Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Amazon rainforest, Drainage basin, Gold mining, Environmental chemistry and Environmental protection. Wolfgang C. Pfeiffer has included themes like Methylmercury, MERCURE and Pollution in his Drainage basin study. His Methylmercury study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Fishery, Fishing and Fauna.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Seawater, Mercury pollution, Contamination and Bay in addition to Environmental chemistry. His Bay research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bioconcentration, Water pollution, Brown algae, Algae and Trace metal. The concepts of his Environmental protection study are interwoven with issues in Total hg, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management and North sea.

His most cited work include:

  • Mercury and methylmercury in fish and human hair from the Tapajós river basin, Brazil (235 citations)
  • Mercury pollution due to gold mining in the Madeira river basin, Brazil. (219 citations)
  • Human exposure to mercury due to goldmining in the Tapajos River basin, Amazon, Brazil: Speciation of mercury in human hair, blood and urine (190 citations)

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

Wolfgang C. Pfeiffer mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Bay, Amazon rainforest, Environmental engineering and Pollution. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Contamination, Pollutant and Tillandsia, Spanish-moss. His Bay study incorporates themes from Oyster, Fishery, Water pollution and Brown algae, Algae.

The Amazon rainforest study combines topics in areas such as Drainage basin, Methylmercury, Tributary and Environmental protection. His research in Environmental engineering intersects with topics in Particulates and Heavy metals. The various areas that Wolfgang C. Pfeiffer examines in his Pollution study include Ecosystem and MERCURE.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (40.91%)
  • Bay (34.85%)
  • Amazon rainforest (24.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2000-2016)?

  • Environmental chemistry (40.91%)
  • Bay (34.85%)
  • Amazon rainforest (24.24%)

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

Wolfgang C. Pfeiffer mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Bay, Amazon rainforest, Contamination and Tillandsia. His studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Soil contamination and Environmental engineering. His Environmental engineering research includes elements of Total hg, Epiphyte and Biomonitoring.

His research in Bay intersects with topics in Inorganic chemistry, Organic matter and Oyster, Fishery. His Amazon rainforest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Drainage basin and Surface water. His Contamination study deals with Cold vapour atomic fluorescence spectroscopy intersecting with Bromeliaceae, Environmental protection and Pollutant.

Between 2000 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Mercury in the environment and riverside population in the Madeira River Basin, Amazon, Brazil. (111 citations)
  • Heavy metals in benthic organisms from Todos os Santos Bay, Brazil. (49 citations)
  • Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane in soil, river sediment, and fish in the Amazon in Brazil. (42 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Wolfgang C. Pfeiffer spends much of his time researching Amazon rainforest, Gold mining, Surface water, Drainage basin and Gold rush. His Amazon rainforest study is concerned with the larger field of Ecology.
