Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Surgery

Christine J Nicol focuses on Animal science, Flock, Veterinary medicine, Feather and Feather pecking. Her studies in Animal science integrate themes in fields like Pecking order, Animal-assisted therapy, Pet therapy and Nest. Her Flock research integrates issues from Animal husbandry, Litter, Stocking, Welfare and Plumage.

In her research, Hay, Postal survey, Redirected behaviour and Forage is intimately related to Logistic regression, which falls under the overarching field of Veterinary medicine. Her Feather research incorporates elements of Anatomy and Beak. Her Feather pecking study deals with Foraging intersecting with Social status, Operant conditioning chamber, Operations management and Public economics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Hen welfare in different housing systems (273 citations)
  • Management factors associated with stereotypic and redirected behaviour in the thoroughbred horse (254 citations)
  • Leg disorders in broiler chickens: Prevalence, risk factors and prevention (210 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Welfare, Flock and Animal welfare. Her work in Animal science covers topics such as Pecking order which are related to areas like Developmental psychology. Her Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Animal husbandry, Feather and Broiler.

Much of her study explores Welfare relationship to Public economics. Her Flock study incorporates themes from Litter and Stocking. Her Animal-assisted therapy study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Pet therapy.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (28.07%)
  • Veterinary medicine (17.54%)
  • Welfare (14.33%)

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

  • Animal science (28.07%)
  • Welfare (14.33%)
  • Animal Welfare (6.43%)

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

Christine J Nicol mainly investigates Animal science, Welfare, Animal Welfare, Pecking order and Veterinary medicine. The concepts of her Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Range, Keel and Flock. Her study in Flock is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bone damage, Feather pecking, Litter, Toxicology and Agricultural science.

Her study in Welfare is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biodiversity, Public economics, Perception, Animal welfare and Environmental planning. Her research integrates issues of Developmental psychology, Arousal, Air puff and Contingent valuation in her study of Pecking order. Christine J Nicol has included themes like Demography, Home cage and Obesity in her Veterinary medicine study.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Behavioural Biology of Chickens (42 citations)
  • Consumer perceptions of free range laying hen welfare (39 citations)
  • Invited review: Environmental enrichment of dairy cows and calves in indoor housing. (33 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Pathology

Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare, Welfare and Pecking order are her primary areas of study. Her work focuses on many connections between Animal science and other disciplines, such as Range, that overlap with her field of interest in Vent pecking and Cannibalism. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cognitive development, Domestication, Demography and Obesity.

Her research in Animal welfare intersects with topics in Psychological intervention, Clinical significance and Contingent valuation. Her Welfare research incorporates elements of Marketing, Purchasing, Perception and Agricultural science. Christine J Nicol has researched Flock in several fields, including Feather pecking and Toxicology.
