Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology
  • Ecology

Rainer Grün mostly deals with Paleontology, Archaeology, Cave, Chronology and Pleistocene. His work carried out in the field of Paleontology brings together such families of science as Homo sapiens and Human evolution. Within one scientific family, Rainer Grün focuses on topics pertaining to Hominidae under Archaeology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Homo erectus and Gigantopithecus.

Rainer Grün combines subjects such as Enamel paint, Amino acid dating and Absolute dating with his study of Cave. His Chronology research includes themes of Howiesons Poort and Radiocarbon dating. His study on Homo floresiensis is often connected to Poison control as part of broader study in Pleistocene.

His most cited work include:

  • Ages for the Middle Stone Age of Southern Africa: Implications for Human Behavior and Dispersal (399 citations)
  • Australia's oldest human remains: age of the Lake Mungo 3 skeleton. (293 citations)
  • Electron spin resonance (ESR) dating (279 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Archaeology, Pleistocene, Mineralogy and Cave. The Paleontology study combines topics in areas such as Uranium-thorium dating and Hominidae. His Archaeology study often links to related topics such as Period.

His Pleistocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Homo sapiens, Human evolution and Fauna. His Mineralogy research includes elements of Tooth enamel, Enamel paint, Electron paramagnetic resonance and Quartz. His Cave research integrates issues from Radiometric dating and Homo floresiensis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (35.26%)
  • Archaeology (35.90%)
  • Pleistocene (28.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Archaeology (35.90%)
  • Pleistocene (28.53%)
  • Cave (23.72%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Archaeology, Pleistocene, Cave, Chronology and Homo sapiens. Rainer Grün has researched Archaeology in several fields, including Period and Hominidae. His Pleistocene study improves the overall literature in Paleontology.

In general Paleontology study, his work on Thermoluminescence dating and Sedimentary depositional environment often relates to the realm of Internal dose and Western europe, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His study in Cave is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Assemblage, Faunal assemblage, Geochemistry and Homo floresiensis. His Homo sapiens study incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology and Biological dispersal.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The age of the hominin fossils from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco, and the origins of the Middle Stone Age (190 citations)
  • The age of the hominin fossils from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco, and the origins of the Middle Stone Age (190 citations)
  • The earliest modern humans outside Africa (173 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Homo sapiens, Archaeology, Hominidae, Cave and Pleistocene. His Homo sapiens study combines topics in areas such as Biological dispersal and Human evolution. His study deals with a combination of Archaeology and Environmental science.

His Hominidae research includes themes of Genealogy and Paleontology, Radiometric dating. His Cave research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Evolutionary biology, Biological anthropology and Homo floresiensis. His Pleistocene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Radiocarbon dating and Paleoanthropology.
