Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Paleontology

José S. Carrión mostly deals with Ecology, Holocene, Pleistocene, Glacial period and Mediterranean climate. His study involves Vegetation, Deciduous and Range, a branch of Ecology. His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Palynology, Climate change, Paleoclimatology and Paleoecology.

He has included themes like Steppe, Neanderthal and Cave in his Pleistocene study. As part of one scientific family, José S. Carrión deals mainly with the area of Cave, narrowing it down to issues related to the Paleontology, and often Pollen and Pollen zone. In his study, Anthracology, Shrubland, Continental shelf and Juniper is strongly linked to Woodland, which falls under the umbrella field of Mediterranean climate.

His most cited work include:

  • Late survival of Neanderthals at the southernmost extreme of Europe (339 citations)
  • Patterns and processes of Late Quaternary environmental change in a montane region of southwestern Europe (323 citations)
  • Expected trends and surprises in the Lateglacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands. (259 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Vegetation, Holocene, Mediterranean climate and Palynology. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Glacial period and Pleistocene. His work in Vegetation addresses subjects such as Biodiversity, which are connected to disciplines such as Ecosystem.

His study in Holocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Arid, Aridification, Climate change, Peninsula and Physical geography. His Mediterranean climate research incorporates themes from Steppe and Environmental change. While the research belongs to areas of Cave, José S. Carrión spends his time largely on the problem of Neanderthal, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mousterian.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (48.25%)
  • Vegetation (30.77%)
  • Holocene (28.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Physical geography (15.38%)
  • Vegetation (30.77%)
  • Holocene (28.67%)

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

His main research concerns Physical geography, Vegetation, Holocene, Mediterranean climate and Ecology. His Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Range, Bog, Palynology, Ungulate and Woodland. His work in Palynology addresses issues such as Cave, which are connected to fields such as Ecotone.

He combines subjects such as Southern Hemisphere and Ecosystem, Biome with his study of Holocene. The concepts of his Mediterranean climate study are interwoven with issues in Glacial period, Interglacial and Paleoclimatology. José S. Carrión incorporates Ecology and Negative relationship in his research.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Vegetation and climate changes during the last two glacial-interglacial cycles in the western Mediterranean: A new long pollen record from Padul (southern Iberian Peninsula) (30 citations)
  • Millennial-scale cyclical environment and climate variability during the Holocene in the western Mediterranean region deduced from a new multi-proxy analysis from the Padul record (Sierra Nevada, Spain) (22 citations)
  • Holocene climate aridification trend and human impact interrupted by millennial- and centennial-scale climate fluctuations from a new sedimentary record from Padul (Sierra Nevada, southern Iberian Peninsula) (22 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Paleontology

His primary areas of study are Physical geography, Mediterranean climate, Pleistocene, Holocene and Paleoclimatology. His research integrates issues of Glacial period, Stadial and Climate change in his study of Physical geography. His work in Mediterranean climate is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Vegetation.

His Vegetation research incorporates elements of Juniper and Peninsula. His biological study deals with issues like Neanderthal, which deal with fields such as Mousterian, Interglacial, Ecology, Cave and Paleoecology. José S. Carrión has researched Holocene in several fields, including Aridification and Environmental change.
