Richard S. Ostfeld mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Lyme disease, Disease and Ecosystem. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Infectious disease and Population density. His Biodiversity research incorporates elements of Agriculture, Ecology, Conservation biology and Habitat.
His study in Lyme disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ixodidae, Ixodes scapularis, Borrelia burgdorferi and Tick. His work deals with themes such as Communicable disease transmission, Biota and Transmission, which intersect with Disease. His Ecosystem research focuses on Community structure and how it relates to Ecological systems theory, Species evenness, Diversity index and Host.
Ecology, Lyme disease, Tick, Ixodes scapularis and Peromyscus are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Population density and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Vector, Host, Borrelia burgdorferi and Acorn in his study of Lyme disease.
He has included themes like Babesiosis and Wildlife in his Tick study. His studies deal with areas such as Nymph, Parasitiformes and Abundance as well as Ixodes scapularis. His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Infectious disease, Disease and Species diversity.
Richard S. Ostfeld spends much of his time researching Ecology, Tick, Ixodes scapularis, Lyme disease and Zoology. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Infectious disease and Zoonotic disease. While the research belongs to areas of Tick, Richard S. Ostfeld spends his time largely on the problem of Disease reservoir, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Host specificity.
The various areas that Richard S. Ostfeld examines in his Ixodes scapularis study include Abundance, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Babesiosis, Peromyscus and Nymph. His Lyme disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Landscape dynamics, Borrelia burgdorferi, Host, Typhus and Oak forest. His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Spatial ecology and Prevalence.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ixodes, Tick, Ixodes scapularis and Disease reservoir. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Vertebrate. The concepts of his Ixodes study are interwoven with issues in Global warming and Abiotic component.
His Tick study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lyme disease and Borrelia burgdorferi. He interconnects Nymph, Powassan virus and Anaplasma phagocytophilum in the investigation of issues within Ixodes scapularis. His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from One Health, Causal chain, Emerging infectious disease and Natural ecosystem.
