Douglas J. Futuyma mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Genetic variation, Host and Niche. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Caste, Evolutionary ecology, Species level, Sympatric speciation and Life history. Douglas J. Futuyma undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Ecology and Diversification in his work.
His Host research incorporates elements of Zoology, Host plants, Coevolution, Leaf beetle and Adaptation. His Niche research includes themes of Range, Resource, Macrolepidoptera and Habitat. His studies deal with areas such as Ecological niche and Competition as well as Range.
His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Host, Zoology and Ecology. His study in Herbivore, Insect, Coevolution, Niche and Competition is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. His work on Genetic algorithm as part of his general Evolutionary biology study is frequently connected to Lineage, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
The concepts of his Host study are interwoven with issues in Adaptation, Genetic variation and Leaf beetle. His Zoology research includes elements of Alsophila pometaria and Larva. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Anthropology, Systematics and Environmental ethics.
Natural selection, Environmental ethics, Evolutionary biology, Index and Epistemology are his primary areas of study. While the research belongs to areas of Natural selection, he spends his time largely on the problem of Modern evolutionary synthesis, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Genetic drift, Genetic algorithm and Orthogenesis. Douglas J. Futuyma usually deals with Evolutionary biology and limits it to topics linked to Mutation and Deep history.
When carried out as part of a general Epistemology research project, his work on Evolutionary theory is frequently linked to work in Education theory, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Evolutionary ecology research is included under the broader classification of Ecology. Douglas J. Futuyma integrates Ecology with Student teaching in his study.
His main research concerns Natural selection, Evolutionary biology, Epistemology, Adaptation and Ecology. The various areas that Douglas J. Futuyma examines in his Natural selection study include Modern evolutionary synthesis, Expression, Class and Genealogy. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Type, Evolutionary ecology, Inheritance and Mutation.
His Epistemology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mosaic evolution, Evolutionary developmental biology, Punctuated equilibrium and Genetic algorithm. Douglas J. Futuyma focuses mostly in the field of Adaptation, narrowing it down to topics relating to Herbivore and, in certain cases, Trophic level, Utetheisa ornatrix, Biodiversity and Population genetics. His Local adaptation and Community study are his primary interests in Ecology.
