Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Ecology, DNA barcoding and Monophyly. His study brings together the fields of Phylogenetics and Zoology. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Anatomy and Body size.

His Biodiversity study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Border Security. His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Taxon, Endemism, Species diversity and Biogeography. His Taxonomy research includes elements of Species complex and DNA sequencing.

His most cited work include:

  • Cryptic species as a window on diversity and conservation (2117 citations)
  • SequenceMatrix: concatenation software for the fast assembly of multi‐gene datasets with character set and codon information (1048 citations)
  • DNA barcoding and taxonomy in Diptera: a tale of high intraspecific variability and low identification success (941 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Zoology, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree and Sepsidae. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Taxon, Phylogenetics, Larva and Monophyly. His studies in Biodiversity, Habitat, Fauna, Species diversity and Range are all subfields of Ecology research.

The various areas that Rudolf Meier examines in his Evolutionary biology study include genomic DNA, Intraspecific competition and Sexual dimorphism. His Sepsidae study incorporates themes from Entomology, Insect and Mating. His DNA barcoding research integrates issues from Minion and DNA sequencing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (37.37%)
  • Ecology (34.74%)
  • Evolutionary biology (30.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (30.53%)
  • Ecology (34.74%)
  • Barcode (10.00%)

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

Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Barcode, DNA barcoding and Minion are his primary areas of study. Rudolf Meier has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Entomology, Calyptratae, Species complex, Onchidiidae and Gastropoda. His Calyptratae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sister group, Schizophora, Drosophilidae and Monophyly.

His Habitat, Fauna, Biodiversity, Species diversity and Range study are his primary interests in Ecology. The DNA barcoding study combines topics in areas such as Abundance and Computational biology. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Literature survey and Zoology through his works.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A MinION™-based pipeline for fast and cost-effective DNA barcoding. (61 citations)
  • A MinION™-based pipeline for fast and cost-effective DNA barcoding. (61 citations)
  • Sorting specimen‐rich invertebrate samples with cost‐effective NGS barcodes: Validating a reverse workflow for specimen processing (42 citations)

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

  • Genus
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His main research concerns Barcode, DNA barcoding, Evolutionary biology, Ecology and Fauna. His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Calyptratae, Culicomorpha, Phylogenetic tree and Critically endangered. Species diversity, Biodiversity and Freshwater swamp forest are among the areas of Ecology where Rudolf Meier concentrates his study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Malaise trap, Relative species abundance and Taxonomy in addition to Biodiversity. His study connects Taxon and Fauna. His study looks at the relationship between DNA sequencing and fields such as Cuttlefish, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
