His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Zoology, Scathophaga stercoraria, Sexual selection and Sexual dimorphism. His Cline research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fecundity and Reproductive success.
He combines subjects such as Avian clutch size, Larva, Scathophagidae, Adaptation and Bergmann's rule with his study of Scathophaga stercoraria. Wolf U. Blanckenhorn interconnects Anatomy, Fecundity selection and Directional selection in the investigation of issues within Sexual selection. His research on Sexual dimorphism focuses in particular on Rensch's rule.
Wolf U. Blanckenhorn mostly deals with Ecology, Zoology, Scathophaga stercoraria, Sexual selection and Scathophagidae. His Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Fecundity and Reproductive success. His Scathophaga stercoraria research integrates issues from Avian clutch size, Reproduction, Natural selection, Larva and Animal science.
His Sexual selection study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetics, Fluctuating asymmetry, Fecundity selection and Directional selection. His Scathophagidae research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pupa, Juvenile, Scathophaga, Veterinary medicine and Sperm. His research investigates the connection with Sexual dimorphism and areas like Genetic correlation which intersect with concerns in Quantitative genetics.
His primary areas of investigation include Sepsidae, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Sexual dimorphism and Sexual selection. His Sepsidae study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Allopatric speciation, Ecological niche, Sympatry, Habitat and Directional selection. Wolf U. Blanckenhorn studies Scathophaga stercoraria, a branch of Zoology.
His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Interspecific competition, Natural selection, Adaptation, Biological dispersal and Phenotypic plasticity. His Sexual selection research incorporates themes from Mating and Mating system. His Intraspecific competition study is related to the wider topic of Ecology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Sexual dimorphism, Sepsidae and Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Adaptation, Biological dispersal and Phenotypic plasticity in addition to Evolutionary biology. He works mostly in the field of Adaptation, limiting it down to topics relating to Isolation by distance and, in certain cases, Natural selection, Scathophaga stercoraria and Scathophagidae.
His Zoology research incorporates themes from Fecundity, Reproduction, Larva and Maternal effect. In his work, Body size and Genic capture is strongly intertwined with Sexual selection, which is a subfield of Sexual dimorphism. Many of his research projects under Sepsidae are closely connected to Trait with Trait, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
