Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Agriculture

Her primary areas of study are Animal science, Aggression, Botany, Biotechnology and Internal medicine. Her Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Veterinary medicine and Coefficient of variation. Kym L. Butler has included themes like Weight gain and Pasture in her Botany study.

In the field of Biotechnology, her study on Animal feed overlaps with subjects such as Docosahexaenoic acid, Eicosapentaenoic acid, Value and Animal fiber. Her Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Boar taint and Endocrinology. Her work on Hydrocortisone is typically connected to Surgical castration, Active time and Sampling as part of general Endocrinology study, connecting several disciplines of science.

Her most cited work include:

  • The effects of immuno- and surgical-castration on the behaviour and consequently growth of group-housed, male finisher pigs (167 citations)
  • Sources of sampling variation in saliva cortisol in dogs. (100 citations)
  • Accuracy of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), weight and P2 back fat to predict whole body and carcass composition in pigs within and across experiments (75 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Agronomy, Animal welfare, Mohair and Veterinary medicine. Her research in Animal science intersects with topics in Environmental management system and Flock. Her work on Soil indicators as part of general Environmental management system study is frequently linked to Genotype, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

She studied Agronomy and Botany that intersect with Aquatic plant. Her work on HUBzero as part of general Animal welfare research is frequently linked to Demography, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Breed research includes themes of Incidence and Allometry.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (48.78%)
  • Agronomy (21.95%)
  • Animal welfare (11.59%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Animal science (48.78%)
  • Agronomy (21.95%)
  • Visitor pattern (10.37%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Agronomy, Visitor pattern, Aggression and Eudyptula minor. Kym L. Butler mostly deals with Feedlot in her studies of Animal science. The various areas that Kym L. Butler examines in her Agronomy study include Aquatic weeds and Cane.

Endocrinology is closely connected to Reproduction in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Aggression. While the research belongs to areas of Eudyptula minor, she spends her time largely on the problem of Zoology, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Continuous sampling. Her Veterinary medicine research integrates issues from Maximum likelihood and Combinatorics.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Effects of visual contact with zoo visitors on black-capped capuchin welfare (29 citations)
  • Effects of visual contact with zoo visitors on black-capped capuchin welfare (29 citations)
  • Little penguins, Eudyptula minor, show increased avoidance, aggression and vigilance in response to zoo visitors (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Agriculture

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Visitor pattern, Aggression, Animal science, Vigilance and Eudyptula minor. Her Visitor pattern research spans across into subjects like Ecology, Stress physiology, Physiological stress, Preference test and Window. Her work on Foraging as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Avoidance behaviour and Macropodidae, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Her work investigates the relationship between Aggression and topics such as Reproduction that intersect with problems in Internal medicine. As a member of one scientific family, Kym L. Butler mostly works in the field of Animal science, focusing on Plasma cortisol and, on occasion, Feedlot. Her Eudyptula minor research incorporates themes from Zoology and Continuous sampling.
