Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Social psychology
  • Cognition

Robert M. Seyfarth mainly investigates Developmental psychology, Communication, Demography, Animal communication and Alarm signal. When carried out as part of a general Developmental psychology research project, his work on Aggression is frequently linked to work in Genetic relatedness, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Communication research incorporates themes from Sound production and Primate.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Animal ecology, Biological dispersal, Red howler monkey and Free ranging. The Animal communication study combines topics in areas such as Social relation and Cognition. His Cognition course of study focuses on Cognitive psychology and Deception and Mental representation.

His most cited work include:

  • How monkeys see the world (1094 citations)
  • Monkey responses to three different alarm calls: evidence of predator classification and semantic communication (964 citations)
  • How Monkeys See the World: Inside the Mind of Another Species (807 citations)

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

Robert M. Seyfarth mostly deals with Developmental psychology, Demography, Communication, Social psychology and Animal communication. Robert M. Seyfarth studies Developmental psychology, focusing on Aggression in particular. His Demography research integrates issues from Social relation and Ecology, Baboon, Predation, Animal ecology.

In the field of Communication, his study on Animal Vocalizations overlaps with subjects such as Alarm signal. His work on Reciprocal altruism, Social group and Attribution as part of general Social psychology study is frequently connected to Social relationship, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. He interconnects Cognition and Sound production in the investigation of issues within Animal communication.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (27.32%)
  • Demography (21.86%)
  • Communication (17.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2020)?

  • Cognition (13.66%)
  • Social psychology (16.94%)
  • Reproductive success (10.38%)

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

Robert M. Seyfarth spends much of his time researching Cognition, Social psychology, Reproductive success, Developmental psychology and Social cognition. His research integrates issues of Animal communication, Cognitive psychology, Inference and Perception in his study of Cognition. Robert M. Seyfarth focuses mostly in the field of Animal communication, narrowing it down to matters related to Deception and, in some cases, Communication.

His Dominance and Social group study in the realm of Social psychology connects with subjects such as Social relationship. His work investigates the relationship between Reproductive success and topics such as Sociality that intersect with problems in Demography. His Developmental psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Arousal, Affect, Kinship and Temperament, Personality.

Between 2010 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The Evolutionary Origins of Friendship (218 citations)
  • A practical guide to the study of social relationships (115 citations)
  • Affiliation, Empathy, and the Origins of Theory of Mind (88 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Social psychology
  • Cognition

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Reproductive success, Social psychology, Cognition, Social relationship and Developmental psychology. His work carried out in the field of Reproductive success brings together such families of science as Sociality and Primate. His Social psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Natural selection and Demography.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Demography, Competition are connected with Aggression and other disciplines. His Cognition research incorporates elements of Clinical psychology, Animal communication, Communication and Perception. His study on Young adult is often connected to Task as part of broader study in Developmental psychology.
