Laurent Keller focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Genetics and Eusociality. His work in Ecology addresses issues such as Social organization, which are connected to fields such as Social evolution. His research integrates issues of Longevity and Polygyny, Formica exsecta in his study of Zoology.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Life history, Selection, Argentine ant, Caste determination and Gene flow in addition to Evolutionary biology. His study focuses on the intersection of Genetics and fields such as ANT with connections in the field of Melanogaster, Drosophila melanogaster and Reactive oxygen species. His study explores the link between Eusociality and topics such as Kin selection that cross with problems in Altruism, Group selection, Sex ratio, Sex allocation and Competitive altruism.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Genetics and Hymenoptera. He combines subjects such as Sex ratio and Polygyny with his study of Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Monogyny, Biological dispersal and Gyne, which intersect with Polygyny.
His Zoology research includes elements of Kin selection and Reproductive success. His Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Population genetics, Eusociality, Genome, Selection and Genetic variation. As part of one scientific family, Laurent Keller deals mainly with the area of Genetics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Fire ant, and often Social organization.
Laurent Keller spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Ecology, Zoology and Gene. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Eusociality, Genome, Molecular evolution, Phylogenetics and Selection. His studies in Eusociality integrate themes in fields like Insect and Genomics.
In his work, Fecundity is strongly intertwined with Biological dispersal, which is a subfield of Ecology. His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Competition and Larva. His study on Gene also encompasses disciplines like
His main research concerns Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Ecology, Insect and Social evolution. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Phenotype, Biological evolution, Biological dispersal and Phylogenetics. His Genetics study deals with Eusociality intersecting with Social network, Neuroscience, Social group and Social animal.
His Ecology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Zoology. His Insect research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Courtship, Communication, Sex pheromone, Lasius and Disease. His Social evolution research incorporates themes from Kin selection, Demography, Inclusive fitness, Reproductive success and Harm.
