Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Her primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Developmental psychology, Broiler, Fowl and Ecology. Her Animal science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dominance and Human animal bond. Her Developmental psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Focal animal, Animal-assisted therapy and Stimulating environment.

She focuses mostly in the field of Animal-assisted therapy, narrowing it down to matters related to Intervention and, in some cases, Animal welfare. Her research integrates issues of Foraging, Environmental enrichment, Inclusive fitness and Reproductive success in her study of Animal welfare. Her Broiler research includes themes of Veterinary medicine and Body weight, Feed conversion ratio.

Her most cited work include:

  • Environmental enrichment: increasing the biological relevance of captive environments (574 citations)
  • Mammalian Play: Training for the Unexpected (474 citations)
  • Hen welfare in different housing systems (273 citations)

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

Ruth C. Newberry mainly investigates Animal science, Developmental psychology, Broiler, Animal-assisted therapy and Flock. Her Animal science research integrates issues from Ecology and Anatomy. She has included themes like Cognition, Environmental enrichment, Animal welfare and Personality in her Developmental psychology study.

Her Animal welfare research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Captivity, Social psychology and Foraging. Her research investigates the connection between Broiler and topics such as Veterinary medicine that intersect with problems in Crossbreed. As a part of the same scientific family, Ruth C. Newberry mostly works in the field of Animal-assisted therapy, focusing on HUBzero and, on occasion, Anxiety, Repeated measures design, Social play and Clinical psychology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (31.82%)
  • Developmental psychology (22.73%)
  • Broiler (14.55%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Animal science (31.82%)
  • Litter (10.00%)
  • Broiler (14.55%)

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

Her main research concerns Animal science, Litter, Broiler, Personality and Flock. Her Animal science study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Peat. She has researched Broiler in several fields, including Pecking order, Environmental enrichment and Animal welfare.

In the subject of general Animal welfare, her work in Laboratory animal welfare is often linked to Integrated production, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developmental psychology and Predictability. Her Aggression study, which is part of a larger body of work in Developmental psychology, is frequently linked to Local independence, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Positive welfare: What does it add to the debate over pig welfare? (23 citations)
  • Trade-offs between litter size and offspring fitness in domestic pigs subjected to different genetic selection pressures (18 citations)
  • Tickling, a Technique for Inducing Positive Affect When Handling Rats. (12 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Ruth C. Newberry spends much of her time researching Animal science, Animal husbandry, Flock, Peer review and Litter. Her study in Animal science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peat, Time budget and Nest. She incorporates a variety of subjects into her writings, including Animal husbandry, Quality of life, Positive psychology, Animal Welfare, Political science and Straw.

The Flock study combines topics in areas such as Broiler, Environmental enrichment and Lameness. The study incorporates disciplines such as Observational study, Predictability, Personality Assessment Inventory, Ethology and Predictive validity in addition to Peer review. Her Litter study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Offspring and Sibling.
