Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

Wolfgang Wüster spends much of his time researching Venom, Evolutionary biology, Viperidae, Snake venom and Zoology. His specific area of interest is Venom, where Wolfgang Wüster studies Evolution of snake venom. His research integrates issues of Toxicology and Molecular evolution in his study of Evolution of snake venom.

His work investigates the relationship between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Gene family that intersect with problems in Elapidae. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology, Predation, Sister group, Cytochrome b and Phylogenetics. His Ecology research integrates issues from Phylogeography and Vicariance.

His most cited work include:

  • Complex cocktails: the evolutionary novelty of venoms. (516 citations)
  • Diet and snake venom evolution (488 citations)
  • The king cobra genome reveals dynamic gene evolution and adaptation in the snake venom system (327 citations)

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

Zoology, Venom, Ecology, Evolutionary biology and Systematics are his primary areas of study. The Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Naja, Phylogenetics, VIPeR and Elapidae. His study in Snake venom, Antivenom, Viperidae, Evolution of snake venom and Echis are all subfields of Venom.

His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Phylogeography. His Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Gene family, Phenotype, Gene, Gene duplication and Molecular evolution. Wolfgang Wüster has researched Systematics in several fields, including Toxinology, Acanthophis and Venomous snake.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (46.22%)
  • Venom (28.57%)
  • Ecology (27.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Venom (28.57%)
  • Zoology (46.22%)
  • Evolutionary biology (21.85%)

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

Wolfgang Wüster mainly investigates Venom, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Spitting and Biodiversity. His work often combines Venom and Enterococcus faecalis studies. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Naja, Capture mark recapture and Snake venom.

His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phenotype, Crotalus scutulatus, Genome and Facultative. His studies deal with areas such as Convergent evolution, Spitting cobra venom and VIPeR as well as Spitting. His study looks at the relationship between Natural selection and fields such as Evolution of snake venom, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Taxonomy based on science is necessary for global conservation. (80 citations)
  • The medical threat of mamba envenoming in sub-Saharan Africa revealed by genus-wide analysis of venom composition, toxicity and antivenomics profiling of available antivenoms (41 citations)
  • When one phenotype is not enough: divergent evolutionary trajectories govern venom variation in a widespread rattlesnake species (32 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Venom, Evolutionary biology, Environmental ethics and Zoology. Ecology covers Wolfgang Wüster research in Biodiversity. His Venom research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biological evolution, Population structure and Inheritance.

His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Facultative, Asexual reproduction, Predation and Adaptive traits. His Environmental ethics research spans across into areas like Animal welfare science, Captive breeding, Mainstream, Ideology and Global biodiversity. Wolfgang Wüster has included themes like Boulengerina, Forest cobra, Naja and Elapidae in his Zoology study.
