The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Eusociality, Zoology, Genetic structure and Genetics. His research integrates issues of Evolutionary biology, Kin selection, Temperate climate and Reproduction in his study of Eusociality. His research on Zoology focuses in particular on Hymenoptera.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Rhinotermitidae, Reticulitermes, Biological dispersal and Microsatellite in addition to Genetic structure. The Rhinotermitidae study combines topics in areas such as Coptotermes and Population genetics. His work carried out in the field of Genetics brings together such families of science as Inbreeding and Bedbugs.
Edward L. Vargo mainly investigates Ecology, Zoology, Reticulitermes, Rhinotermitidae and Hymenoptera. His Ecology research is mostly focused on the topic Fire ant. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Microsatellite, Pheromone and Genetic diversity.
While the research belongs to areas of Reticulitermes, Edward L. Vargo spends his time largely on the problem of Inbreeding, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Habitat. His Hymenoptera research includes themes of Larva and Nest. His study looks at the relationship between Population genetics and fields such as Evolutionary biology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Genetic diversity, Reticulitermes, Range and Ecology. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Inbreeding and Competition. His Genetic diversity research incorporates elements of Population bottleneck and Founder effect.
His work deals with themes such as Insect, Microsatellite, Pathogen and Sex pheromone, which intersect with Reticulitermes. His Range course of study focuses on Invasive species and Biological dispersal and Nest. His work on Nasutitermes corniger and Eastern subterranean termite as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Actinobacteria, Microbial population biology and Microbial ecology, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
His main research concerns Zoology, Genetic diversity, Evolutionary biology, Reticulitermes and Range. His Zoology research includes elements of Bed bug, Pyrethroid and Introduced species. The various areas that Edward L. Vargo examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Population bottleneck, Locus, Ploidy, Evolution of sexual reproduction and Phenotypic plasticity.
Chemical ecology, Pheromone and Hymenoptera is closely connected to Sex pheromone in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Reticulitermes. Range is a primary field of his research addressed under Ecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biological dispersal and Propagule pressure.
