Dr Cakmak is known as a leading scientist in plant mineral nutrition, especially in relation to zinc nutrition of crop plants, generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in nutrient-deficient plants and role of plant breeding and agronomy in biofortification (enrichment) of cereal crops with zinc.

The paper entitled "Enrichment of cereal grains with zinc: Agronomic or genetic biofortification?" published by Plant and Soil in 2008 (302: 1-17), one of the leading journals in plant and soil sciences, has received 141 citations within the past 3 years. One of his particular contributions was related to generation and impacts of reactive oxygen species in mineral nutrient deficient plants. His 3 papers on this topic published in Plant Physiology (Cakmak and Marschner, 1992, 98: 1222-1227), Physiologia Plantarum (Cakmak and Horst, 1991, 83: 463-468) and New Phytologist (Cakmak, 2000, 146: 185-205) have received 895 citations so far.

Following 10 publications are listed as the major publications of Dr Cakmak published since 2000. The publications with the numbers of 6 and 9 below are the book chapters, and the remaining papers have been published as research article in peer-reviewed journals.
