Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Foraging, Honey bee, Gene and Eusociality. Her study on Pollinator is often connected to Social isolation and Social environment as part of broader study in Ecology. Her work carried out in the field of Honey bee brings together such families of science as Characteristics of common wasps and bees, Apicystis bombi and Beekeeping.

In Gene, Amy L. Toth works on issues like Polistes metricus, which are connected to Evolution of eusociality. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology and Paper wasp. Amy L. Toth focuses mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Genome and, in certain cases, Social relation and DNA methylation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Insights into social insects from the genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera (1472 citations)
  • Genetic and genomic analyses of the division of labour in insect societies. (289 citations)
  • RNA Viruses in Hymenopteran Pollinators: Evidence of Inter-Taxa Virus Transmission via Pollen and Potential Impact on Non-Apis Hymenopteran Species (257 citations)

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

Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Honey bee, Eusociality and Polistes are her primary areas of study. The Nest, Apiary, Intraspecific competition and Vespidae research she does as part of her general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Diapause, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Her Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genome, Gene, Molecular evolution, Caste determination and Insect.

Her Honey bee research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pollen, Forage, Foraging and Pollinator. Her research integrates issues of Social evolution and Polistes dominula, Paper wasp in her study of Eusociality. Her Polistes metricus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetics and Gene expression profiling.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (38.89%)
  • Evolutionary biology (35.56%)
  • Honey bee (35.56%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Honey bee (35.56%)
  • Context (10.00%)
  • Pollinator (14.44%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Honey bee, Context, Pollinator, Forage and Zoology. Her Honey bee study incorporates themes from Apidae, Hymenoptera and Agronomy. Many of her Context research pursuits overlap with Ecology, Beekeeping, CRISPR and Genomics.

Her Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Organism, Functional genomics, RNA interference, Cas9 and Behavioural genetics. The Forage study which covers Pollen that intersects with Temperate climate, Overwintering, Queen, Brood and Nutrient. Her study in the field of Gyne, Paper wasp and Polistes fuscatus also crosses realms of Receptivity.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Honey bee virus causes context-dependent changes in host social behavior (22 citations)
  • Diversified Farming in a Monoculture Landscape: Effects on Honey Bee Health and Wild Bee Communities. (8 citations)
  • Hormonal modulation of reproduction in Polistes fuscatus social wasps: Dual functions in both ovary development and sexual receptivity (7 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Amy L. Toth mainly investigates Honey bee, Hymenoptera, Agronomy, Zoology and Fabales. Her studies in Honey bee integrate themes in fields like Pollination, Beekeeping, Transmission, Virus and Host. In the subject of general Hymenoptera, her work in Apidae is often linked to Extensive farming, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

She is studying Monoculture, which is a component of Agronomy. Her work on Gyne, Paper wasp and Polistes fuscatus as part of general Zoology research is frequently linked to Receptivity, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her studies deal with areas such as Pollen, Asteraceae, Asterales and Forage as well as Fabales.
