Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Genus

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Zoology, Polistes, Vespidae and Hymenoptera. Paper wasp, Nest, Polistes dominula, Kin recognition and Animal ecology are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study. His work in Zoology addresses subjects such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which are connected to disciplines such as Biological dispersal and Phylogenetics.

The concepts of his Polistes study are interwoven with issues in Parasitism, Brood, Venom and Inclusive fitness. His specific area of interest is Vespidae, where Stefano Turillazzi studies Polistes biglumis. His Hymenoptera research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cuticle and Corpus allatum.

His most cited work include:

  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)
  • Natural history and evolution of paper-wasps (246 citations)
  • Unrelated helpers in a social insect. (221 citations)

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

Ecology, Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Zoology and Nest are his primary areas of study. His study in Paper wasp, Brood, Polistes dominulus, Host and Larva are all subfields of Ecology. The concepts of his Hymenoptera study are interwoven with issues in Cuticle, Anatomy and Predation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Aculeata and Animal ecology in addition to Vespidae. Stefano Turillazzi has included themes like Insect and ANT in his Zoology study. His study in Nest is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Entomology, Sociality and Aggression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (61.45%)
  • Hymenoptera (44.00%)
  • Vespidae (41.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (61.45%)
  • Zoology (37.45%)
  • Nest (34.18%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Zoology, Nest, Hymenoptera and Polistes. His Zoology research includes elements of Host, Entomopathogenic fungus, Metarhizium anisopliae and ANT. His Nest research includes themes of Entomology, Stenogastrinae, Atta and Polistes gallicus.

His Hymenoptera study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Nesting. His Polistes research incorporates themes from Ontogeny, Sensory cue, Anatomy and Insect physiology. His work deals with themes such as Pupa, Larva, Period, Hibernation and Dominance hierarchy, which intersect with Vespidae.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Social wasps are a Saccharomyces mating nest (69 citations)
  • The Rules of Aggression: How Genetic, Chemical and Spatial Factors Affect Intercolony Fights in a Dominant Species, the Mediterranean Acrobat Ant Crematogaster scutellaris. (26 citations)
  • High Varroa mite abundance influences chemical profiles of worker bees and mite-host preferences (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Insect
  • Genus

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Zoology, Nest, Polistes and Stenogastrinae. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Evolutionary biology. His studies deal with areas such as Host, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Abiotic component and Insect physiology as well as Zoology.

His Nest research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Acromyrmex and Morphology. Stefano Turillazzi interconnects Communication, Ontogeny, Eusociality, Genus and Sexual dimorphism in the investigation of issues within Polistes. His Stenogastrinae research is within the category of Vespidae.
