Nick J. Royle mainly focuses on Begging, Parental investment, Parent–offspring conflict, Ecology and Paternal care. His work in Ecology tackles topics such as Affect which are related to areas like Social group. Paternal care combines with fields such as Sexual conflict, Developmental psychology and Sexual selection in his work.
While the research belongs to areas of Sexual conflict, he spends his time largely on the problem of Per capita, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Demography. The Demography study combines topics in areas such as Mate choice, Association, Reproduction, Animal ecology and Preference. His study in Reproductive success is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carotenoid and Vitamin E.
Ecology, Paternal care, Sexual selection, Nicrophorus vespilloides and Parental investment are his primary areas of study. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology and Reproductive success. As part of one scientific family, Nick J. Royle deals mainly with the area of Reproductive success, narrowing it down to issues related to the Reproduction, and often Antioxidant.
His Paternal care investigation overlaps with Demography, Developmental psychology and Sociality. Nick J. Royle works mostly in the field of Sexual selection, limiting it down to topics relating to Oxidative stress and, in certain cases, Immune system and Reactive oxygen species, as a part of the same area of interest. His study ties his expertise on Parent–offspring conflict together with the subject of Parental investment.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Nicrophorus vespilloides, Mating, Paternal care, Ecology and Sexual conflict. His Mating research focuses on subjects like Evolutionary biology, which are linked to Reproductive success and Captivity. His Paternal care research overlaps with other disciplines such as Demography and Developmental psychology.
Nick J. Royle integrates Ecology with Variation in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Behavioral ecology and Cognitive psychology as well as Sexual conflict. His Sexual selection research includes elements of Mortality rate and Empirical research.
His primary areas of study are Sexual selection, Paternal care, Zoology, Competition and Nicrophorus vespilloides. His Sexual selection research incorporates elements of Developmental psychology, Mortality rate and Empirical research. His Paternal care research spans across into fields like Multiple traits, Demography, Mating, Alternative hypothesis and Brood.
His Zoology study incorporates themes from Fecundity and Niche. His Competition study is associated with Ecology.
