Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

His primary areas of study are Zoology, Ecology, Snail, Martinique and Galba truncatula. His Zoology research incorporates elements of Taxon and Intermediate host. He integrates Ecology and Genetic variability in his studies.

His Snail study incorporates themes from Trematoda, Old World and Biomphalaria glabrata. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Thiaridae, Marisa cornuarietis and Ribeiroia. His work carried out in the field of Galba truncatula brings together such families of science as Basommatophora, Subgenus and Type species.

His most cited work include:

  • High genetic variance in life-history strategies within invasive populations by way of multiple introductions (201 citations)
  • European Lymnaeidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda), intermediate hosts of trematodiases, based on nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS-2 sequences. (181 citations)
  • Evolutionary Relationships and Biogeography of Biomphalaria (Gastropoda: Planorbidae) with Implications Regarding Its Role as Host of the Human Bloodfluke, Schistosoma mansoni (140 citations)

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

Ecology, Snail, Zoology, Biomphalaria glabrata and Schistosoma mansoni are his primary areas of study. Ecology and Martinique are two areas of study in which Jean-Pierre Pointier engages in interdisciplinary research. The various areas that Jean-Pierre Pointier examines in his Snail study include Hepatica, Fasciola hepatica and Botany, Interspecific competition.

In the field of Zoology, his study on Lymnaeidae, Galba truncatula and Biomphalaria overlaps with subjects such as Genetic variability. As part of the same scientific family, Jean-Pierre Pointier usually focuses on Biomphalaria glabrata, concentrating on Planorbidae and intersecting with Type locality. His research in Schistosoma mansoni intersects with topics in Trematoda, Host and Alkaline phosphatase.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.75%)
  • Snail (35.25%)
  • Zoology (32.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Ecology (64.75%)
  • Zoology (32.79%)
  • Genetic diversity (9.84%)

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

Jean-Pierre Pointier focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Genetic diversity, Freshwater snail and Fasciola hepatica. Introduced species and Snail are the subjects of his Ecology studies. His studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Natural population growth and Directional selection.

Jean-Pierre Pointier has researched Genetic diversity in several fields, including Population genetics and Habitat. His Freshwater snail research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bulinus truncatus, Lymnaeidae, Threatened species and Potamopyrgus antipodarum. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Fasciola hepatica, Livestock is strongly linked to Mollusca.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Variation in habitat connectivity generates positive correlations between species and genetic diversity in a metacommunity (33 citations)
  • Fasciola hepatica in Cuba: compatibility of different isolates with two intermediate snail hosts, Galba cubensis and Pseudosuccinea columella. (29 citations)
  • Testing metapopulation dynamics using genetic, demographic and ecological data. (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Selfing, Genetic diversity, Metapopulation and Zoology. His Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Metacommunity. Jean-Pierre Pointier works mostly in the field of Selfing, limiting it down to concerns involving Mating system and, occasionally, Animal ecology, Facultative, Life history theory and Outcrossing.

Jean-Pierre Pointier interconnects Evolutionary biology, Biodiversity, Alpha diversity and Population genetics in the investigation of issues within Genetic diversity. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Waterborne diseases and Zoology. His studies deal with areas such as Galba cubensis, Outbreak and Snail as well as Pseudosuccinea columella.
