His primary areas of study are Carotenoid, Zoology, Botany, Plumage and Ecology. Kevin J. McGraw has researched Carotenoid in several fields, including Animal ecology, Antioxidant, Vitamin E and Taeniopygia. His Taeniopygia study incorporates themes from Sexual attraction and Yolk.
The Zoology study which covers Sex ratio that intersects with Fledge. The various areas that Kevin J. McGraw examines in his Botany study include Harmonia axyridis, Coccinellidae and Pigment. His Plumage research includes themes of Barn, Carduelis tristis, Hirundo, Melanin and Feather.
Kevin J. McGraw focuses on Zoology, Carotenoid, Plumage, Ecology and Botany. In his study, Maternal effect and Endocrinology is strongly linked to Yolk, which falls under the umbrella field of Zoology. His Carotenoid research integrates issues from Pigment and Taeniopygia.
His Plumage research incorporates themes from Melanin, Feather and Sexual dimorphism. His work on Animal ecology, Seasonal breeder, Foraging and Carpodacus mexicanus as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Ornaments, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Integumentary system, Intraspecific competition and Orange.
Kevin J. McGraw mainly investigates Zoology, Plumage, Carotenoid, Haemorhous mexicanus and Ecology. His research in Zoology is mostly focused on Finch. His research in Plumage intersects with topics in Evolutionary biology, Courtship, Habitat, Feather and Parasitism.
The various areas that Kevin J. McGraw examines in his Feather study include Focal species, Integumentary system, Laniarius atroflavus, Subcutaneous fat and Heron. His study in the field of Xanthophyll also crosses realms of Petrochelidon. His research integrates issues of Agapornis roseicollis, Immunocompetence, Reflectivity and Sickness behavior in his study of Ecology.
His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Finch, Urbanization, Ecology and Pathogen. His work in Zoology addresses issues such as Predation, which are connected to fields such as Heliconius, Competition and Feather. The concepts of his Finch study are interwoven with issues in Boldness, Urban ecology, Animal ecology, Foraging and Songbird.
His work carried out in the field of Urbanization brings together such families of science as Uric acid and Passer. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Plumage, Habitat, Mating and Hummingbird, overlaps with other areas such as Calypte costae. Kevin J. McGraw has included themes like Reflectivity and Courtship display in his Plumage study.
