Tom L. Phillips spends much of his time researching Pennsylvanian, Ecology, Lepidodendron, Sigillaria and Calamites. His research in Pennsylvanian intersects with topics in Earth science and Botany. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Decomposer and Paleoecology.
While the research belongs to areas of Ecology, he spends his time largely on the problem of Cordaites, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Detritivore and Mite. His Calamites study is concerned with the field of Paleontology as a whole. He interconnects Peat and Period in the investigation of issues within Coal ball.
Tom L. Phillips mainly focuses on Pennsylvanian, Paleontology, Botany, Ecology and Carboniferous. His study in Psaronius and Calamites falls under the purview of Pennsylvanian. The Calamites study combines topics in areas such as Sigillaria, Cordaites and Lepidodendron.
His work is dedicated to discovering how Paleontology, Peat are connected with Swamp and other disciplines. The various areas that Tom L. Phillips examines in his Ecology study include Permian and Permineralization. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glacial period, Paleoecology and Fern.
His primary areas of investigation include Pennsylvanian, Ecology, Carboniferous, Botany and Paleontology. His work in the fields of Psaronius overlaps with other areas such as Shore. His work in Ecology addresses issues such as Permineralization, which are connected to fields such as Genus, Sporangium and Frond.
As a part of the same scientific family, Tom L. Phillips mostly works in the field of Carboniferous, focusing on Glacial period and, on occasion, Biozone, Palynology, Westphalian sovereignty and Sea level. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Decomposer, Detritivore and Arthropod. In general Paleontology study, his work on Cyclothems often relates to the realm of Boundary, Paleosol and Conodont, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
His main research concerns Pennsylvanian, Ecology, Psaronius, Herbivore and Botany. His Pennsylvanian research includes themes of Devonian, Insect, Earth science and Mite. His studies deal with areas such as Vascular tissue, Palaeodictyoptera, Phloem, Xylem and Stylet as well as Devonian.
His Insect study incorporates themes from Gall and Carboniferous. The study incorporates disciplines such as Climate change, Tropical monsoon climate and Tropical peat in addition to Earth science. His work carried out in the field of Mite brings together such families of science as Cordaites, Arthropod, Cambium, Decomposer and Detritivore.
