Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Genus

Robert L. Jeanne spends much of his time researching Ecology, Nest, Foraging, Vespidae and Polybia occidentalis. His work on Animal ecology, Swarm behaviour, Brood and Polybia sericea as part of general Ecology study is frequently connected to Task, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Nest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Polistes, Eusociality and Animal communication.

As part of one scientific family, Robert L. Jeanne deals mainly with the area of Foraging, narrowing it down to issues related to the Predation, and often Vegetation, Species richness and Tropics. Vespidae is a subfield of Hymenoptera that Robert L. Jeanne explores. His Hymenoptera research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pieris and Toxicology.

His most cited work include:

  • A Latitudinal Gradient in Rates of Ant Predation (245 citations)
  • Social biology of the neotropical wasp Mischocyttarus drewseni (242 citations)
  • The swarm-founding Polistinae (214 citations)

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

Robert L. Jeanne focuses on Ecology, Vespidae, Hymenoptera, Nest and Zoology. His research related to Foraging, Polybia occidentalis, Brood, Animal ecology and Swarm behaviour might be considered part of Ecology. His work on Vespidae is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Aculeata.

His work investigates the relationship between Hymenoptera and topics such as Pheromone that intersect with problems in Venom. His work is dedicated to discovering how Nest, Eusociality are connected with Evolutionary biology and other disciplines. His work in the fields of Animal communication, Polistinae and Vespinae overlaps with other areas such as Caste.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.70%)
  • Vespidae (52.59%)
  • Hymenoptera (49.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Ecology (63.70%)
  • Zoology (34.07%)
  • Nest (43.70%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Nest, Foraging and Polistes. In the subject of general Zoology, his work in Vespidae and Polistes fuscatus is often linked to Variation, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Vespidae study results in a more complete grasp of Hymenoptera.

His research in Nest intersects with topics in Resource and Trophallaxis. His study in Foraging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Vespula germanica and Odor. Robert L. Jeanne focuses mostly in the field of Polistes, narrowing it down to matters related to Eusociality and, in some cases, Evolutionary biology.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A mechanical signal biases caste development in a social wasp (53 citations)
  • Does displaying the class results affect student discussion during peer instruction (43 citations)
  • Male Reproductive Behavior of the Social Wasp Polistes fascatus (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Genus

His primary scientific interests are in Zoology, Polistes, Polistes fuscatus, Hymenoptera and Vespidae. His Polistes study is concerned with the larger field of Ecology. When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Eusociality is frequently linked to work in Specialization, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His Polistes fuscatus study incorporates themes from Animal communication, Mating, Hibernation, Foraging and Nest. His work deals with themes such as Aculeata, Brood and Diapause, which intersect with Nest. Robert L. Jeanne studied Hymenoptera and Larva that intersect with Anatomy and Predation.
