Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Welfare, Animal welfare, Veterinary medicine, Flock and Animal science. His Animal welfare study combines topics in areas such as Marketing, Stocking and Environmental resource management. His Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Hock, Adrenal cortex hormones and Broiler.

His Flock research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Animal-assisted therapy and HUBzero. The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Androstenone and Toxicology. As part of the same scientific family, Frank Tuyttens usually focuses on Quality, concentrating on Public economics and intersecting with Fluctuating asymmetry, Developmental psychology and Methodological quality.

His most cited work include:

  • Do citizens and farmers interpret the concept of farm animal welfare differently (225 citations)
  • The importance of straw for pig and cattle welfare: A review (206 citations)
  • Stocking density effects on broiler welfare: Identifying sensitive ranges for different indicators (118 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Welfare, Animal welfare, Broiler and Veterinary medicine. His Boar taint study, which is part of a larger body of work in Animal science, is frequently linked to Furnished cages and Skatole, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Welfare research includes a combination of various areas of study, such as Agricultural science, Quality, Public economics, Protocol and Animal Welfare.

The various areas that he examines in his Animal welfare study include Animal husbandry, Dairy cattle, Marketing and Feed conversion ratio. In his study, Agricultural economics is strongly linked to Production, which falls under the umbrella field of Broiler. As a part of the same scientific family, Frank Tuyttens mostly works in the field of Veterinary medicine, focusing on Lameness and, on occasion, Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (36.44%)
  • Welfare (27.11%)
  • Animal welfare (21.33%)

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

  • Animal science (36.44%)
  • Broiler (19.56%)
  • Welfare (27.11%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Broiler, Welfare, Flock and Animal welfare. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Androstenone and Electrical engineering. His research in Broiler intersects with topics in Veterinary medicine, Range and Lameness.

His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Blood plasma, Corticosterone and Animal breeding. His Flock research incorporates elements of Animal husbandry, Litter, Toxicology, Pecking order and Hock. His Animal welfare research includes themes of Quality, Dairy cattle, Categorization and Ranking.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Broiler chickens dead on arrival: associated risk factors and welfare indicators (31 citations)
  • Effect of free-range access, shelter type and weather conditions on free-range use and welfare of slow-growing broiler chickens (26 citations)
  • Heat stress in cows at pasture and benefit of shade in a temperate climate region. (21 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Ecology

Frank Tuyttens mainly investigates Animal science, Broiler, Veterinary medicine, Welfare and Animal welfare. Frank Tuyttens interconnects Androstenone and Feces in the investigation of issues within Animal science. His Broiler research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oxidative stress, Blood plasma, Corticosterone and Animal breeding.

His work on Flock as part of general Veterinary medicine study is frequently linked to Physiological Stress Responses and TBARS, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Welfare is intertwined with Risk factor, Animal husbandry, Quality, Public economics and Protocol in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Range, Culling and Affect as well as Animal welfare.
