Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Cognition

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Kin recognition, Communication and ANT. Her Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Sex pheromone. Her study in Sex pheromone is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lasius and Eusociality.

The Queen and Formica cunicularia research she does as part of her general Zoology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Polyergus rufescens and Context, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Her research in Kin recognition intersects with topics in Aculeata, Botany, Sociality and Chemical mimicry. Her ANT research includes elements of Dominance hierarchy and Worker policing.

Her most cited work include:

  • Chemical ecology and social parasitism in ants. (398 citations)
  • Nestmate recognition in social insects and the role of hydrocarbons (279 citations)
  • Conserved class of queen pheromones stops social insect workers from reproducing. (226 citations)

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

Patrizia d'Ettorre mostly deals with Ecology, Zoology, ANT, Communication and Evolutionary biology. Her Ecology study often links to related topics such as Sex pheromone. Her Zoology research incorporates themes from Host and Pheromone.

Her Communication research includes themes of Identity, Perception, Dominance hierarchy, Aggression and Olfactory Learning. Patrizia d'Ettorre has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Genetic variation and Genetic diversity. Her Nest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Atta, Foraging and Carpenter ant.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.93%)
  • Zoology (39.56%)
  • ANT (26.37%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Zoology (39.56%)
  • Olfactory Learning (15.38%)
  • Foraging (14.84%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Zoology, Olfactory Learning, Foraging, Pheromone and Cognitive psychology. Patrizia d'Ettorre has included themes like Insect, Hoverfly and Parasitism in her Zoology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Larva, Queen and Brood parasite in addition to Insect.

Her study looks at the relationship between Olfactory Learning and fields such as Formica fusca, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Her Pheromone research integrates issues from Camponotus aethiops, Argentine ant and Sex pheromone. Patrizia d'Ettorre interconnects Associative learning, Neuroscience, Odor and Animal communication in the investigation of issues within Sex pheromone.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Pheromone components affect motivation and induce persistent modulation of associative learning and memory in honey bees. (9 citations)
  • Pheromone components affect motivation and induce persistent modulation of associative learning and memory in honey bees. (9 citations)
  • Pheromone components affect motivation and induce persistent modulation of associative learning and memory in honey bees. (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Cognition

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pheromone, Olfactory Learning, Sex pheromone, Neuroscience and Associative learning. Her work deals with themes such as Zoology and Camponotus aethiops, which intersect with Pheromone. Her Olfactory Learning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Formica fusca, Extinction and Flexibility.

Her Trail pheromone study in the realm of Sex pheromone interacts with subjects such as Attraction. In the field of Neuroscience, her study on Odor overlaps with subjects such as Neuroethology and Context.
