Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Zoology

His primary areas of investigation include Ceratopogonidae, Culicoides imicola, Culicoides, Virus and Serotype. The study incorporates disciplines such as Arbovirus and Virology in addition to Ceratopogonidae. Gert J. Venter combines subjects such as Zoology and Biotic component, Abiotic component with his study of Arbovirus.

His Culicoides imicola study combines topics in areas such as Abundance, Hatching, Larva and Life history. His work in the fields of Culicoides, such as Culicoides obsoletus, intersects with other areas such as Fecundity. His studies in Serotype integrate themes in fields like Culicoides bolitinos and African horse sickness.

His most cited work include:

  • Oral susceptibility to bluetongue virus of Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) from the United Kingdom (135 citations)
  • Bionomics of Temperate and Tropical Culicoides Midges: Knowledge Gaps and Consequences for Transmission of Culicoides-Borne Viruses (125 citations)
  • Vectors: Culicoides spp. (92 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ceratopogonidae, Culicoides, Culicoides imicola, Virus and Virology. Gert J. Venter has researched Ceratopogonidae in several fields, including Midge, African horse sickness and African Horse Sickness Virus. His Culicoides research includes themes of Host, Outbreak and Biting.

When carried out as part of a general Culicoides imicola research project, his work on Culicoides bolitinos is frequently linked to work in White light, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Virus connects with themes related to Serotype in his study. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Arbovirus and Wolbachia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ceratopogonidae (76.32%)
  • Culicoides (64.47%)
  • Culicoides imicola (53.95%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Culicoides (64.47%)
  • Ceratopogonidae (76.32%)
  • Zoology (17.11%)

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

Gert J. Venter spends much of his time researching Culicoides, Ceratopogonidae, Zoology, African horse sickness and Culicoides imicola. Gert J. Venter conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Culicoides and Ultraviolet. Gert J. Venter regularly ties together related areas like Subgenus in his Ceratopogonidae studies.

His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Arbovirus and Host, Wolbachia. His research investigates the connection with African horse sickness and areas like African Horse Sickness Virus which intersect with concerns in Feces. His research integrates issues of Blood meal and Light tube in his study of Culicoides imicola.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • African Horse Sickness Virus: History, Transmission, and Current Status. (33 citations)
  • Phylogenetic relationships and molecular delimitation of Culicoides Latreille (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) species in the Afrotropical region: interest for the subgenus Avaritia (7 citations)
  • Flight and swarming behaviour of Culicoides species (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) on a livestock farm in Northern Spain. (6 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Zoology

His main research concerns Ceratopogonidae, Culicoides, Zoology, Ceratopogonidae species and Subgenus. The various areas that Gert J. Venter examines in his Ceratopogonidae study include Livestock and African Horse Sickness Virus. His Livestock study incorporates themes from Swarming and Culicoides punctatus, Culicoides obsoletus, Culicoides achrayi.

Gert J. Venter interconnects Arbovirus, African horse sickness, Outbreak, Transmission and Equidae in the investigation of issues within African Horse Sickness Virus. His study brings together the fields of Ecology and African horse sickness. His Ceratopogonidae species study spans across into subjects like Monophyly and Coalescent theory.
