Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Zoology, Aculeata, Hymenoptera and Honey bee. As part of his studies on Ecology, Benjamin P. Oldroyd often connects relevant subjects like Drone. Benjamin P. Oldroyd has included themes like Apis cerana, Kin selection and Reproduction in his Zoology study.

His Aculeata study combines topics in areas such as Apidae, Microsatellite and Animal ecology. His work in Hymenoptera addresses issues such as Evolutionary biology, which are connected to fields such as Phylogeography, Mitochondrial DNA and Inbreeding. The Honey bee study combines topics in areas such as Genetics, Genetic diversity, Phenotype, Foraging and Brood.

His most cited work include:

  • Ancestral Monogamy Shows Kin Selection Is Key to the Evolution of Eusociality (462 citations)
  • What's killing American honey bees? (377 citations)
  • Honey bee nest thermoregulation: diversity promotes stability (330 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Zoology, Honey bee, Apidae and Hymenoptera. His study in Apis florea, Animal ecology, Swarming, Honey Bees and Nest falls within the category of Ecology. In his research on the topic of Zoology, Ovary is strongly related with Apis cerana.

He has researched Honey bee in several fields, including Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Foraging and Genetic diversity. He works in the field of Hymenoptera, namely Aculeata. His Brood research includes themes of Drone and Sex pheromone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (49.84%)
  • Zoology (43.17%)
  • Honey bee (37.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Honey bee (37.78%)
  • Zoology (43.17%)
  • Ecology (49.84%)

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

Benjamin P. Oldroyd mainly focuses on Honey bee, Zoology, Ecology, Genetics and Evolutionary biology. His studies deal with areas such as Apis cerana, Royal jelly and Inbreeding as well as Honey bee. His work on Brood as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Queen, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Brood research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nest and Mating. His Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Genetic structure. His work deals with themes such as Eusociality and Hymenoptera, which intersect with Evolutionary biology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Queen signals in a stingless bee: suppression of worker ovary activation and spatial distribution of active compounds (39 citations)
  • An invasive social insect overcomes genetic load at the sex locus (32 citations)
  • Parent-of-origin effects on genome-wide DNA methylation in the Cape honey bee (Apis mellifera capensis) may be confounded by allele-specific methylation (32 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Benjamin P. Oldroyd focuses on Ecology, Honey bee, Genetics, Zoology and Ovary. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetic genealogy and Drone. His Honey bee research incorporates elements of Apis cerana and Toxicology.

His research integrates issues of Evolutionary biology, Sucrose solution, Founder effect and Brood in his study of Apis cerana. His research investigates the link between Ovary and topics such as Sterility that cross with problems in Eusociality, Candidate gene and Kin selection. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Parthenogenesis, concentrating on Modes of reproduction and intersecting with Hymenoptera.
