Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Insect

Perttu Seppä mainly focuses on Ecology, Gene flow, Genetics, Genetic structure and Biological dispersal. His work on Nest, Hymenoptera and Polistinae as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Myrmica ruginodis and Convention, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work in Gene flow is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Inbreeding.

His Genetics research focuses on Formica exsecta and how it connects with Evolutionary biology. His Genetic structure research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Effective population size and Population size. Perttu Seppä has researched Biological dispersal in several fields, including Habitat destruction, Formica lugubris and Genetic diversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular Population Genetics of Social Insects (108 citations)
  • Gene flow and population viscosity in Myrmica ants (101 citations)
  • Genetic population structure and dispersal patterns in Formica ants : a review (100 citations)

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

Perttu Seppä mainly investigates Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Biological dispersal, Nest and Zoology. His work deals with themes such as Population genetics and Polygyny, which intersect with Ecology. His Evolutionary biology research integrates issues from Genetics, Sympatry, Inbreeding, Genetic structure and Gene flow.

His Biological dispersal study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Effective population size, Isolation by distance, Population size and Formica lugubris. His study in Nest is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Polistes carolina, Polistes, Pupa and Genetic data. Perttu Seppä focuses mostly in the field of Zoology, narrowing it down to matters related to Reproductive isolation and, in some cases, Mate choice, Assortative mating and Nuptial flight.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (91.04%)
  • Evolutionary biology (59.70%)
  • Biological dispersal (41.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Ecology (91.04%)
  • Evolutionary biology (59.70%)
  • Biological dispersal (41.79%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Biological dispersal, Zoology and ANT. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Population genetics and Ecology. He combines Evolutionary biology and Mitochondrial DNA in his studies.

His studies in Biological dispersal integrate themes in fields like Isolation by distance, Gene flow, Panmixia, Genetic diversity and Nest. His work on Hymenoptera and Parasitoid wasp as part of his general Zoology study is frequently connected to Myrmica ruginodis and Presentation, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Hymenoptera research includes themes of Genetics and Egg laying.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Genetic divergence between the sympatric queen morphs of the ant Myrmica rubra. (16 citations)
  • Strong dispersal in a parasitoid wasp overwhelms habitat fragmentation and host population dynamics (12 citations)
  • Evolution of dispersal in ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae): a review on the dispersal strategies of sessile superorganisms (10 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Insect

Perttu Seppä spends much of his time researching Ecology, Sympatric speciation, Intraspecific competition, Biological dispersal and Genetic algorithm. His study in Social evolution extends to Ecology with its themes. Perttu Seppä combines subjects such as Myrmica rubra and Genetic divergence with his study of Sympatric speciation.

His Genetic divergence research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, Nest, Inquiline and Reproductive isolation. The various areas that Perttu Seppä examines in his Biological dispersal study include Parasitoid wasp and Genetic structure, Genetic diversity. Genetic algorithm is a subfield of Evolutionary biology that Perttu Seppä investigates.
