Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, National park, Red colobus, Animal ecology and Foraging. His Procolobus, Primate, Habitat, Frugivore and Abundance investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. His National park study incorporates themes from Zoology, Alouatta palliata, Interspecific competition, Phenology and Wildlife conservation.

His Red colobus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Species richness, Endangered species, Competition and Cercopithecus ascanius. His Animal ecology study combines topics in areas such as Intraspecific competition, Home range, Ecology, Arboreal locomotion and Dry season. His Foraging research incorporates themes from Food availability, Spider, Nutrient and Scramble competition.

His most cited work include:

  • Averting biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas (662 citations)
  • Fission-fusion dynamics: new research frameworks (619 citations)
  • Ecological constraints on group size : an analysis of spider monkey and chimpanzee subgroups (512 citations)

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

Colin A. Chapman focuses on Ecology, National park, Red colobus, Primate and Habitat. His study in Animal ecology, Foraging, Frugivore, Abundance and Predation is done as part of Ecology. His research integrates issues of Competition and Home range in his study of Animal ecology.

His National park research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry, Biodiversity, Biomass and Forestry, Logging. His research investigates the connection between Red colobus and topics such as Cercopithecus ascanius that intersect with problems in Guenon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Population density and Species richness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (101.22%)
  • National park (39.89%)
  • Red colobus (33.92%)

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

  • Ecology (101.22%)
  • Habitat (28.77%)
  • National park (39.89%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Habitat, National park, Primate and Zoology. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biological dispersal and Seed dispersal. In his study, Deforestation is inextricably linked to Species richness, which falls within the broad field of Habitat.

His study in National park focuses on Red colobus in particular. His work deals with themes such as Foraging and Food resources, which intersect with Primate. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Host, Threatened species, Lemur, Chlorocebus aethiops and Frugivore.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales : update 2018 (103 citations)
  • Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales : update 2018 (103 citations)
  • Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales : update 2018 (103 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

Colin A. Chapman mostly deals with Ecology, National park, Biodiversity, Zoology and Agroforestry. His study in Tropical forest, Chlorocebus pygerythrus, Seasonality, Habitat and Amazon rainforest falls under the purview of Ecology. His National park study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Old-growth forest, Climatology, El Niño Southern Oscillation, Endangered species and Wildlife.

The Old-growth forest study combines topics in areas such as Wildlife conservation, Bushmeat and Red colobus. His Zoology study also includes fields such as

  • Host that intertwine with fields like Affect, Juvenile, Deworming and Chlorocebus aethiops,
  • Coevolution that connect with fields like Foraging. His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Forest restoration, Restoration ecology, Biomass, Deforestation and Species richness.
