His main research concerns Ecology, Reproductive success, Haemoproteus, Zoology and Immunology. His Hirundo and Phenology study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecology, is frequently linked to Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Arrival time, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research in Reproductive success intersects with topics in Avian clutch size, Delichon urbica, Fledge, Passerine and Ageing.
His work on Brood as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Taeniopygia, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Natural population growth and Host. Alfonso Marzal undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Host and Avian malaria in his work.
Alfonso Marzal mainly focuses on Zoology, Ecology, Avian malaria, Haemoproteus and Malaria. His studies examine the connections between Zoology and genetics, as well as such issues in Avian clutch size, with regards to Reproductive success, Brood, Passerine, Fecundity and Population density. In general Ecology, his work in Hirundo, Predation, Range and Sparrow is often linked to Mauremys leprosa linking many areas of study.
His study in Plasmodium relictum extends to Avian malaria with its themes. He performs multidisciplinary study in Haemoproteus and Parasitism in his work. Alfonso Marzal usually deals with Malaria and limits it to topics linked to Host and Natural population growth and Intracellular parasite.
His primary areas of study are Zoology, Avian malaria, Ecology, Habitat and Host. His work on Uropygial gland is typically connected to Haemoproteus, Haemosporida and Blood parasites as part of general Zoology study, connecting several disciplines of science. As part of one scientific family, Alfonso Marzal deals mainly with the area of Haemoproteus, narrowing it down to issues related to the Leucocytozoon, and often Leucocytozoon species.
His Vector research extends to the thematically linked field of Ecology. His study in the fields of Parasitism under the domain of Host overlaps with other disciplines such as Diversity. He has researched Invasive species in several fields, including Resistance and Introduced species.
Alfonso Marzal focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Avian malaria, Parasitism and Habitat. Alfonso Marzal frequently studies issues relating to Vector and Ecology. His Vector research includes elements of Urbanization and Local adaptation.
Alfonso Marzal conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Zoology and Haemoproteus through his research. Other disciplines of study, such as Research opportunities, Ecoimmunology, Parasitology, Evolutionary biology and Biodiversity, are mixed together with his Avian malaria studies. His Habitat course of study focuses on Abundance and Shrub.
