His main research concerns Ecology, Mars Exploration Program, Extreme environment, Astrobiology and Environmental chemistry. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Iberian Pyrite Belt and Acidiphilium. Ricardo Amils has researched Mars Exploration Program in several fields, including Hematite, Mineral and Earth science.
His Extreme environment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Botany, Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, Species diversity, Anoxic waters and Extremophile. The Astrobiology study combines topics in areas such as Carbon dioxide and Space Science. His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Ferroplasma, Perennial plant, Microbial ecology and Archaea.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Ecology, Environmental chemistry, Astrobiology and Microorganism. His work deals with themes such as Geochemistry, Space exploration and Earth science, which intersect with Mars Exploration Program. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, Microbial ecology, Archaea and Extreme environment.
His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Mineralogy and Biomineralization. His research on Microorganism often connects related areas such as Biofilm. In his study, Sulfur cycle is inextricably linked to Iron cycle, which falls within the broad field of Iberian Pyrite Belt.
His primary scientific interests are in Mars Exploration Program, Microorganism, Astrobiology, Iberian Pyrite Belt and Ecology. His primary area of study in Mars Exploration Program is in the field of Meridiani Planum. His Iberian Pyrite Belt research also covers Geochemistry and Environmental chemistry studies.
His work on Biogeochemical cycle as part of general Environmental chemistry study is frequently connected to Denitrifying bacteria, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Extraterrestrial life, Cyanobacteria, Archaea and Extreme environment. His Archaea study also includes fields such as
Ricardo Amils mainly focuses on Microorganism, Archaea, Botany, Environmental chemistry and Iberian Pyrite Belt. His Microorganism research integrates issues from Organism, Microbiology, Mineralization and Copper. His Archaea research includes elements of Proteobacteria, Deep drilling, Firmicutes and Biofilm.
His Environmental chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soda Lakes, Mineralogy, Pyrite and Biomineralization. Ricardo Amils undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Primary producers and Ecology in his work. His work deals with themes such as Thermoplasmata, Halophile and Nanohaloarchaea, which intersect with Ecology.
