Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Gene
  • Ecology

Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Botany, Phylogenetic tree and Genetics are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Taxon, Paleontology and Genome, Plant evolution. His Clade and Lineage study in the realm of Phylogenetics interacts with subjects such as Diversification.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Saxifragales and Monophyly. Within one scientific family, Douglas E. Soltis focuses on topics pertaining to Subfamily under Phylogenetic tree, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Apiales. He focuses mostly in the field of Genetics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Tragopogon and, in certain cases, Tragopogon mirus.

His most cited work include:

  • An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG II (4749 citations)
  • Starch Gel Electrophoresis of Ferns: A Compilation of Grinding Buffers, Gel and Electrode Buffers, and Staining Schedules (1360 citations)
  • Ancestral polyploidy in seed plants and angiosperms (1297 citations)

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

Douglas E. Soltis mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Botany, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Genetics. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Lineage, Plant evolution, Genomics, Coalescent theory and Phylogenomics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Chloroplast DNA and Monophyly.

His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology, Nuclear gene and DNA sequencing. His research on Phylogenetic tree frequently links to adjacent areas such as Taxon. His Genetics research focuses on Tragopogon and how it connects with Tragopogon mirus and Tragopogon miscellus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (48.89%)
  • Botany (36.49%)
  • Phylogenetics (35.52%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (48.89%)
  • Phylogenetics (35.52%)
  • Clade (24.93%)

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

Douglas E. Soltis focuses on Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Clade, Phylogenetic tree and Ecology. Douglas E. Soltis interconnects Tree of life, Polyploid, Plant evolution, Coalescent theory and Gene duplication in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology. His research integrates issues of Species richness, Genome, Nuclear gene and Plastid in his study of Phylogenetics.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Botany, Locus, Computational biology and DNA sequencing in addition to Genome. His study in the field of Phylogenomics and Asterids also crosses realms of Diversification and Context. Douglas E. Soltis has included themes like Sampling, Tree, Ecological niche and Taxon in his Phylogenetic tree study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Origin of angiosperms and the puzzle of the Jurassic gap (146 citations)
  • Evolutionary history of the angiosperm flora of China (127 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Phylogenetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Phylogenetic tree and Clade. His Phylogenetics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology, Species richness, Terpene and Gene family. His work deals with themes such as Eudicots, Population genetics and Reference genome, which intersect with Evolutionary biology.

The concepts of his Genome study are interwoven with issues in Gene duplication, Computational biology and DNA sequencing. His Phylogenetic tree study combines topics in areas such as Nepetalactone, Nepeta, Biodiversity and Botany. His Clade research incorporates themes from Plastid, Salvia, Data science and Genus.
