Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Ecology

Pekka Pamilo focuses on Ecology, Genetics, Nest, Zoology and Locus. Pekka Pamilo has included themes like Biological dispersal, Gene flow, Genetic diversity and Polygyny in his Ecology study. His Polygyny research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology, Hymenoptera, Sex ratio, Mating system and Genetic relatedness.

His work in Allele, Genetic marker, Nucleotide diversity, Gene and Genome are all subfields of Genetics research. His Nest study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Population genetics. His research integrates issues of Sociality and Formica exsecta in his study of Microsatellite.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution of the Zfx and Zfy genes: rates and interdependence between the genes. (452 citations)
  • The genome of the fire ant Solenopsis invicta (295 citations)
  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)

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

Pekka Pamilo mainly investigates Ecology, Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Polygyny. His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biological dispersal and Genetic diversity. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Population genetics, Mitochondrial DNA, Inbreeding, Formica exsecta and Gene flow.

Pekka Pamilo works mostly in the field of Formica exsecta, limiting it down to topics relating to Microsatellite and, in certain cases, ANT. The concepts of his Zoology study are interwoven with issues in Genetic distance, Wolbachia and Locus. In his work, Worker policing, Demography, Kin selection and Eusociality is strongly intertwined with Sex ratio, which is a subfield of Polygyny.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (50.38%)
  • Genetics (45.11%)
  • Evolutionary biology (39.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2017)?

  • Evolutionary biology (39.85%)
  • Ecology (50.38%)
  • Zoology (32.33%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Zoology, Genetics and Hymenoptera. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Population genetics, Natural selection, Eusociality, Mitochondrial DNA and Allele frequency. His work deals with themes such as Biological dispersal and Loss of heterozygosity, which intersect with Ecology.

He has researched Biological dispersal in several fields, including Habitat fragmentation, Animal ecology and Formica polyctena. His studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Phylogenetics, Wolbachia and Phylogenetic tree. His study in Introgression, Gene, Haplodiploidy and Genetic variation falls under the purview of Genetics.

Between 2008 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • The genome of the fire ant Solenopsis invicta (295 citations)
  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)
  • Low enzyme gene variability in Hymenoptera as a consequence of haplodiploidy (76 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Ecology

Pekka Pamilo mainly investigates Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Hymenoptera, Gene and Haplodiploidy. Pekka Pamilo combines subjects such as Pogonomyrmex and ANT with his study of Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Genetic linkage, Caste determination, Introgression and Reproductive isolation.

He interconnects Habitat fragmentation, Animal ecology and Biological dispersal in the investigation of issues within Hymenoptera. His Genomics, Genome and Negative selection study in the realm of Gene connects with subjects such as Drosophila. The Haplodiploidy study combines topics in areas such as Population genetics, Genetic structure, Disjunct, Inbreeding and Polygyny.
