Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Agriculture
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare, Animal Welfare, Animal-assisted therapy and Weaned piglets. His Veterinary medicine study incorporates themes from Animal husbandry and Introduced species. His work carried out in the field of Animal welfare brings together such families of science as Natural resource economics, Semantic data model and Aquaculture.

His Animal Welfare research incorporates elements of Econometrics and Farm level. His studies in Econometrics integrate themes in fields like Decision support system and Welfare economics. His research ties Preference and Animal-assisted therapy together.

His most cited work include:

  • Definition of criteria for overall assessment of animal welfare (160 citations)
  • Prevention and treatment of tail biting in weaned piglets (107 citations)
  • Assessing the Importance of Natural Behavior for Animal Welfare (104 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal welfare, Veterinary medicine, Animal Welfare, Animal science and Animal-assisted therapy. His work in Animal welfare tackles topics such as Aquaculture which are related to areas like Natural resource economics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Livestock, Human animal bond, Pet therapy and Biting.

The Animal Welfare study combines topics in areas such as Animal husbandry and Decision support system. His Decision support system research includes elements of Semantic data model, Risk analysis and Econometrics. His research links HUBzero with Animal-assisted therapy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal welfare (24.00%)
  • Veterinary medicine (18.67%)
  • Animal Welfare (16.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Animal welfare (24.00%)
  • Risk analysis (4.00%)
  • Public economics (12.00%)

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

Animal welfare, Risk analysis, Public economics, Welfare state and Fish farming are his primary areas of study. In his papers, Marc B.M. Bracke integrates diverse fields, such as Animal welfare and Trade agreement. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Decision support system and Risk analysis.

The concepts of his Public economics study are interwoven with issues in Space and Control. You can notice a mix of various disciplines of study, such as Rule of thumb, Outcome, Natural resource economics, Warning system and Quality of life, in his Welfare state studies. His Fish farming research includes themes of Development economics and Five freedoms.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A 'meta-analysis' of effects of post-hatch food and water deprivation on development, performance and welfare of chickens. (28 citations)
  • Expert opinion on metal chains and other indestructible objects as proper enrichment for intensively-farmed pigs. (12 citations)
  • Theoretical basis and principles for welfare assessment of farmed fish (7 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Agriculture
  • Ecology

Marc B.M. Bracke focuses on Water environment, Fish farming, Standardization, Public economics and Welfare state.
