Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Zoology

His main research concerns Ecology, Wood ducks, Aix sponsa, Nest and Hatching. His research in Ecology is mostly focused on Reproduction. Wood ducks is often connected to Animal science in his work.

His studies deal with areas such as Avian clutch size, Seasonal breeder and Precocial as well as Animal science. Nest is connected with Maternal effect and Incubation period in his study. His Hatching research focuses on Zoology and how it relates to Philopatry, Natal homing, Biological dispersal, Physiological condition and Waterfowl.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological, evolutionary, and conservation implications of incubation temperature‐dependent phenotypes in birds (155 citations)
  • Maternal effects in Wood Ducks: incubation temperature influences incubation period and neonate phenotype (133 citations)
  • Physiological condition of autumn-banded mallards and its relationship to hunting vulnerability (112 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Aix sponsa, Wood ducks, Animal science and Nest. His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Zoology. His work carried out in the field of Aix sponsa brings together such families of science as Avian clutch size, Immunology, Immune system and Hatching.

His research in Wood ducks intersects with topics in Philopatry, Vital rates, Endocrinology and Reproduction. Gary R. Hepp has included themes like Courtship and Reproductive success in his Animal science study. His research integrates issues of Morning and Natal homing in his study of Nest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.89%)
  • Aix sponsa (50.00%)
  • Wood ducks (41.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Ecology (63.89%)
  • Aix sponsa (50.00%)
  • Zoology (20.83%)

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

Gary R. Hepp mainly investigates Ecology, Aix sponsa, Zoology, Hatching and Nest. In the subject of general Ecology, his work in Wood ducks, Habitat and Wildlife is often linked to Incubation temperature, thereby combining diverse domains of study. He has researched Aix sponsa in several fields, including Precocial, Immunology, Immune system, Reproductive success and Animal science.

The various areas that Gary R. Hepp examines in his Zoology study include American black and Hatchling. Gary R. Hepp applies his multidisciplinary studies on Hatching and Incubation period in his research. His research on Nest focuses in particular on Avian clutch size.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Ecological, evolutionary, and conservation implications of incubation temperature‐dependent phenotypes in birds (155 citations)
  • Incubation temperature affects multiple measures of immunocompetence in young wood ducks (Aix Sponsa). (67 citations)
  • Warm Is Better: Incubation Temperature Influences Apparent Survival and Recruitment of Wood Ducks (Aix sponsa) (46 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Zoology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Aix sponsa, Ecology, Hatching, Hatchling and Maternal effect. His studies link Precocial with Aix sponsa. The subject of his Hatching research is within the realm of Animal science.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Bird egg, Restricted diet and Reproductive success in addition to Animal science. His Hatchling research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Zoology, Nest, Immunocompetence, Immune system and Wood ducks. His work on Avian clutch size as part of his general Nest study is frequently connected to Phenotypic trait and Paternal care, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
