Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Genus

His main research concerns Paleontology, Neogene, Archaeology, Fauna and Pleistocene. His Paleontology research integrates issues from Stone tool and Hominidae. His Neogene study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biostratigraphy, Cenozoic and Eutheria.

His Human evolution study in the realm of Archaeology interacts with subjects such as North african. His Pleistocene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hippopotamus and Diagenesis. The Biochronology study combines topics in areas such as Sahelanthropus and Ardipithecus.

His most cited work include:

  • A new hominid from the Upper Miocene of Chad, Central Africa (772 citations)
  • Evidence for stone-tool-assisted consumption of animal tissues before 3.39 million years ago at Dikika, Ethiopia (391 citations)
  • Geology and palaeontology of the Upper Miocene Toros-Menalla hominid locality, Chad (364 citations)

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

Denis Geraads spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Pleistocene, Archaeology, Late Miocene and Fauna. His study explores the link between Paleontology and topics such as Hominidae that cross with problems in Australopithecus and Australopithecus afarensis. His work deals with themes such as Period and Quaternary, which intersect with Pleistocene.

His study in the fields of Acheulean, Cave, Assemblage and Homo erectus under the domain of Archaeology overlaps with other disciplines such as North africa. His studies deal with areas such as Zoology, Genus, Skull, Taxon and Systematics as well as Late Miocene. His Fauna research includes elements of Mammal, Hipparion and Paleoecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (49.00%)
  • Pleistocene (30.50%)
  • Archaeology (28.50%)

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

  • Paleontology (49.00%)
  • Pleistocene (30.50%)
  • Archaeology (28.50%)

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

Denis Geraads mainly investigates Paleontology, Pleistocene, Archaeology, Ecology and Acheulean. His Paleontology study combines topics in areas such as Fauna and Hominidae. His work on Early Pleistocene as part of general Pleistocene research is often related to North africa, thus linking different fields of science.

His study in the field of Assemblage, Homo sapiens and Archaeological heritage also crosses realms of Shared responsibility and Humanities. Denis Geraads has researched Ecology in several fields, including Zoology and Paleobiology. His research integrates issues of Period, Human evolution and Cave in his study of Acheulean.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The age of the hominin fossils from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco, and the origins of the Middle Stone Age (190 citations)
  • Taphonomy of fossils from the hominin-bearing deposits at Dikika, Ethiopia. (38 citations)
  • Messinian age and savannah environment of the possible hominin Graecopithecus from Europe (31 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Genus

Denis Geraads focuses on Paleontology, Archaeology, Fauna, Pleistocene and Acheulean. His Paleontology research includes themes of Human evolution and Hominidae. His research investigates the connection between Fauna and topics such as Mammal that intersect with issues in Late Miocene, Biochronology, Rift, Rift valley and Woodland.

As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Pleistocene, focusing on Assemblage and, on occasion, Flake, Debitage, Horizon and Oldowan. His Acheulean research incorporates elements of Hyena, Carnivore, Cave and Paleoanthropology. His Australopithecus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Early Pleistocene, Australopithecus afarensis and Morphometrics.
