Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Primate and Infectious disease. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Host, Parasitism, Macroparasite and Promiscuity. Charles L. Nunn works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to concerns involving Demography and, occasionally, Infant mortality.

His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Animal ecology and Set. His Primate research incorporates elements of Sexual swelling and Mating. Charles L. Nunn has researched Infectious disease in several fields, including Mammal and Threatened species.

His most cited work include:

  • Social Organization and Parasite Risk in Mammals: Integrating Theory and Empirical Studies (569 citations)
  • The 10kTrees Website: A New Online Resource for Primate Phylogeny (445 citations)
  • The evolution of self-control (380 citations)

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

Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Primate and Sleep in non-human animals are his primary areas of study. He combines subjects such as Infectious disease and Demography with his study of Ecology. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Animal ecology and Social group.

His specific area of interest is Zoology, where Charles L. Nunn studies Mating. The Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Socioecology and Competition. His Sleep in non-human animals research incorporates themes from Cognition and Audiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (40.83%)
  • Zoology (24.77%)
  • Evolutionary biology (22.94%)

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

  • Ecology (40.83%)
  • Sleep in non-human animals (16.97%)
  • Lemur (8.26%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Sleep in non-human animals, Lemur, Evolutionary biology and Zoology. His work is connected to Biodiversity, Wildlife, Parasitism, Disease ecology and Ecology, as a part of Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Infectious disease, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Species richness, Species diversity and Introduced species as well as Biodiversity.

His Sleep in non-human animals research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developmental psychology, Cognition and Audiology. The concepts of his Lemur study are interwoven with issues in Animal ecology, Habitat and Deciduous. His research in the fields of Human evolution overlaps with other disciplines such as Phylogenetic comparative methods.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Introduced Species, Disease Ecology, and Biodiversity-Disease Relationships. (80 citations)
  • The macroecology of infectious diseases: a new perspective on global-scale drivers of pathogen distributions and impacts (79 citations)
  • Global Mammal Parasite Database version 2.0 (52 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

Charles L. Nunn mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Sleep in non-human animals, Infectious disease and Actigraphy. His research in Ecology is mostly concerned with Disease ecology. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Wildlife, Vector, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Parasitism.

His Sleep in non-human animals study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology, Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Audiology and Eye movement. His work deals with themes such as Virology, Macroparasite, Wildlife management, Population size and Threatened species, which intersect with Infectious disease. His Actigraphy research includes themes of Wakefulness, Nap and Circadian rhythm.
