Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Animal science

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Welfare, Tail-biting and Animal welfare. Her Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Feed conversion ratio, Environmental enrichment, Straw and Ileum. Her Feed conversion ratio research integrates issues from Abundance, Relative species abundance and Feces, Ruminococcus.

Her research integrates issues of Ecology, Dominance, Animal Welfare and Exploratory behaviour in her study of Environmental enrichment. The various areas that Niamh O'Connell examines in her Veterinary medicine study include Breed, Purebred and Selective breeding. Her Animal welfare study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Social status, Pasture, Demographic economics and Agricultural science.

Her most cited work include:

  • Influence of environmental enrichment on the behaviour, performance and meat quality of domestic pigs (211 citations)
  • Responses of calves to acute stress: individual consistency and relations between behavioral and physiological measures. (129 citations)
  • Influence of environmental enrichment on welfare-related behavioural and physiological parameters in growing pigs (85 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Welfare, Broiler, Veterinary medicine and Animal welfare. Her work on Weaning is typically connected to Ice calving as part of general Animal science study, connecting several disciplines of science. Her Broiler study combines topics in areas such as Gait, Litter and Flock.

Her work deals with themes such as Lesion and Lameness, which intersect with Veterinary medicine. Her work in Animal welfare covers topics such as Social status which are related to areas like Food competition and Plasma cortisol. Her study in Straw is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Factorial experiment and Exploratory behaviour.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (63.16%)
  • Welfare (21.93%)
  • Broiler (16.67%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Animal science (63.16%)
  • Broiler (16.67%)
  • Welfare (21.93%)

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

Niamh O'Connell mainly focuses on Animal science, Broiler, Welfare, Residual feed intake and Psychology. The concepts of her Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Grazing and Straw. She combines subjects such as Litter, Foraging and Flock with her study of Broiler.

Niamh O'Connell has included themes like Weight gain, Intestinal mucosa and Intestinal permeability in her Residual feed intake study. Her studies in Feed conversion ratio integrate themes in fields like Abundance, Relative species abundance, Feces and Nutrient. The Animal welfare study combines topics in areas such as Stakeholder engagement and Marketing, SWOT analysis.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Review: welfare of dairy cows in continuously housed and pasture-based production systems (48 citations)
  • Intestinal microbiota profiles associated with low and high residual feed intake in chickens across two geographical locations (42 citations)
  • Study on the Association between Tail Lesion Score, Cold Carcass Weight, and Viscera Condemnations in Slaughter Pigs (28 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Animal science

Her primary scientific interests are in Animal science, Feces, Broiler, Feed conversion ratio and Residual feed intake. Animal science is closely attributed to Animal welfare in her research. Her work carried out in the field of Feces brings together such families of science as Nutrient and Manure.

Her research in Broiler focuses on subjects like Litter, which are connected to Scan sampling, Straw, Oat hulls and Substrate. Her Feed conversion ratio research incorporates elements of Fecal microbiota, Gut flora, Ruminococcus and Ileum. Her Residual feed intake study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Abundance, Relative species abundance, Weight gain, Intestinal permeability and Digestion.
