Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Fire ant, Ecology, Genetics, Social evolution and Social organization are his primary areas of study. His Fire ant study is concerned with the field of Zoology as a whole. In his study, Parapatric speciation, Hybrid, Panmixia and Introgression is inextricably linked to Genetic marker, which falls within the broad field of Ecology.

Kenneth G. Ross combines subjects such as Molecular ecology and Ecology with his study of Social evolution. Kenneth G. Ross interconnects Solenopsis saevissima, Species complex, Monophyly and Reproductive isolation in the investigation of issues within Introduced species. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Botany and Hybrid zone.

His most cited work include:

  • Selfish genes: a green beard in the red fire ant (309 citations)
  • Identification of a major gene regulating complex social behavior. (299 citations)
  • Global Invasion History of the Fire Ant Solenopsis invicta (277 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Fire ant, Ecology, Zoology, Hymenoptera and Evolutionary biology. Kenneth G. Ross has included themes like Genetics, Population genetics, Monogyny, Polygyny and Genetic variation in his Fire ant study. His Introduced species, Animal ecology and Range study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Social organization.

Within one scientific family, Kenneth G. Ross focuses on topics pertaining to Phylogenetic tree under Zoology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Phylogenetics. Kenneth G. Ross has researched Hymenoptera in several fields, including Larva and Loss of heterozygosity. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mitochondrial DNA, Introgression, Genetic structure, Hybrid and Genotype frequency.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Fire ant (64.00%)
  • Ecology (56.00%)
  • Zoology (38.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2020)?

  • Fire ant (64.00%)
  • Ecology (56.00%)
  • Evolutionary biology (27.00%)

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

Kenneth G. Ross mainly focuses on Fire ant, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Genetics. His Fire ant study is focused on Hymenoptera in general. Ecology and Genetic diversity are frequently intertwined in his study.

His Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Sexual maturity and Insect. His Population genetics study deals with Genetic structure intersecting with Range and Gene flow. The various areas that Kenneth G. Ross examines in his Polygyny study include Monogyny and Genotype frequency.

Between 2005 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Global Invasion History of the Fire Ant Solenopsis invicta (277 citations)
  • Species Delimitation: A Case Study in a Problematic Ant Taxon (112 citations)
  • Evolution of gene expression in fire ants: the effects of developmental stage, caste, and species (72 citations)
