Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Sexual selection, Booby and Sula nebouxii. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Larus michahellis and Reproductive success. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Lipid peroxidation, Lower body and Scramble competition.

His Sexual selection research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oxidative stress, Mate choice, Animal ecology, Epigenetics and Germ. His studies examine the connections between Booby and genetics, as well as such issues in Senescence, with regards to Physiology. His Sula nebouxii research focuses on Courtship and how it connects with Anatomy, Captivity and Seasonal breeder.

His most cited work include:

  • Senescent birds redouble reproductive effort when ill: confirmation of the terminal investment hypothesis. (198 citations)
  • Pigment-based skin colour in the blue-footed booby: an honest signal of current condition used by females to adjust reproductive investment. (155 citations)
  • A three-isotope approach to disentangling the diet of a generalist consumer: the yellow-legged gull in northwest Spain (107 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Zoology, Seabird, Reproduction and Reproductive success. His study in European shag, Booby, Mating, Brood and Lumbricidae falls under the purview of Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Fecundity and Senescence as well as Booby.

The concepts of his Zoology study are interwoven with issues in Larus michahellis, Hatching and Predation. His Seabird research includes elements of Fishery and Pollution. Alberto Velando focuses mostly in the field of Sexual selection, narrowing it down to topics relating to Mate choice and, in certain cases, Animal ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (52.63%)
  • Zoology (34.59%)
  • Seabird (15.04%)

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

  • Zoology (34.59%)
  • Juvenile (8.27%)
  • Larus michahellis (10.53%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Juvenile, Larus michahellis, Ecology and Seasonal breeder. His study explores the link between Zoology and topics such as Hatching that cross with problems in Feather. The Juvenile study combines topics in areas such as Phenotype, Expression, Metabolism and Sex specific.

His Larus michahellis study incorporates themes from Fishery, Sexual dimorphism and Seabird. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Vital rates. The various areas that Alberto Velando examines in his Seasonal breeder study include Acclimatization and Reproduction.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Glucocorticoids modulate gastrointestinal microbiome in a wild bird. (33 citations)
  • Bird embryos perceive vibratory cues of predation risk from clutch mates. (17 citations)
  • Carry‐over effects of early thermal conditions on somatic and germline oxidative damages are mediated by compensatory growth in sticklebacks (16 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Gene

Alberto Velando focuses on Zoology, Ectotherm, Juvenile, Predation and Acclimatization. His work on Plumage as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Alarm signal, bridging the gap between disciplines. Alberto Velando has included themes like Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Phenotypic plasticity and Candidate gene in his Ectotherm study.

His Juvenile study is related to the wider topic of Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Oviparity, Larus michahellis and Embryo, which intersect with Predation. His Acclimatization research includes themes of Compensatory growth and Seasonal breeder.
