Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Clade

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Ecology, Permian, Zoology and Sister group. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neosuchia and Notosuchia. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Lystrosaurus, Cistecephalus, Dicynodon and Edopoidea.

His work deals with themes such as Nigerpeton, Paleozoic, Carboniferous and Permian–Triassic extinction event, Extinction event, which intersect with Permian. His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carcharodontosauridae and Archosaur. As a part of the same scientific study, Christian A. Sidor usually deals with the Sister group, concentrating on Ghost lineage and frequently concerns with Crocodile, Avemetatarsalia and Evolutionary biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Predatory Dinosaurs from the Sahara and Late Cretaceous Faunal Differentiation (321 citations)
  • A Long-Snouted Predatory Dinosaur from Africa and the Evolution of Spinosaurids (222 citations)
  • The Giant Crocodyliform Sarcosuchus from the Cretaceous of Africa (207 citations)

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

Christian A. Sidor mainly focuses on Paleontology, Permian, Therapsid, Anatomy and Tetrapod. His Sister group research extends to the thematically linked field of Paleontology. His Permian research integrates issues from Ecology, Fauna, Skull, Saharastega and Gondwana.

His research integrates issues of Lemurosaurus, Synapsid and Premaxilla in his study of Therapsid. His Anatomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Autapomorphy and Pareiasaur. The concepts of his Tetrapod study are interwoven with issues in Usili Formation, Dicynodon Assemblage Zone, Peltobatrachus and Group.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (72.00%)
  • Permian (39.00%)
  • Therapsid (18.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Paleontology (72.00%)
  • Permian (39.00%)
  • Anatomy (18.00%)

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

Christian A. Sidor mostly deals with Paleontology, Permian, Anatomy, Lystrosaurus and Fremouw Formation. His Paleontology research incorporates themes from Fauna and Mandible. He studies Permian, focusing on Synapsid in particular.

His work carried out in the field of Anatomy brings together such families of science as Bone lesion and Postcrania. His work focuses on many connections between Lystrosaurus and other disciplines, such as Tusk, that overlap with his field of interest in Range, Pangaea and Extinction event. He studied Fremouw Formation and Glacier that intersect with Dicynodont.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A novel archosauromorph from Antarctica and an updated review of a high-latitude vertebrate assemblage in the wake of the end-Permian mass extinction (10 citations)
  • Laosuchus naga gen. et sp. nov., a new chroniosuchian from South-East Asia (Laos) with internal structures revealed by micro-CT scan and discussion of its palaeobiology (8 citations)
  • Pathology in a Permian parareptile: congenital malformation of sacral vertebrae (6 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Clade

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Mesozoic, Permian, Permian–Triassic extinction event and Latitude. His Paleontology study focuses mostly on Foramen and Ridge. His studies in Mesozoic integrate themes in fields like Fossil Record, Eucynodontia, Cynodont, Extinction event and Tetrapod.

In general Permian study, his work on Otic notch often relates to the realm of Crest, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Assemblage and Fremouw Formation in addition to Permian–Triassic extinction event.
