Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Genus

His main research concerns Ecology, Pleistocene, Paleontology, Cave and Herbivore. Hervé Bocherens frequently studies issues relating to δ13C and Ecology. His Pleistocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ice age, Ancient DNA and Human migration.

His study in the field of Rift valley is also linked to topics like Carbonate, Isotopes of oxygen, Negative correlation and East African Rift. His studies deal with areas such as Radiocarbon dating and Extinction as well as Cave. The Herbivore study combines topics in areas such as Last Glacial Maximum, Physiology and Roe deer.

His most cited work include:

  • A new hominid from the Upper Miocene of Chad, Central Africa (772 citations)
  • Trophic Level Isotopic Enrichment of Carbon and Nitrogen in Bone Collagen: Case Studies from Recent and Ancient Terrestrial Ecosystems (585 citations)
  • The genetic history of Ice Age Europe (434 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Pleistocene, Archaeology, Cave and Paleontology. As a part of the same scientific family, Hervé Bocherens mostly works in the field of Ecology, focusing on δ13C and, on occasion, δ18O. Hervé Bocherens focuses mostly in the field of Pleistocene, narrowing it down to matters related to Ancient DNA and, in some cases, Evolutionary biology.

In general Archaeology, his work in Radiocarbon dating and Holocene is often linked to Context linking many areas of study. His work on Diagenesis as part of general Paleontology research is frequently linked to Carbonate, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Herbivore research incorporates themes from Niche differentiation, Mammal and Mammoth.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (49.26%)
  • Pleistocene (26.67%)
  • Archaeology (18.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Pleistocene (26.67%)
  • Ecology (49.26%)
  • Paleoecology (10.00%)

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

Hervé Bocherens mainly investigates Pleistocene, Ecology, Paleoecology, Cave and Ancient DNA. His Beringia, Cave bear, Megafauna and Woolly mammoth study in the realm of Pleistocene interacts with subjects such as Context. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Glacial period and Holocene.

His Cave study combines topics in areas such as Domestication, Herbivore and Fauna. His Ancient DNA research includes elements of Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Canis. His study looks at the relationship between Physical geography and fields such as δ13C, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large-scale mitogenomic analysis of the phylogeography of the Late Pleistocene cave bear (38 citations)
  • Stable isotopes reveal patterns of diet and mobility in the last Neandertals and first modern humans in Europe (25 citations)
  • Ancient DNA suggests modern wolves trace their origin to a Late Pleistocene expansion from Beringia. (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Genus

Hervé Bocherens mainly focuses on Pleistocene, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Ancient DNA and Cave. His Pleistocene research includes themes of Range and Paleoecology. His Ecology study focuses on Foraging in particular.

His Ancient DNA research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology and Canis. The various areas that he examines in his Cave study include Ecological niche and Herbivore. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Omnivore, δ15N, Trophic level, Human evolution and Forb.
