Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Acorn, Woodpecker, Biological dispersal and Cooperative breeding. Walter D. Koenig combines Ecology and Mast in his studies. The Acorn study combines topics in areas such as Zoology, Melanerpes, Fagaceae and Range.

His Woodpecker study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Breed and Brood parasite. His study looks at the intersection of Biological dispersal and topics like Gene flow with Population biology, Behavioral ecology and Pollen. His Cooperative breeding study incorporates themes from Kin selection, Evolutionary ecology, Seychelles warbler, Mating system and Garcia.

His most cited work include:

  • Spatial Synchrony in Population Dynamics (638 citations)
  • Detectability, philopatry, and the distribution of dispersal distances in vertebrates (617 citations)
  • Cooperative breeding in birds : long-term studies of ecology and behavior (538 citations)

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

Walter D. Koenig mainly investigates Ecology, Acorn, Woodpecker, Melanerpes and Cooperative breeding. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology and Biological dispersal. His Zoology study focuses on Seasonal breeder in particular.

His work focuses on many connections between Acorn and other disciplines, such as Fagaceae, that overlap with his field of interest in Agronomy. His Woodpecker research incorporates themes from Demography, Predation, Competition, Reproductive success and Breed. The various areas that Walter D. Koenig examines in his Cooperative breeding study include Helping behavior, Animal ecology and Brood.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (74.32%)
  • Acorn (43.49%)
  • Woodpecker (25.00%)

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

  • Ecology (74.32%)
  • Acorn (43.49%)
  • Woodpecker (25.00%)

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

Ecology, Acorn, Woodpecker, Melanerpes and Cooperative breeding are his primary areas of study. Walter D. Koenig performs multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Valley oak in his works. He interconnects Zoology, Radial growth, Phenology, Reproduction and Ecosystem in the investigation of issues within Acorn.

His work on Seasonal breeder as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Streptopelia, bridging the gap between disciplines. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Melanerpes, focusing on Aggression and, on occasion, Animal ecology, Hoarding and Biological dispersal. His studies in Cooperative breeding integrate themes in fields like Population density, Breeding in the wild, Nest and Saturation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The ecology of cooperative breeding behaviour (46 citations)
  • Inter-annual variation in seed production has increased over time (1900-2014). (37 citations)
  • Inter-annual variation in seed production has increased over time (1900-2014). (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Acorn, Cooperative breeding, Seeding and Mast. His study in Predation, Breeding in the wild, Vegetation dynamics, Saturation and Habitat falls within the category of Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Predation brings together such families of science as Aphelocoma, Seed dispersal, Seed dispersal syndrome and Generalist and specialist species.

His Acorn research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mutualism, Genetic similarity and Pollen, Pollination. His Cooperative breeding research includes elements of Behavioral ecology, Animal sexual behaviour, Brood and Nest. His research integrates issues of Perennial plant, Plant species, Fagaceae and Annual variation in his study of Seeding.
