Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Proterozoic, Ecology, Precambrian and Sedimentary rock. In his research on the topic of Paleontology, Carbon cycle is strongly related with Extinction event. The various areas that Andrew H. Knoll examines in his Proterozoic study include Taphonomy, Earth science, Doushantuo Formation, Anoxic waters and Archean.

His work in the fields of Biodiversity overlaps with other areas such as Diversification. His Precambrian study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geologic record, Tectonics, Bottom water, Phylum and Calcium carbonate. His Sedimentary rock research includes elements of Diagenesis and Meridiani Planum.

His most cited work include:

  • Animals in a bacterial world, a new imperative for the life sciences (1396 citations)
  • The Evolution of Modern Eukaryotic Phytoplankton (1040 citations)
  • Proterozoic ocean chemistry and evolution: A bioinorganic bridge? (801 citations)

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

Paleontology, Proterozoic, Geochemistry, Ecology and Sedimentary rock are his primary areas of study. Paleontology is a component of his Precambrian, Acritarch, Taphonomy, Sedimentary depositional environment and Phanerozoic studies. His Proterozoic research integrates issues from Carbonate rock, Riphean, Earth science and Archean.

His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Mineralogy and Meridiani Planum. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phylogenetics, Clade and Paleozoic. His research on Sedimentary rock frequently links to adjacent areas such as Siliciclastic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (40.73%)
  • Proterozoic (24.49%)
  • Geochemistry (17.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Paleontology (40.73%)
  • Ecology (16.02%)
  • Proterozoic (24.49%)

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

Andrew H. Knoll mostly deals with Paleontology, Ecology, Proterozoic, Geochemistry and Earth science. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chemostratigraphy and Stromatolite. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Paleozoic and Ecology.

His Proterozoic research includes themes of Carbonate rock, Phanerozoic, Anoxic waters and Archean. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Geochemistry, Mars Exploration Program and Impact crater is strongly linked to Mineralogy. His studies in Diagenesis integrate themes in fields like Noachian and Meridiani Planum.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Animals in a bacterial world, a new imperative for the life sciences (1396 citations)
  • Statistical analysis of iron geochemical data suggests limited late Proterozoic oxygenation (309 citations)
  • Paleobiological Perspectives on Early Eukaryotic Evolution (229 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock

Andrew H. Knoll spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Ecology, Proterozoic, Mineralogy and Geochemistry. Andrew H. Knoll has included themes like Earth science and Extinction event in his Paleontology study. His research investigates the connection between Ecology and topics such as Biological evolution that intersect with issues in Diversity, Genealogy, Earth history and Environmental ethics.

His Proterozoic research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Annals, Phanerozoic, Anoxic waters and Archean. His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Impact crater, Noachian, Earth and Mars Exploration Program. His Geochemistry study deals with Geologic Sediments intersecting with Mineralization, Biomineralization and Silicate.
