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, Evolutionary biology, Ficedula albicollis, Natural selection and Selection. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Genetics, Directionality, Inbreeding, Genetic load and Ficedula. His Ficedula albicollis study combines topics in areas such as Avian clutch size, Insectivore, Mate choice and Fledge.

The concepts of his Natural selection study are interwoven with issues in Natural population growth, Genetic variability, Genetic variation and Heritability. His Selection study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Animal ecology, Econometrics and Evolutionary ecology. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Avian malaria and Reproductive success.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological immunology: costly parasite defences and trade-offs in evolutionary ecology (1990 citations)
  • Adaptive Phenotypic Plasticity in Response to Climate Change in a Wild Bird Population (866 citations)
  • Differential allocation: tests, mechanisms and implications. (591 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Parus, Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Selection. His Ecology research focuses on Reproductive success and how it connects with Reproduction. His study looks at the relationship between Parus and fields such as Foraging, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Genetics, Natural selection and Genetic variation. Many of his studies on Selection apply to Fledge as well. The study incorporates disciplines such as Life history theory and Sexual dimorphism in addition to Ficedula albicollis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (47.83%)
  • Parus (27.02%)
  • Evolutionary biology (28.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (47.83%)
  • Parus (27.02%)
  • Foraging (7.45%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Parus, Foraging, Evolutionary biology and Natural selection. He merges Ecology with Context in his research. His biological study deals with issues like Reproductive success, which deal with fields such as Avian clutch size and Hatching.

His Foraging study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Production, Ecology, Social connectedness and Flock. Ben C. Sheldon has included themes like Genetics, Phenotypic plasticity and Genetic variation, Directional selection in his Evolutionary biology study. His Natural selection study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Selection.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Precipitation drives global variation in natural selection. (154 citations)
  • Evolutionary signals of selection on cognition from the great tit genome and methylome (128 citations)
  • Recent natural selection causes adaptive evolution of an avian polygenic trait (99 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Gene

Ben C. Sheldon mostly deals with Ecology, Parus, Social psychology, Foraging and Phenotypic plasticity. Ben C. Sheldon integrates Ecology with Trait in his study. His research integrates issues of Personality and Reproductive success in his study of Parus.

Ben C. Sheldon interconnects Sexual selection and Seasonal breeder in the investigation of issues within Personality. His Foraging research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adaptive behavior, Copying, Reinforcement and Conformity. His research investigates the link between Phenotypic plasticity and topics such as Epigenetics that cross with problems in Evolutionary biology.
