His main research concerns Ecology, Zoology, Bumblebee, Acromyrmex echinatior and Pollinator. His Evolutionary biology research extends to Ecology, which is thematically connected. His Zoology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Herd immunity.
His Bumblebee research integrates issues from Bombus terrestris and Foraging. His Bombus terrestris research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Forage and Nest. His Acromyrmex echinatior research includes themes of Plant disease resistance, Mating, ANT, Metarhizium anisopliae and Host.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Foraging, Acromyrmex echinatior and Host. His study looks at the relationship between Zoology and fields such as Botany, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Foraging study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Animal ecology and Generalist and specialist species.
His Acromyrmex echinatior research focuses on Entomopathogenic fungus and how it connects with Metarhizium anisopliae and Metarhizium. William O. H. Hughes combines subjects such as Obligate, Competition, Resistance and Virulence with his study of Host. The Mating study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology and Inclusive fitness.
William O. H. Hughes mostly deals with Zoology, Ecology, Bumblebee, Foraging and Hymenoptera. His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Host, Honey Bees and Pollinator. His Ecology and Insect, ANT, Obligate, Phenotypic plasticity and Nest investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities.
His work investigates the relationship between Bumblebee and topics such as Bombus terrestris that intersect with problems in Nosema ceranae. The Trail pheromone research he does as part of his general Foraging study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Carcharodon, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. As part of one scientific family, William O. H. Hughes deals mainly with the area of Hymenoptera, narrowing it down to issues related to the Wolbachia, and often Biological dispersal, Fixation, Mating and Genetic drift.
William O. H. Hughes spends much of his time researching Zoology, Ecology, Pollinator, Honey bee and Insect. His Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Anatomy, Foraging, Juvenile hormone and Honey Bees. His Foraging research incorporates elements of Ontogeny and Nest.
His primary area of study in Ecology is in the field of Obligate.
The concepts of his Honey bee study are interwoven with issues in Bombus
