Kaup untersuchte zahlreiche heutige Insekten, Fische und Vögel sowie ausgestorbene Tiere, beschrieb sie als Erster wissenschaftlich und gab ihnen einen Namen, der oft heute noch gilt. Besondere Verdienste erwarb er sich um die Erforschung der Tierwelt am Ur-Rhein in Rheinhessen aus dem Obermiozän vor etwa zehn Millionen Jahren. Von seinem Forscherfleiß zeugen mehr als a hundred and fifty Publikationen, darunter umfangreiche Monographien und Werke zur zoologischen Systematik. Seine engen Kontakte zu vielen berühmten Naturforschern seiner Zeit vor allem aus Europa und Amerika und seine zahlreichen Auslandsreisen nutzte er dazu, die Sammlungen in Darmstadt durch Tausch und Kauf zu bereichern. Dadurch erreichte das großherzogliche „Naturalien-Cabinet“ bald internationales Niveau.
