Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Zoology, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. He combines subjects such as Sister group, Siboglinidae and Monophyly with his study of Zoology. His Monophyly study incorporates themes from Caudofoveata, Aplacophora, Conchifera and Taxon.

Kenneth M. Halanych has included themes like Phylogeography, Biological dispersal, Genetic structure and Species complex in his Ecology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Lophotrochozoa, Phylum, Ambulacraria and Platyzoa in addition to Evolutionary biology. His study involves Phylogenomics and Molecular phylogenetics, a branch of Phylogenetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Evidence from 18S ribosomal DNA that the lophophorates are protostome animals (450 citations)
  • The ctenophore genome and the evolutionary origins of neural systems (430 citations)
  • The New View of Animal Phylogeny (370 citations)

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

Kenneth M. Halanych spends much of his time researching Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. His Ecology research includes elements of Phylogeography, Biological dispersal, Genetic structure and Siboglinidae. His Zoology research incorporates themes from Sister group, Monophyly and Molecular phylogenetics.

His work in Evolutionary biology addresses issues such as Annelid, which are connected to fields such as Phyllodocida. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Taxon and Phylum. His research investigates the link between Phylogenetic tree and topics such as Ctenophora that cross with problems in Placozoa.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (37.61%)
  • Zoology (38.53%)
  • Evolutionary biology (30.73%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (30.73%)
  • Zoology (38.53%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (30.28%)

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

Kenneth M. Halanych mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Phylogenetic tree, Ecology and Phylogenetics. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gene duplication, Genome, Gene, Mitochondrial DNA and Monophyly. His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Onuphidae and Emydidae.

His Phylogenetic tree research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genome size, Cytoglobin, Solenogastres and Gene family. His study in the field of Biodiversity also crosses realms of Geography. His Phylogenetics research includes elements of Spionidae, Subgenus, Morphology, Caudofoveata and Parapodia.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phylogenomics offers resolution of major tunicate relationships. (39 citations)
  • New data from Monoplacophora and a carefully-curated dataset resolve molluscan relationships. (22 citations)
  • Challenging Dogma Concerning Biogeographic Patterns of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Phylogenetics, Biodiversity and Taxon. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Sister group, Clade, Monophyly, Genome and Species richness. His study focuses on the intersection of Monophyly and fields such as Mitochondrial DNA with connections in the field of Phylogenetic tree, Brittle star, Most recent common ancestor and Ribosomal RNA.

His work on Range as part of general Ecology research is often related to Leptoxis ampla, thus linking different fields of science. His Deep sea research extends to the thematically linked field of Phylogenetics. His Caudofoveata study introduces a deeper knowledge of Zoology.
