Ecology, Nest, Temnothorax albipennis, Leptothorax and Tandem running are his primary areas of study. Borrowing concepts from Division of labour, Nigel R. Franks weaves in ideas under Ecology. His Nest research incorporates elements of Sex pheromone, Macrotermes, Brood and ANT.
Nigel R. Franks has researched Temnothorax albipennis in several fields, including Formicoidea, Econometrics and Linkage. The various areas that Nigel R. Franks examines in his Leptothorax study include Roof and Architectural engineering. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Tandem running, narrowing it down to issues related to the Group decision-making, and often Judgement.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Nest, Temnothorax albipennis, Tandem running and Foraging. His work is connected to Aculeata, Leptothorax, Hymenoptera, Animal ecology and Eciton, as a part of Ecology. As a member of one scientific family, Nigel R. Franks mostly works in the field of Nest, focusing on Artificial intelligence and, on occasion, Communication.
His Temnothorax albipennis research integrates issues from Cognitive psychology and Social psychology, Group decision-making. Nigel R. Franks frequently studies issues relating to Quality and Group decision-making. Nigel R. Franks is involved in the study of Foraging that focuses on Forage in particular.
Nigel R. Franks mainly focuses on Temnothorax albipennis, Nest, Ecology, Artificial intelligence and Bayesian probability. Nigel R. Franks has included themes like Animal ecology and Eusociality in his Temnothorax albipennis study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cognitive psychology and Social psychology, Group decision-making.
In Group decision-making, Nigel R. Franks works on issues like Quality, which are connected to Demography, Preference and Private information retrieval. In his works, Nigel R. Franks conducts interdisciplinary research on Ecology and Quorum sensing. His research investigates the connection between Artificial intelligence and topics such as Machine learning that intersect with problems in Sampling, Foraging and Mechanism.
His main research concerns Temnothorax albipennis, Ecology, Nest, Animal communication and Nest site. His study with Temnothorax albipennis involves better knowledge in Artificial intelligence. His work in the fields of Intertidal zone, Collective motion and Invertebrate overlaps with other areas such as Quorum sensing and Social behaviour.
His research integrates issues of Null model, Group decision-making, Econometrics and Evolutionary ecology in his study of Nest. His Animal communication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social psychology and Tandem running. Nigel R. Franks combines subjects such as Quality, Real-time computing and ANT with his study of Nest site.
