His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Acari, Zoology, Oribatida and Mite. His study looks at the relationship between Acari and fields such as Devonian, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Zoology research includes themes of Taxon, Sexual reproduction and Phylogenetic tree.
His work deals with themes such as Fauna and Molecular clock, which intersect with Taxon. His Oribatida study deals with Acariformes intersecting with Animal ecology. His Mite study is focused on Botany in general.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oribatida, Acari, Ecology, Mite and Zoology. His Oribatida research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gnathosoma, Genus, Type species and Anatomy. His biological study focuses on Acariformes.
He has researched Acariformes in several fields, including Lichen, Thelytoky and Arboreal locomotion. His Mite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Instar, Phylogenetic tree, Predation, Decomposer and Biogeography. His Taxon research incorporates themes from Brachypylina, Devonian and Subfamily.
Ecology, Oribatida, Mite, Acari and Zoology are his primary areas of study. Many of his research projects under Ecology are closely connected to Biological dispersal and Local adaptation with Biological dispersal and Local adaptation, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. In Oribatida, Roy A. Norton works on issues like Acariformes, which are connected to Nomenclature and Type genus.
His Mite study combines topics in areas such as Taxonomy and Chemical defense. Roy A. Norton studied Acari and Genus that intersect with Taxon. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Cuticle, Decomposer, Predation and Chemical ecology.
Roy A. Norton mostly deals with Taxonomy, Mite, Oribatida, Ecology and Oribatula tibialis. His work on Type genus and Nomenclature as part of general Taxonomy study is frequently linked to Cephea, Genealogy and Cepheidae, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Mite research integrates issues from Global biodiversity, Fauna and Endemism.
To a larger extent, Roy A. Norton studies Acari with the aim of understanding Oribatida. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Rostrozetes ovulum, Ectotherm, Riparian zone and Arthropod, intersects with other areas such as Size Response. He has included themes like Chemical defense and Glycoside, Organic chemistry, Hydrogen cyanide in his Oribatula tibialis study.
