Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Biomonitoring, Contamination, Moss and Pollution. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Pollutant and Algae. His Algae study incorporates themes from Estuary and Water pollution.

Contamination is frequently linked to Scleropodium purum in his study. His studies in Moss integrate themes in fields like Environmental engineering, Deposition, Trace element, Air pollution and Spatial distribution. His Pollution study combines topics in areas such as Bioconcentration, Bioaccumulation and Air quality index.

His most cited work include:

  • Seasonal variation and background levels of heavy metals in two green seaweeds (145 citations)
  • Moss bag biomonitoring: a methodological review. (125 citations)
  • An extended study of heavy metal deposition in Galicia (NW Spain) based on moss analysis. (113 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Biomonitoring, Moss, Contamination and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Pollutant and Botany in his study of Environmental chemistry. His work in Biomonitoring addresses issues such as Feather, which are connected to fields such as Buteo buteo.

His Moss research includes themes of Sampling, Air pollution, Heavy metals and Deposition. His Contamination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Elution, Air quality index, Particulates, Pollution and Metalloid. His Ecology research integrates issues from Zoology and Physical geography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (55.33%)
  • Biomonitoring (43.33%)
  • Moss (42.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • Environmental chemistry (55.33%)
  • Moss (42.00%)
  • Biomonitoring (43.33%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Moss, Biomonitoring, Contamination and Pseudoscleropodium purum. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Sampling, Metalloid, Pollutant and Botany. His Botany research includes elements of Ecotoxicology and Extraction.

His study in the field of Sphagnum denticulatum also crosses realms of Fontinalis antipyretica. Alejo Carballeira combines subjects such as Spatial ecology, Environmental engineering and Pollution with his study of Biomonitoring. His research investigates the connection between Contamination and topics such as Particulates that intersect with issues in Bioconcentration.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A critical review of protocols for moss biomonitoring of atmospheric deposition: Sampling and sample preparation (53 citations)
  • Effect of age on the heavy metal concentration in segments of Pseudoscleropodium purum and the biomonitoring of atmospheric deposition of metals (36 citations)
  • A meta-analysis approach to the effects of fish farming on soft bottom polychaeta assemblages in temperate regions. (29 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Alejo Carballeira spends much of his time researching Moss, Biomonitoring, Environmental chemistry, Heavy metals and Pseudoscleropodium purum. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sampling and Atmospheric sciences. His study looks at the relationship between Biomonitoring and topics such as Botany, which overlap with Water pollution and Aquatic ecosystem.

Environmental chemistry is closely attributed to Contamination in his research. His studies deal with areas such as Metalloid and Environmental planning as well as Heavy metals. His Pseudoscleropodium purum study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Shoot and Pollutant.
