Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Agronomy, Pinus radiata, Agroforestry, Soil organic matter and Ecology are his primary areas of study. Agustín Merino combines subjects such as Soil water, Soil fertility, Biomass, Site index and Quercus robur with his study of Agronomy. His Soil water research incorporates themes from Afforestation, Forage, Pasture and Animal science.

His Pinus radiata research incorporates elements of Nutrient, Forestry, Pinus pinaster and Temperate climate. Agustín Merino interconnects Carbon sequestration, Soil pH and Eucalyptus globulus in the investigation of issues within Agroforestry. As a part of the same scientific family, Agustín Merino mostly works in the field of Soil organic matter, focusing on Soil management and, on occasion, Soil structure.

His most cited work include:

  • Responses of soil organic matter and greenhouse gas fluxes to soil management and land use changes in a humid temperate region of southern Europe (153 citations)
  • Temporal variations and distribution of carbon stocks in aboveground biomass of radiata pine and maritime pine pure stands under different silvicultural alternatives (119 citations)
  • Nutrient exports under different harvesting regimes in fast-growing forest plantations in southern Europe (111 citations)

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

Agustín Merino focuses on Soil water, Agronomy, Soil organic matter, Organic matter and Environmental chemistry. His work in Soil water tackles topics such as Pinus radiata which are related to areas like Afforestation and Silviculture. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Nutrient and Humus.

His research on Soil organic matter also deals with topics like

  • Agroforestry that connect with fields like Carbon sequestration and Temperate climate,
  • Surface runoff which connect with Mulch. His research integrates issues of Forest floor, Boreal and Topsoil in his study of Organic matter. His study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecosystem and Mineralogy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (45.71%)
  • Agronomy (37.14%)
  • Soil organic matter (27.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Soil water (45.71%)
  • Environmental chemistry (21.90%)
  • Soil organic matter (27.62%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Soil organic matter, Agronomy and Organic matter. The various areas that he examines in his Soil water study include Soil conservation, Forestry, Biochar and Global change. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biomass, Steppe and Mediterranean ecosystem in addition to Environmental chemistry.

His Soil organic matter research includes elements of Plough, Conventional tillage, Eucalypt forest, Crop rotation and Carbon sink. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Forest floor, Forest ecology, Soil fertility and Vertisol. His Organic matter research integrates issues from Soil science, Soil stabilization, Soil retrogression and degradation, Ecosystem and Litter.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chemical, physical and morphological properties of biochars produced from agricultural residues: Implications for their use as soil amendment. (20 citations)
  • Severe wildfire hinders renewal of soil P pools by thermal mineralization of organic P in forest soil: Analysis by sequential extraction and 31P NMR spectroscopy (16 citations)
  • Inferring changes in soil organic matter in post-wildfire soil burn severity levels in a temperate climate. (15 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Agustín Merino mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Charcoal, Ecosystem and Forest ecology. His studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Chronosequence, Soil test, Carbon sequestration, Phaeozem and Biomass. Soil water and Steppe are commonly linked in his work.

His work deals with themes such as Nutrient cycle, Agronomy and Mineralization, which intersect with Forest ecology. His Agronomy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil fertility and Plant litter. Soil organic matter is a primary field of his research addressed under Soil science.
