Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Tick

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tick, Virology, Ixodidae, Amblyomma cajennense and Rickettsia. Marcelo B. Labruna focuses mostly in the field of Tick, narrowing it down to matters related to Nymph and, in some cases, Horizontal transmission. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Serology, Polymerase chain reaction and Microbiology.

Marcelo B. Labruna is conducting research in Acari, Zoology and Ecology as part of his Ixodidae study. The various areas that he examines in his Rickettsia study include Vero cell and Felis. His studies deal with areas such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Tick-borne disease as well as Spotted fever.

His most cited work include:

  • Update on Tick-Borne Rickettsioses around the World: a Geographic Approach (683 citations)
  • Rickettsia Species Infecting Amblyomma cooperi Ticks from an Area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, Where Brazilian Spotted Fever Is Endemic (452 citations)
  • Rickettsia Species Infecting Amblyomma cooperi Ticks from an Area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, Where Brazilian Spotted Fever Is Endemic (452 citations)

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

Marcelo B. Labruna spends much of his time researching Tick, Zoology, Ixodidae, Virology and Acari. His study looks at the relationship between Tick and topics such as Nymph, which overlap with Larva. His research combines Ixodes and Zoology.

His research related to Rickettsia and Rickettsia rickettsii might be considered part of Virology. His studies in Rickettsia integrate themes in fields like Candidatus, Microbiology and Felis. His Acari research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxon, Taxonomy, Seta and Anatomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tick (45.28%)
  • Zoology (35.40%)
  • Ixodidae (29.79%)

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

  • Zoology (35.40%)
  • Tick (45.28%)
  • Ixodidae (29.79%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Zoology, Tick, Ixodidae, Rickettsia and Amblyomma. Marcelo B. Labruna has researched Tick in several fields, including Rickettsia rickettsii, Spotted fever and Microbiology. Rickettsia rickettsii is a subfield of Virology that Marcelo B. Labruna studies.

In his work, Borrelia burgdorferi is strongly intertwined with Ixodes, which is a subfield of Ixodidae. His Rickettsia research integrates issues from Veterinary medicine, Candidatus and Polymerase chain reaction. His Amblyomma study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rickettsia sibirica and Haemaphysalis.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rhipicephalus sanguineus (Latreille, 1806): Neotype designation, morphological re-description of all parasitic stages and molecular characterization. (43 citations)
  • Phylogenetic evidence for the existence of multiple strains of Rickettsia parkeri in the New World (38 citations)
  • Detection of Rickettsia spp. in ticks parasitizing toads ( Rhinella marina ) in the northern Brazilian Amazon (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Genus

His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Tick, Ixodidae, Rickettsia and Amblyomma. His Tick research includes elements of Rickettsia rickettsii, Spotted fever and Phylogenetic tree. His Spotted fever study combines topics in areas such as Rickettsiosis, Tick-borne disease and Genotype.

His Ixodidae research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ixodes and Taxonomy. His research on Rickettsia also deals with topics like

  • Candidatus, which have a strong connection to Amplicon and Polymerase chain reaction,
  • Amblyomma cajennense most often made with reference to Amazon rainforest,
  • Species richness that connect with fields like Sympatric speciation and National park. Marcelo B. Labruna focuses mostly in the field of Amblyomma, narrowing it down to topics relating to Rickettsia sibirica and, in certain cases, Maximum parsimony, Rickettsia conorii and Amblyomma nodosum.
