His primary areas of investigation include Vipera aspis, Zoology, Ecology, Reproduction and Predation. Olivier Lourdais works mostly in the field of Zoology, limiting it down to topics relating to Thermoregulation and, in certain cases, Antaresia childreni, Oviparity, Python and Vivipary. Many of his studies on Ecology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Offspring.
His research in Reproduction intersects with topics in Sexual dimorphism and Reproductive success. His Predation study combines topics in areas such as Facultative, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Ectotherm research includes themes of Range, Longitudinal study, Ventral scales and Allometry.
Olivier Lourdais focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Ectotherm, Reproduction and Vipera aspis. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Offspring and Fecundity. His work carried out in the field of Fecundity brings together such families of science as Litter and Embryo.
Olivier Lourdais has researched Zoology in several fields, including Avian clutch size and Facultative. His research integrates issues of Range, Longissimus, Climate change and Temperate climate in his study of Ectotherm. Olivier Lourdais combines subjects such as Lizard, Catabolism, Internal medicine and Endocrinology with his study of Reproduction.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity, Ectotherm and Geography. Olivier Lourdais merges many fields, such as Ecology and Water balance, in his writings. The concepts of his Habitat study are interwoven with issues in Sawdust, Alytes obstetricans, Midwife toad and Substrate.
In Biodiversity, Olivier Lourdais works on issues like Lizard, which are connected to Oviparity and Local adaptation. His Ectotherm study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sex ratio and Reproduction. His Reproduction research includes themes of Mineralocorticoid, Hormone, Endocrinology and Plasma corticosterone.
Ecology, Ectotherm, Habitat, Geography and Evolutionary biology are his primary areas of study. Olivier Lourdais integrates many fields in his works, including Ecology and Water balance. His studies deal with areas such as Population decline, Range, Genetic diversity and Abundance as well as Ectotherm.
Olivier Lourdais has included themes like Agriculture, Biodiversity, Species richness and Life history theory in his Habitat study. There are a combination of areas like Vegetation, Spatial ecology and Global change integrated together with his Geography study. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Offspring and Sex ratio.
