Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Insect

Mark A. Elgar mostly deals with Ecology, Zoology, Sexual cannibalism, Foraging and Mating. Mark A. Elgar usually deals with Ecology and limits it to topics linked to Sex pheromone and Evolutionary biology. His study explores the link between Zoology and topics such as Body size that cross with problems in Negative correlation and Marine species.

His Sexual cannibalism study incorporates themes from Sexual selection, Sperm competition, Courtship display and Mating system. Mark A. Elgar studied Foraging and Flock that intersect with Passer, Flocking, Forage and Vigilance. Mark A. Elgar has researched Mating in several fields, including Nephila plumipes and Fecundity.

His most cited work include:

  • PREDATOR VIGILANCE AND GROUP SIZE IN MAMMALS AND BIRDS: A CRITICAL REVIEW OF THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE (911 citations)
  • Cannibalism : ecology and evolution among diverse taxa (490 citations)
  • The evolution of pheromone diversity. (267 citations)

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

Mark A. Elgar mainly focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Predation, Foraging and Mating. His Araneoidea research extends to the thematically linked field of Ecology. His research in Zoology tackles topics such as Sexual cannibalism which are related to areas like Nephila plumipes.

His Predation research incorporates themes from Hymenoptera, Competition and Orb. His study in Foraging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Iridomyrmex and Flock. Mark A. Elgar works mostly in the field of Mating, limiting it down to topics relating to Sperm and, in certain cases, Anatomy, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (62.00%)
  • Zoology (41.60%)
  • Predation (21.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (62.00%)
  • Zoology (41.60%)
  • Foraging (20.40%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Zoology, Foraging, Sex pheromone and Communication. Mark A. Elgar performs multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Variation in his works. His Zoology research integrates issues from Sexual cannibalism and Reproductive success.

He interconnects Mutualism, Social psychology, Intraspecific competition, Macropodidae and Jalmenus evagoras in the investigation of issues within Foraging. His Sex pheromone study combines topics in areas such as Mate choice, Adaptive response and Pheromone. His Communication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Insect, Perception, Chemical communication and Body size.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Confirmation bias in studies of nestmate recognition: a cautionary note for research into the behaviour of animals. (46 citations)
  • Pheromonal control: reconciling physiological mechanism with signalling theory. (41 citations)
  • Artificial light at night as a driver of evolution across urban–rural landscapes (38 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Genus

Mark A. Elgar focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Sex pheromone, Insect and Arthropod Antennae. Ecology connects with themes related to Sensory cue in his study. His Zoology research includes themes of Host, Parasitism and Sexual cannibalism.

In Sex pheromone, Mark A. Elgar works on issues like Sexual selection, which are connected to Sex Attractants. His research integrates issues of Communication, Hemiptera, Parasitoid, Hymenoptera and Chemical communication in his study of Insect. His Sexual dimorphism study incorporates themes from Social psychology, Selection and Mating.
