Dr. Rosengaus’ research tries to understand the factors that may have selected for the evolution of insect sociality. This work is at the interface of evolutionary biology, behavioral and chemical ecology, immunology and genetics. Social insects represent excellent social test organisms to answer questions about the emerging field of “socio-eco-immunology”. Field work takes place at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama and at the Redwoods in California.
