Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

Susanne Foitzik focuses on Ecology, Nest, Temnothorax, Zoology and Host. In her research, Susanne Foitzik undertakes multidisciplinary study on Ecology and Leptothorax. The various areas that Susanne Foitzik examines in her Nest study include Obligate and Competition.

Her work on Temnothorax nylanderi as part of general Temnothorax study is frequently linked to Formicinae, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Zoology research integrates issues from Phylogenetics, Reproduction and Genetic divergence. Her Host study frequently links to other fields, such as Coevolution.

Her most cited work include:

  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)
  • Apparent Dear‐enemy Phenomenon and Environment‐based Recognition Cues in the Ant Leptothorax nylanderi (163 citations)
  • Nest site limitation and colony takeover in the ant Leptothorax nylanderi (128 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Zoology, Host, Nest and Temnothorax. Her Ecology research focuses on Aggression and how it connects with Personality. The concepts of her Zoology study are interwoven with issues in Genetics, Longevity and Inbreeding.

Her Host course of study focuses on Coevolution and Obligate. Susanne Foitzik has researched Nest in several fields, including Intraspecific competition, Foraging, Competition and Polygyny. As part of one scientific family, Susanne Foitzik deals mainly with the area of Temnothorax, narrowing it down to issues related to the Phylogenetics, and often Phylogenetic tree.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (72.55%)
  • Zoology (41.83%)
  • Host (38.56%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Zoology (41.83%)
  • ANT (20.92%)
  • Longevity (9.15%)

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

Zoology, ANT, Longevity, Host and Fecundity are her primary areas of study. Susanne Foitzik specializes in Zoology, namely Temnothorax. As a part of the same scientific family, Susanne Foitzik mostly works in the field of ANT, focusing on Evolutionary biology and, on occasion, Foraging.

Her Host research incorporates elements of Nest and Temnothorax nylanderi. Her study on Coevolution also encompasses disciplines like

  • Ecology most often made with reference to Regulation of gene expression,
  • Honey bee, which have a strong connection to Microbiome. Her Phenotypic plasticity study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Trait.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Long-lived Temnothorax ant queens switch from investment in immunity to antioxidant production with age. (19 citations)
  • Gene expression is more strongly associated with behavioural specialization than with age or fertility in ant workers (17 citations)
  • Tandem-running and scouting behaviour are characterized by up-regulation of learning and memory formation genes within the ant brain. (8 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

Her main research concerns Nest, Host, Evolutionary biology, Temnothorax and Coevolution. Susanne Foitzik integrates many fields in her works, including Nest and Temnothorax americanus. Her Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Transcriptome and Gene.

Her Temnothorax study is associated with Zoology. The Coevolution study which covers Regulation of gene expression that intersects with Ecology. Her research integrates issues of Affect and Aggression in her study of Ecology.
