Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

Richard C. Tinsley focuses on Zoology, Ecology, Xenopus, Host and Monogenea. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ribosomal DNA, Phylogenetic tree, Larva, Scaphiopus and Anatomy in addition to Zoology. Taxonomy is closely connected to Gyrodactylus in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ribosomal DNA.

His Larva study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hatching and Animal science. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gyrodactylus turnbulli, Helminths, Phylogenetics and Poecilia. His work carried out in the field of Monogenea brings together such families of science as Poeciliidae and Environmental factor.

His most cited work include:

  • A mitochondrial DNA phylogeny of African clawed frogs: phylogeography and implications for polyploid evolution. (240 citations)
  • The Biology of Xenopus (206 citations)
  • Geographical distribution and ecology (81 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Zoology, Ecology, Host, Monogenea and Xenopus. His studies deal with areas such as Hatching, Rainbow trout, Larva and Anatomy as well as Zoology. Ecology and Pipidae are frequently intertwined in his study.

His Pipidae study also includes

  • Subspecies and Digenea most often made with reference to Taxonomy,
  • Silurana which is related to area like Phylogeography and Phylogenetics. His work on Macroparasite is typically connected to Infectivity as part of general Host study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work in Monogenea addresses subjects such as Ultrastructure, which are connected to disciplines such as Cell biology, Viral tegument and Embryo.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (56.70%)
  • Ecology (45.36%)
  • Host (31.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2021)?

  • Zoology (56.70%)
  • Ecology (45.36%)
  • Host (31.96%)

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

His main research concerns Zoology, Ecology, Host, Helminths and Monogenea. His work on Genus as part of his general Zoology study is frequently connected to Hippopotamus amphibius, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Ecology and Transmission are two areas of study in which Richard C. Tinsley engages in interdisciplinary research.

His Host research includes elements of Fauna and Anatomy. The various areas that Richard C. Tinsley examines in his Helminths study include Acquired immune system, Parasite transmission, Parasitology, Virology and Immunity. His research integrates issues of Ultrastructure, Cytoplasm, Viral tegument and Epidermis in his study of Monogenea.

Between 2007 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genetics, Morphology, Advertisement Calls, and Historical Records Distinguish Six New Polyploid Species of African Clawed Frog (Xenopus, Pipidae) from West and Central Africa (52 citations)
  • The Rift Valley is a major barrier to dispersal of African clawed frogs (Xenopus) in Ethiopia. (34 citations)
  • A new species of clawed frog (genus Xenopus ) from the Itombwe Massif, Democratic Republic of the Congo: implications for DNA barcodes and biodiversity conservation (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Genetics

Ecology, Biodiversity, African clawed frog, Genus and Polyploid are his primary areas of study. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Extreme weather, intersects with other areas such as Rift. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Range, Temperate climate, Extinction, Climate change and Introduced species.

Genus is a subfield of Zoology that Richard C. Tinsley studies. His Zoology research includes themes of Xenopus and Genetics. His research in Polyploid intersects with topics in Sister group, Silurana, Pipidae, Subgenus and Phylogeography.
