Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Paleontology

Hugues-Alexandre Blain focuses on Ecology, Pleistocene, Archaeology, Paleontology and Cave. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Biostratigraphy and Cenozoic. A large part of his Pleistocene studies is devoted to Early Pleistocene.

He has researched Archaeology in several fields, including Vertebrate paleontology and Sequence. The Paleontology study combines topics in areas such as Ecological succession and Fauna. His Cave study deals with Homo antecessor intersecting with Range, Period and Seasonality.

His most cited work include:

  • One million years of cultural evolution in a stable environment at Atapuerca (Burgos, Spain) (197 citations)
  • Biochronology of Spanish Quaternary small vertebrate faunas (158 citations)
  • Long-term climate record inferred from early-middle Pleistocene amphibian and squamate reptile assemblages at the Gran Dolina Cave, Atapuerca, Spain (134 citations)

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

Hugues-Alexandre Blain mostly deals with Pleistocene, Ecology, Paleontology, Archaeology and Early Pleistocene. His work deals with themes such as Holocene, Glacial period, Cave and Peninsula, which intersect with Pleistocene. His Cave research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microtus, Period, Woodland and Homo antecessor.

His study brings together the fields of Quaternary and Ecology. His work on Neanderthal, Assemblage and Prehistory as part of his general Archaeology study is frequently connected to Vertebrate, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Hugues-Alexandre Blain combines subjects such as Ecological succession, Paleoecology and Sima with his study of Early Pleistocene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pleistocene (39.51%)
  • Ecology (34.57%)
  • Paleontology (33.95%)

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

  • Pleistocene (39.51%)
  • Ecology (34.57%)
  • Archaeology (27.78%)

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

Pleistocene, Ecology, Archaeology, Fauna and Early Pleistocene are his primary areas of study. His Pleistocene study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glacial period, Cave, Holocene, Peninsula and Paleoecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Strix aluco, Upper Paleolithic and Taphonomy in addition to Cave.

Hugues-Alexandre Blain interconnects Biological dispersal and Quaternary in the investigation of issues within Ecology. In the field of Archaeology, his study on Assemblage and Villafranchian overlaps with subjects such as Western europe. Paleontology covers he research in Early Pleistocene.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Towards a Middle Pleistocene terrestrial climate reconstruction based on herpetofaunal assemblages from the Iberian Peninsula: State of the art and perspectives (17 citations)
  • The Early Pleistocene herpetofauna of Rivoli Veronese (Northern Italy) as evidence for humid and forested glacial phases in the Gelasian of Southern Alps (13 citations)
  • Fossil amphibians and reptiles from Tegelen (Province of Limburg) and the early Pleistocene palaeoclimate of The Netherlands (12 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Paleontology

Hugues-Alexandre Blain focuses on Pleistocene, Ecology, Early Pleistocene, Peninsula and Glacial period. His work carried out in the field of Pleistocene brings together such families of science as Open forest, Human evolution and Quaternary. Ecology is closely attributed to Holocene in his research.

His Early Pleistocene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Natrix, Subtropics, Anguidae and Lacerta. His Peninsula research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mediterranean climate and Last Glacial Maximum. Hugues-Alexandre Blain has included themes like Range, Biodiversity and Physical geography in his Glacial period study.
