Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Natural selection
  • Genetics

Peter Nonacs mainly focuses on Ecology, Skew, Aggression, Sex ratio and Inclusive fitness. His research ties Zoology and Ecology together. His research integrates issues of Polistes fuscatus and Paper wasp in his study of Aggression.

Investment, Resource, Parental investment and Nest is closely connected to Demography in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Sex ratio. His Inclusive fitness study which covers Kin selection that intersects with Polygyny. The study incorporates disciplines such as Queen mandibular pheromone, Worker policing, Communication and Sex pheromone in addition to Social psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • The role of queen pheromones in social insects: queen control or queen signal? (418 citations)
  • Ant Reproductive Strategies and Sex Allocation Theory (227 citations)
  • MORTALITY RISK VS. FOOD QUALITY TRADE-OFFS IN A COMMON CURRENCY: ANT PATCH PREFERENCES' (180 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Foraging, Nest, Eusociality and Inclusive fitness. His work deals with themes such as Zoology and Aggression, which intersect with Ecology. His Foraging research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Demography, Linepithema and Predation.

His work carried out in the field of Nest brings together such families of science as Animal ecology, Intraspecific competition, Polistes and Reproductive success. His work in Eusociality addresses issues such as Polistes dominula, which are connected to fields such as Dominance. His Inclusive fitness research incorporates themes from Worker policing, Haplodiploidy, Kin selection and Cooperative breeding.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.54%)
  • Foraging (22.92%)
  • Nest (21.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Linepithema (9.38%)
  • Demography (11.46%)
  • Foraging (22.92%)

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

Peter Nonacs mainly investigates Linepithema, Demography, Foraging, Ecology and Evolutionary biology. Within one scientific family, Peter Nonacs focuses on topics pertaining to Liometopum occidentale under Linepithema, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Aggression, Replicate and Categorization. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Investment strategy, Parental investment and Affect.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ephemeral key, Habitat, Perception and Nest. His work on Hymenoptera and Kin selection as part of general Ecology study is frequently connected to Nepotism, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Competition, Flexibility and Kinship.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Wolbachia Horizontal Transmission Events in Ants: What Do We Know and What Can We Learn? (17 citations)
  • Go High or Go Low? Adaptive Evolution of High and Low Relatedness Societies in Social Hymenoptera (10 citations)
  • Habitat complexity and predictability effects on finding and collecting food when ants search as cooperative groups (5 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Natural selection
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Flexibility, Competition and Inclusive fitness. His study in the field of Social evolution also crosses realms of Nepotism and Horizontal gene transfer. He interconnects Perception and Predictability in the investigation of issues within Ecology.

His Flexibility research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cooperative breeding, Sociobiology and Kinship.
