Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology

Rhabdomys pumilio, Ecology, Seasonal breeder, Sociality and Rhabdomys are his primary areas of study. His studies in Rhabdomys pumilio integrate themes in fields like Zoology, Habitat and Basal metabolic rate. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Ecology, concentrating on Philopatry and frequently concerns with Internal medicine and Endocrinology.

Carsten Schradin has included themes like Population density, Cooperative breeding and Reproduction in his Seasonal breeder study. His Sociality study deals with Biological dispersal intersecting with Predation. His studies deal with areas such as Animal ecology, Group living, Territoriality and Nest as well as Rhabdomys.

His most cited work include:

  • INTRASPECIFIC VARIATION IN THE SPATIAL AND SOCIAL ORGANIZATION OF THE AFRICAN STRIPED MOUSE (157 citations)
  • The striped mouse (Rhabdomys pumilio) from the succulent karoo, South Africa: A territorial group-living solitary forager with communal breeding and helpers at the nest (139 citations)
  • Social flexibility and social evolution in mammals: a case study of the African striped mouse (Rhabdomys pumilio) (100 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Rhabdomys pumilio, Ecology, Zoology, Demography and Paternal care. His Rhabdomys pumilio research includes themes of Endocrinology, Philopatry, Internal medicine, Nest and Dry season. His work in Philopatry addresses subjects such as Captivity, which are connected to disciplines such as Vasopressin.

His Ecology research integrates issues from Population density and Biological dispersal. His Zoology study also includes fields such as

  • Territoriality and Group living most often made with reference to Aggression,
  • Rhabdomys together with Range. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Basal metabolic rate, Polygyny, Habitat, Energy expenditure and Reproductive success.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Rhabdomys pumilio (86.78%)
  • Ecology (68.97%)
  • Zoology (46.55%)

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

  • Rhabdomys pumilio (86.78%)
  • Dry season (21.84%)
  • Animal science (12.64%)

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

Carsten Schradin mainly focuses on Rhabdomys pumilio, Dry season, Animal science, Biological dispersal and Zoology. His Rhabdomys pumilio research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sexual preference and Seasonal breeder. His research on Dry season also deals with topics like

  • High food that connect with fields like Food availability,
  • Seasonality, which have a strong connection to Philopatry.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Population density and Predation in addition to Biological dispersal. His study in Population density is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Animal ecology and Corticosterone. The concepts of his Zoology study are interwoven with issues in Social preferences and Polygyny.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Elevated basal corticosterone levels increase disappearance risk of light but not heavy individuals in a long-term monitored rodent population. (7 citations)
  • Elevated basal corticosterone levels increase disappearance risk of light but not heavy individuals in a long-term monitored rodent population. (7 citations)
  • Social flexibility and environmental unpredictability in African striped mice (3 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Habitat

His main research concerns Demography, Animal ecology, Population density, Social organization and Basal metabolic rate. His Demography research incorporates elements of Habitat, Philopatry, Metapopulation, Reproductive success and Adaptation. His work deals with themes such as Rhabdomys pumilio, Environmental change, Psychological resilience, Flexibility and Phenotypic plasticity, which intersect with Animal ecology.

The Population density study combines topics in areas such as Zoology, Seasonal breeder, Biological dispersal, Rodent and Glucocorticoid. His Biological dispersal research includes themes of Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Basal, Predation and Corticosterone. Carsten Schradin combines subjects such as Big Five personality traits, Boldness and Personality with his study of Basal metabolic rate.
