Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Cave, Middle Stone Age, Pleistocene and Archaeology. His work on Paranthropus and Glacial period as part of general Paleontology research is often related to Neogene, thus linking different fields of science. His Cave study combines topics in areas such as Australopithecus, Australopithecus sediba, Magnetostratigraphy and Radiometric dating.

His study in Middle Stone Age focuses on Howiesons Poort in particular. Andy I.R. Herries has included themes like Silcrete, Human evolution and Earth science in his Howiesons Poort study. His work in the fields of Archaeology, such as Seriation, intersects with other areas such as Multi disciplinary.

His most cited work include:

  • Early human use of marine resources and pigment in South Africa during the Middle Pleistocene (633 citations)
  • Fire As an Engineering Tool of Early Modern Humans (380 citations)
  • Fire As an Engineering Tool of Early Modern Humans (380 citations)

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

Andy I.R. Herries mostly deals with Paleontology, Archaeology, Cave, Pleistocene and Paranthropus. His Early Pleistocene, Magnetostratigraphy, Australopithecus africanus and Australopithecus sediba study in the realm of Paleontology connects with subjects such as Tufa. His Archaeology course of study focuses on Archaeomagnetic dating and Geochemistry.

His Cave study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Paleomagnetism, Biochronology, Radiometric dating and Chronology. Andy I.R. Herries interconnects Taphonomy and Geochronology in the investigation of issues within Pleistocene. His Australopithecus research focuses on subjects like Human evolution, which are linked to Homo sapiens.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (63.45%)
  • Archaeology (46.90%)
  • Cave (48.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cave (48.28%)
  • Paleontology (63.45%)
  • Pleistocene (28.97%)

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

Andy I.R. Herries mainly investigates Cave, Paleontology, Pleistocene, Australopithecus and Archaeology. His research integrates issues of Marine isotope stage, Physical geography, Metridiochoerus and Stadial in his study of Cave. His study in the fields of Early Pleistocene and Oldowan under the domain of Paleontology overlaps with other disciplines such as Stratigraphy, Fluvial and Contextual information.

His studies in Pleistocene integrate themes in fields like Speleothem and Paleoclimatology. His study looks at the intersection of Australopithecus and topics like Human evolution with Range, Australopithecus sediba, Radiometric dating and Communication. His Archaeology course of study focuses on Dinofelis and Plio-Pleistocene and Provenance.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • U-Pb-dated flowstones restrict South African early hominin record to dry climate phases. (33 citations)
  • U-Pb-dated flowstones restrict South African early hominin record to dry climate phases. (33 citations)
  • Contemporaneity of Australopithecus, Paranthropus, and early Homo erectus in South Africa. (30 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology
  • Ecology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Australopithecus, Cave, Paranthropus, Human evolution and Physical geography. His Australopithecus research incorporates themes from Crania, Homo sapiens and Fossil Record. His Cave research overlaps with other disciplines such as δ18O and δ13C.

Evolutionary biology and Paleontology are the two main areas of interest in his Paranthropus studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Zoology, Range, Radiometric dating and Extinction in addition to Human evolution. His work carried out in the field of Physical geography brings together such families of science as Speleothem, Paleoclimatology, Pleistocene, Stadial and Marine isotope stage.
