Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Animal-assisted therapy, Animal welfare, HUBzero and Veterinary medicine. Alistair Lawrence has included themes like Birth weight, Internal medicine and Endocrinology in his Animal science study. His Animal-assisted therapy research includes elements of Breed, Emotionality, Test and Foraging.

His research combines Environmental health and Animal welfare. His HUBzero research focuses on subjects like Developmental psychology, which are linked to Internal validity, Set and WHOLE ANIMAL. His Veterinary medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Public economics and Generalised procrustes analysis.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of behavioral factors involved in the development and continued performance of stereotypic behaviors in pigs. (233 citations)
  • Assessing the 'whole animal': a free choice profiling approach (231 citations)
  • Food restriction as a cause of stereotypic behaviour in tethered gilts (195 citations)

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

Alistair Lawrence mainly focuses on Animal science, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Animal welfare and Animal-assisted therapy. He interconnects Food intake and Straw in the investigation of issues within Animal science. His Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Pregnancy and Gestation.

His research investigates the connection between Animal welfare and topics such as Livestock that intersect with issues in Animal Welfare. The study incorporates disciplines such as Veterinary medicine and HUBzero in addition to Animal-assisted therapy. His work deals with themes such as Dairy cattle and Social stress, which intersect with Veterinary medicine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (39.07%)
  • Internal medicine (16.49%)
  • Endocrinology (16.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Animal welfare (16.85%)
  • Tickling (6.09%)
  • Animal Welfare (15.41%)

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

His main research concerns Animal welfare, Tickling, Animal Welfare, Developmental psychology and Public economics. His research in Animal welfare intersects with topics in Veterinary medicine, Likert scale and Social psychology. His Animal Welfare research includes themes of Livestock, Happiness and Quality of life.

His Developmental psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as HUBzero, Perception, Animal-assisted therapy and Weaning. He has researched General activity in several fields, including Litter and Animal science. His research on Animal science focuses in particular on Dairy calf.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Injurious tail biting in pigs: How can it be controlled in existing systems without tail docking? (89 citations)
  • Why are most EU pigs tail docked? Economic and ethical analysis of four pig housing and management scenarios in the light of EU legislation and animal welfare outcomes. (44 citations)
  • Prenatal stress produces anxiety prone female offspring and impaired maternal behaviour in the domestic pig (30 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology

His primary areas of study are Quality of life, Animal welfare, Animal Welfare, Developmental psychology and Public economics. His work deals with themes such as Animal-assisted therapy and Clinical psychology, Mediation, which intersect with Quality of life. As a member of one scientific family, Alistair Lawrence mostly works in the field of Animal welfare, focusing on Veterinary medicine and, on occasion, Farm level.

The concepts of his Developmental psychology study are interwoven with issues in Litter, Ethogram, General activity and Ontogeny. His Animal husbandry study which covers Social mixing that intersects with Animal science. His research brings together the fields of Gestation and Animal science.
