Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Genus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Predation, Reproduction and Offspring. Ecology is often connected to Biological dispersal in his work. His Zoology research incorporates elements of Hatching and Body size.

Richard Shine combines subjects such as Liasis fuscus, Python and Home range with his study of Predation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fecundity, Litter and Reproductive success. His Offspring study which covers Thermoregulation that intersects with Nocturnal.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological Causes for the Evolution of Sexual Dimorphism: A Review of the Evidence (1047 citations)
  • The potential for behavioral thermoregulation to buffer “cold-blooded” animals against climate warming (646 citations)
  • Invasion and the evolution of speed in toads (633 citations)

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

Ecology, Zoology, Predation, Lizard and Cane toad are his primary areas of study. His study in Habitat, Introduced species, Invasive species, Range and Hatchling is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. His Hatchling research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nest, Incubation and Phenotypic plasticity.

His studies deal with areas such as Offspring and Reproduction as well as Zoology. The concepts of his Offspring study are interwoven with issues in Litter and Sex ratio. His Predation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nocturnal, Animal ecology, Foraging and Sympatric speciation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (77.30%)
  • Zoology (36.75%)
  • Predation (30.04%)

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

  • Ecology (77.30%)
  • Zoology (36.75%)
  • Predation (30.04%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Zoology, Predation, Rhinella marina and Invasive species. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Biological dispersal. Richard Shine combines subjects such as Cane toad, Larva, Offspring and Taxon with his study of Zoology.

His research investigates the connection between Offspring and topics such as Hatchling that intersect with issues in Incubation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Niche differentiation, Ectotherm and Sexual dimorphism. His work deals with themes such as Animal ecology, Bufo marinus, Biological pest control, Introduced species and Adaptation, which intersect with Invasive species.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Human cognition involves the dynamic integration of neural activity and neuromodulatory systems (144 citations)
  • Human cognition involves the dynamic integration of neural activity and neuromodulatory systems (144 citations)
  • Geographic divergence in dispersal-related behaviour in cane toads from range-front versus range-core populations in Australia (53 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Zoology, Range, Cane toad and Invasive species. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Population density, Biological dispersal and Sexual dimorphism. His Zoology research integrates issues from Juvenile, Rhinella marina and Embryo.

His study explores the link between Range and topics such as Phenotypic plasticity that cross with problems in Hydric soil. Richard Shine has included themes like Host, Genome, Evolutionary biology and Introduced species in his Cane toad study. His studies in Invasive species integrate themes in fields like Habitat, Interspecific competition, National park, Rainforest and Aplonis.
