2019 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Robb T. Brumfield mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Cline, Hybrid zone, Introgression, Foothills and Biogeography. His Ecology research includes themes of Genetic Speciation, Allopatric speciation, Biological dispersal and Ecological speciation.
His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genome and Competition. While the research belongs to areas of Clade, he spends his time largely on the problem of Zoology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Neognathae and Palaeognathae. His work investigates the relationship between Phylogeography and topics such as Population genetics that intersect with problems in Microsatellite, Genetic variation and Passerina.
His primary scientific interests are in Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Zoology, Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics. His work deals with themes such as Hybrid zone, Molecular phylogenetics, Taxon, Coalescent theory and Systematics, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Phylogeography and Allopatric speciation.
His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sister group, Clade, Polyphyly and Monophyly. His Phylogenetic tree study which covers Taxonomy that intersects with Epinecrophylla. His Phylogenetics research includes elements of Genomics, DNA sequencing and Data sequences.
Robb T. Brumfield mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree, Systematics, Ecology and Paraphyly. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phylogenetics, Clade, Molecular phylogenetics, Genome and Plumage. He mostly deals with Phylogenomics in his studies of Phylogenetic tree.
Chiroxiphia is closely connected to Coalescent theory in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Phylogenomics. His studies deal with areas such as Taxon and Biological dispersal as well as Systematics. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Genetic Speciation.
Robb T. Brumfield spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Biogeography, Biological dispersal and Phylogenetic tree. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Genetic admixture, Clade and Introgression. His study looks at the intersection of Clade and topics like Sexual selection with Macroevolution.
Robb T. Brumfield combines subjects such as Biodiversity, Species richness, Tropical biodiversity and Tropics with his study of Phylogenetics. His Biogeography study combines topics in areas such as Systematics and Phylogeography. His study in Phylogenetic tree is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genome, Comparative genomics, Human evolutionary genetics and Genomics.
