Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Ecology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Lactation and Energy source. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Eggshell and Embryo, Embryogenesis. His Eggshell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hatching and Hatchling.

H. van den Brand usually deals with Embryogenesis and limits it to topics linked to Anatomy and Rectal temperature. H. van den Brand combines subjects such as Dairy cattle, NEFA, Insulin and Energy balance with his study of Lactation. His research investigates the connection between Dry matter and topics such as Ecology that intersect with problems in Respiration.

His most cited work include:

  • Effect of eggshell temperature during incubation on embryo development, hatchability, and posthatch development (199 citations)
  • Effects of housing system (outdoor vs cages) and age of laying hens on egg characteristics (135 citations)
  • Dietary Energy Source in Dairy Cows in Early Lactation: Energy Partitioning and Milk Composition (129 citations)

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

H. van den Brand mainly focuses on Animal science, Broiler, Eggshell, Embryo and Hatching. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Animal science, Pregnancy is strongly linked to Endocrinology. His study on Broiler also encompasses disciplines like

  • Nutrient which intersects with area such as Dry matter and Respiration,
  • Slaughter age most often made with reference to Tibia.

In his works, H. van den Brand undertakes multidisciplinary study on Eggshell and Limiting oxygen concentration. In the field of Hatching, his study on Hatchling overlaps with subjects such as Hatchery and Welfare. His work in the fields of Internal medicine, such as Ovulation, Weaning, Insulin and Estrous cycle, overlaps with other areas such as Energy source.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (64.57%)
  • Broiler (33.71%)
  • Eggshell (20.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Broiler (33.71%)
  • Animal science (64.57%)
  • Eggshell (20.00%)

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

His main research concerns Broiler, Animal science, Eggshell, Hatching and Flock. His Broiler research integrates issues from Feed conversion ratio, Tibia and Nutrient. His study looks at the relationship between Animal science and fields such as Rooster, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

H. van den Brand interconnects Compensatory growth, Andrology, Anatomy and Embryo in the investigation of issues within Eggshell. His research on Embryo also deals with topics like

  • Physiology most often made with reference to Endocrinology,
  • Internal medicine which intersects with area such as Parity and Pregnancy. His Hatching research focuses on subjects like Yolk, which are linked to Hatchling.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Relationships between ovulation rate and embryonic and placental characteristics in multiparous sows at 35 days of pregnancy. (23 citations)
  • Effects of breeder age, broiler strain, and eggshell temperature on development and physiological status of embryos and hatchlings (18 citations)
  • Temperature during the last week of incubation. I. Effects on hatching pattern and broiler chicken embryonic organ development (16 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Broiler, Eggshell, Hatching and Anatomy. His study in the field of Blood parameters is also linked to topics like Sodium. His studies deal with areas such as Feed conversion ratio, Antibody and Flock as well as Broiler.

His Anatomy research includes elements of Heart weight, Broiler breeder and Yolk. His Yolk research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hatchling, Stomach, Nutrient and Embryogenesis. His Embryogenesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pregnancy, Parity, Endocrinology and Internal medicine.
