Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Genus
  • Paleontology
  • Ecology

Paul M. Barrett mostly deals with Paleontology, Cretaceous, Ecology, Ornithischia and Theropoda. His Paleontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cartography, Biodiversity and Fauna. His Cretaceous study combines topics in areas such as Geologic record and Gondwana.

His Ecology research incorporates themes from Phylogenetics and Yixian Formation, Mesozoic. A large part of his Theropoda studies is devoted to Saurischia. His studies in Saurischia integrate themes in fields like Enantiornithes, Jiufotang Formation, Microraptor, Feathered dinosaur and Jehol Biota.

His most cited work include:

  • An exceptionally preserved Lower Cretaceous ecosystem (481 citations)
  • An exceptionally preserved Lower Cretaceous ecosystem (481 citations)
  • Dinosaur diversity and the rock record (158 citations)

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

Paul M. Barrett mainly investigates Paleontology, Cretaceous, Taxon, Ecology and Ornithischia. His research investigates the link between Paleontology and topics such as Autapomorphy that cross with problems in Holotype. His Cretaceous study incorporates themes from Gondwana, Biodiversity and Yixian Formation.

Paul M. Barrett usually deals with Taxon and limits it to topics linked to Clade and Evolutionary biology. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Diversity. In his work, Postcrania is strongly intertwined with Anatomy, which is a subfield of Ornithischia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (50.57%)
  • Cretaceous (21.67%)
  • Taxon (22.43%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Paleontology (50.57%)
  • Taxon (22.43%)
  • Evolutionary biology (9.51%)

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

Paul M. Barrett spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Taxon, Evolutionary biology, Ecology and Mesozoic. His research ties Fauna and Paleontology together. His work focuses on many connections between Taxon and other disciplines, such as Zoology, that overlap with his field of interest in Postcrania, Upper Elliot Formation and Ecomorphology.

His studies deal with areas such as Convergent evolution, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Integumentary system and Sauropodomorpha as well as Evolutionary biology. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diversity and Trace fossil. Paul M. Barrett has included themes like Chilesaurus and Theropoda in his Ornithischia study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A new hypothesis of dinosaur relationships and early dinosaur evolution (124 citations)
  • The earliest bird-line archosaurs and the assembly of the dinosaur body plan (81 citations)
  • Open data and digital morphology (72 citations)

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

  • Genus
  • Paleontology
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Taxon, Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Mesozoic and Zoology. The Taxon study combines topics in areas such as Tetrapod, East Asia and Cretaceous. Within one scientific family, Paul M. Barrett focuses on topics pertaining to Marine life under Cretaceous, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Postcrania.

He has researched Ecology in several fields, including Diversity, Clade and Geologic record. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sauropterygia, Pelagic zone, Upper Elliot Formation and Paleoecology. His studies deal with areas such as Ornithischia, Sauropoda and Theropoda as well as Sauropodomorpha.
