Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Fungus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Taxonomy, Phylogenetic tree, Mycosphaerella and Genus. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zoology, Pleosporales, Phylogenetics and Species complex. His work carried out in the field of Taxonomy brings together such families of science as Genealogy and Diaporthe, Diaporthe eres, Phomopsis.

His work in Phylogenetic tree addresses issues such as Evolutionary biology, which are connected to fields such as Ribosomal RNA. His Mycosphaerella research includes elements of Teratosphaeria, Cercospora, Pseudocercospora, Internal transcribed spacer and Mycosphaerellaceae. His work investigates the relationship between Genus and topics such as DNA barcoding that intersect with problems in GenBank.

His most cited work include:

  • A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi (1636 citations)
  • Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny (1413 citations)
  • Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae (502 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Botany, Taxonomy, Genus, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. Mycosphaerella, Conidium, Eucalyptus, Systematics and Pseudocercospora are the primary areas of interest in his Botany study. His Mycosphaerella research integrates issues from Mycosphaerellaceae, Teratosphaeriaceae, Teratosphaeria and Leaf spot.

His Taxonomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxon, Hyphomycetes and Mycology. His work deals with themes such as Ascomycota, Species complex and DNA sequencing, which intersect with Phylogenetics. His study brings together the fields of Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetic tree.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (83.46%)
  • Taxonomy (31.59%)
  • Genus (19.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Botany (83.46%)
  • Taxonomy (31.59%)
  • Phylogenetics (19.78%)

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

Botany, Taxonomy, Phylogenetics, Genus and Phylogenetic tree are his primary areas of study. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Morphology and Internal transcribed spacer. His Taxonomy study is focused on Zoology in general.

The Phylogenetics study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Systematics, Locus and Species diversity. His Genus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as GenBank, Chaetomiaceae and Molecular phylogenetics. Pedro W. Crous usually deals with Phylogenetic tree and limits it to topics linked to Taxon and Nomenclature and Data sequences.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large-scale generation and analysis of filamentous fungal DNA barcodes boosts coverage for kingdom fungi and reveals thresholds for fungal species and higher taxon delimitation. (156 citations)
  • Large-scale generation and analysis of filamentous fungal DNA barcodes boosts coverage for kingdom fungi and reveals thresholds for fungal species and higher taxon delimitation. (156 citations)
  • Large-scale generation and analysis of filamentous fungal DNA barcodes boosts coverage for kingdom fungi and reveals thresholds for fungal species and higher taxon delimitation. (156 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Fungus

Pedro W. Crous mainly investigates Botany, Taxonomy, Genus, Phylogenetics and Evolutionary biology. His Botany study often links to related topics such as Dothideomycetes. His Taxonomy study incorporates themes from Pleosporales, Phylogenetic tree and Horticulture.

His Genus course of study focuses on GenBank and Genetic marker and Ribosomal RNA. His studies deal with areas such as Ascomycota, Colletotrichum, Orange, Species diversity and Diaporthe as well as Phylogenetics. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Taxon, Genome evolution, Genome and Clade.
