Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Liselotte Sundström mainly investigates Ecology, Sex ratio, Inclusive fitness, Biological dispersal and Formica truncorum. Her studies deal with areas such as Zoology and Polygyny as well as Ecology. Her research in Zoology focuses on subjects like Formica exsecta, which are connected to Pupa, Larva, Argentine ant and Brood.

Her work in Inclusive fitness addresses subjects such as Kin selection, which are connected to disciplines such as Altruism, Evolution of eusociality and Eusociality. Liselotte Sundström combines subjects such as Polymorphism, Physiological condition, Formica aquilonia, ANT and Inbreeding with her study of Biological dispersal. Liselotte Sundström works mostly in the field of Formica truncorum, limiting it down to topics relating to Sex allocation and, in certain cases, Mating, as a part of the same area of interest.

Her most cited work include:

  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)
  • Conditional Manipulation of Sex Ratios by Ant Workers: A Test of Kin Selection Theory (244 citations)
  • Sex ratio bias, relatedness asymmetry and queen mating frequency in ants (187 citations)

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

Liselotte Sundström mainly focuses on Ecology, Zoology, Formica exsecta, ANT and Evolutionary biology. Her work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Sex ratio and Polygyny. Liselotte Sundström focuses mostly in the field of Sex ratio, narrowing it down to matters related to Inclusive fitness and, in some cases, Altruism and Kin recognition.

Her research on Formica exsecta also deals with topics like

  • Inbreeding, which have a strong connection to Genetic diversity and Plagiolepis pygmaea,
  • Genetic variation that intertwine with fields like Formica aquilonia. Her Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gene, Wolbachia, Phylogenetic tree, Obligate and Gene flow. Her Mating research includes elements of Haplodiploidy, Kin selection and Biological dispersal.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.32%)
  • Zoology (33.87%)
  • Formica exsecta (34.68%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Formica exsecta (34.68%)
  • Zoology (33.87%)
  • ANT (25.81%)

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

Liselotte Sundström focuses on Formica exsecta, Zoology, ANT, Evolutionary biology and Gene. Her research integrates issues of Entomology, Genetics, Pupa and Chemical communication in her study of Formica exsecta. Her studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Immune system, Immunity and Larva.

The various areas that Liselotte Sundström examines in her Evolutionary biology study include Chromosome 3, Hybrid, Gene pool, Biological dispersal and Gene flow. Her Brood study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Formica fusca, Kin recognition, Social animal and Inclusive fitness. Liselotte Sundström integrates Two temperature and Ecology in her studies.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • An Ancient and Eroded Social Supergene Is Widespread across Formica Ants (12 citations)
  • Widespread hybridization within mound‐building wood ants in Southern Finland results in cytonuclear mismatches and potential for sex‐specific hybrid breakdown (11 citations)
  • Trends in bacterial and fungal communities in ant nests observed with Terminal-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (T-RFLP) and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques-validity and compatibility in ecological studies. (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Her main research concerns Evolutionary biology, Formica exsecta, Gene, Biological dispersal and Isolation by distance. Her Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Illumina miseq, Gene expression, Gene pool and Gene flow, Genetic variation. The concepts of her Formica exsecta study are interwoven with issues in Community dynamics, ANT, Terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and DNA sequencing.

Her Gene and Epigenetics, Methyltransferase, Transcriptome, Phenotype and DNA methylation investigations all form part of her Gene research activities. Her Biological dispersal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Formica fusca, F-statistics, Panmixia and Mitochondrial DNA.
