Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genome

Colomban de Vargas mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Metagenomics, Plankton and Phylogenetics. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Picoplankton and Ribosomal DNA. His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Marine biology and Earth system science.

His Metagenomics study combines topics in areas such as Phycodnaviridae, Genome and Prokaryote. Colomban de Vargas has included themes like Range and Community structure in his Plankton study. His Phylogenetics research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology and Megaviridae.

His most cited work include:

  • Structure and function of the global ocean microbiome (1143 citations)
  • Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean (909 citations)
  • Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean (909 citations)

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

Colomban de Vargas focuses on Ecology, Plankton, Biodiversity, Phylogenetics and Evolutionary biology. His studies deal with areas such as Protist and Phylogenetic tree as well as Ecology. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Macroecology under Plankton, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Abyssal zone.

His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Range, Ribosomal RNA, Marine ecosystem, DNA barcoding and Biome. His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxonomy and DNA sequencing. His Evolutionary biology study also includes

  • Metagenomics together with Genomics, Marine biology and Horizontal gene transfer,
  • Pyrosequencing, which have a strong connection to Relative species abundance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (94.44%)
  • Plankton (45.14%)
  • Biodiversity (29.86%)

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

  • Ecology (94.44%)
  • Plankton (45.14%)
  • Evolutionary biology (28.47%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Plankton, Evolutionary biology, Biodiversity and Ecosystem. His research in Ecology tackles topics such as Deep sea which are related to areas like Virus. Colomban de Vargas interconnects Reef, Abundance and Field in the investigation of issues within Plankton.

His Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Taxon, Ribosomal RNA, Environmental DNA and Metagenomics. He has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Coral reef and Coral. In his research on the topic of Ecosystem, Aquatic ecosystem, Functional diversity, Picoplankton and Taxonomic rank is strongly related with Protist.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Marine DNA Viral Macro- and Microdiversity from Pole to Pole. (169 citations)
  • A global ocean atlas of eukaryotic genes (133 citations)
  • A global ocean atlas of eukaryotic genes (133 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genome

Colomban de Vargas spends much of his time researching Metagenomics, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Genome and Genomics. His Metagenomics research incorporates themes from Ribosomal RNA, Internal transcribed spacer, Dinoflagellate and Marine biology. He combines subjects such as Biodiversity and Marine ecosystem, Ecosystem with his study of Ecology.

His Biodiversity research also works with subjects such as

  • Biome and related Phylogenetics,
  • Climate change which is related to area like Plankton. Biodiversity hotspot is a subfield of Ecology that Colomban de Vargas explores. His work on Biological dispersal expands to the thematically related Ecology.
