Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Biochemistry

Richard J. Dewhurst mainly focuses on Rumen, Dairy cattle, Food science, Animal science and Silage. His Rumen research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sire, Metabolism and Metagenomics. His Dairy cattle research incorporates themes from Environmental health, Mastitis, Disease, Risk of infection and Confounding.

His Food science study also includes fields such as

  • Polyunsaturated fatty acid which intersects with area such as Conjugated linoleic acid,
  • Fatty acid, which have a strong connection to Forage. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Udder and Digestion. His Silage research includes themes of Dry matter and Red Clover.

His most cited work include:

  • Increasing the concentrations of beneficial polyunsaturated fatty acids in milk produced by dairy cows in high-forage systems (396 citations)
  • On the relationship between lactational performance and health: is it yield or metabolic imbalance that cause production diseases in dairy cattle? A position paper (356 citations)
  • Comparison of grass and legume silages for milk production. 1. Production responses with different levels of concentrate (256 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Rumen, Animal science, Silage, Food science and Dry matter. His Rumen study combines topics in areas such as Beef cattle and Metagenomics. He has researched Animal science in several fields, including Forage, Botany, Nitrogen, Fractionation and Excretion.

His Silage research incorporates elements of Dairy cattle, Red Clover and Straw. His studies examine the connections between Food science and genetics, as well as such issues in Fatty acid, with regards to Propionate. His research integrates issues of Organic matter and Nitrogen balance in his study of Dry matter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Rumen (48.30%)
  • Animal science (42.05%)
  • Silage (33.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Rumen (48.30%)
  • Metagenomics (10.23%)
  • Animal science (42.05%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Rumen, Metagenomics, Animal science, Food science and Microbiome. His studies in Rumen integrate themes in fields like Ruminant, Gene, Propionate and Beef cattle. His work on Dry matter as part of general Animal science study is frequently connected to Milk yield, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Dry matter research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Crop, Sowing, Silage, Brassica and Yield. The concepts of his Food science study are interwoven with issues in Methane production and Fatty acid. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Compositional data, Biotechnology and Computational biology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Assembly of 913 microbial genomes from metagenomic sequencing of the cow rumen. (206 citations)
  • Addressing global ruminant agricultural challenges through understanding the rumen microbiome: past, present and future (91 citations)
  • Identification, Comparison, and Validation of Robust Rumen Microbial Biomarkers for Methane Emissions Using Diverse Bos Taurus Breeds and Basal Diets (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Biochemistry

Richard J. Dewhurst focuses on Rumen, Metagenomics, Beef cattle, Animal science and Microbiome. Rumen and Residual feed intake are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary research. His studies deal with areas such as Biotechnology, Food science, Methanogenesis and Anaerobic bacteria as well as Metagenomics.

His research investigates the connection with Food science and areas like Methane which intersect with concerns in Gene and Breed. His Animal science research includes elements of Perennial plant, Relative species abundance and Forage. He combines subjects such as Genome, Computational biology and Microbial ecology with his study of Microbiome.
