Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology

Andrew Forbes mainly focuses on Animal science, Grazing, Veterinary medicine, Fasciola hepatica and Ultrastructure. His study in Animal science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lungworm and Feces. His Grazing research includes themes of Dry matter, Dairy cattle, Pasture, Herd and Internal parasites.

His studies in Veterinary medicine integrate themes in fields like Ostertagia ostertagi and Liver fluke. Andrew Forbes specializes in Fasciola hepatica, namely Hepatica. His Ultrastructure study combines topics in areas such as Trematoda, Viral tegument, Lesion and In vivo.

His most cited work include:

  • Emergence of fasciolosis in cattle in East Anglia (83 citations)
  • Evaluation of the effects of nematode parasitism on grazing behaviour, herbage intake and growth in young grazing cattle. (65 citations)
  • Fasciola hepatica : tegumental surface alterations following treatment in vivo and in vitro with nitroxynil (Trodax) (55 citations)

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

Andrew Forbes spends much of his time researching Veterinary medicine, Grazing, Animal science, Ostertagia ostertagi and Fasciola hepatica. His Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Helminths, Feces and Pasture. He combines subjects such as Weight gain, Host, Parasitism, Nematode and Anthelmintic with his study of Grazing.

His study in the field of Dairy cattle and Dairy herds also crosses realms of Ice calving and Untreated control. His research integrates issues of Lungworm and Dry matter in his study of Dairy cattle. His Fasciola hepatica research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pathology, In vivo and Liver fluke.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (55.95%)
  • Grazing (41.67%)
  • Animal science (40.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (55.95%)
  • Ostertagia ostertagi (20.24%)
  • Grazing (41.67%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Veterinary medicine, Ostertagia ostertagi, Grazing, Zoology and Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Weight gain and Pasture in addition to Veterinary medicine. The concepts of his Pasture study are interwoven with issues in Stocking and Herd.

His research investigates the connection between Grazing and topics such as Parasite Egg Count that intersect with issues in Parasitism. His study looks at the relationship between Ostertagia and topics such as Negatively associated, which overlap with Animal science. His Breed study in the realm of Animal science interacts with subjects such as Prediction interval.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Modelling the consequences of targeted selective treatment strategies on performance and emergence of anthelmintic resistance amongst grazing calves (18 citations)
  • Ostertagia spp., rumen fluke and liver fluke single- and poly-infections in cattle: An abattoir study of prevalence and production impacts in England and Wales. (18 citations)
  • Targeted anthelmintic treatment of parasitic gastroenteritis in first grazing season dairy calves using daily live weight gain as an indicator. (10 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Pathology

His main research concerns Veterinary medicine, Grazing, Ostertagia ostertagi, Anthelmintic and Pasture. He is interested in Ostertagia, which is a field of Veterinary medicine. Andrew Forbes has researched Ostertagia in several fields, including Analysis of variance, Animal science and Parasitism.

His study on Grazing is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Parasite Egg Count. Andrew Forbes usually deals with Anthelmintic and limits it to topics linked to Weight gain and Ivermectin. His Pasture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stocking and Feces.
