Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Agriculture

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Birth weight, Breed, Scottish Blackface and Litter. Her Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Internal medicine, Maternal behaviour, Endocrinology and Animal-assisted therapy. Domestication is closely connected to HUBzero in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Animal-assisted therapy.

Her Birth weight research covers fields of interest such as Udder and Weaning. Her study focuses on the intersection of Scottish Blackface and fields such as Domestic sheep reproduction with connections in the field of Intensive care medicine and Distress. Cathy M. Dwyer combines Litter and Low birth weight in her studies.

Her most cited work include:

  • The influence of maternal nutrition on muscle fiber number development in the porcine fetus and on subsequent postnatal growth (216 citations)
  • Muscle Cellularity and Postnatal Growth in the Pig (160 citations)
  • Behavioural development in the neonatal lamb: effect of maternal and birth-related factors (132 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Animal science, Scottish Blackface, Endocrinology, Internal medicine and Breed. Her work on Weaning, Litter and Domestic sheep reproduction as part of general Animal science research is frequently linked to Birth weight, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. As a part of the same scientific family, Cathy M. Dwyer mostly works in the field of Weaning, focusing on Animal husbandry and, on occasion, Animal welfare.

Her Scottish Blackface study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Maternal behaviour. Her work on Oxytocin and Hormone as part of general Endocrinology research is frequently linked to Gestation, Fetus and Placenta, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her research investigates the link between Veterinary medicine and topics such as Animal-assisted therapy that cross with problems in Control period.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (34.92%)
  • Scottish Blackface (20.63%)
  • Endocrinology (17.46%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Public economics (7.94%)
  • Duration (6.35%)
  • Animal Welfare (6.35%)

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

Cathy M. Dwyer mainly investigates Public economics, Duration, Animal Welfare, Likert scale and Family medicine. Her Animal Welfare study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Reliability and Risk analysis. As a member of one scientific family, Cathy M. Dwyer mostly works in the field of Likert scale, focusing on Animal welfare and, on occasion, Livestock, Social psychology, Dust bathing and Pecking order.

Internal medicine and Endocrinology are fields of study that intersect with her Maternal stress research. Her Prebiotic research extends to the thematically linked field of Internal medicine. Her work in the fields of Licking overlaps with other areas such as Gestation period.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Invited review: Improving neonatal survival in small ruminants: science into practice (72 citations)
  • Epigenetics and developmental programming of welfare and production traits in farm animals (46 citations)
  • AWIN Welfare assessment protocol for sheep (22 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Agriculture

Her main research concerns Animal Welfare, Lying, Classical conditioning, Anticipation and Livestock. Her Animal Welfare research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reliability and Risk analysis. Her work carried out in the field of Anticipation brings together such families of science as Pecking order, Foraging and Dust bathing.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Farm income, Survival analysis, Biotechnology and Epidemiology. Her Knowledge transfer study spans across into areas like Environmental health and Animal welfare. Her Stressor research overlaps with other disciplines such as Internal medicine, Animal husbandry, Endocrinology, Weaning and Demography.
