His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Extra-pair copulation, Brood, Paternal care and Evolutionary biology. David F. Westneat does research in Zoology, focusing on Agelaius specifically. As part of the same scientific family, David F. Westneat usually focuses on Extra-pair copulation, concentrating on Polygyny and intersecting with Mating system.
His Brood research focuses on subjects like Animal ecology, which are linked to Population density and Biological evolution. His Paternal care study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Developmental psychology and Sexual conflict, Mating. Many of his research projects under Evolutionary biology are closely connected to Evolution of eusociality and Misrepresentation with Evolution of eusociality and Misrepresentation, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
David F. Westneat mainly focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Animal ecology, Mating and Extra-pair copulation. As a member of one scientific family, David F. Westneat mostly works in the field of Ecology, focusing on Reproductive success and, on occasion, Pair bond. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sperm and Polygyny.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Harem and Phalaropus lobatus. His work deals with themes such as Bunting and Competition, which intersect with Mating. The concepts of his Extra-pair copulation study are interwoven with issues in Communication and Mate guarding.
His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Meta-analysis, Publication bias, Signalling and Animal ecology. His Meta-analysis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive science, Open science and Evolutionary ecology. Animal ecology is a primary field of his research addressed under Ecology.
His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Vegetation. His Life history theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reproductive value, Ficedula, Sparrow and Affect. His studies in Paternal care integrate themes in fields like Parus, Predation and Reproduction.
Trait, Sexual selection, Animal ecology, Mixed effects and Robustness are his primary areas of study. You can notice a mix of various disciplines of study, such as Mechanism, Adaptation, Genetic algorithm, Developmental plasticity and Phenotypic plasticity, in his Trait studies. He has researched Sexual selection in several fields, including Meta-analysis, Publication bias and Social status.
His Animal ecology research integrates issues from Basal metabolic rate, Optimality model and Foraging.
