1986 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Gene

Peter A. Parsons spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Ecology, Drosophila melanogaster and Natural selection. His work deals with themes such as Natural population growth, Drosophila pseudoobscura, Drosophila and Evolution of dominance, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His work on Adaptation, Resistance and Habitat as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Extreme stress, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research integrates issues of Analysis of variance and Heritability in his study of Drosophila melanogaster. His Natural selection research includes elements of Senescence and Abiotic stress. Peter A. Parsons has researched Directional selection in several fields, including Domestication, Vertebrate and Loss of heterozygosity.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolutionary Genetics and Environmental Stress (973 citations)
  • FLUCTUATING ASYMMETRY: AN EPIGENETIC MEASURE OF STRESS (646 citations)
  • Fluctuating asymmetry: a biological monitor of environmental and genomic stress. (433 citations)

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

Peter A. Parsons focuses on Ecology, Genetics, Drosophila melanogaster, Evolutionary biology and Drosophila. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Zoology and Drosophila. His Drosophila melanogaster study combines topics in areas such as Genetic variation, Larva and Longevity.

His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Phenotype, Natural selection and Assortative mating. The concepts of his Drosophila study are interwoven with issues in Acetaldehyde and Cosmopolitan distribution. The various areas that he examines in his Abiotic component study include Context and Stress resistance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (34.46%)
  • Genetics (33.90%)
  • Drosophila melanogaster (26.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1989-2016)?

  • Ecology (34.46%)
  • Adaptation (11.30%)
  • Longevity (11.30%)

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

Peter A. Parsons focuses on Ecology, Adaptation, Longevity, Abiotic component and Evolutionary biology. His research investigates the connection between Ecology and topics such as Natural selection that intersect with problems in Competition and Stress. His Longevity study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics.

When carried out as part of a general Genetics research project, his work on Loss of heterozygosity, Vertebrate, Heritability and Melanogaster is frequently linked to work in Trait, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Drosophila melanogaster, Maximum life span, Mutation, Stress resistance and Genetic variation. His study looks at the relationship between Genetic variation and fields such as Phenotype, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 1989 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Evolutionary Genetics and Environmental Stress (973 citations)
  • FLUCTUATING ASYMMETRY: AN EPIGENETIC MEASURE OF STRESS (646 citations)
  • Fluctuating asymmetry: a biological monitor of environmental and genomic stress. (433 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Peter A. Parsons mainly focuses on Ecology, Adaptation, Natural selection, Resistance and Longevity. His work investigates the relationship between Ecology and topics such as Stress resistance that intersect with problems in Protein variation, Fight-or-flight response and Drosophila buzzatii. His study on Directional selection is often connected to Trait as part of broader study in Natural selection.

Human evolutionary genetics and Evolutionary biology are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary research. As part of one scientific family, Peter A. Parsons deals mainly with the area of Evolutionary biology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Phenotype, and often Zoology. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Melanogaster, Inbreeding, Genetics and Genetic variation.
