Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Respiration rate, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Rectal temperature. His Animal science research includes themes of Ergovaline, Hyperthermia, Botany and Festuca arundinacea. His Hyperthermia research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dairy cattle, Follicular phase, Estrous cycle and Luteolysis.

Donald E. Spiers frequently studies issues relating to Thermoregulation and Respiration rate. Donald E. Spiers focuses mostly in the field of Internal medicine, narrowing it down to matters related to Lactation and, in some cases, Ovulation. Donald E. Spiers combines subjects such as Serum prolactin, Biotechnology, Thermal strain, Toxicity and Milk yield with his study of Rectal temperature.

His most cited work include:

  • Effects of controlled heat stress on ovarian function of dairy cattle. 1. Lactating cows. (204 citations)
  • Use of physiological parameters to predict milk yield and feed intake in heat-stressed dairy cows (116 citations)
  • Feeding strategies for managing heat load in feedlot cattle. (109 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Respiration rate, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Thermoregulation. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Endophyte, Fescue toxicosis, Ergovaline, Botany and Hyperthermia. Donald E. Spiers has included themes like Veterinary medicine, SWEAT, Rectal temperature and Beef cattle in his Respiration rate study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Breed, Dairy cattle and Lactation in addition to Endocrinology. His Thermoregulation research integrates issues from Feedlot, Hormone, Surgery and Heat index. His Luteolysis research focuses on Estrous cycle and how it relates to Ovulation and Follicular phase.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (61.19%)
  • Respiration rate (26.87%)
  • Internal medicine (22.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2018)?

  • Animal science (61.19%)
  • Respiration rate (26.87%)
  • Ecology (5.97%)

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

Donald E. Spiers focuses on Animal science, Respiration rate, Ecology, Ergovaline and Fescue toxicosis. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Thermoregulation, Internal medicine, Insulin and Endocrinology. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pregnancy, Lactation and Gestation.

His Respiration rate research incorporates elements of Morning, Late summer, Dry matter and Temperature gradient. His Ergovaline study incorporates themes from Baseline values, Hyperthermia and Core temperature. His research in Fescue toxicosis intersects with topics in Rump, General activity and Diet treatment.

Between 2011 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of a controlled heat stress during late gestation, lactation, and after weaning on thermoregulation, metabolism, and reproduction of primiparous sows. (62 citations)
  • Influence of environmental temperature on the physiological, endocrine, and immune responses in livestock exposed to a provocative immune challenge (45 citations)
  • Relationships between ambient conditions, thermal status, and feed intake of cattle during summer heat stress with access to shade. (17 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Biochemistry

Donald E. Spiers mainly focuses on Animal science, Thermoregulation, Heat index, Crossbreed and Daylight. His Animal science study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hormone, Internal medicine, Insulin, Gestation and Respiration rate. His Thermoregulation study improves the overall literature in Endocrinology.

The various areas that he examines in his Heat index study include Wet-bulb globe temperature and Feedlot.
