Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • World War II

His primary scientific interests are in Pleistocene, Archaeology, Homo sapiens, Biological dispersal and Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Glacial period, Human evolution and Ethnology as well as Pleistocene. In the field of Archaeology, his study on Stone tool and Middle Paleolithic overlaps with subjects such as South asia and Context.

Michael D. Petraglia has researched Homo sapiens in several fields, including Archaeological record, Middle Stone Age, Ancient DNA, Paleoanthropology and Rainforest. His research integrates issues of Mousterian, Indigenous, Archaeological evidence and Peninsula in his study of Biological dispersal. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Prehistory and Soil science.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological consequences of human niche construction: Examining long-term anthropogenic shaping of global species distributions (321 citations)
  • Middle Paleolithic assemblages from the Indian subcontinent before and after the Toba super-eruption. (227 citations)
  • Middle Paleolithic assemblages from the Indian subcontinent before and after the Toba super-eruption. (227 citations)

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

His main research concerns Archaeology, Pleistocene, Homo sapiens, Ecology and Peninsula. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Paleoecology, Ethnology, Paleoanthropology and Cave. His Homo sapiens study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rainforest, Assemblage, Biological dispersal and Middle Stone Age.

His Biological dispersal study incorporates themes from Human evolution and Archaeological record. His study in the field of Zooarchaeology, Habitat and Fauna is also linked to topics like Context. His studies examine the connections between Peninsula and genetics, as well as such issues in Arid, with regards to Period.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (70.53%)
  • Pleistocene (61.44%)
  • Homo sapiens (42.95%)

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

  • Pleistocene (61.44%)
  • Archaeology (70.53%)
  • Homo sapiens (42.95%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Pleistocene, Archaeology, Homo sapiens, Ecology and Holocene. His studies deal with areas such as Peninsula, Taphonomy, Lithic technology and East Asia as well as Pleistocene. His Archaeology study deals with Biological dispersal intersecting with Paleoecology and Environmental change.

The various areas that he examines in his Homo sapiens study include Rainforest, Assemblage, Ethnology and Herding. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Megafauna and Ancient DNA. His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Arid and Rock art.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Human occupation of northern India spans the Toba super-eruption ~74,000 years ago (110 citations)
  • Human occupation of northern India spans the Toba super-eruption ~74,000 years ago (110 citations)
  • Human occupation of northern India spans the Toba super-eruption ~74,000 years ago (110 citations)

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

  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • World War II

Michael D. Petraglia mostly deals with Pleistocene, Ecology, Archaeology, Homo sapiens and Middle Stone Age. His research in Pleistocene intersects with topics in Climate change and East Asia. In the subject of general Ecology, his work in Agriculture and Pastoralism is often linked to Sub saharan and Human genetic variation, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

He studies Archaeology, focusing on Stone tool in particular. The Homo sapiens study combines topics in areas such as Paleoanthropology, Rainforest, Biological dispersal, Microlith and Paleoecology. His research investigates the link between Middle Stone Age and topics such as Later Stone Age that cross with problems in Panga, Marine Isotope Stage 5, Demic diffusion, Ecosystem diversity and Taphonomy.
