Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

Craig Moritz focuses on Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Biodiversity, Rainforest and Genetics. Craig Moritz interconnects Phylogeography and Genetic diversity in the investigation of issues within Ecology. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Population genetics, Monophyly, Reproductive isolation, Genetic variation and Genetic divergence.

The various areas that he examines in his Biodiversity study include Spatial ecology, Species richness, Habitat and Taxon. His work carried out in the field of Rainforest brings together such families of science as Biome, Speciation, Lizard and Biogeography. His Range research includes themes of Environmental change and Biological dispersal.

His most cited work include:

  • Novel methods improve prediction of species' distributions from occurrence data (5714 citations)
  • Defining ‘Evolutionarily Significant Units’ for conservation (2451 citations)
  • EVOLUTION OF ANIMAL MITOCHONDRIAL DNA: RELEVANCE FOR POPULATION BIOLOGY AND SYSTEMATICS (1317 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogeography, Zoology and Biodiversity. Craig Moritz regularly links together related areas like Biological dispersal in his Ecology studies. In his study, Introgression is strongly linked to Gene flow, which falls under the umbrella field of Evolutionary biology.

He works mostly in the field of Phylogeography, limiting it down to concerns involving Allopatric speciation and, occasionally, Parapatric speciation. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Population genetics, Monophyly and Molecular phylogenetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental resource management, Species richness and Endemism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.28%)
  • Evolutionary biology (37.76%)
  • Phylogeography (23.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (63.28%)
  • Evolutionary biology (37.76%)
  • Biodiversity (17.97%)

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

Craig Moritz mainly investigates Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Biodiversity, Climate change and Phylogeography. His study involves Habitat, Endemism, Range, Rainforest and Adaptation, a branch of Ecology. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Species complex, Phylogenetic tree, Genomics, Phylogenetics and Gene flow.

His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetic diversity, Species richness, Environmental resource management and Spatial variability. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Ecosystem and Landscape connectivity. The various areas that Craig Moritz examines in his Phylogeography study include Taxon, Allopatric speciation, Biological dispersal and Tropics.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prediction of phylogeographic endemism in an environmentally complex biome. (165 citations)
  • The origin and maintenance of montane diversity: integrating evolutionary and ecological processes (130 citations)
  • Specimen collection: an essential tool. (126 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

Ecology, Biodiversity, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics are his primary areas of study. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Phylogeography and Ecological speciation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Taxonomy, Environmental resource management and Genetic diversity in addition to Phylogeography.

His Biodiversity research integrates issues from Range, Spatial variability, Species richness, Global change and Endemism. His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Introgression, Genomics, Chromosome, Coalescent theory and Gene flow. Craig Moritz has researched Phylogenetic tree in several fields, including Molecular cytogenetics and Chromosomal rearrangement.
