Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Pathology

His primary areas of study are Veterinary medicine, Capillaria aerophila, Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, Lungworm and CATS. His study in Veterinary medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Helminths, Thelazioidea and Feces. He interconnects Angiostrongylus vasorum, Strongylida and Pathology in the investigation of issues within Aelurostrongylus abstrusus.

Donato Traversa mostly deals with Troglostrongylus brevior in his studies of Lungworm. As part of one scientific family, Donato Traversa deals mainly with the area of CATS, narrowing it down to issues related to the Respiratory distress, and often Respiratory system. The various areas that he examines in his Thelazia callipaeda study include Spirurida, Vector and Thelazia.

His most cited work include:

  • Canine and feline cardiopulmonary parasitic nematodes in Europe: emerging and underestimated (214 citations)
  • Vector-borne helminths of dogs and humans in Europe. (169 citations)
  • Feline aelurostrongylosis and canine angiostrongylosis: A challenging diagnosis for two emerging verminous pneumonia infections (106 citations)

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

Donato Traversa mainly investigates Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Moxidectin, Aelurostrongylus abstrusus and Feces. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Helminths, Capillaria aerophila, Parasitology and Drug resistance. His Zoology research focuses on subjects like Phylogenetic tree, which are linked to Phylogenetics.

His research in Moxidectin intersects with topics in Fenbendazole and Dirofilaria repens. His Aelurostrongylus abstrusus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Angiostrongylus vasorum, CATS and Strongylida. As a part of the same scientific family, Donato Traversa mostly works in the field of CATS, focusing on Pathology and, on occasion, Microbiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (46.38%)
  • Zoology (19.20%)
  • Moxidectin (17.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • CATS (15.94%)
  • Aelurostrongylus abstrusus (17.75%)
  • Zoology (19.20%)

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

CATS, Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, Zoology, Parasitology and Veterinary medicine are his primary areas of study. He has included themes like Gastroenterology, Lungworm, Enzootic, Moxidectin and Seroprevalence in his CATS study. His studies in Aelurostrongylus abstrusus integrate themes in fields like Internal medicine, Angiostrongylus vasorum and Serology.

His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Helix, Epizootiology, Larva and Felis. His Parasitology research incorporates themes from Zoonosis, Angiostrongylus chabaudi, Geographic distribution and Family medicine. His Veterinary medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Feces, Ehrlichia canis and Toxocara canis.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The relationships between faecal egg counts and gut microbial composition in UK Thoroughbreds infected by cyathostomins (23 citations)
  • Occurrence of canine and feline extra-intestinal nematodes in key endemic regions of Italy (22 citations)
  • Exposure of client-owned cats to zoonotic vector-borne pathogens: Clinic-pathological alterations and infection risk analysis (15 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Pathology

His scientific interests lie mostly in CATS, Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, Veterinary medicine, Zoology and Lungworm. His study looks at the relationship between CATS and topics such as Angiostrongylus vasorum, which overlap with Capillaria aerophila, Enzootic, Epidemiology and Dirofilaria. His work on Troglostrongylus brevior and Troglostrongylus subcrenatus as part of general Aelurostrongylus abstrusus study is frequently linked to Future studies, Scientific debate and Geography, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Veterinary medicine study incorporates themes from Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Feces, Parasitology and Dirofilaria immitis. His study focuses on the intersection of Zoology and fields such as Felis with connections in the field of Moxidectin, Toxocara cati and Babesia. His Lungworm research integrates issues from Helix, Land snail, Intermediate host and Hibernation.
