Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Greenhouse gas, Dairy cattle, Animal science, Agronomy and Rumen. His Greenhouse gas study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Predictive modelling, Livestock, Enteric methane and Methane. His research in Dairy cattle intersects with topics in Animal feed, Dry matter and Concordance correlation coefficient.

His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Urine and Biotechnology. His work on Silage, Manure and Manure management as part of general Agronomy study is frequently connected to Emission intensity, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. In his study, Starch, Propionate, Substrate and Fatty acid is inextricably linked to Digestion, which falls within the broad field of Rumen.

His most cited work include:

  • Special topics--Mitigation of methane and nitrous oxide emissions from animal operations: I. A review of enteric methane mitigation options. (448 citations)
  • Prediction of Methane Production from Dairy and Beef Cattle (293 citations)
  • The effect of protein supplementation on nitrogen utilization in lactating dairy cows fed grass silage diets. (240 citations)

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

Animal science, Agronomy, Rumen, Dairy cattle and Dry matter are his primary areas of study. His Animal science research incorporates elements of Forage, Nutrient and Excretion. The various areas that Ermias Kebreab examines in his Agronomy study include Enteric fermentation and Methane.

His work deals with themes such as Digestion and Methanogenesis, which intersect with Rumen. Ermias Kebreab interconnects Livestock and Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Dairy cattle. His study in the field of Neutral Detergent Fiber also crosses realms of Total mixed ration.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (42.16%)
  • Agronomy (16.97%)
  • Rumen (16.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Animal science (42.16%)
  • Greenhouse gas (14.14%)
  • Dry matter (16.20%)

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

Ermias Kebreab mostly deals with Animal science, Greenhouse gas, Dry matter, Dairy cattle and Rumen. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Organic matter, Forage and Nutrient. His Greenhouse gas research incorporates themes from Life-cycle assessment, Agriculture, Predictive modelling, Livestock and Nitrate.

His studies in Dry matter integrate themes in fields like Ruminant, Feed conversion ratio and Beef cattle. His work carried out in the field of Dairy cattle brings together such families of science as Feces, Enteric methane, Excretion and Latin square. His Rumen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Asparagopsis taxiformis, Methanogenesis and Enteric fermentation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prediction of enteric methane production, yield, and intensity in dairy cattle using an intercontinental database (72 citations)
  • Symposium review: Uncertainties in enteric methane inventories, measurement techniques, and prediction models (41 citations)
  • Social and ecological analysis of commercial integrated crop livestock systems: Current knowledge and remaining uncertainty (40 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Dry matter, Greenhouse gas, Dairy cattle and Manure. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organic matter, Milk protein and Rumen. The concepts of his Dry matter study are interwoven with issues in Feed conversion ratio and Beef cattle.

His research integrates issues of Database, Water use, Agriculture, Toxicology and Predictive modelling in his study of Greenhouse gas. The Dairy cattle study combines topics in areas such as Food science, Enteric methane and Latin square. The study incorporates disciplines such as Life-cycle assessment, Nutrient and Methane in addition to Manure.
