Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Alexandre Roulin mainly focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Tyto, Plumage and Barn-owl. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Melanin and Carnus hemapterus. He focuses mostly in the field of Melanin, narrowing it down to matters related to Melanocortins and, in some cases, Tyrosinase.

His research integrates issues of Genetic correlation, Natural selection, Biological dispersal, Microtus and Local adaptation in his study of Tyto. His Plumage research incorporates elements of Sympatry, Strix aluco, Apodemus, Foraging and Genetic variation. His Barn-owl study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Feather.

His most cited work include:

  • Pleiotropy in the melanocortin system, coloration and behavioural syndromes. (566 citations)
  • Senescence rates are determined by ranking on the fast–slow life‐history continuum (258 citations)
  • The biology of color (235 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Tyto, Barn-owl, Zoology and Plumage. His Tyto study combines topics in areas such as Biological dispersal, Natural selection, Reproduction and Reproductive success. His Barn-owl research incorporates themes from Sibling, Endocrinology, Barn, Feather and Corticosterone.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Zoology, Melanin are connected with Melanocortin and other disciplines. Alexandre Roulin has included themes like Strix aluco and Genetic correlation, Genetic variation in his Plumage study. His study looks at the relationship between Genetics and topics such as Evolutionary biology, which overlap with Major histocompatibility complex.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (45.21%)
  • Tyto (43.68%)
  • Barn-owl (42.91%)

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

  • Tyto (43.68%)
  • Barn-owl (42.91%)
  • Zoology (43.68%)

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

Alexandre Roulin focuses on Tyto, Barn-owl, Zoology, Plumage and Ecology. The Tyto study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Natural selection, Nest, Reproductive success and Convergent evolution. His Barn-owl research includes elements of Barn and Corticosterone.

His Zoology research includes themes of Melanin, Predation and Body size. He combines subjects such as Nocturnal, Sexual maturity and Feather with his study of Plumage. His research in the fields of Range, Habitat and Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Glacial period.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Differential fitness effects of moonlight on plumage colour morphs in barn owls (22 citations)
  • Climate‐driven convergent evolution of plumage colour in a cosmopolitan bird (14 citations)
  • The Art of Diplomacy in Vocally Negotiating Barn Owl Siblings (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Alexandre Roulin mainly investigates Tyto, Barn-owl, Cosmopolitan distribution, Ecology and Convergent evolution. His Tyto research integrates issues from Zoology, Plumage, Natural selection and Population genomics. His Natural selection study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quantitative trait locus, Corticosterone, Adaptation and Heritability.

His Cosmopolitan distribution research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Range, Bergmann's rule, Body size and Genus. His Ecology research focuses on Ecology in particular. His research in Convergent evolution intersects with topics in Melanin and Melanism.
