Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Extinction
  • Artificial intelligence

Michael J. Hickerson mainly investigates Ecology, Phylogeography, Evolutionary biology, Coalescent theory and Approximate Bayesian computation. His research integrates issues of Biological dispersal and Biogeography in his study of Phylogeography. His research investigates the connection with Evolutionary biology and areas like Population genetics which intersect with concerns in Clade and Lineage.

His study in Coalescent theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetic Speciation, Contrast, Mitochondrial DNA, Divergence and Genetic divergence. His Approximate Bayesian computation study also includes

  • Divergence and related Bayes' theorem, Genetic variation and Genetics,
  • Bayesian probability that intertwine with fields like Demographic history. Michael J. Hickerson has included themes like Species richness and Endemism in his Climate change study.

His most cited work include:

  • Stability Predicts Genetic Diversity in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest Hotspot (752 citations)
  • Phylogeography's past, present, and future: 10 years after Avise, 2000 (446 citations)
  • DNA Barcoding Will Often Fail to Discover New Animal Species over Broad Parameter Space (328 citations)

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

Michael J. Hickerson mostly deals with Ecology, Coalescent theory, Phylogeography, Evolutionary biology and Approximate Bayesian computation. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biological dispersal and Genetic diversity. Michael J. Hickerson has researched Coalescent theory in several fields, including Effective population size, Population size, Bayesian probability, Mutation rate and Demographic history.

His studies deal with areas such as Taxon, Lineage, Last Glacial Maximum and Habitat as well as Phylogeography. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genetic Speciation, Contrast, Population genetics, Hybrid zone and Genetic divergence. His study looks at the relationship between Approximate Bayesian computation and fields such as Divergence, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (100.00%)
  • Coalescent theory (61.72%)
  • Phylogeography (51.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2020)?

  • Ecology (100.00%)
  • Biodiversity (38.28%)
  • Insular biogeography (14.06%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Biodiversity, Insular biogeography, Phylogeography and Gene flow. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetic diversity and Demographic history. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Community and Ecology, Evolutionary ecology.

His Insular biogeography study is associated with Species richness. His studies in Phylogeography integrate themes in fields like Floodplain, Habitat, Climate change and Amazonian, Amazon rainforest. His Gene flow study combines topics in areas such as Biological dispersal, Oceanography, Ocean current and Mode.

Between 2018 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Unifying macroecology and macroevolution to answer fundamental questions about biodiversity (12 citations)
  • Unifying macroecology and macroevolution to answer fundamental questions about biodiversity (12 citations)
  • An integrated model of population genetics and community ecology (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Extinction
  • Artificial intelligence

Michael J. Hickerson spends much of his time researching Biodiversity, Ecology, Center, Community and Biota. His study ties his expertise on Macroevolution together with the subject of Ecology. His Center investigation overlaps with other areas such as Work, Environmental resource management, Insular biogeography and Foundation.
