2002 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His main research concerns Botany, Phylogenetic tree, Genetics, Zoology and Phylogenetics. He combines subjects such as Soil microbiology and Population biology with his study of Botany. Rytas Vilgalys interconnects Evolutionary biology and Interspecific competition in the investigation of issues within Phylogenetic tree.
The concepts of his Genetics study are interwoven with issues in Molecular biology and Amplified fragment length polymorphism. His studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Blastocladiomycota, Agaricomycotina and Molecular phylogenetics. Rytas Vilgalys has included themes like Taxon, Biological dispersal, Endemism and Biogeography in his Phylogenetics study.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Genetics, Phylogenetic tree, Ecology and Phylogenetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rhizosphere and Internal transcribed spacer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Systematics and Taxon in addition to Phylogenetic tree.
His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Blastocladiomycota, Cortinarius, Polyphyly and Molecular phylogenetics. As part of his studies on Ecology, Rytas Vilgalys often connects relevant subjects like Biological dispersal. His work on Phylogenetics deals in particular with Monophyly and Clade.
Ecology, Botany, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree and Genome are his primary areas of study. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Niche, Internal transcribed spacer, Ectomycorrhizae, Rhizosphere and Transformation. His work is dedicated to discovering how Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics are connected with Ascomycota and Thelephorales and other disciplines.
His Phylogenetic tree research includes themes of Cenococcum geophilum and Fungus. His Genome study improves the overall literature in Genetics. His research on Genetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Fungicide.
Genome, Ecology, Botany, Rhizosphere and Phylogenetics are his primary areas of study. His Genome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Adaptation, Symbiosis, Linkage disequilibrium and Abiotic component. His Symbiosis research is classified as research in Genetics.
When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Soil microbiology and Colonization is frequently linked to work in Suillus brevipes, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research integrates issues of Soil water, Community structure, Genotype and Internal transcribed spacer in his study of Botany. His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Genome size, Locus and Phylogenetic tree.
