Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Genetics

Rana Munns mainly investigates Salinity, Botany, Agronomy, Poaceae and Soil salinity. Her study in Salinity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Photosynthesis, Ecophysiology, Hordeum vulgare, Agriculture and Horticulture. Her research integrates issues of Osmotic shock and Osmoregulation in her study of Botany.

Her Agronomy research includes elements of Halophyte, Chlorophyll and Triticeae. Rana Munns usually deals with Poaceae and limits it to topics linked to Genetic variation and Transpiration and Plant breeding. Her Shoot study incorporates themes from Xylem and Triticum turgidum.

Her most cited work include:

  • Mechanisms of salinity tolerance (6599 citations)
  • Comparative physiology of salt and water stress (4384 citations)
  • Mechanisms of salt tolerance in nonhalophytes. (3468 citations)

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

Rana Munns focuses on Salinity, Botany, Agronomy, Horticulture and Shoot. She works in the field of Salinity, namely Soil salinity. Rana Munns has researched Botany in several fields, including Gene and Locus.

Rana Munns has included themes like Agriculture, Soil water and Plant physiology in her Agronomy study. The Horticulture study combines topics in areas such as Plant nutrition and Carbohydrate. Her Shoot research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biophysics, Nutrient and Vacuole.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Salinity (61.85%)
  • Botany (47.98%)
  • Agronomy (35.84%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Salinity (61.85%)
  • Soil salinity (23.70%)
  • Botany (47.98%)

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

Rana Munns mostly deals with Salinity, Soil salinity, Botany, Agronomy and Horticulture. The study incorporates disciplines such as Photosynthesis, Stomatal conductance, Cultivar, Crop and Crop yield in addition to Salinity. She studies Shoot, a branch of Botany.

Her Shoot research includes themes of Biophysics, Xylem and Germination. Rana Munns interconnects Mediterranean climate and Nutrient in the investigation of issues within Agronomy. Her research investigates the connection between Horticulture and topics such as Chloroplast that intersect with problems in Ion homeostasis.

Between 2009 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Wheat grain yield on saline soils is improved by an ancestral Na + transporter gene (456 citations)
  • Wheat grain yield on saline soils is improved by an ancestral Na + transporter gene (456 citations)
  • Salinity tolerance of crops – what is the cost? (416 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Genetics

Salinity, Soil salinity, Botany, Ecology and Agronomy are her primary areas of study. In her research, Rana Munns performs multidisciplinary study on Salinity and Chloridometer. Her research in Soil salinity intersects with topics in Wheat grain, Osmotic shock, Horticulture, Osmosis and Salt Tolerant Plants.

Her Botany study combines topics in areas such as Carrier protein, Gene, Locus and Transporter gene. Her work deals with themes such as Shoot and Leaf blade, which intersect with Gene. Her Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agricultural land, Drainage and Stomatal conductance.
