Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Paleontology

Joel Cracraft focuses on Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Biogeography, Endemism and Neoaves. His study on Evolutionary biology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Reproductive isolation. In general Ecology, his work in Biodiversity and Environmental change is often linked to Diversification, Most recent common ancestor and Plate tectonics linking many areas of study.

The various areas that Joel Cracraft examines in his Endemism study include Taxon and Amazon rainforest. His Neoaves research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Corvoidea, Palaeognathae and Sylvioidea. Within one scientific family, Joel Cracraft focuses on topics pertaining to Coalescent theory under Palaeognathae, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Clade.

His most cited work include:

  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Species Concepts and Speciation Analysis (1098 citations)
  • Species Concepts and Speciation Analysis (1098 citations)

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

His main research concerns Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Biogeography, Zoology and Taxon. Evolutionary biology is closely attributed to Systematics in his work. His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Biological dispersal, which are linked to Ecosystem.

Biogeography is a primary field of his research addressed under Paleontology. His work on Genus, Passerine and Old World as part of general Zoology research is frequently linked to Monophyly and Cytochrome b, bridging the gap between disciplines. With his scientific publications, his incorporates both Taxon and Clade.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (44.60%)
  • Ecology (30.94%)
  • Biogeography (21.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (44.60%)
  • Ecology (30.94%)
  • Biogeography (21.58%)

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

Joel Cracraft mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Biogeography, Biodiversity and Biological dispersal. His research on Evolutionary biology often connects related areas such as Taxon. His work in Taxon addresses issues such as Subspecies, which are connected to fields such as Genus.

Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Classics. His Biogeography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Systematics and Gene flow. Biodiversity is closely attributed to Endemism in his study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • How Many Kinds of Birds Are There and Why Does It Matter (100 citations)
  • Earth history and the passerine superradiation (77 citations)
  • Dense sampling of bird diversity increases power of comparative genomics. (34 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Paleontology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Biogeography, Species diversity and Taxonomy. As a part of the same scientific family, Joel Cracraft mostly works in the field of Ecology, focusing on Biological dispersal and, on occasion, Passerine and Extinction event. His Evolutionary biology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Selection.

His Biogeography research includes elements of Genetic algorithm, Allopatric speciation, Ecology and Conceptual framework. His Species diversity study incorporates themes from Taxonomic rank, Intraspecific competition and Species richness. His research integrates issues of Classics and Rebuttal in his study of Taxonomy.
