Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Mitochondrial DNA, Genetics, Population genetics and Phylogenetics. John C. Avise works on Evolutionary biology which deals in particular with Genetic algorithm. His Mitochondrial DNA study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Zoology, Peromyscus, Restriction enzyme and Genetic variation.

John C. Avise has researched Population genetics in several fields, including Natal homing, Biological dispersal, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and Population management. John C. Avise has included themes like Haplotype and Phylogenetic tree in his Phylogenetics study. His Phylogeography study incorporates themes from Ecology, Intraspecific competition, Vertebrate, Macroevolution and Conservation genetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular Markers, Natural History, and Evolution (4586 citations)
  • Phylogeography: The History and Formation of Species (4555 citations)
  • Intraspecific Phylogeography: The Mitochondrial DNA Bridge Between Population Genetics and Systematics (2768 citations)

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

John C. Avise mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Ecology, Genetics and Mitochondrial DNA. He studies Evolutionary biology, focusing on Genetic algorithm in particular. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Offspring, Paternal care and Vertebrate.

His Ecology research incorporates themes from Phylogeography and Biological dispersal. His study ties his expertise on Population genetics together with the subject of Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genotype and Peromyscus in addition to Mitochondrial DNA.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (33.54%)
  • Zoology (27.08%)
  • Ecology (27.08%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (33.54%)
  • Ecology (27.08%)
  • Zoology (27.08%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Zoology, Phylogeography and Sexual selection. His Evolutionary biology research focuses on Mitochondrial DNA and how it connects with Microsatellite. His research ties Biological dispersal and Ecology together.

His studies deal with areas such as Selfing and Paternal care as well as Zoology. In his research, Cyprinodontiformes is intimately related to Mangrove rivulus, which falls under the overarching field of Selfing. John C. Avise works mostly in the field of Phylogeography, limiting it down to concerns involving Genetic structure and, occasionally, Gene flow.

Between 2007 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phylogeography: retrospect and prospect (630 citations)
  • Hemiplasy: A New Term in the Lexicon of Phylogenetics (160 citations)
  • Clonality: The Genetics, Ecology, and Evolution of Sexual Abstinence in Vertebrate Animals (114 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genus

John C. Avise focuses on Zoology, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Genetics and Selfing. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Vertebrate, Clade and Paternal care. His study focuses on the intersection of Ecology and fields such as Fecundity with connections in the field of Male pregnancy, Fertility and Demography.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mitochondrial DNA, Phylogeography, Phylogenetics, Systematics and Gene flow in addition to Evolutionary biology. In general Phylogeography, his work in Vicariance is often linked to Pacific herring linking many areas of study. John C. Avise usually deals with Phylogenetics and limits it to topics linked to Phylogenetic tree and Population genetics and Genealogy.
