Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • China

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Demography, Body size, Foraging and Anthropometry. William R. Leonard interconnects Basal metabolic rate, Economic growth and Hominidae in the investigation of issues within Ecology. In his work, William R. Leonard performs multidisciplinary research in Demography and Big Five personality traits and culture.

His Body size study combines topics in areas such as Dietary intake and Humanities. His Foraging research incorporates themes from Rainforest, Range and Homo erectus. His studies deal with areas such as Teenage pregnancy, Birth weight, Gerontology, Multivariate analysis and Ethnic group as well as Anthropometry.

His most cited work include:

  • Three limitations of the body mass index (442 citations)
  • Climatic influences on human body size and proportions: Ecological adaptations and secular trends (277 citations)
  • Comparative primate energetics and hominid evolution (244 citations)

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

Demography, Anthropometry, Ecology, Socioeconomics and Gerontology are his primary areas of study. His study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Basal metabolic rate, Indigenous, Body mass index, Socioeconomic status and Ethnic group. His Anthropometry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocrinology, Obesity and Nutritional status.

His study in Body size and Foraging are all subfields of Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (21.26%)
  • Anthropometry (12.57%)
  • Ecology (11.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Demography (21.26%)
  • Gerontology (7.49%)
  • Anthropometry (12.57%)

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

William R. Leonard focuses on Demography, Gerontology, Anthropometry, Gender studies and MEDLINE. His research in Demography is mostly focused on Child growth. He combines subjects such as Cross-sectional study, Stigma and Social stigma with his study of Gerontology.

His Anthropometry study which covers Nutritional status that intersects with Socioeconomics. In Gender studies, William R. Leonard works on issues like Health promotion, which are connected to Mental health. The various areas that William R. Leonard examines in his MEDLINE study include Anthropology, Human biology and Coronavirus disease 2019.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Metabolic costs and evolutionary implications of human brain development (225 citations)
  • Demographic and Psychosocial Factors Associated With Psychological Distress and Resilience Among Transgender Individuals. (99 citations)
  • Intersex: Stories and Statistics from Australia (45 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • China

His main research concerns Anthropometry, Gerontology, Demography, Homosexuality and Gender studies. His research in Anthropometry focuses on subjects like Body mass index, which are connected to Exercise physiology and Triaxial accelerometer. His Gerontology research includes elements of Blood lipids, Rural setting, Amazonian and Rural population.

He undertakes multidisciplinary investigations into Demography and Adverse conditions in his work. His Homosexuality research includes themes of Social stigma, Community engagement, Sexual identity, Health promotion and Stigma. His research in Gender studies intersects with topics in Mental health, Invisibility and Norm.
