Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Genus
  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List

Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Molecular clock, Clade and Phylogenetics are his primary areas of study. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Key innovation and Extinction. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Centrarchidae, Lineage and Labroidei.

His study in Lineage is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Acanthomorpha, Molecular evolution, Actinopterygii and Percomorpha. His studies in Molecular clock integrate themes in fields like Paleontology, Molecular phylogenetics and Reproductive isolation. His Clade research is classified as research in Phylogenetic tree.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution and the latitudinal diversity gradient: speciation, extinction and biogeography (1093 citations)
  • Resolution of ray-finned fish phylogeny and timing of diversification (629 citations)
  • Early bursts of body size and shape evolution are rare in comparative data. (568 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics and Clade. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Molecular clock, Molecular phylogenetics, Adaptive radiation, Lineage and Introgression. Thomas J. Near has researched Ecology in several fields, including Phylogeography and Species complex.

His research integrates issues of Zoology and Mitochondrial DNA in his study of Phylogenetic tree. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Centrarchidae and Nuclear gene. The concepts of his Clade study are interwoven with issues in Actinopterygii, Taxon, Most recent common ancestor, Living fossil and Morphology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (63.13%)
  • Ecology (48.60%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (51.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (63.13%)
  • Lineage (37.43%)
  • Adaptive radiation (22.35%)

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

Thomas J. Near mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Lineage, Adaptive radiation, Phylogenetic tree and Clade. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Acanthomorpha, Genome, Subfamily, Percomorpha and Olfaction. He combines subjects such as Ecology, Phylogenomics, Molecular phylogenetics and Introgression with his study of Lineage.

His Phylogenetic tree research includes themes of Phylogenetics and Meristics. In his study, Biological dispersal and Evolutionary radiation is strongly linked to Notothenioidei, which falls under the umbrella field of Phylogenetics. His work is dedicated to discovering how Clade, Extinction event are connected with Paleogene, Cretaceous and Taxon and other disciplines.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An inverse latitudinal gradient in speciation rate for marine fishes (235 citations)
  • Explosive diversification of marine fishes at the Cretaceous-Palaeogene boundary. (72 citations)
  • Explosive diversification of marine fishes at the Cretaceous-Palaeogene boundary. (72 citations)

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

  • Genus
  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List

Thomas J. Near spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree, Clade, Lineage and Ecology. The various areas that he examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Sister group and Molecular phylogenetics. His work on Percomorpha as part of general Phylogenetic tree study is frequently linked to Berycidae, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Clade research includes themes of Zoology, Superorder, Extinction event and Genome. Thomas J. Near combines subjects such as Phylogenomics, Turtle and Introgression with his study of Lineage. His research investigates the link between Phylogenetics and topics such as Trematomus that cross with problems in Monophyly.
