Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Phylogenetics, Ecology, Sponge, Evolutionary biology and Zoology. His studies in Phylogenetics integrate themes in fields like Taxon, Myosin and Phylogenetic tree. In his study, Vicariance, Incipient speciation, Genetic divergence and Ecosystem is inextricably linked to Biological dispersal, which falls within the broad field of Ecology.

His work in the fields of Sponge, such as Demosponge, overlaps with other areas such as Organic fraction. He focuses mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Mitochondrial DNA and, in certain cases, Phylogenetic reconstruction, DNA barcoding and Hexacorallia. The Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Sister group, Molecular phylogenetics, Ctenophora, Most recent common ancestor and Monophyly.

His most cited work include:

  • Resolving Difficult Phylogenetic Questions: Why More Sequences Are Not Enough (724 citations)
  • Phylogenomics Revives Traditional Views on Deep Animal Relationships (551 citations)
  • Slow mitochondrial DNA sequence evolution in the Anthozoa (Cnidaria). (448 citations)

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

Gert Wörheide mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Sponge, Ecology, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Paleontology, Biomineralization, Genome, Genomics and DNA sequencing. His work deals with themes such as Fauna and Living fossil, which intersect with Sponge.

His Phylogenetics research integrates issues from Zoology and Phylum. Gert Wörheide has researched Zoology in several fields, including Clade and Monophyly. The various areas that Gert Wörheide examines in his Phylogenetic tree study include Taxon and Genus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (29.08%)
  • Sponge (25.90%)
  • Ecology (25.90%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (29.08%)
  • Sponge (25.90%)
  • Ecology (25.90%)

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

Gert Wörheide focuses on Evolutionary biology, Sponge, Ecology, Phylogenetics and Genome. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sister group, Clade, Comparative genomics, Genomics and Gene. His Sister group research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phylogenomics and Ctenophora.

Gert Wörheide interconnects Zoology, Microbiome, Fauna and Environmental chemistry in the investigation of issues within Sponge. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxon, Phylum, Genetic diversity and Phylogenetic tree. His work carried out in the field of Phylogenetic tree brings together such families of science as Systematics, Taxonomy and Mitochondrial DNA.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Large and Consistent Phylogenomic Dataset Supports Sponges as the Sister Group to All Other Animals (282 citations)
  • Improved Modeling of Compositional Heterogeneity Supports Sponges as Sister to All Other Animals. (139 citations)
  • Dating early animal evolution using phylogenomic data. (69 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics, Sponge and Gene. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sister group, Ctenophora, Genome, Placozoa and Phylogenomics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetic marker, Taxonomy and DNA sequencing in addition to Phylogenetic tree.

His Phylogenetics research incorporates elements of Phylum and Rickettsiales. Gert Wörheide is interested in Demosponge, which is a field of Sponge. His research investigates the connection between Demosponge and topics such as Ecology that intersect with issues in Indian ocean.
