Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Agriculture, Land use, Land cover, Ecology and Natural resource economics are his primary areas of study. His primary area of study in Agriculture is in the field of Food security. His Land use research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Primary production, Ecosystem, Biodiversity and Biosphere.

His Land cover research focuses on Plant cover and how it connects with Range, Pasture, Forestry and Spatial distribution. His work carried out in the field of Natural resource economics brings together such families of science as Sustainability, Extreme weather, Extreme Cold and Crop production. His Sustainability study incorporates themes from Natural resource and Food systems.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Consequences of Land Use (7368 citations)
  • Solutions for a cultivated planet (3839 citations)
  • Changes in Atmospheric Constituents and in Radiative Forcing (3610 citations)

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

Navin Ramankutty mainly focuses on Agriculture, Land use, Climate change, Land cover and Natural resource economics. His Agriculture research incorporates themes from Agroforestry and Sustainability. His work deals with themes such as Global change, Deforestation and Greenhouse gas, which intersect with Land use.

His Climate change research includes themes of Crop yield, Climatology and Ecosystem. Navin Ramankutty usually deals with Land cover and limits it to topics linked to Vegetation and Primary production. In his works, Navin Ramankutty conducts interdisciplinary research on Natural resource economics and Business.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agriculture (39.90%)
  • Land use (27.46%)
  • Climate change (23.83%)

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

  • Agriculture (39.90%)
  • Business (11.40%)
  • Natural resource economics (18.13%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agriculture, Business, Natural resource economics, Food security and Food systems. He has included themes like Climate change, Sustainability, Per capita and Total factor productivity growth in his Agriculture study. The various areas that Navin Ramankutty examines in his Climate change study include Agricultural productivity and Helianthus annuus.

In his study, he carries out multidisciplinary Natural resource economics and Consumption research. His Food security study which covers Agricultural economics that intersects with Agricultural development and Yield. Navin Ramankutty combines subjects such as Spatial ecology and Livelihood with his study of Food systems.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trends in Global Agricultural Land Use: Implications for Environmental Health and Food Security (184 citations)
  • How much of the world's food do smallholders produce? (85 citations)
  • The challenge of feeding the world while conserving half the planet (45 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Navin Ramankutty spends much of his time researching Agriculture, Food security, Business, Natural resource economics and Food systems. His Agriculture study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Agroforestry and Crop. His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biodiversity, Conservation biology, Landscape conservation and Pasture.

His Food security research includes elements of Livestock and Sustainability. His studies deal with areas such as Cost–benefit analysis, Water scarcity, Animal welfare and Sustainable development as well as Natural resource economics. Navin Ramankutty interconnects Climate change, Crop production, Population growth, Environmental degradation and Per capita in the investigation of issues within Food systems.
