Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

Ian D. Whittington focuses on Zoology, Monogenea, Monophyly, Fishery and Neobenedenia. His Zoology study incorporates themes from Entobdella soleae, Epidermis, Anatomy, Host and Haptor. His work deals with themes such as Coral reef fish, Ecology, Taxonomy and Digenea, which intersect with Monogenea.

His study focuses on the intersection of Digenea and fields such as Cestoda with connections in the field of Turbellaria, Platyhelminths and Flatworm. The various areas that Ian D. Whittington examines in his Monophyly study include Lissamphibia, Sister group, Monopisthocotylea and Polyopisthocotylea. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Fishery, concentrating on Aquaculture and intersecting with Carangidae and Perciformes.

His most cited work include:

  • Host-specificity of monogenean (platyhelminth) parasites: a role for anterior adhesive areas? (113 citations)
  • A revision of Neobenedenia Yamaguti, 1963 (Monogenea: Capsalidae) including a redescription of N. melleni (MacCallum, 1927) Yamaguti, 1963 (88 citations)
  • Phylogenetic analysis of the Monocotylidae (Monogenea) inferred from 28S rDNA sequences. (74 citations)

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

Ian D. Whittington mostly deals with Monogenea, Zoology, Anatomy, Ecology and Gill. His research in Monogenea is mostly concerned with Haptor. His Zoology research includes elements of Neobenedenia, Monophyly, Host, Platyhelminths and Monopisthocotylea.

His study in Monophyly is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Paraphyly and Sister group. His Anatomy research includes themes of Himantura fai, Entobdella soleae, Monocotylidae and Hamulus. His Gill research incorporates themes from Pastinachus, Seriola lalandi and Darkness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Monogenea (84.13%)
  • Zoology (51.92%)
  • Anatomy (48.08%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2018)?

  • Monogenea (84.13%)
  • Anatomy (48.08%)
  • Zoology (51.92%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Monogenea, Anatomy, Zoology, Ecology and Elasmobranchii. His studies in Monogenea integrate themes in fields like Taxonomy, Digenea and Great barrier reef. His work carried out in the field of Anatomy brings together such families of science as Animal ecology, Genus and Haptor.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Reproductive biology, Host, Neobenedenia and Cephalopod in addition to Zoology. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phylogeography, Fishery, Perciformes and Aquaculture. His research investigates the connection with Elasmobranchii and areas like Glaucostegus typus which intersect with concerns in Microbothriidae, Aquatic organisms, Mating, Spermatophore and Sperm.

Between 2009 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Closing the mitochondrial circle on paraphyly of the Monogenea (Platyhelminthes) infers evolution in the diet of parasitic flatworms. (60 citations)
  • Closing the mitochondrial circle on paraphyly of the Monogenea (Platyhelminthes) infers evolution in the diet of parasitic flatworms. (60 citations)
  • An annotated list of parasites (Isopoda, Copepoda, Monogenea, Digenea, Cestoda and Nematoda) collected in groupers (Serranidae, Epinephelinae) in New Caledonia emphasizes parasite biodiversity in coral reef fish. (59 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

His main research concerns Zoology, Digenea, Monogenea, Ecology and Monophyly. Ian D. Whittington interconnects Taxon, Taxonomic rank, Range and Cephalopod in the investigation of issues within Zoology. Ian D. Whittington focuses mostly in the field of Digenea, narrowing it down to topics relating to Coral reef fish and, in certain cases, Species diversity, Isopoda, Serranidae and Biodiversity.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Coral reef, Species richness and Lutjanidae. His study on Biogeography is often connected to Gondwana as part of broader study in Ecology. His Monophyly study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sister group, Neobenedenia, Cestoda, Paraphyly and Monopisthocotylea.
