Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Genus

Zoology, Clade, Taxon, Ecology and Evolutionary biology are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Sylvioidea, Glacial period and Cytochrome b, which intersect with Zoology. His work investigates the relationship between Clade and topics such as Molecular phylogenetics that intersect with problems in Passerida.

His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Biological dispersal, which are linked to Vicariance. The Biogeography study combines topics in areas such as Macroevolution and Coalescent theory. His research integrates issues of Columbea, Neoaves, Passerea, Neognathae and Palaeognathae in his study of Coalescent theory.

His most cited work include:

  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation. (638 citations)

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

Per Alström spends much of his time researching Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Taxonomy, Ecology and Taxon. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Clade and Species complex. His work in Clade addresses issues such as Lineage, which are connected to fields such as Early Pleistocene.

His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetics, Sylvioidea, Wallcreeper, Coalescent theory and Phylloscopidae. His work on Cyornis as part of general Taxonomy study is frequently linked to Geography, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Ecology research integrates issues from Biological dispersal and Pleistocene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (94.95%)
  • Evolutionary biology (73.39%)
  • Taxonomy (66.06%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (73.39%)
  • Taxonomy (66.06%)
  • Geography (32.57%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Evolutionary biology, Taxonomy, Geography, Ecology and Zoology. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Morphology, Species complex, Introgression and Plumage. His Taxonomy research incorporates themes from Subspecies and Family Estrildidae.

Many of his research projects under Ecology are closely connected to Diversification and Enhanced vegetation index with Diversification and Enhanced vegetation index, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. He has included themes like Taxon and Clade in his Zoology study. His studies deal with areas such as Phylogenetic network and Lineage as well as Clade.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Earth history and the passerine superradiation (77 citations)
  • Earth history and the passerine superradiation (77 citations)
  • Earth history and the passerine superradiation (77 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Genus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Evolutionary biology, Biological dispersal, Passerine, Biogeography and Diversification. His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Species complex, Taxonomy, Phylloscopidae and Introgression. His Taxonomy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biodiversity and Jungle.

Many of his studies on Biodiversity involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Clade. In his works, he undertakes multidisciplinary study on Clade and Linear sequence. His Biogeography study incorporates themes from Macroevolution and Coalescent theory.
