Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Archaeology

Alfredo Pérez-González focuses on Paleontology, Homo antecessor, Pleistocene, Archaeology and Early Pleistocene. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mineralogy, Thermoluminescence dating, Optically stimulated luminescence, Cave and Excavation in addition to Homo antecessor. His Pleistocene research incorporates themes from Drainage basin, Holocene, Atmospheric circulation and Peninsula.

His Archaeology study frequently links to related topics such as Fauna. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range, Homo erectus, Mandible, Geochronology and Series. In Acheulean, Alfredo Pérez-González works on issues like Fluvial, which are connected to Period.

His most cited work include:

  • The first hominin of Europe (454 citations)
  • Luminescence chronology of cave sediments at the Atapuerca paleoanthropological site, Spain. (243 citations)
  • Paleomagnetic age for hominid fossils at Atapuerca archaeological site, Spain (210 citations)

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

Alfredo Pérez-González mainly focuses on Archaeology, Pleistocene, Paleontology, Acheulean and Peninsula. His research ties Fauna and Archaeology together. Alfredo Pérez-González is interested in Early Pleistocene, which is a branch of Pleistocene.

Paleontology is represented through his Homo antecessor, Marine isotope stage, Sedimentary rock, Structural basin and Chronology research. His research in Acheulean focuses on subjects like Olduvai Gorge, which are connected to Human evolution and Homo erectus. His Peninsula study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mediterranean climate, Physical geography and Habitat.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (48.95%)
  • Pleistocene (42.66%)
  • Paleontology (33.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Pleistocene (42.66%)
  • Archaeology (48.95%)
  • Acheulean (15.38%)

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

Pleistocene, Archaeology, Acheulean, Paleontology and Peninsula are his primary areas of study. Alfredo Pérez-González interconnects Ecology, Woodland, Cave and Structural basin in the investigation of issues within Pleistocene. His work deals with themes such as Lithic technology, Homo erectus, Olduvai Gorge, Early Pleistocene and Stadial, which intersect with Acheulean.

His Paleontology research is mostly focused on the topic Radiometric dating. His Radiometric dating research focuses on Section and how it relates to Homo antecessor. His work carried out in the field of Peninsula brings together such families of science as Debitage and Habitat.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Origin of The Acheulean: The 1.7 Million-Year-Old Site of FLK West, Olduvai Gorge (Tanzania) (88 citations)
  • Evaluating the suitability of extended-range luminescence dating techniques over early and Middle Pleistocene timescales: Published datasets and case studies from Atapuerca, Spain (85 citations)
  • New radiometric dates on the lowest stratigraphical section (TD1 to TD6) of Gran Dolina site (Atapuerca, Spain) (57 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Archaeology

His main research concerns Pleistocene, Archaeology, Paleontology, Acheulean and Quartz. His research on Pleistocene focuses in particular on Homo antecessor. His Homo antecessor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Radiometric dating, Section, Sequence stratigraphy, Sequence and Sima.

His study in Peninsula, Excavation, Oldowan, Olduvai Gorge and Karst is carried out as part of his Archaeology studies. His Acheulean study incorporates themes from Human evolution, Fauna and Homo erectus. His Quartz research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mousterian, Neanderthal, Palimpsest and Rock shelter.
