Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Archaeology
  • Paleontology
  • Ecology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Middle Stone Age, Howiesons Poort, Archaeology, Cave and Context. Her work deals with themes such as Later Stone Age, Radiocarbon dating, Chronology and Ancient history, which intersect with Middle Stone Age. Her research in Howiesons Poort intersects with topics in Behavioral modernity, Human evolution, Isotopes of oxygen and Mesolithic.

When carried out as part of a general Archaeology research project, her work on Rock shelter, Stone Age and Prehistory is frequently linked to work in Skin protection and Haliotis midae, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Her Rock shelter research includes themes of Stone tool, Human migration, Megafauna, Assemblage and Biological dispersal. Her Cave research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ancient DNA, Mammoth and Neanderthal.

Her most cited work include:

  • Early human use of marine resources and pigment in South Africa during the Middle Pleistocene (633 citations)
  • Emergence of modern human behavior: Middle Stone Age engravings from South Africa. (598 citations)
  • Middle Stone Age Shell Beads from South Africa (424 citations)

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

Zenobia Jacobs mainly investigates Archaeology, Pleistocene, Middle Stone Age, Cave and Paleontology. Her work in the fields of Archaeology, such as Radiocarbon dating, Assemblage, Optical dating and Rock shelter, intersects with other areas such as Context. The study incorporates disciplines such as Range, Glacial period, Quaternary and Holocene in addition to Pleistocene.

Her Middle Stone Age research focuses on Howiesons Poort in particular. In general Cave, her work in Middle Paleolithic is often linked to Hominidae linking many areas of study. Her Paleontology course of study focuses on Sea level and Marine isotope stage and Interglacial.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (49.70%)
  • Pleistocene (32.93%)
  • Middle Stone Age (26.35%)

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

  • Archaeology (49.70%)
  • Pleistocene (32.93%)
  • Cave (28.14%)

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

Her main research concerns Archaeology, Pleistocene, Cave, Chronology and Radiocarbon dating. Her studies deal with areas such as Physical geography, Holocene and Ecological modelling as well as Pleistocene. Zenobia Jacobs has included themes like Sedimentary rock, Range, Neanderthal and Optical dating in her Cave study.

Zenobia Jacobs interconnects Context, Ancient DNA, Diagenesis and Middle Stone Age in the investigation of issues within Sedimentary rock. Zenobia Jacobs has researched Chronology in several fields, including Period and Archaeological record. Her work in Radiocarbon dating addresses issues such as Radiometric dating, which are connected to fields such as Relative dating and Ice core.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Age estimates for hominin fossils and the onset of the Upper Palaeolithic at Denisova Cave (62 citations)
  • Age estimates for hominin fossils and the onset of the Upper Palaeolithic at Denisova Cave (62 citations)
  • Timing of archaic hominin occupation of Denisova Cave in southern Siberia (55 citations)

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

  • Archaeology
  • Paleontology
  • Ecology

Archaeology, Cave, Pleistocene, Radiocarbon dating and Hominidae are her primary areas of study. Her Archaeology study combines topics in areas such as Intertidal zone and Shore. Her Cave study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Range, Archaeological record, Neanderthal and Chronology.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Assemblage, Foothills and Radiometric dating. The various areas that she examines in her Chronology study include Sedimentary rock, Context, Period and Middle Stone Age. Zenobia Jacobs incorporates Pleistocene and Context in her research.
