Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Zoology, Acromyrmex echinatior, Acromyrmex and Botany. His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Evolutionary biology. His work in the fields of Zoology, such as Myrmica, Phengaris and Sperm competition, intersects with other areas such as Parasite hosting.

The concepts of his Acromyrmex echinatior study are interwoven with issues in Mutualism, Plant disease resistance, Entomopathogenic fungus, Escovopsis and Caste determination. As part of one scientific family, Jacobus J. Boomsma deals mainly with the area of Acromyrmex, narrowing it down to issues related to the Sympatric speciation, and often Entomology, Emery's rule, Pseudoatta and Inquiline. His Botany study which covers Host that intersects with Convergent evolution.

His most cited work include:

  • Paternity in eusocial Hymenoptera (397 citations)
  • The evolution of fungus-growing termites and their mutualistic fungal symbionts. (306 citations)
  • The genome of the fire ant Solenopsis invicta (295 citations)

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

Jacobus J. Boomsma spends much of his time researching Ecology, Zoology, Botany, Acromyrmex echinatior and Acromyrmex. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Fungus-growing ants. His research integrates issues of Sperm, Host and Polygyny in his study of Zoology.

His research in Botany intersects with topics in Symbiosis and Escovopsis. The Acromyrmex echinatior study combines topics in areas such as Metapleural gland, Genetics, Entomopathogenic fungus, Animal ecology and Genetic variation. His research investigates the connection between Mating and topics such as Sex ratio that intersect with issues in Demography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.70%)
  • Zoology (34.92%)
  • Botany (19.55%)

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

  • Zoology (34.92%)
  • Acromyrmex echinatior (19.83%)
  • Botany (19.55%)

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

His main research concerns Zoology, Acromyrmex echinatior, Botany, Symbiosis and Evolutionary biology. His biological study deals with issues like Sperm, which deal with fields such as Mating and Reproduction. His Brood study in the realm of Botany interacts with subjects such as Pseudonocardia.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mutualism, Acromyrmex, Phylogenetics, Lineage and ANT in addition to Symbiosis. His study on Mutualism is covered under Ecology. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cytochrome b and Species complex.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Superorganismality and caste differentiation as points of no return: how the major evolutionary transitions were lost in translation. (88 citations)
  • Superorganismality and caste differentiation as points of no return: how the major evolutionary transitions were lost in translation. (88 citations)
  • Reciprocal genomic evolution in the ant-fungus agricultural symbiosis (63 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genus

Jacobus J. Boomsma focuses on Zoology, Symbiosis, Botany, Fungus and ANT. Jacobus J. Boomsma works in the field of Zoology, focusing on Acromyrmex echinatior in particular. His Symbiosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Domestication, Phylogenetics, Lineage and Agriculture.

Jacobus J. Boomsma is studying Acromyrmex, which is a component of Botany. Jacobus J. Boomsma works mostly in the field of Acromyrmex, limiting it down to topics relating to Escovopsis and, in certain cases, Trachymyrmex. His Cultivar research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mutualism, Ecology and Foraging.
