Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Biochemistry

Alexandre V. Chaves spends much of his time researching Rumen, Food science, Dry matter, Fermentation and Essential oil. Alexandre V. Chaves focuses mostly in the field of Rumen, narrowing it down to topics relating to Biotechnology and, in certain cases, Metagenomics, Antimicrobial, Ruminant, Pathogenic bacteria and Methanogenesis. His Food science research incorporates themes from Dairy cattle and Botany.

His Dry matter research integrates issues from Digestion, Forage and Grazing. His Carvacrol study, which is part of a larger body of work in Essential oil, is frequently linked to Cinnamaldehyde, bridging the gap between disciplines. His studies deal with areas such as Fodder and Protein degradation as well as Animal science.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of plant-derived essential oils in ruminant nutrition and production (310 citations)
  • Feeding saponin-containing Yucca schidigera and Quillaja saponaria to decrease enteric methane production in dairy cows. (151 citations)
  • Effects of garlic and juniper berry essential oils on ruminal fermentation and on the site and extent of digestion in lactating cows. (136 citations)

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

Alexandre V. Chaves focuses on Dry matter, Animal science, Rumen, Agronomy and Fermentation. His Dry matter research includes elements of Silage, Digestion and Distillers grains. Alexandre V. Chaves has researched Animal science in several fields, including Environmental management system, Methane production and Fodder, Botany.

His Rumen research is classified as research in Food science. His study looks at the intersection of Agronomy and topics like Latin square with Monensin and Completely randomized design. His Fermentation research incorporates elements of Ruminant, Neutral Detergent Fiber and Methanogenesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Dry matter (60.00%)
  • Animal science (57.00%)
  • Rumen (46.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Animal science (57.00%)
  • Rumen (46.00%)
  • Fermentation (30.00%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Rumen, Fermentation, Dry matter and Forage. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Canola, Botany and Feces. His Rumen study introduces a deeper knowledge of Food science.

He has included themes like Hay, Silage, Completely randomized design and Palatability in his Fermentation study. He combines subjects such as Methane emissions, Methane production, Industrial fermentation, Propionate and Carbon dioxide with his study of Dry matter. His Forage study results in a more complete grasp of Agronomy.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Impacts of Cereal Ergot in Food Animal Production (34 citations)
  • Comparative genomics of Enterococcus spp. isolated from bovine feces. (29 citations)
  • Coupling bio-logging with nutritional geometry to reveal novel insights into the foraging behaviour of a plunge-diving marine predator (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biochemistry
  • Botany

Alexandre V. Chaves mainly investigates Dry matter, Food science, Fermentation, Rumen and Hay. His Dry matter research is within the category of Animal science. His work deals with themes such as Incubation temperature, Methane production, Methane and Biotechnology, which intersect with Animal science.

His Food science study incorporates themes from Forage and Animal nutrition. His Forage study incorporates themes from Butyrivibrio, Biochemistry, Fatty acid, Butyrate and Lactobacillus. The study incorporates disciplines such as Valerate, Carbon dioxide, Propionate and Microbial population biology in addition to Hay.
