Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Extinction

J. Tyler Faith mainly investigates Ecology, Pleistocene, Taphonomy, Middle Stone Age and Holocene. His Ecology research includes themes of Structural basin and Biological dispersal. His Pleistocene research includes elements of Climate change, Extinction and Radiocarbon dating.

His Taphonomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carnivore, Hyena and Zooarchaeology. His research in Middle Stone Age intersects with topics in Homo sapiens and Last Glacial Maximum. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Holocene, Before Present, Population size, Carboniferous and Community is strongly linked to Paleoecology.

His most cited work include:

  • Synchronous extinction of North America's Pleistocene mammals (115 citations)
  • Skeletal element abundances in archaeofaunal assemblages: economic utility, sample size, and assessment of carcass transport strategies (99 citations)
  • Climate change frames debate over the extinction of megafauna in Sahul (Pleistocene Australia-New Guinea) (98 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Pleistocene, Paleontology, Middle Stone Age and Archaeology. His Ecology research integrates issues from Extinction, Homo sapiens and Holocene. His research investigates the connection with Extinction and areas like Mammal which intersect with concerns in Predation and Taphonomy.

His studies in Pleistocene integrate themes in fields like Paleoecology, Quaternary, Last Glacial Maximum and Fauna. His Paleoecology study incorporates themes from Taxon and Range. His studies deal with areas such as Structural basin, Later Stone Age, Biological dispersal and Middle Paleolithic as well as Middle Stone Age.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.36%)
  • Pleistocene (47.33%)
  • Paleontology (23.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Ecology (63.36%)
  • Pleistocene (47.33%)
  • Climate change (16.03%)

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

J. Tyler Faith mostly deals with Ecology, Pleistocene, Climate change, Context and Herbivore. His study connects Homo sapiens and Ecology. His Homo sapiens research incorporates elements of Biodiversity and Extinction.

His Pleistocene study combines topics in areas such as Hylochoerus, Molar, Suidae, Grassland and Physical geography. He focuses mostly in the field of Herbivore, narrowing it down to topics relating to Resource and, in certain cases, Mammal. The Mammal study combines topics in areas such as Rift and Middle Stone Age.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate and ecology of the palaeo-Agulhas Plain from stable carbon and oxygen isotopes in bovid tooth enamel from Nelson Bay Cave, South Africa (9 citations)
  • The uncertain case for human-driven extinctions prior to Homo sapiens (5 citations)
  • Increased Ecological Resource Variability during a Critical Transition in Hominin Evolution (4 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Extinction

His primary areas of study are Pleistocene, Climate change, Mammal, Physical geography and Middle Stone Age. His studies deal with areas such as Cave, Paleoclimatology and Holocene as well as Pleistocene. The various areas that J. Tyler Faith examines in his Mammal study include Resource, Human evolution, Herbivore and Acheulean.

His Human evolution study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology and Homo sapiens. In the field of Ecology, his study on Biodiversity overlaps with subjects such as Context. J. Tyler Faith combines subjects such as Ecosystem, Forcing, Orbital forcing and Megadrought with his study of Physical geography.
