What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

Paul H. Harvey mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Ecology, Phylogenetics and Ecology. His Evolutionary biology research integrates issues from Body weight, Phylogenetic comparative methods, Diversification rates and Life history. The various areas that Paul H. Harvey examines in his Zoology study include Taxon, Range, Natural selection and Primate.

His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fecundity and Offspring. Paul H. Harvey has researched Phylogenetics in several fields, including Bioinformatics, Extinction and Phylogenetic tree. In the subject of general Phylogenetic tree, his work in Phylogenetic niche conservatism is often linked to Comparative method, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His most cited work include:

  • The comparative method in evolutionary biology (4878 citations)
  • Procedures for the Analysis of Comparative Data Using Phylogenetically Independent Contrasts (1990 citations)
  • Phylogenetic Analysis and Comparative Data: A Test and Review of Evidence (1891 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. Ecology is closely attributed to Biological dispersal in his work. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Allometry under Zoology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Basal metabolic rate.

The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Adaptation, Biological evolution and Phylogenetic comparative methods. His study on Phylogenetics is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Extinction. Paul H. Harvey integrates Brain size with Body size in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (33.09%)
  • Zoology (24.91%)
  • Evolutionary biology (21.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2021)?

  • Ecology (33.09%)
  • Evolutionary biology (21.19%)
  • Zoology (24.91%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Phylogenetics and Genetic algorithm. His study in the field of Species richness, Global biodiversity, Range and Ecology is also linked to topics like Brain size. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Adaptation, Natural selection, Phylogenetic comparative methods and Gene.

His research in Phylogenetic comparative methods intersects with topics in Statistical physics, Phylogenetic niche conservatism, Correlation and Bioinformatics. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Population density, Frugivore and Primate. In his work, Generalized least squares is strongly intertwined with Phylogenetic tree, which is a subfield of Phylogenetics.

Between 1999 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phylogenetic Analysis and Comparative Data: A Test and Review of Evidence (1891 citations)
  • Primate ecology and social organization (923 citations)
  • Testing macro–evolutionary models using incomplete molecular phylogenies (690 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

His primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Ecology, Primate and Sexual dimorphism. Paul H. Harvey interconnects Phylogenetic comparative methods and Phylogenetics in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology. The various areas that Paul H. Harvey examines in his Phylogenetic comparative methods study include Phylogenetic niche conservatism, Correlation and Evolutionary ecology.

His studies deal with areas such as Phylogenetic tree, Bioinformatics, Generalized least squares and Type I and type II errors as well as Phylogenetics. He combines subjects such as Neocortex and Natural selection with his study of Zoology. His Primate research incorporates themes from Population density, Sexual selection and Sex ratio.
