Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria
  • Ecology

Karen A. Beauchemin mainly focuses on Rumen, Animal science, Dairy cattle, Silage and Food science. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Feed conversion ratio, Biotechnology and Bacteria. Beef cattle is the focus of her Animal science research.

Her Dairy cattle research includes elements of Barn, Saliva secretion, Dry matter and Lactation. Silage is a subfield of Agronomy that Karen A. Beauchemin tackles. In general Food science study, her work on Latin square, Digestion and Fibrolytic bacterium often relates to the realm of Mastication, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Her most cited work include:

  • Nutritional management for enteric methane abatement: A review (718 citations)
  • Methane emissions from beef cattle: Effects of monensin, sunflower oil, enzymes, yeast, and fumaric acid. (364 citations)
  • A review of plant-derived essential oils in ruminant nutrition and production (310 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Dry matter, Rumen, Silage and Food science. Her Animal science research incorporates themes from Forage, Agronomy and Acidosis. Her studies in Dry matter integrate themes in fields like Total mixed ration, Feed conversion ratio, Lactation and Starch.

Her work deals with themes such as Digestion, Propionate and Animal feed, which intersect with Rumen. Her Silage research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meal, Distillers grains, Monensin, Latin square and Hay. Her Food science study incorporates themes from Ruminant, Dairy cattle and Xylanase, Enzyme.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (52.54%)
  • Dry matter (37.75%)
  • Rumen (37.31%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Animal science (52.54%)
  • Dry matter (37.75%)
  • Beef cattle (25.39%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Animal science, Dry matter, Beef cattle, Rumen and Silage. The Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Feces, Forage, Straw and Latin square. The various areas that Karen A. Beauchemin examines in her Dry matter study include Feed conversion ratio, Valerate, Starch and Fatty acid.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Total mixed ration and Acidosis in addition to Fatty acid. The concepts of her Beef cattle study are interwoven with issues in Canola, Urea, Greenhouse gas, Manure and Grazing. Her Rumen research integrates issues from Isovalerate, Propionate and Microbial population biology.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Review: Fifty years of research on rumen methanogenesis: lessons learned and future challenges for mitigation (37 citations)
  • Effect of tannin-containing hays on enteric methane emissions and nitrogen partitioning in beef cattle1. (21 citations)
  • Use of gallic acid and hydrolyzable tannins to reduce methane emission and nitrogen excretion in beef cattle fed a diet containing alfalfa silage1,2. (19 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria
  • Ecology

Her main research concerns Animal science, Dry matter, Beef cattle, Rumen and Latin square. Her Animal science research focuses on Silage in particular. Her Dry matter research includes themes of Organic matter, Fermentation, Valerate and Starch.

Her studies deal with areas such as Poaceae, Sunflower oil and Manure as well as Beef cattle. Her Rumen study is concerned with Food science in general. In Latin square, Karen A. Beauchemin works on issues like Neutral Detergent Fiber, which are connected to Nitrate.
