Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Natural selection
  • Statistics

Olof Leimar spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Phenotypic plasticity, Microeconomics and Genetic variation. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Phenotype, Natural selection, Sensory cue, Genotype and Reproductive value. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Zoology and Contrast.

He combines subjects such as Selection and Set with his study of Phenotypic plasticity. Olof Leimar has researched Microeconomics in several fields, including Affect and Dilemma. His Genetic variation research focuses on Disruptive selection and how it connects with Genetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Life-history trade-offs favour the evolution of animal personalities (1021 citations)
  • Evolution of Fighting Behaviour: Decision Rules and Assessment of Relative Strength (659 citations)
  • Evolution of cooperation through indirect reciprocity (470 citations)

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

Olof Leimar mostly deals with Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Predation, Ethology and Herbivore. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology and Biological dispersal. His Biological dispersal research includes elements of Evolutionary ecology and Habitat.

His Evolutionary biology research focuses on subjects like Phenotypic plasticity, which are linked to Genetic architecture. His Ethology research integrates issues from Big Five personality traits, Social psychology and Personality. His research integrates issues of Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology in his study of Personality.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (40.28%)
  • Evolutionary biology (21.53%)
  • Predation (9.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Biological sciences (8.33%)
  • Cognitive psychology (7.64%)
  • Ethology (9.03%)

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

Olof Leimar mainly focuses on Biological sciences, Cognitive psychology, Ethology, Ecology and Personality. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Social learning, Conformity and Reinforcement learning. His studies in Ethology integrate themes in fields like Salient, Big Five personality traits, Social psychology and Aposematism.

His work deals with themes such as Drosophila melanogaster and Selection, which intersect with Ecology. His work on Behavioral syndrome as part of general Personality research is frequently linked to Red junglefowl, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work carried out in the field of Behavioral syndrome brings together such families of science as Affect, Personality development and Resource holding potential.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A comparison of animal personality and coping styles in the red junglefowl (27 citations)
  • The relationship between learning speed and personality is age- and task-dependent in red junglefowl (19 citations)
  • Winter chilling speeds spring development of temperate butterflies. (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Natural selection

Olof Leimar mainly investigates Biological sciences, Cognitive psychology, Personality, Ethology and Red junglefowl. The various areas that Olof Leimar examines in his Cognitive psychology study include Animal cognition, Aposematism and Reinforcement learning. His research investigates the connection between Animal cognition and topics such as Association that intersect with issues in Animal ecology.

His Animal ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change, Butterfly, Phenology and Temperate climate. His Personality study incorporates themes from Aggression and Resource holding potential. He combines subjects such as Salient, Affect and Salience with his study of Ethology.
