Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Mariana C. Rufino mainly focuses on Agriculture, Livestock, Agroforestry, Food security and Land use. Mariana C. Rufino combines subjects such as Nutrient and Agronomy with her study of Agriculture. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomass, Crop and Manure.

The concepts of her Food security study are interwoven with issues in Natural resource economics and Livelihood. The Natural resource economics study which covers Climate change that intersects with Greenhouse gas, Carbon dioxide equivalent, Marginal abatement cost and Per capita. Her research integrates issues of Resource and Surface runoff in her study of Land use.

Her most cited work include:

  • Exploring global changes in nitrogen and phosphorus cycles in agriculture induced by livestock production over the 1900–2050 period (502 citations)
  • Biomass use, production, feed efficiencies, and greenhouse gas emissions from global livestock systems (497 citations)
  • Communicating complexity: Integrated assessment of trade-offs concerning soil fertility management within African farming systems to support innovation and development (295 citations)

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

Mariana C. Rufino mainly investigates Agriculture, Agroforestry, Land use, Climate change and Greenhouse gas. Her studies deal with areas such as Livestock, Natural resource economics and Agricultural economics as well as Agriculture. Her Livestock research includes elements of Animal science, Nutrient, Manure and Agricultural science.

Her research investigates the connection with Climate change and areas like Environmental resource management which intersect with concerns in Environmental planning and Resource. Her research investigates the link between Greenhouse gas and topics such as Land use, land-use change and forestry that cross with problems in Grazing. Her Food security study incorporates themes from Climate change mitigation, Agroecology and Subsistence agriculture.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Agriculture (53.57%)
  • Agroforestry (23.47%)
  • Land use (23.98%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Agriculture (53.57%)
  • Greenhouse gas (22.96%)
  • STREAMS (4.59%)

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

Mariana C. Rufino spends much of her time researching Agriculture, Greenhouse gas, STREAMS, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Grazing. Her study on Land management is often connected to High frequency sampling as part of broader study in Agriculture. Her Greenhouse gas research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Productivity, Natural resource economics and Agricultural science.

Her work in Land use, land-use change and forestry tackles topics such as Agroforestry which are related to areas like Forest landscape, Deforestation, Soil respiration and Tropics. Her work in Grazing addresses issues such as Soil carbon, which are connected to fields such as Arid and Carbon dioxide. Her Agronomy research incorporates themes from Terrestrial ecosystem, Nutrient cycle, Nutrient, Eutrophication and Soil management.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Advances in sensing ammonia from agricultural sources (8 citations)
  • Intensification of dairy production can increase the GHG mitigation potential of the land use sector in East Africa. (3 citations)
  • Intensification of dairy production can increase the GHG mitigation potential of the land use sector in East Africa. (3 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agriculture, STREAMS, Channel bank, Biogeochemical cycle and Agricultural land. Mariana C. Rufino has included themes like Forage, Grazing and Greenhouse gas in her Agriculture study. Her work carried out in the field of STREAMS brings together such families of science as Water quality and Cycling.

Channel bank is frequently linked to Land management in her study.
