Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Agriculture

His primary areas of investigation include Nguni cattle, Animal science, Breed, Bonsmara and Biotechnology. He works mostly in the field of Nguni cattle, limiting it down to topics relating to Cattle Diseases and, in certain cases, Anaplasma, Babesiosis and Babesia bovis. His Animal science research focuses on Botany and how it connects with Broiler.

His research in Breed tackles topics such as Globulin which are related to areas like Nutrient, Albumin, Metabolite and Hematology. The Bonsmara study combines topics in areas such as Tenderness, Tick, Pasture and Endocrinology. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Beef cattle and Biotechnology.

His most cited work include:

  • Some biochemical aspects pertaining to beef eating quality and consumer health: A review (230 citations)
  • Meat quality of Nguni, Bonsmara and Aberdeen Angus steers raised on natural pasture in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. (135 citations)
  • Relationship between pre-slaughter stress responsiveness and beef quality in three cattle breeds. (92 citations)

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

Animal science, Breed, Nguni cattle, Biotechnology and Livestock are his primary areas of study. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Feed conversion ratio and Heritability. His work on Bonsmara as part of general Breed research is frequently linked to Genetic diversity, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research investigates the connection between Bonsmara and topics such as Pasture that intersect with problems in Food science. His Nguni cattle research incorporates themes from Animal breeding, Tick and Cattle Diseases. His Livestock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Productivity, Indigenous, Sustainability and Agroforestry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (40.35%)
  • Breed (19.30%)
  • Nguni cattle (17.54%)

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

  • Sustainability (6.43%)
  • Animal science (40.35%)
  • Livestock (11.70%)

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

Kennedy Dzama mostly deals with Sustainability, Animal science, Livestock, Tick and Agriculture. In Sustainability, Kennedy Dzama works on issues like Indigenous, which are connected to Agricultural productivity and Agroforestry. The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Meal and Flock.

His work carried out in the field of Tick brings together such families of science as Breed, Innate immune system and Resistance. His work deals with themes such as Range and Resource, which intersect with Breed. His research in the fields of Rural development overlaps with other disciplines such as Socioeconomics, Political science, Exploit and Focus.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Strategies for Sustainable Use of Indigenous Cattle Genetic Resources in Southern Africa (8 citations)
  • Livelihood, food and nutrition security in Southern Africa : what role do indigenous cattle genetic resources play? (6 citations)
  • Towards a new phenotype for tick resistance in beef and dairy cattle: a review (5 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genetics
  • Agriculture

Kennedy Dzama focuses on Sustainability, Environmental planning, Livelihood, Agriculture and Indigenous. Kennedy Dzama combines subjects such as Breed and Agroforestry with his study of Sustainability. His Environmental planning study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Rural development.

His Livelihood study frequently involves adjacent topics like Climate change. His study in the field of Agricultural productivity is also linked to topics like Population size and Socioeconomics. Kennedy Dzama has researched Indigenous in several fields, including Productivity, Livestock and Food security.
