Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

Robert Poulin mainly focuses on Ecology, Host, Zoology, Parasite hosting and Species richness. He combines topics linked to Evolutionary biology with his work on Ecology. Similarity is closely connected to Geographical distance in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Host.

His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Freshwater fish, Phylogenetics and Interspecific competition. His Parasite hosting research incorporates elements of Range, Phylogenetic tree, Taxon, Helminths and Vertebrate. As part of the same scientific family, Robert Poulin usually focuses on Species richness, concentrating on Population density and intersecting with Trematoda.

His most cited work include:

  • SPECIES RICHNESS OF PARASITE ASSEMBLAGES: Evolution and Patterns (953 citations)
  • Evolutionary Ecology of Parasites (938 citations)
  • Parasites in food webs: the ultimate missing links (577 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Zoology, Host, Parasite hosting and Parasitism. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Helminths. His studies examine the connections between Zoology and genetics, as well as such issues in Taxon, with regards to Taxonomy.

His Host research focuses on Predation and how it connects with Trophic level. Robert Poulin regularly ties together related areas like Freshwater fish in his Parasite hosting studies. His studies deal with areas such as Biodiversity, Community structure and Species diversity as well as Species richness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (71.98%)
  • Zoology (41.65%)
  • Host (39.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (71.98%)
  • Host (39.82%)
  • Parasite hosting (29.56%)

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

Robert Poulin spends much of his time researching Ecology, Host, Parasite hosting, Zoology and Evolutionary biology. His research in Parasitism, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Abundance and Species richness are components of Ecology. The Host study combines topics in areas such as Range, Ocean acidification, Biological dispersal and Predation.

His Parasite hosting study incorporates themes from Microbiome and Freshwater fish. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Snail and Intermediate host. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Taxon, Phylogeography, Phylogenetic tree and Parasitology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Meta-analysis of variation: ecological and evolutionary applications and beyond (106 citations)
  • The macroecology of infectious diseases: a new perspective on global-scale drivers of pathogen distributions and impacts (79 citations)
  • Evolution of parasitism along convergent lines: from ecology to genomics. (66 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Statistics

Robert Poulin focuses on Ecology, Parasite hosting, Host, Zoology and Parasitism. His Ecology and Biodiversity, Abundance, Species richness, Ocean acidification and Ecology investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. The various areas that Robert Poulin examines in his Parasite hosting study include Evolutionary biology, Microbiome, Genetics, Juvenile and Fauna.

Robert Poulin combines subjects such as Immunology, Competition, Sympatric speciation and Interspecific competition with his study of Host. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Monophyly and Intermediate host. His Intermediate host research includes themes of Standing crop and Species diversity.
