Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

João Zilhão mainly focuses on Archaeology, Aurignacian, Radiocarbon dating, Middle Paleolithic and Châtelperronian. His work on Painting expands to the thematically related Archaeology. His Aurignacian study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Upper Paleolithic and Chronology.

In Radiocarbon dating, he works on issues like Mousterian, which are connected to Paleoanthropology and Ethnology. Middle Paleolithic is a subfield of Paleontology that João Zilhão studies. João Zilhão has researched Châtelperronian in several fields, including Niche, Taphonomy and Stadial.

His most cited work include:

  • Neanderthal acculturation in western Europe? A critical review of the evidence and its interpretation (443 citations)
  • Symbolic use of marine shells and mineral pigments by Iberian Neandertals (410 citations)
  • U-Series Dating of Paleolithic Art in 11 Caves in Spain (311 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Archaeology, Pleistocene, Cave, Paleontology and Middle Paleolithic. His study in Radiocarbon dating, Chronology, Neanderthal, Cave art and Aurignacian is carried out as part of his Archaeology studies. His work on Acheulean and Marine isotope stage as part of general Pleistocene study is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His studies deal with areas such as Period, Taphonomy and Interglacial as well as Cave. His study in the field of Alluvium is also linked to topics like Stratigraphy. His study in Middle Paleolithic is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mousterian and Before Present.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (113.55%)
  • Pleistocene (51.79%)
  • Cave (40.64%)

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

  • Archaeology (113.55%)
  • Pleistocene (51.79%)
  • Neanderthal (25.10%)

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

João Zilhão spends much of his time researching Archaeology, Pleistocene, Neanderthal, Cave and Taphonomy. His work on Interglacial, Rock shelter and Holocene as part of general Archaeology study is frequently linked to Context and Charcoal, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in Pleistocene intersects with topics in Karst and Radiocarbon dating.

His studies in Neanderthal integrate themes in fields like Range and Cave art. His research in Cave tackles topics such as Painting which are related to areas like Stone circle and Prehistory. His Taphonomy research incorporates themes from Predation and Subsistence agriculture.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Latitudinal gradient in dairy production with the introduction of farming in Atlantic Europe (37 citations)
  • Last Interglacial Iberian Neandertals as fisher-hunter-gatherers (34 citations)
  • Last Interglacial Iberian Neandertals as fisher-hunter-gatherers (34 citations)

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

  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

His primary scientific interests are in Taphonomy, Neanderthal, Archaeology, Subsistence agriculture and Pleistocene. His research on Taphonomy frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Cave. His work carried out in the field of Neanderthal brings together such families of science as Range and Rock shelter.

His Range study combines topics in areas such as Tortoise, Mediterranean climate and Optimal foraging theory, Predation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Old World, Holocene, Middle Stone Age, Interglacial and Mesolithic in addition to Subsistence agriculture. In most of his Ecology studies, his work intersects topics such as Pottery.
