Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Social psychology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Developmental psychology, Captivity, Animal welfare, Ecology and Stereotypy. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Coping, Basal and Perseveration. Her Coping research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zero tolerance and Environmental enrichment.

In her research, Fur farming, Food deprivation and Human physical appearance is intimately related to Mustelidae, which falls under the overarching field of Captivity. Her HUBzero and Animal-assisted therapy study, which is part of a larger body of work in Animal welfare, is frequently linked to Control methods and Zinc phosphide, bridging the gap between disciplines. Georgia Mason combines topics linked to Zoology with her work on Ecology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Stereotypies: a critical review. (882 citations)
  • Can't stop, won't stop: is stereotypy a reliable animal welfare indicator? (377 citations)
  • Stereotypic Animal Behaviour: Fundamentals and Applications to Welfare (340 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Developmental psychology, Mink, Zoology, Ecology and Animal welfare. Georgia Mason has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Environmental enrichment, Perseveration and Disinhibition. Her work deals with themes such as Litter, Animal science and Boredom, which intersect with Mink.

Her work in the fields of Ecology, such as Captivity and Foraging, intersects with other areas such as Stereotypy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Animal Welfare and Captive breeding in addition to Captivity. Her Animal husbandry research extends to Animal welfare, which is thematically connected.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (23.23%)
  • Mink (20.71%)
  • Zoology (19.70%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (18.69%)
  • Mink (20.71%)
  • Zoology (19.70%)

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

Georgia Mason mostly deals with Ecology, Mink, Zoology, Animal welfare and Developmental psychology. In general Ecology, her work in Foraging and Captivity is often linked to Lemur linking many areas of study. Her Mink research includes themes of Boredom, Environmental enrichment and Predation.

Her Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Neovison and American mink. Georgia Mason focuses mostly in the field of Animal welfare, narrowing it down to topics relating to Animal science and, in certain cases, Enclosure and Nest box. Her Developmental psychology research includes elements of Logistic regression, Physiology and Rhesus macaque.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Days and Nights of Zoo Elephants: Using Epidemiology to Better Understand Stereotypic Behavior of African Elephants (Loxodonta africana) and Asian Elephants (Elephas maximus) in North American Zoos. (44 citations)
  • Play and optimal welfare: Does play indicate the presence of positive affective states? (40 citations)
  • Investigating anhedonia in a non-conventional species: Do some riding horses Equus caballus display symptoms of depression? (30 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Social psychology

Developmental psychology, Animal welfare, Neuroscience, Environmental enrichment and Mink are her primary areas of study. She has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Internal medicine, Physiology and Neovison. Her research on Animal welfare frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Replicate.

Her Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Wheel running, Facial expression, Artificial intelligence and CATS. Her research in Environmental enrichment intersects with topics in Autism and Aggression. Her work on American mink as part of general Mink research is often related to Lying, thus linking different fields of science.
