Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Insect

Ian C.W. Hardy spends much of his time researching Ecology, Parasitoid, Sex ratio, Demography and Avian clutch size. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Fecundity and Reproductive value. His work on Parasitoid wasp as part of general Parasitoid research is often related to Copidosoma, thus linking different fields of science.

When carried out as part of a general Sex ratio research project, his work on Sex allocation is frequently linked to work in Variation, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. He has researched Demography in several fields, including Agonistic behaviour and Statistical model. His Competition research integrates issues from Range and Mortality rate.

His most cited work include:

  • Sex ratios : concepts and research methods (556 citations)
  • Statistical analysis of sex ratios : an introduction. (415 citations)
  • Clutch size in a parasitoid wasp : a manipulation experiment (162 citations)

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

Ian C.W. Hardy mainly investigates Ecology, Parasitoid, Zoology, Sex ratio and Sex allocation. As part of his studies on Ecology, Ian C.W. Hardy frequently links adjacent subjects like Agonistic behaviour. The concepts of his Parasitoid study are interwoven with issues in Fecundity and Longevity.

His Zoology research incorporates themes from PEST analysis and Lepidoptera genitalia. His research in Sex ratio intersects with topics in Range, Social psychology, Evolutionary ecology, Demography and Mating. His work carried out in the field of Sex allocation brings together such families of science as Competition, Parental investment, Statistics and Demographic economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (51.66%)
  • Parasitoid (37.09%)
  • Zoology (23.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Parasitoid (37.09%)
  • Zoology (23.18%)
  • Bethylidae (14.57%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Parasitoid, Zoology, Bethylidae, Hymenoptera and Sex allocation. His Parasitoid study introduces a deeper knowledge of Ecology. His Zoology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Larva, Lepidoptera genitalia, Competition and Longevity.

Ian C.W. Hardy combines subjects such as Longhorn beetle and Foraging with his study of Bethylidae. Sex allocation is a subfield of Sex ratio that Ian C.W. Hardy tackles. His Sex ratio research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Demography and Heritability.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Field evaluation of synthetic and neem-derived alternative insecticides in developing action thresholds against cauliflower pests. (16 citations)
  • Co‐foundress confinement elicits kinship effects in a naturally sub‐social parasitoid (8 citations)
  • Direct and indirect influences of intercrops on the coconut defoliator Opisina arenosella (7 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Insect

Affect, Evolutionary biology, Azadirachtin, Biological pest control and Toxicology are his primary areas of study. Affect connects with themes related to Host in his study. Ian C.W. Hardy integrates many fields in his works, including Azadirachtin, Integrated pest management, Biotechnology, Action, Spodoptera litura and Plutella.

Ian C.W. Hardy interconnects Aphid and Oecophoridae in the investigation of issues within Biological pest control. His Oecophoridae study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Parasitoid. The various areas that Ian C.W. Hardy examines in his Toxicology study include Ecology, Hymenoptera, Brachymeria, Opisina arenosella and Bethylidae.
