Fellow of the Royal Society of South Africa

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Permian, Beaufort Group, Therapsid and Extinction event. Paleontology connects with themes related to Ecology in his study. His Permian research integrates issues from Biostratigraphy, Genus and Tetrapod.

In his research, Premaxilla and Dromasauria is intimately related to Biozone, which falls under the overarching field of Beaufort Group. His studies in Therapsid integrate themes in fields like Adaptation and Anomodont. The various areas that Bruce S. Rubidge examines in his Extinction event study include Pristerognathus, Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone and Early Triassic.

His most cited work include:

  • The Karoo basins of south-central Africa (399 citations)
  • 27th Du Toit Memorial LectureRe-uniting lost continents – Fossil reptiles from the ancient Karoo and their wanderlust (230 citations)
  • A lamprey from the Devonian period of South Africa (187 citations)

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

Bruce S. Rubidge spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Permian, Beaufort Group, Therapsid and Structural basin. His study in Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone, Dicynodont, Gondwana, Biostratigraphy and Tetrapod is done as part of Paleontology. His Permian study incorporates themes from Taxon, Ecology and Extinction event.

His Beaufort Group research includes themes of Tapinocephalus, Biozone and Supergroup. His Therapsid study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Niuksenitia, Skull and Anomodont. Within one scientific family, Bruce S. Rubidge focuses on topics pertaining to Pareiasaur under Structural basin, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cranial morphology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (77.12%)
  • Permian (43.79%)
  • Beaufort Group (33.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Paleontology (77.12%)
  • Permian (43.79%)
  • Structural basin (19.61%)

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

Bruce S. Rubidge focuses on Paleontology, Permian, Structural basin, Beaufort Group and Extinction event. His works in Tetrapod, Supergroup, Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone, Gondwana and Devonian are all subjects of inquiry into Paleontology. His studies deal with areas such as Taxon, Ecology and Foreland basin as well as Permian.

In Structural basin, he works on issues like Pareiasaur, which are connected to Cranial morphology. Bruce S. Rubidge focuses mostly in the field of Beaufort Group, narrowing it down to topics relating to Biostratigraphy and, in certain cases, Biogeography. The Extinction event study combines topics in areas such as Paracyclotosaurus, Cynognathus and Ectotherm.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Olson's Extinction and the latitudinal biodiversity gradient of tetrapods in the Permian. (28 citations)
  • Changing palaeoenvironments and tetrapod populations in the Daptocephalus Assemblage Zone (Karoo Basin, South Africa) indicate early onset of the Permo-Triassic mass extinction (19 citations)
  • Oxygen isotopes suggest elevated thermometabolism within multiple Permo-Triassic therapsid clades (19 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Paleontology, Permian, Extinction event, Tetrapod and Ecology. All of his Paleontology and Gondwana, Paleozoic, Temnospondyli, Parietal eye and Skull investigations are sub-components of the entire Paleontology study. His Permian study which covers Foreland basin that intersects with Diachronous.

His Extinction event course of study focuses on Dicynodont and Kawingasaurus, Dinocephalia and Endocast. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Biarmosuchia and Olson's Extinction. The concepts of his Beaufort Group study are interwoven with issues in Lystrosaurus, Dicynodon and Theriognathus.
