Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Insect

Giovanni Benelli mainly investigates Mosquito control, Botany, Toxicology, Silver nanoparticle and Aedes aegypti. His Mosquito control research incorporates elements of Sterile insect technique and Biotechnology. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Veterinary medicine and Culex tritaeniorhynchus.

His research in Toxicology tackles topics such as Pesticide which are related to areas like Mode of action. His Aedes aegypti research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microbiology and Dengue fever. His Anopheles stephensi research includes themes of Plasmodium falciparum, Culex quinquefasciatus and Anopheles.

His most cited work include:

  • Research in mosquito control: current challenges for a brighter future. (370 citations)
  • Essential Oils as Ecofriendly Biopesticides? Challenges and Constraints (365 citations)
  • Declining malaria, rising of dengue and Zika virus: insights for mosquito vector control (363 citations)

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

Botany, Aedes aegypti, Toxicology, Culex quinquefasciatus and Silver nanoparticle are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Culex tritaeniorhynchus and Anopheles subpictus in addition to Botany. Giovanni Benelli interconnects Microbiology and Dengue fever in the investigation of issues within Aedes aegypti.

His work deals with themes such as Mosquito control and Pesticide, which intersect with Toxicology. His Culex quinquefasciatus research includes themes of Housefly, Filariasis and Essential oil. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Nuclear chemistry under Silver nanoparticle, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Nanoparticle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (18.52%)
  • Aedes aegypti (16.33%)
  • Toxicology (16.50%)

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

  • Essential oil (14.14%)
  • Zoology (15.49%)
  • Culex quinquefasciatus (14.98%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Essential oil, Zoology, Culex quinquefasciatus, Horticulture and Spodoptera littoralis. His Essential oil study contributes to a more complete understanding of Botany. Giovanni Benelli combines subjects such as Mealworm, Insect and Calliphoridae with his study of Zoology.

His research integrates issues of Mosquito control and Daphnia magna in his study of Culex quinquefasciatus. His work investigates the relationship between Horticulture and topics such as Integrated pest management that intersect with problems in Honeydew, Cryptoblabes gnidiella and Pesticide. He has included themes like Biopesticide, Toxicology and Food safety in his Larva study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plant extracts for developing mosquito larvicides: From laboratory to the field, with insights on the modes of action. (85 citations)
  • Microemulsions for delivery of Apiaceae essential oils—Towards highly effective and eco-friendly mosquito larvicides? (53 citations)
  • A review on animal–robot interaction: from bio-hybrid organisms to mixed societies (50 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Insect

His primary scientific interests are in Essential oil, Culex quinquefasciatus, Carvacrol, Spodoptera littoralis and Larva. Essential oil is a subfield of Botany that Giovanni Benelli explores. His research on Culex quinquefasciatus also deals with topics like

  • Daphnia magna which is related to area like Toxicology, Ecotoxicology, Smyrnium olusatrum, Larvicide and Tubifex tubifex,
  • Eisenia fetida which is related to area like Pimpinella anisum.

He focuses mostly in the field of Carvacrol, narrowing it down to matters related to Thymol and, in some cases, Toxicity and Veterinary medicine. His Larva research includes elements of Pesticide and Biopesticide. His study in Pesticide is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mosquito control and Parasitology.
