Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Paleontology, Taphonomy, Paleoecology and Assemblage. Her study looks at the relationship between Paleontology and fields such as Hominidae, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Her research integrates issues of Biodiversity, Ecology, Taxonomic rank, Ecosystem and Extinction event in her study of Taphonomy.

Her Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Fossil bone, Period, Zooarchaeology and Weathering. Her Paleoecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Apatosaurus, Morrison Formation and Diplodocus. The concepts of her Assemblage study are interwoven with issues in Fluvial, Sedimentary rock, Outcrop, Channel and Course.

Her most cited work include:

  • Taphonomic and ecologic information from bone weathering (1697 citations)
  • Systematic Butchery by Plio/Pleistocene Hominids at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania (503 citations)
  • Taphonomy and paleobiology (479 citations)

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

Paleontology, Ecology, Taphonomy, Paleoecology and Archaeology are her primary areas of study. Pleistocene, Sedimentary rock, Fluvial, Neogene and Rift are the primary areas of interest in her Paleontology study. As a part of the same scientific study, she usually deals with the Sedimentary rock, concentrating on Structural basin and frequently concerns with Environmental change.

Her work deals with themes such as Sedimentary depositional environment and Floodplain, which intersect with Fluvial. Ecosystem, Habitat, Species richness, Mammal and Taxon are among the areas of Ecology where she concentrates her study. Her Taphonomy research includes themes of Assemblage, Ecology and Fossil Record.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (46.32%)
  • Ecology (36.32%)
  • Taphonomy (25.26%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (36.32%)
  • Paleontology (46.32%)
  • Pleistocene (12.63%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Paleontology, Pleistocene, Archaeology and Paleoecology. In Ecology, Anna K. Behrensmeyer works on issues like Holocene, which are connected to Community. Her Paleontology course of study focuses on Stone tool and Vegetation.

Her studies deal with areas such as Sedimentary rock, Ecology and Ancient history as well as Archaeology. Her work focuses on many connections between Paleoecology and other disciplines, such as Homo erectus, that overlap with her field of interest in Paranthropus. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Taphonomy, Mass mortality is strongly linked to Assemblage.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Long-distance stone transport and pigment use in the earliest Middle Stone Age (100 citations)
  • Holocene shifts in the assembly of plant and animal communities implicate human impacts (92 citations)
  • The Hominin Sites and Paleolakes Drilling Project : High-Resolution Paleoclimate Records from the East African Rift System and Their Implications for Understanding the Environmental Context of Hominin Evolution (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Pleistocene, Homo sapiens, Paleoecology and Paleontology. Her work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Period and Carboniferous. Her Pleistocene study incorporates themes from Biotic component, Climate change and Extinction.

Her Homo sapiens study also includes fields such as

  • Middle Stone Age which is related to area like Structural basin, Acheulean, Evolutionary biology and Adaptation,
  • Rift which is related to area like Outcrop, Rift valley and Human evolution. Her Paleoecology study combines topics in areas such as Taphonomy, Holocene, Fauna, Hominidae and Community. Anna K. Behrensmeyer performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Paleontology and Context via her papers.
