Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Habitat

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Animal science, Zoology, Thermoregulation and Basal metabolic rate. His research investigates the connection between Ecology and topics such as Doubly labeled water that intersect with problems in Ground squirrel. His work in Animal science addresses subjects such as Energetics, which are connected to disciplines such as Kin selection, Cooperative breeding, Litter and Obligate.

He is involved in the study of Zoology that focuses on Mammal in particular. The Homeothermy research Michael Scantlebury does as part of his general Thermoregulation study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Extant taxon, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The various areas that Michael Scantlebury examines in his Basal metabolic rate study include Energy expenditure and Rhabdomys pumilio.

His most cited work include:

  • Huddling in groups leads to daily energy savings in free‐living African Four‐Striped Grass Mice, Rhabdomys pumilio (89 citations)
  • Testosterone levels in dominant sociable males are lower than in solitary roamers: physiological differences between three male reproductive tactics in a sociably flexible mammal. (75 citations)
  • The energetics of lactation in cooperatively breeding meerkats Suricata suricatta. (70 citations)

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

Michael Scantlebury mostly deals with Ecology, Zoology, Animal science, Basal metabolic rate and Thermoregulation. All of his Ecology and Habitat, Burrow, Sexual selection, Salinity and Arid investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. His work deals with themes such as Cryptomys hottentotus, Sociality and Parasitism, which intersect with Zoology.

His Animal science research includes themes of Energy expenditure, Doubly labeled water, Reproduction, Energetics and Canis. His Energetics study combines topics in areas such as Litter and Allometry. The concepts of his Thermoregulation study are interwoven with issues in Rodent and Rhabdomys pumilio.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (109.09%)
  • Zoology (58.44%)
  • Animal science (31.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2019)?

  • Ecology (109.09%)
  • Zoology (58.44%)
  • Burrow (25.97%)

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

Michael Scantlebury mainly investigates Ecology, Zoology, Burrow, Sciurus and Competition. His study on Ecology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Sexual dimorphism. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biotic component, Cryptomys hottentotus, Sociality, Grassland and Parasitism.

His work in Burrow addresses issues such as Sexual selection, which are connected to fields such as Bathyergus, Fossorial and Cape dune mole-rat. His Sciurus study also includes fields such as

  • Sciurus carolinensis which intersects with area such as Veterinary medicine,
  • Introduced species that connect with fields like Feces. In Habitat, Michael Scantlebury works on issues like Mediterranean climate, which are connected to Animal science.

Between 2011 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of animal movement patterns using tri-axial magnetometry (50 citations)
  • Tri-axial accelerometers quantify behaviour in the Eurasian badger ( Meles meles ): towards an automated interpretation of field data (48 citations)
  • Cheetahs, Acinonyx jubatus, balance turn capacity with pace when chasing prey (34 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Habitat

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Zoology, Introduced species, Sciurus and Artificial intelligence. His study deals with a combination of Ecology and Pace. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Population Decrease and Wildlife conservation.

His Introduced species research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Veterinary medicine and Sciurus carolinensis. Many of his studies on Sciurus apply to Feces as well. His Artificial intelligence investigation overlaps with Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Movement, Animal ecology and Heading.
