Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Genus

Samson Mukaratirwa focuses on Veterinary medicine, Ecology, Trichinella, Feces and Snail. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cysticercosis, Taenia solium, Fasciola gigantica, Fasciolosis and Grazing. His research in Taenia solium intersects with topics in Public health, Helminthiasis, Schistosoma and Socioeconomics.

In general Ecology study, his work on Cannibalism, Livestock and Trichinella britovi often relates to the realm of Phylogeography, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The Trichinella study combines topics in areas such as Crocodile, Crocodylus and Crocodylidae. His Snail research incorporates themes from Environmental niche modelling and Fasciola.

His most cited work include:

  • The emergence of Taenia solium cysticercosis in Eastern and Southern Africa as a serious agricultural problem and public health risk. (187 citations)
  • Effects of Acacia nilotica and Acacia karoo diets on Haemonchus contortus infection in goats. (114 citations)
  • Trichinella zimbabwensis n.sp. (Nematoda), a new non-encapsulated species from crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus) in Zimbabwe also infecting mammals (86 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Veterinary medicine, Ecology, Zoology, Helminths and Environmental health. As a member of one scientific family, Samson Mukaratirwa mostly works in the field of Veterinary medicine, focusing on Cysticercosis and, on occasion, Socioeconomics, Public health and Zoonosis. His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Epidemiology and Bulinus globosus.

The various areas that Samson Mukaratirwa examines in his Zoology study include Abundance and Habitat. His Helminths research incorporates elements of Prevalence and Nematode. Samson Mukaratirwa has researched Environmental health in several fields, including Sanitation, Malaria and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (30.05%)
  • Ecology (15.30%)
  • Zoology (16.94%)

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

  • Zoology (16.94%)
  • One Health (6.01%)
  • Veterinary medicine (30.05%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, One Health, Veterinary medicine, Environmental health and Fasciola hepatica. His work investigates the relationship between Zoology and topics such as Genetic diversity that intersect with problems in Animal ecology. Samson Mukaratirwa works mostly in the field of One Health, limiting it down to concerns involving Transmission and, occasionally, Echinococcosis, Echinococcus, Disease and Livestock.

His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Feces, Ancylostoma and Ancylostoma caninum. His Environmental health research integrates issues from Sanitation, Trichuris trichiura, Ascaris lumbricoides and Soil contamination. His work carried out in the field of Fasciola hepatica brings together such families of science as Range, Fasciola gigantica and Intermediate host.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of Centella asiatica on skeletal muscle structure and key enzymes of glucose and glycogen metabolism in type 2 diabetic rats. (11 citations)
  • Molecular identification of hookworm isolates from stray dogs, humans and selected wildlife from South Africa. (10 citations)
  • Optimal control applied to a temperature dependent schistosomiasis model. (8 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Genus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Veterinary medicine, Fasciola gigantica, Fasciola hepatica, Zoology and Animal husbandry. Samson Mukaratirwa works in the field of Veterinary medicine, focusing on Giardia in particular. His study in Fasciola gigantica is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hepatica, Pseudosuccinea columella, Fasciola and Intermediate host.

His research integrates issues of Range and Galba truncatula in his study of Pseudosuccinea columella. His study in the field of Radix natalensis also crosses realms of Cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and Tanzania. His studies in Animal husbandry integrate themes in fields like African swine fever, Socioeconomics and Porcine cysticercosis.
