Her primary scientific interests are in Opsin, Cichlid, Ecology, Evolutionary biology and Genetics. The Opsin study combines topics in areas such as Gene duplication, Vertebrate, Gene and Killifish. Her Cichlid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Speciation, Molecular evolution, Heteropatric speciation, Nile tilapia and Sympatric speciation.
Her Ecology research incorporates elements of Allopatric speciation, Parapatric speciation, Ecological speciation and Incipient speciation. She combines subjects such as Color vision and Regulation of gene expression with her study of Evolutionary biology. Karen L. Carleton has researched Genetics in several fields, including Tilapia and Oreochromis.
Her main research concerns Opsin, Cichlid, Evolutionary biology, Ecology and Gene. Her research integrates issues of Color vision, Phylogenetics and Coral reef fish in her study of Opsin. The concepts of her Cichlid study are interwoven with issues in Gene expression, Speciation, Lineage, Regulation of gene expression and Genetic architecture.
Her biological study deals with issues like Adaptation, which deal with fields such as Parallel evolution. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sensory system, Cone Opsin and Phylogenetic tree. Her Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tilapia and Oreochromis.
Karen L. Carleton mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Opsin, Cichlid, Adaptation and Gene. Her Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rhodopsin, Vertebrate and Gene conversion, Genome. Her Opsin study combines topics in areas such as Genetics, Photopigment, Quantitative trait locus, Coral reef fish and Visual pigments.
Her Cichlid research includes themes of Ecology, Phenotype, Genetic architecture, Adaptive radiation and Vision in fishes. Her Adaptation research integrates issues from Damselfish and Foraging. Her work in the fields of Gene, such as Genetic variation, Locus and Transposable element, overlaps with other areas such as Indel and Expression quantitative trait loci.
Karen L. Carleton spends much of her time researching Opsin, Evolutionary biology, Cichlid, Adaptation and Photopigment. Her work carried out in the field of Opsin brings together such families of science as Color vision and Coral reef fish. Her research in Color vision intersects with topics in Rhodopsin, Vertebrate, Recurrent evolution and Pattern recognition.
Her studies deal with areas such as Phylogenetics and Visual pigments as well as Evolutionary biology. Her Cichlid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adaptive radiation, Genome, Vision in fishes and Phenotypic plasticity. The subject of her Adaptation research is within the realm of Ecology.
