Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Botany
  • Bacteria

Her primary areas of investigation include Environmental chemistry, Arsenic, Pteris vittata, Soil contamination and Botany. Her Environmental chemistry research incorporates themes from Soil water, Biochar, Mineralogy and Phosphate, Phosphorite. Her Arsenic research includes themes of Chromium and Horticulture.

Pteris vittata is a subfield of Hyperaccumulator that Lena Q. Ma explores. In her study, Mining engineering is strongly linked to Soil conditioner, which falls under the umbrella field of Soil contamination. Her Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pteris ensiformis and Speciation.

Her most cited work include:

  • A fern that hyperaccumulates arsenic (1346 citations)
  • Accumulation of Pb, Cu, and Zn in native plants growing on a contaminated Florida site (1034 citations)
  • Dairy-manure derived biochar effectively sorbs lead and atrazine. (793 citations)

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

Lena Q. Ma mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Arsenic, Pteris vittata, Soil water and Hyperaccumulator. The study incorporates disciplines such as Contamination, Soil contamination, Extraction, Bioavailability and Cadmium in addition to Environmental chemistry. Her study of Arsenate is a part of Arsenic.

Her Pteris vittata research incorporates elements of Frond, Pteris, Botany, Fern and Arsenite. As a part of the same scientific family, Lena Q. Ma mostly works in the field of Soil water, focusing on Agronomy and, on occasion, Biochar. Her Hyperaccumulator research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomass, Rhizosphere, Food science and Phosphorite.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (62.70%)
  • Arsenic (54.96%)
  • Pteris vittata (43.65%)

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

  • Environmental chemistry (62.70%)
  • Soil water (38.10%)
  • Pteris vittata (43.65%)

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

Lena Q. Ma focuses on Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Pteris vittata, Arsenic and Bioavailability. Her Environmental chemistry research includes elements of Contamination, Contaminated soils, Metal, Biomass and Cadmium. Her work on Soil test and Soil contamination as part of general Soil water research is often related to Spatial distribution, thus linking different fields of science.

Her Pteris vittata study is related to the wider topic of Hyperaccumulator. The concepts of her Hyperaccumulator study are interwoven with issues in Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and Frond, Botany. Lena Q. Ma combines subjects such as Rhizosphere and Food science with her study of Arsenic.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • PAHs in urban soils of two Florida cities: Background concentrations, distribution, and sources. (37 citations)
  • PAHs in urban soils of two Florida cities: Background concentrations, distribution, and sources. (37 citations)
  • Inhalation bioaccessibility of PAHs in PM2.5: Implications for risk assessment and toxicity prediction (29 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Bacteria

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Pteris vittata, Arsenite and Contamination. Her research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Pyrene, Fractionation, Contaminated soils, Ecosystem and Cadmium. The various areas that Lena Q. Ma examines in her Cadmium study include Soil contamination and Arsenic.

Her research integrates issues of Oxidative stress and Zinc in her study of Arsenic. Her research on Pteris vittata concerns the broader Hyperaccumulator. Her work carried out in the field of Contamination brings together such families of science as Biomass and Soil test.
