Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Social psychology
  • Cognition

Dorothy L. Cheney mainly investigates Communication, Developmental psychology, Demography, Animal communication and Reproductive success. Her studies in Communication integrate themes in fields like Context, Sound production and Primate. Dorothy L. Cheney has included themes like Friendship, Adult female, Physiology and Kinship in her Developmental psychology study.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Howler monkey, Juvenile, Animal ecology, Free ranging and Biological dispersal. Her work carried out in the field of Animal communication brings together such families of science as Social relation and Cognition. Her research in Reproductive success intersects with topics in Zoology and Papio hamadryas ursinus.

Her most cited work include:

  • How monkeys see the world (1094 citations)
  • Monkey responses to three different alarm calls: evidence of predator classification and semantic communication (964 citations)
  • How Monkeys See the World: Inside the Mind of Another Species (807 citations)

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

Developmental psychology, Demography, Communication, Social psychology and Animal communication are her primary areas of study. As a member of one scientific family, Dorothy L. Cheney mostly works in the field of Developmental psychology, focusing on Friendship and, on occasion, Chacma baboon. Her Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Social relation, Ecology, Predation, Animal ecology and Reproductive success.

Her work on Animal Vocalizations as part of general Communication research is frequently linked to Alarm signal, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her work on Social group, Reciprocal altruism and Attribution as part of general Social psychology study is frequently linked to Social relationship, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Animal communication research integrates issues from Cognition and Sound production.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (25.00%)
  • Demography (22.16%)
  • Communication (17.61%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2018)?

  • Cognition (14.77%)
  • Developmental psychology (25.00%)
  • Cognitive science (6.25%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Developmental psychology, Cognitive science, Social cognition and Animal ecology. Her Cognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Animal communication, Perception and Reproductive success. Her Animal communication research includes elements of Clan and Predation.

Her Developmental psychology study incorporates themes from Temperament and Affect. Her Animal ecology research is included under the broader classification of Ecology. Dorothy L. Cheney works mostly in the field of Bonobo, limiting it down to concerns involving Communication and, occasionally, Repertoire.

Between 2013 and 2018, her most popular works were:

  • Vervets revisited: A quantitative analysis of alarm call structure and context specificity. (68 citations)
  • Adaptations for social cognition in the primate brain (59 citations)
  • The evolution of language from social cognition (52 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Social psychology
  • Cognition

Dorothy L. Cheney spends much of her time researching Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Variation, Social cognition and Perception. The Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology, Temperament, Clinical psychology and Reproductive success. Dorothy L. Cheney has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Semantic property, Leopard and Cognitive appraisal.

Her Social cognition research incorporates elements of Cognitive science, Vocal communication and Human language. She combines subjects such as Pragmatics, Animal communication, Communication and Meaning with her study of Perception. Dorothy L. Cheney performs integrative study on Alarm signal and Aggression.
