Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Biochemistry
  • Metabolism
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Respiration, Food science, Energy balance and Lactation. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Eggshell, Yolk, Straw and Embryo. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Incubation and Metabolism.

His study looks at the relationship between Respiration and fields such as Ecology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His study explores the link between Food science and topics such as Carbohydrate that cross with problems in Polysaccharide, Sugar beet, Weight gain, Starch and Silage. His work investigates the relationship between Energy balance and topics such as Digestion that intersect with problems in Nutrient.

His most cited work include:

  • An exploration on greenhouse gas and ammonia production by insect species suitable for animal or human consumption. (327 citations)
  • Effects of increasing temperatures on physiological changes in pigs at different relative humidities. (157 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?

M.J.W. Heetkamp mostly deals with Animal science, Nutrient, Energy metabolism, Respiration and Food science. His research integrates issues of Eggshell, Ecology and Embryo in his study of Animal science. His Embryo research incorporates elements of Andrology and Carbon dioxide.

His work carried out in the field of Nutrient brings together such families of science as Digestion, Dry matter, Broiler and Respiratory quotient. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ventilation, Feed conversion ratio, Manure and Humidity. His work deals with themes such as Biochemistry, Carbohydrate and Energy balance, which intersect with Food science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (55.70%)
  • Nutrient (18.99%)
  • Energy metabolism (17.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Animal science (55.70%)
  • Broiler (15.19%)
  • Nutrient (18.99%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Broiler, Nutrient, Incubation and Eggshell. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecology, Manure and Embryo. His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Calorimetry, which are linked to Carbon dioxide.

The various areas that he examines in his Nutrient study include Biomass, Biofuel, Agronomy and Respiration. His Respiration research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Food science, Energy balance and Energy metabolism. The Incubation study combines topics in areas such as Hatching and Yolk.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Design of climate respiration chambers, adjustable to the metabolic mass of subjects (28 citations)
  • Effects of breeder age, broiler strain, and eggshell temperature on development and physiological status of embryos and hatchlings (18 citations)
  • Differences in egg nutrient availability, development, and nutrient metabolism of broiler and layer embryos (13 citations)

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

  • Biochemistry
  • Metabolism
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Nutrient, Eggshell, Broiler, Incubation and Animal science. His Nutrient research incorporates themes from Biomass, Greenhouse gas, Ammonia and Bioconversion. He has included themes like Hatching, Yolk and Embryogenesis in his Eggshell study.
