Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Cichlid

Cichlid, Ecology, Adaptive radiation, Evolutionary biology and Speciation are his primary areas of study. He interconnects Zoology, Sympatric speciation, Monophyly and Flock in the investigation of issues within Cichlid. The Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Pseudotropheus zebra and Reproductive isolation.

His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Allopatric speciation, Biological dispersal, Genetic diversity and Haplochromine. George F. Turner works mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, limiting it down to concerns involving Phylogenetic tree and, occasionally, Introgression. He works mostly in the field of Speciation, limiting it down to topics relating to Panmixia and, in certain cases, Fixation, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • A Model of Sympatric Speciation by Sexual Selection (300 citations)
  • Attack Abatement: A Model for Group Protection by Combined Avoidance and Dilution (290 citations)
  • How many species of cichlid fishes are there in African lakes (266 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cichlid, Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology and Adaptive radiation. His study in Cichlid is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Allopatric speciation, Mate choice, Sympatric speciation and Reproductive isolation. His studies deal with areas such as Pseudotropheus and Fishery as well as Ecology.

His Zoology research includes elements of Pseudotropheus zebra, Microsatellite and Oreochromis. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genetic Speciation, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Vertebrate. His studies in Adaptive radiation integrate themes in fields like Gene flow and Astatotilapia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cichlid (60.56%)
  • Ecology (57.75%)
  • Zoology (32.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Cichlid (60.56%)
  • Oreochromis (11.27%)
  • Zoology (32.39%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cichlid, Oreochromis, Zoology, Evolutionary biology and Nile tilapia. His Cichlid research incorporates themes from Ecology, Habitat, Sympatric speciation, Adaptive radiation and Hybrid. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tilapia and Introduced species in addition to Oreochromis.

The various areas that George F. Turner examines in his Zoology study include Rocky shore, Maylandia and Oreochromis korogwe. As a member of one scientific family, George F. Turner mostly works in the field of Evolutionary biology, focusing on Vertebrate and, on occasion, Genome. His research in Nile tilapia intersects with topics in Biodiversity, Oreochromis jipe, Fishery and Threatened species.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whole-genome sequences of Malawi cichlids reveal multiple radiations interconnected by gene flow. (121 citations)
  • Towards complete and error-free genome assemblies of all vertebrate species (55 citations)
  • Whole Genome Sequences Of Malawi Cichlids Reveal Multiple Radiations Interconnected By Gene Flow (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Cichlid, Vertebrate, Evolutionary biology, Oreochromis and Phylogenetic tree. His Vertebrate research integrates issues from Biodiversity conservation, Gene flow, Adaptive radiation and Genomics. George F. Turner has researched Adaptive radiation in several fields, including Hybrid swarm, Founder effect, Speciation and Astatotilapia.

His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genome, Reference genome and Phylogenetics. Zoology, Tilapia and Oreochromis esculentus is closely connected to Introduced species in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Oreochromis. George F. Turner combines subjects such as Generalist and specialist species, Mitochondrial DNA and Introgression with his study of Phylogenetic tree.
