Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

Veterinary medicine, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Leishmania infantum, Tick and Disease are his primary areas of study. Filipe Dantas-Torres is studying Tick-borne disease, which is a component of Veterinary medicine. His work deals with themes such as Rhipicephalus, Species complex and Ixodid tick, which intersect with Rhipicephalus sanguineus.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Intensive care medicine and Bartonella, Virology in addition to Leishmania infantum. His studies in Tick integrate themes in fields like Sensu, Zoology, Taxonomy and Ehrlichia canis. His Disease research includes themes of Zoonosis, Immunology and Public health.

His most cited work include:

  • Ticks and tick-borne diseases: a One Health perspective. (535 citations)
  • Ticks and tick-borne diseases: a One Health perspective. (535 citations)
  • The brown dog tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latreille, 1806) (Acari: Ixodidae): from taxonomy to control. (336 citations)

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

Filipe Dantas-Torres mainly investigates Veterinary medicine, Zoology, Tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Leishmania infantum. He focuses mostly in the field of Veterinary medicine, narrowing it down to topics relating to Dirofilaria immitis and, in certain cases, Vector. His Tick research focuses on Nymph and how it connects with Larva.

The various areas that Filipe Dantas-Torres examines in his Rhipicephalus sanguineus study include Sensu, Rhipicephalus, Spirurida, Ribosomal RNA and Ehrlichia canis. In his study, Anaplasma platys is inextricably linked to Virology, which falls within the broad field of Leishmania infantum. He focuses mostly in the field of Immunology, narrowing it down to matters related to Disease and, in some cases, Epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (70.34%)
  • Zoology (34.71%)
  • Tick (36.09%)

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

  • Zoology (34.71%)
  • Veterinary medicine (70.34%)
  • Leishmania infantum (26.67%)

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

Filipe Dantas-Torres focuses on Zoology, Veterinary medicine, Leishmania infantum, Tick and Visceral leishmaniasis. His studies examine the connections between Zoology and genetics, as well as such issues in Spotted fever, with regards to Coxiella burnetii. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bartonella and CATS.

His study in Leishmania infantum is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transmission, Leishmania tarentolae and One Health. His Tick study incorporates themes from Nymph, Ehrlichia canis and Animal ecology. His Visceral leishmaniasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Serology, Virology and Environmental health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ticks (Ixodida: Argasidae, Ixodidae) of Brazil: Updated species checklist and taxonomic keys. (24 citations)
  • Culling Dogs for Zoonotic Visceral Leishmaniasis Control: The Wind of Change. (23 citations)
  • Culling Dogs for Zoonotic Visceral Leishmaniasis Control: The Wind of Change. (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Disease

His main research concerns Tick, Zoology, Babesia, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Leishmania infantum. His work on Filarial worms as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Acanthocheilonema, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Babesia study is associated with Veterinary medicine.

Many of his studies on Veterinary medicine apply to Dirofilaria immitis as well. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ribosomal RNA, Parasitology and Tick Control in addition to Rhipicephalus sanguineus. His work in the fields of Leishmania infantum, such as Canine leishmaniasis, intersects with other areas such as Culling.
