Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Biodiversity, Habitat, Species richness and Forest ecology. His research combines Agroforestry and Ecology. His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Dung beetle, Scarabaeidae, Scarabaeinae, Intact forest landscape and Threatened species.

His research integrates issues of Population density, Predation and Abundance in his study of Habitat. His Species richness study combines topics in areas such as Range, Seed dispersal, Species diversity, Plant community and Guild. His Forest ecology research includes themes of Rainforest and Deforestation.

His most cited work include:

  • Primary forests are irreplaceable for sustaining tropical biodiversity (1152 citations)
  • Quantifying the biodiversity value of tropical primary, secondary, and plantation forests. (786 citations)
  • Prospects for tropical forest biodiversity in a human-modified world. (649 citations)

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

Carlos A. Peres mostly deals with Ecology, Amazon rainforest, Biodiversity, Habitat and Agroforestry. Species richness, Abundance, Amazonian, Old-growth forest and Habitat fragmentation are the core of his Ecology study. His Old-growth forest study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Forest ecology and Secondary forest.

His work in Amazon rainforest covers topics such as Deforestation which are related to areas like Threatened species. His work deals with themes such as Tropics, Ecosystem and Land use, which intersect with Biodiversity. His Agroforestry research integrates issues from Agriculture and Logging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (74.44%)
  • Amazon rainforest (29.78%)
  • Biodiversity (30.22%)

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

  • Ecology (74.44%)
  • Habitat (30.00%)
  • Biodiversity (30.22%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity, Amazon rainforest and Species richness. Carlos A. Peres brings together Ecology and Defaunation to produce work in his papers. His study in the field of Habitat destruction, Habitat fragmentation and Landscape ecology also crosses realms of Context.

His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry, Livelihood, Land use and Ecosystem services. He has included themes like Arbovirus, Natural resource, Floodplain and Fishery in his Amazon rainforest study. His Species richness research incorporates elements of Dung beetle, Archipelago, Species diversity and Biological dispersal.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extinction filters mediate the global effects of habitat fragmentation on animals. (40 citations)
  • The conservation value of human-modified landscapes for the world’s primates (35 citations)
  • Prey availability and temporal partitioning modulate felid coexistence in Neotropical forests (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Carlos A. Peres spends much of his time researching Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity, Amazon rainforest and Threatened species. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Defaunation through his works. His studies deal with areas such as Deforestation and Ecosystem as well as Habitat.

His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry, Edaphic, Land use, Ecosystem services and Landscape ecology. His work in Agroforestry tackles topics such as Global biodiversity which are related to areas like Old-growth forest, Microclimate, Understory, Logging and Forest management. His Amazon rainforest research integrates issues from Zoology and Arbovirus.
