Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Natural selection
  • Genetics

Andrew G. McAdam mainly investigates Ecology, Reproduction, Endocrinology, Life history theory and Demography. His Ecology research includes elements of Population growth and Heritability. He interconnects Zoology, Mammal, Lactation and Maternal effect in the investigation of issues within Endocrinology.

The Life history theory study combines topics in areas such as Metabolic rate, Litter, Animal science, Energy expenditure and Nutritional status. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Cost of reproduction, Age structure, Trade-off and Herbivore. His Glucocorticoid study incorporates themes from Offspring, Population density, Maternal hormones, Social cue and Physiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic and plastic responses of a northern mammal to climate change (361 citations)
  • Density triggers maternal hormones that increase adaptive offspring growth in a wild mammal. (266 citations)
  • Density triggers maternal hormones that increase adaptive offspring growth in a wild mammal. (266 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Offspring, Zoology, Natural selection and Demography. Andrew G. McAdam frequently studies issues relating to Population density and Ecology. Andrew G. McAdam combines subjects such as Litter, Endocrinology, Sex specific and Sex ratio with his study of Offspring.

His study in Endocrinology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Feces and Lactation. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Aggression and Maternal effect. His work on Directional selection as part of general Natural selection study is frequently linked to Bythotrephes longimanus, bridging the gap between disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (46.71%)
  • Offspring (25.00%)
  • Zoology (26.32%)

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

  • Offspring (25.00%)
  • Ecology (46.71%)
  • Aggression (9.21%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Offspring, Ecology, Aggression, Demography and Endocrinology. His Offspring study focuses on Maternal effect in particular. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Population density and Biological dispersal.

Within one scientific family, Andrew G. McAdam focuses on topics pertaining to Coping under Aggression, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Animal ecology. His research in Demography focuses on subjects like Competition, which are connected to Mammal, Inbreeding and Fitness cost. His study explores the link between Endocrinology and topics such as Lactation that cross with problems in Glucocorticoid.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Causes of maladaptation (27 citations)
  • Understanding Maladaptation by Uniting Ecological and Evolutionary Perspectives (21 citations)
  • Indirect effects on fitness between individuals that have never met via an extended phenotype. (14 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Natural selection
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Natural selection, Adaptation, Maladaptation and Demography. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Abundance, Predation and Trophic level, intersects with other areas such as Geography and A determinant. His research in Abundance intersects with topics in Population density, Juvenile and Abiotic component.

The various areas that Andrew G. McAdam examines in his Natural selection study include Evolutionary dynamics, Cognitive psychology and Social psychology. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Offspring, Phenotype, Quantitative genetics, Inheritance and Hoarding. His work deals with themes such as Animal ecology, Adrenocorticotropic hormone and Reproductive success, which intersect with Offspring.
