His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Nest, Zoology, Brood parasite and Parasitism. His studies link Infestation with Ecology. His Nest research incorporates themes from Altricial and Reproductive success.
When carried out as part of a general Zoology research project, his work on Sturnus is frequently linked to work in Spotless starling and Paternal care, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Brood parasite study incorporates themes from Identification and Cuckoo. In Parasitism, Tomás Pérez-Contreras works on issues like Corvidae, which are connected to Avian clutch size, Habitat, Arid and Nutrient.
His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Zoology, Brood parasite, Great spotted cuckoo and Clamator. The Nest, Brood, Avian clutch size and Pine processionary research Tomás Pérez-Contreras does as part of his general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Paternal care, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Eggshell and Reproductive success.
His Brood parasite research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Obligate and Animal ecology. Tomás Pérez-Contreras has included themes like Immunocompetence, Cloaca, Predation and Cuckoo in his Great spotted cuckoo study. The concepts of his Parasitism study are interwoven with issues in Corvidae and Habitat.
Tomás Pérez-Contreras spends much of his time researching Zoology, Geography, Ecology, Hoopoe and Reproductive success. His Zoology research includes elements of Eggshell, Host and Great spotted cuckoo. His work on Parasitism as part of general Host study is frequently linked to Stage and Begging, bridging the gap between disciplines.
His study in Brood parasite and Clamator falls within the category of Ecology. The Reproductive success study combines topics in areas such as Sturnus, Feather, Hatching and Reproduction. His Inclusive fitness research integrates issues from Predation, Brood, Nest and Cuckoo.
Tomás Pérez-Contreras mostly deals with Species richness, Urbanization, Geography, Biodiversity and Ecology. Tomás Pérez-Contreras connects Species richness with Context in his study. Tomás Pérez-Contreras performs integrative study on Ecology and Community resilience.
His Urban planning study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Agroforestry, Urban ecology, Impervious surface and Nest.
