809 Readers)

Temperature is a primary factor affecting the rate of plant development. Warmer temperatures expected with climate change and the potential for more extreme temperature events will impact plant productivity…

Jerry L. H. et al. in Weather and Climate Extremes (2015)
