Ecology, Zoology, Immune system, Immunocompetence and Sexual selection are his primary areas of study. His Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Immune defense. His Zoology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Body size.
He has researched Immune system in several fields, including Life history theory and ANT. He works mostly in the field of Immunocompetence, limiting it down to topics relating to Testosterone and, in certain cases, Developmental psychology and Papillomatosis. Markus J. Rantala combines subjects such as Hydrocortisone, Sex characteristics, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Courtship with his study of Sexual selection.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Immune system, Sexual selection and Mate choice. His Immunocompetence research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. His work in Zoology covers topics such as Mealworm which are related to areas like Basal metabolic rate.
His work on Immunity and Innate immune system as part of his general Immune system study is frequently connected to Entomopathogenic fungus, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. He has included themes like Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Sexual dimorphism and Courtship in his Sexual selection study. The Mate choice study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology and Social psychology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Zoology, Immune system, Developmental psychology, Larva and Testosterone. His Zoology research includes themes of Willow, Drosophila melanogaster and Predation. As a member of one scientific family, Markus J. Rantala mostly works in the field of Immune system, focusing on Microbiome and, on occasion, Bacteria.
His work deals with themes such as Mate choice and Big Five personality traits, Social psychology, Personality, which intersect with Testosterone. His work blends Human development and Ecology studies together. His research in the fields of Sympatric speciation overlaps with other disciplines such as Mechanism.
His primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Offspring, Sexual selection, Facial hair and Life history theory. Markus J. Rantala studied Offspring and Sexual dimorphism that intersect with Behavioral neuroscience. Markus J. Rantala focuses mostly in the field of Life history theory, narrowing it down to matters related to Predation and, in some cases, Basal metabolic rate, Zoology and Organism.
His Zoology study incorporates themes from Acquired immune system, Immunology and Antigen. In his works, he conducts interdisciplinary research on Human development and Ecology. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Physical strength.
