Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Zoology
  • Law

Tim H. Clutton-Brock mostly deals with Ecology, Zoology, Demography, Population density and Reproduction. His research integrates issues of Soay sheep and Reproductive success in his study of Ecology. Tim H. Clutton-Brock combines subjects such as Offspring, Genetics, Juvenile, Primate and Body size with his study of Zoology.

His study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Birth weight, Sexual selection, Sex ratio, Polygyny and Breed. His Population density study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Fecundity, Cervus elaphus and Habitat. His research in Cooperative breeding intersects with topics in Kin selection and Cooperative behavior.

His most cited work include:

  • The evolution of parental care (3100 citations)
  • Red Deer: Behavior and Ecology of Two Sexes (1985 citations)
  • Inverse density dependence and the Allee effect (1316 citations)

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

Tim H. Clutton-Brock mainly investigates Ecology, Demography, Cooperative breeding, Zoology and Offspring. His work deals with themes such as Population density, Soay sheep and Reproductive success, which intersect with Ecology. His study explores the link between Demography and topics such as Reproduction that cross with problems in Fecundity.

In Cooperative breeding, Tim H. Clutton-Brock works on issues like Evolutionary biology, which are connected to Genetic variation. Zoology is closely attributed to Polygyny in his work. His Offspring study typically links adjacent topics like Lactation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (61.37%)
  • Demography (36.86%)
  • Cooperative breeding (37.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cooperative breeding (37.06%)
  • Zoology (25.29%)
  • Ecology (61.37%)

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

Cooperative breeding, Zoology, Ecology, Offspring and Demography are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology, Mammal, Conflict resolution, Cooperative behavior and Reproductive success as well as Cooperative breeding. His Zoology research includes elements of Fecundity, Group living, Reproduction, Division of labour and Mole.

His Ecology research incorporates themes from Population density and Field. His Paternal care study in the realm of Offspring interacts with subjects such as Glucocorticoid hormones. In his study, Collective action and Socioeconomic status is strongly linked to Affect, which falls under the umbrella field of Demography.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Social complexity and kinship in animal societies. (35 citations)
  • Life history responses of meerkats to seasonal changes in extreme environments (28 citations)
  • Density‐dependent dispersal strategies in a cooperative breeder (21 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Internal medicine

Tim H. Clutton-Brock mostly deals with Ecology, Offspring, Biological dispersal, Mammal and Evolutionary biology. Tim H. Clutton-Brock has researched Ecology in several fields, including Field, Sociobiology and Social group. His research in the fields of Maternal stress overlaps with other disciplines such as Glucocorticoid hormones.

His Biological dispersal research includes themes of Competition, Aggression, Cooperative breeding and Emigration. His Cooperative breeding study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Paternal care, Breeding pair, Nest, Testosterone and Social status. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Vertebrate, Frequency and Phenotypic plasticity.
