Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Statistics

Marco Festa-Bianchet mainly investigates Ecology, Ovis canadensis, Reproductive success, Reproduction and Population density. Marco Festa-Bianchet has researched Ecology in several fields, including Population growth and Density dependence. Marco Festa-Bianchet has included themes like Bovidae, Lactation, Predation, Forage and Animal science in his Ovis canadensis study.

While the research belongs to areas of Bovidae, Marco Festa-Bianchet spends his time largely on the problem of Oreamnos americanus, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Capreolus, Zoology, Ungulate, Dominance hierarchy and Female age. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Longevity, Fertility, Sexual selection, Life history theory and Sexual dimorphism. His Reproduction research includes themes of Senescence and Weaning.

His most cited work include:

  • Temporal Variation in Fitness Components and Population Dynamics of Large Herbivores (1293 citations)
  • The status of the world's land and marine mammals: diversity, threat, and knowledge (1045 citations)
  • Population dynamics of large herbivores: variable recruitment with constant adult survival. (1015 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Ovis canadensis, Reproduction, Reproductive success and Zoology. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Offspring, Population density and Animal science. He combines subjects such as Heritability, Forage, Trophy and Life history theory with his study of Ovis canadensis.

His studies deal with areas such as Fecundity, Senescence, Affect and Weaning as well as Reproduction. His study in Reproductive success is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Trade-off and Longevity. His Zoology course of study focuses on Inbreeding and Genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (70.13%)
  • Ovis canadensis (29.19%)
  • Reproduction (28.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (70.13%)
  • Offspring (23.49%)
  • Reproduction (28.19%)

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

Ecology, Offspring, Reproduction, Reproductive success and Zoology are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Trophy and Sexual dimorphism in his study of Ecology. He studied Trophy and Ovis canadensis that intersect with Conservation biology.

The concepts of his Offspring study are interwoven with issues in Animal ecology, Juvenile, Foraging and Sex ratio. His studies deal with areas such as Fecundity, Population density, Mammal and Senescence as well as Reproduction. His work in Reproductive success addresses subjects such as Seasonal breeder, which are connected to disciplines such as Population study.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Intense selective hunting leads to artificial evolution in horn size. (86 citations)
  • Don't forget to look down - collaborative approaches to predator conservation (85 citations)
  • Archiving primary data: Solutions for long-term studies (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Statistics

Marco Festa-Bianchet spends much of his time researching Ecology, Zoology, Ovis canadensis, Sexual selection and Reproductive success. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Phenotypic plasticity, intersects with other areas such as Horn. In Zoology, Marco Festa-Bianchet works on issues like Small population size, which are connected to Inbreeding depression, Outbreeding depression, Population growth, Genetic variation and Inbreeding.

Marco Festa-Bianchet has included themes like Wildlife management, Herbivore, Mating and Sex ratio in his Sexual selection study. His study looks at the relationship between Reproductive success and topics such as Offspring, which overlap with Reproduction. Marco Festa-Bianchet has researched Population density in several fields, including Genetic Fitness and Climate change.
