Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Inclusive fitness, Worker policing, Altruism and Demography. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Reproduction and Social evolution. His Inclusive fitness study which covers Kin selection that intersects with Eusociality.

Incentive and Social group is closely connected to Criminology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Worker policing. His Altruism research includes themes of Vespula vulgaris and Selfishness. His Demography course of study focuses on Hymenoptera and Honey bee.

His most cited work include:

  • CONFLICT RESOLUTION IN INSECT SOCIETIES (491 citations)
  • Kin selection is the key to altruism (289 citations)
  • Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality (280 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Zoology, Worker policing, Hymenoptera and Queen. His Ecology study typically links adjacent topics like Reproduction. His Zoology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Pheromone.

His research integrates issues of Demography and Criminology in his study of Worker policing. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phylogenetics and Mating. His Inclusive fitness research integrates issues from Altruism, Social evolution, Kin selection and Natural selection.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (31.67%)
  • Zoology (24.17%)
  • Worker policing (11.25%)

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

  • Zoology (24.17%)
  • Evolutionary biology (9.58%)
  • Vespula vulgaris (8.33%)

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

Tom Wenseleers mainly focuses on Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Vespula vulgaris, Sex pheromone and Insect. His study in the field of Hymenoptera also crosses realms of Division of labour. His work deals with themes such as Gene, Allele and Kinship, which intersect with Evolutionary biology.

The Sex pheromone study which covers Queen that intersects with Communication, Ovary and Queen mandibular pheromone. The various areas that Tom Wenseleers examines in his Insect study include Symbiosis, Honeydew and Acromyrmex echinatior. His Effective population size study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Estimated transmissibility and severity of novel SARS-CoV-2 Variant of Concern 202012/01 in England (218 citations)
  • Estimated transmissibility and impact of SARS-CoV-2 lineage B.1.1.7 in England. (163 citations)
  • Bacterial persistence promotes the evolution of antibiotic resistance by increasing survival and mutation rates. (66 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Insect, Zoology, Queen mandibular pheromone, Sex pheromone and Evolutionary biology. Insect is the subject of his research, which falls under Botany. His work in the fields of Paper wasp overlaps with other areas such as Metapleural gland.

His Queen mandibular pheromone research includes themes of Queen and Ovary. Tom Wenseleers interconnects Pheromone, Dominance, Eusociality, Queen and Reproduction in the investigation of issues within Sex pheromone. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Phylogeography, Phylogenetics, Species complex and Reproductive isolation.
