Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

Vasyl V. Tkach focuses on Zoology, Digenea, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics and Ecology. When carried out as part of a general Zoology research project, his work on Taxonomy is frequently linked to work in Fasciolidae, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Vasyl V. Tkach combines subjects such as Animal ecology and Clade with his study of Digenea.

His work on Molecular phylogenetics as part of general Phylogenetic tree study is frequently linked to Affinities, bridging the gap between disciplines. Vasyl V. Tkach interconnects Avian malaria and Biological dispersal in the investigation of issues within Ecology. His Maximum parsimony research integrates issues from Aspidogastrea, Nomen novum and Echinostomida.

His most cited work include:

  • Phylogeny and classification of the Digenea (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda). (601 citations)
  • Phylogeny and classification of the Digenea (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda). (601 citations)
  • Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Microphalloidea Ward, 1901 (Trematoda: Digenea). (217 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Zoology, Digenea, Ecology, Genus and Phylogenetic tree. His research on Zoology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Phylogenetics. His Digenea research focuses on Sucker and how it relates to Ovary.

His studies deal with areas such as Helminths, Biological dispersal and Morphology as well as Ecology. His study in Genus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Species complex and Key. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology and Ribosomal RNA in addition to Phylogenetic tree.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (69.11%)
  • Digenea (43.50%)
  • Ecology (36.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Zoology (69.11%)
  • Molecular phylogenetics (17.48%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (24.39%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Zoology, Molecular phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Genus and Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Taxon and Biogeography, which intersect with Zoology. Vasyl V. Tkach interconnects Monophyly, Digenea, Dicrocoeliidae, Systematics and Type species in the investigation of issues within Molecular phylogenetics.

His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Amazon rainforest and Digenea. His Phylogenetic tree research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Mitochondrial DNA. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Helminths and Biological dispersal.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate variation influences host specificity in avian malaria parasites (37 citations)
  • Avian host composition, local speciation and dispersal drive the regional assembly of avian malaria parasites in South American birds (24 citations)
  • An inverse latitudinal gradient in infection probability and phylogenetic diversity for Leucocytozoon blood parasites in New World birds. (21 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

Vasyl V. Tkach mainly investigates Phylogenetic tree, Zoology, Molecular phylogenetics, Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetics. Zoology is often connected to Genetic divergence in his work. The concepts of his Molecular phylogenetics study are interwoven with issues in Digenea and Genus.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Avian malaria and Mitochondrial DNA in addition to Evolutionary biology. His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Spatial ecology, Leucocytozoon and Macroecology. His research in Dicrocoeliidae intersects with topics in Taxon and Taxonomy.
