Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Biochemistry
  • Metabolism
  • Amino acid

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Rumen, Endocrinology, Biochemistry and Monensin. Many of his research projects under Animal science are closely connected to Adaptation with Adaptation, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Rumen research includes themes of Chromatography and Digestion.

The Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Liver mass and Blood flow. His studies in Monensin integrate themes in fields like Silage, Feedlot and Propionate. The study incorporates disciplines such as Osmole, Digestion, Tallow and Agronomy in addition to Starch.

His most cited work include:

  • Level of nutrition and visceral organ size and metabolic activity in sheep. (185 citations)
  • Adaptation to High Concentrate Diets by Beef Cattle. I. Adaptation to Corn and Wheat Diets (134 citations)
  • Effect of level of nutrition on splanchnic blood flow and oxygen consumption in sheep. (123 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Food science, Rumen, Agronomy and Biochemistry. He has included themes like Digestion, Forage and Latin square in his Animal science study. In general Food science study, his work on Browning and Blood meal often relates to the realm of Corn gluten meal and Ruminant, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His Rumen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chromatography and Acid–base homeostasis. R. A. Britton combines subjects such as Alfalfa hay, Starch digestion, Starch and Ammonia with his study of Agronomy. His work on Metabolism, Butyrate and Fatty acid as part of general Biochemistry research is frequently linked to Materials science, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (44.83%)
  • Food science (32.18%)
  • Rumen (29.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1992-2003)?

  • Rumen (29.89%)
  • Animal science (44.83%)
  • Inert (8.05%)

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

R. A. Britton spends much of his time researching Rumen, Animal science, Inert, Food science and Agronomy. The concepts of his Rumen study are interwoven with issues in Propionate and Metabolism. His Animal science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Digestion, Tallow, Acidosis and Latin square.

R. A. Britton focuses mostly in the field of Digestion, narrowing it down to topics relating to Small intestine and, in certain cases, Blood flow and Deoxyglucose. His Latin square research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Urea, Endocrinology and Duodenum. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Agronomy, Sorghum and Fermentation is strongly linked to Starch.

Between 1992 and 2003, his most popular works were:

  • Influence of ruminal protozoa on site and extent of starch digestion and ruminal fermentation. (107 citations)
  • Effect of monensin and monensin and tylosin combination on feed intake variation of feedlot steers. (93 citations)
  • Differential effects of plane of protein or energy nutrition on visceral organs and hormones in lambs (78 citations)

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

  • Biochemistry
  • Metabolism
  • Amino acid

R. A. Britton focuses on Animal science, Metabolism, Rumen, Propionate and Monensin. R. A. Britton studies Feedlot, a branch of Animal science. His Metabolism research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Whole liver, Hormone, Insulin, Liver tissue and Differential effects.

His Rumen research includes elements of Digestion, Agronomy and Starch. His Propionate research incorporates elements of Small intestine, Carbohydrate metabolism, Tallow, Butyrate and Glutamine. His Monensin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Silage, Dry matter and Crossbreed.
