Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Anatomy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Australopithecus sediba, Anatomy, Cave, Homo naledi and Zoology. Steven E. Churchill works mostly in the field of Australopithecus sediba, limiting it down to topics relating to Fossil Record and, in certain cases, Pelvis, Mosaic evolution, Hand bones and Stone tool. His work on Bipedalism, Bilateral asymmetry, Upper limb and Humerus as part of general Anatomy research is frequently linked to Gait kinematics, bridging the gap between disciplines.

The various areas that Steven E. Churchill examines in his Cave study include Paleontology and Australopithecus. Homo habilis and Homo erectus is closely connected to Paranthropus robustus in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Homo naledi. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology and Hominidae as well as Zoology.

His most cited work include:

  • Australopithecus sediba: A New Species of Homo-Like Australopith from South Africa (401 citations)
  • Australopithecus sediba: A New Species of Homo-Like Australopith from South Africa (401 citations)
  • Homo naledi, a new species of the genus Homo from the Dinaledi Chamber, South Africa (394 citations)

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

Steven E. Churchill spends much of his time researching Anatomy, Homo naledi, Australopithecus sediba, Cave and Paleontology. As a member of one scientific family, Steven E. Churchill mostly works in the field of Anatomy, focusing on Postcrania and, on occasion, Morphology. His research on Homo naledi also deals with topics like

  • Hominidae which intersects with area such as Zoology,
  • Femur which connect with Tibia.

Steven E. Churchill interconnects Mosaic evolution and Fossil Record in the investigation of issues within Australopithecus sediba. His work in Cave tackles topics such as Australopithecus which are related to areas like Homo erectus, Homo floresiensis and Australopithecus afarensis. The Paleontology study combines topics in areas such as Neanderthal and Genus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anatomy (52.26%)
  • Homo naledi (45.81%)
  • Australopithecus sediba (39.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Homo naledi (45.81%)
  • Anatomy (52.26%)
  • Evolutionary biology (24.52%)

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

Steven E. Churchill mostly deals with Homo naledi, Anatomy, Evolutionary biology, Cave and Australopithecus. His Homo naledi study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Postcrania, Femur, Upper limb and Bipedalism. His work on Australopithecus sediba, Thigh and Scapula as part of general Anatomy study is frequently connected to Femoral neck, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His study in Australopithecus sediba is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Osteoid osteoma, Osteoma and Osteoid. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Paleontology and Australopithecus afarensis. His Australopithecus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology, Body size and Homo erectus, Homo floresiensis.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • New fossil remains of Homo naledi from the Lesedi Chamber, South Africa (60 citations)
  • New fossil remains of Homo naledi from the Lesedi Chamber, South Africa (60 citations)
  • The vertebrae and ribs of Homo naledi (33 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Genus
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Homo naledi, Australopithecus, Anatomy, Cave and Homo erectus. Steven E. Churchill brings together Homo naledi and Context to produce work in his papers. Steven E. Churchill mostly deals with Australopithecus sediba in his studies of Anatomy.

His Cave research includes elements of Paleontology, Australopithecus afarensis and Postcrania. His research integrates issues of Skeletal material, Hominidae and Paleoanthropology in his study of Postcrania. The study incorporates disciplines such as Femur, Tibia and Patella in addition to Homo erectus.
