Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha spends much of his time researching Ecology, Lizard, Zoology, Habitat and Mabuya. His study in Sympatric speciation, Predation, Sauria, Cnemidophorus and Tropidurus torquatus are all subfields of Ecology. Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha interconnects Gekkonidae, Squamata, Extinction, Herpetology and Vegetation in the investigation of issues within Lizard.

His studies examine the connections between Zoology and genetics, as well as such issues in Thermoregulation, with regards to Life history. His Habitat study incorporates themes from Human pressure, Turtle and Fauna. Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha combines subjects such as Hemidactylus, Genus and Lygosominae, Trachylepis, Skink with his study of Mabuya.

His most cited work include:

  • Erosion of lizard diversity by climate change and altered thermal niches. (1088 citations)
  • Role of transient silicon limitation in the development of cyanobacteria blooms in the Guadiana estuary, south-western Iberia (125 citations)
  • Effects of conventional and biodegradable microplastics on a marine ecosystem engineer (Arenicola marina) and sediment nutrient cycling (120 citations)

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

Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha mainly investigates Ecology, Lizard, Habitat, Zoology and Rainforest. Ecology is represented through his Species richness, Predation, Atlantic forest, Abundance and Squamata research. He focuses mostly in the field of Species richness, narrowing it down to matters related to Biodiversity and, in some cases, Ecosystem.

His Lizard research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Liolaemus lutzae and Hemidactylus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fauna, Vegetation and Sympatric speciation. Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha has researched Rainforest in several fields, including Genus and Plant litter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (58.29%)
  • Lizard (20.28%)
  • Habitat (19.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (58.29%)
  • Habitat (19.12%)
  • Biodiversity (5.76%)

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

Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha mainly focuses on Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity, Species richness and Atlantic forest. His work in Abundance, Endemism, Biome, Rainforest and Ecosystem are all subfields of Ecology research. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trophic level, Vegetation and STREAMS in addition to Habitat.

His Biodiversity research focuses on subjects like Climate change, which are linked to Lepidosauria, Species distribution and Indigenous. His study looks at the relationship between Species richness and topics such as Fauna, which overlap with Taxon. His research on Lizard concerns the broader Zoology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of conventional and biodegradable microplastics on a marine ecosystem engineer (Arenicola marina) and sediment nutrient cycling (120 citations)
  • Assessing land-ocean connectivity via Submarine Groundwater Discharge (SGD) in the Ria Formosa Lagoon (Portugal) : combining radon measurements and stable isotope hydrology. (22 citations)
  • Effects of Brazil's Political Crisis on the Science Needed for Biodiversity Conservation (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biodiversity, Habitat, Hydrology and Biogeochemical cycle. His Ecology study is mostly concerned with Taxon, Amphibian, Endemism, Atlantic forest and Threatened species. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developing country, Climate change and Biome.

His Habitat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecosystem, Lizard and Hylidae. His work on Submarine groundwater discharge as part of general Hydrology research is frequently linked to Radon, bridging the gap between disciplines. Carlos Frederico Duarte Rocha has included themes like Sediment and Benthic zone in his Biogeochemical cycle study.
