Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Felicia Keesing spends much of her time researching Ecology, Biodiversity, Species diversity, Peromyscus and Lyme disease. Her research on Ecology often connects related topics like Vector. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Communicable disease transmission, Infectious disease and Transmission.

Felicia Keesing combines subjects such as Species richness and Disease reservoir with her study of Species diversity. Her Peromyscus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Population density and Ixodes scapularis. Her study looks at the relationship between Lyme disease and topics such as Tick, which overlap with Parasitism.

Her most cited work include:

  • Impacts of biodiversity on the emergence and transmission of infectious diseases (1031 citations)
  • Effects of species diversity on disease risk. (955 citations)
  • The ecology of infectious disease: Effects of host diversity and community composition on Lyme disease risk (770 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Tick, Lyme disease, Ixodes scapularis and Biodiversity. Her research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Population density. Her studies deal with areas such as Zoology, Nymph and Acaricide as well as Tick.

Tick vector is closely connected to Demography in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Lyme disease. Her work investigates the relationship between Ixodes scapularis and topics such as Abundance that intersect with problems in Deciduous and Odocoileus. Felicia Keesing works mostly in the field of Biodiversity, limiting it down to topics relating to Species diversity and, in certain cases, Species richness, as a part of the same area of interest.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (59.18%)
  • Tick (26.53%)
  • Lyme disease (26.53%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Tick (26.53%)
  • Ixodes scapularis (25.51%)
  • Tick-borne disease (10.20%)

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

Felicia Keesing spends much of her time researching Tick, Ixodes scapularis, Tick-borne disease, Zoology and Lyme disease. Her work on Ixodes and Ixodidae as part of general Tick study is frequently linked to Transmission, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Ixodes scapularis research is covered under the topics of Ecology and Larva.

Her Ecology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Infectious disease. Her Zoology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Space use, Ungulate, Saccostomus, Host and Acaricide. Her study in Lyme disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carnivore, Landscape epidemiology, Vector and Anaplasma phagocytophilum.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Tick-borne disease risk in a forest food web. (50 citations)
  • Quantifying dilution and amplification in a community of hosts for tick-borne pathogens (38 citations)
  • Is biodiversity bad for your health (27 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ixodes scapularis, Biodiversity, Tick and Ecosystem services. Her study in Community, Nymph, Species richness, Predation and Intraspecific competition are all subfields of Ecology. Her Ixodes scapularis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Tick-borne disease, Landscape epidemiology, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Lyme disease and Carnivore.

Her research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Infectious disease, Emerging infectious disease and Natural ecosystem. Felicia Keesing interconnects Abundance, Metarhizium brunneum, Entomopathogenic fungus and Lawn in the investigation of issues within Tick. The study incorporates disciplines such as Transmission, Wildlife conservation and Grazing in addition to Ecosystem services.
