Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Archaeology

José María Bermúdez de Castro mostly deals with Pleistocene, Paleontology, Evolutionary biology, Early Pleistocene and Homo heidelbergensis. His Pleistocene research includes themes of Ecology, Cave, Hominidae and Sima. His Paleontology research incorporates elements of Fauna, Genus and Peninsula.

His Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Adaptation, Natural selection, Selection and Morphology. José María Bermúdez de Castro interconnects Glacial period, Homo sapiens and Spondylolisthesis in the investigation of issues within Homo heidelbergensis. José María Bermúdez de Castro has included themes like Biostratigraphy and Paleoanthropology in his Homo antecessor study.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide patterns of selection in 230 ancient Eurasians (693 citations)
  • The first hominin of Europe (454 citations)
  • A mitochondrial genome sequence of a hominin from Sima de los Huesos (331 citations)

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

José María Bermúdez de Castro mainly investigates Pleistocene, Archaeology, Paleontology, Homo antecessor and Early Pleistocene. His research in Pleistocene intersects with topics in Evolutionary biology, Human evolution, Cave, Neanderthal and Sima. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Molar, Homo sapiens, Enamel paint and Genus.

His studies examine the connections between Paleontology and genetics, as well as such issues in Hominidae, with regards to Zoology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ecology and Postcrania. The study incorporates disciplines such as Homo erectus and Anatomy in addition to Early Pleistocene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pleistocene (44.44%)
  • Archaeology (27.31%)
  • Paleontology (27.31%)

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

  • Pleistocene (44.44%)
  • Evolutionary biology (20.83%)
  • Homo antecessor (23.15%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Pleistocene, Evolutionary biology, Homo antecessor, Early Pleistocene and Homo sapiens. Pleistocene is the subject of his research, which falls under Archaeology. His work on Cave as part of general Archaeology study is frequently linked to Documentation, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His work deals with themes such as Enamel paint, Neanderthal and Sexual dimorphism, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His Early Pleistocene study introduces a deeper knowledge of Paleontology. Taxonomy, Ecology and Hominidae is closely connected to Homo erectus in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Homo sapiens.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The dental proteome of Homo antecessor (29 citations)
  • Metric and morphological comparison between the Arago (France) and Atapuerca-Sima de los Huesos (Spain) dental samples, and the origin of Neanderthals (17 citations)
  • Author Correction: The dental proteome of Homo antecessor. (10 citations)
