Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Simon P. Turner mainly focuses on Aggression, Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare, Trait and Welfare. His research in Aggression intersects with topics in Skin lesion, Physiology, Biting and Heritability. His studies deal with areas such as Deep litter and Factorial experiment as well as Skin lesion.

His Veterinary medicine study combines topics in areas such as Sex factors and Social stress. His studies in Animal welfare integrate themes in fields like Livestock farming and Econometrics. His Litter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Birth weight, Animal-assisted therapy and Vitality.

His most cited work include:

  • The accumulation of skin lesions and their use as a predictor of individual aggressiveness in pigs (190 citations)
  • The welfare implications of large litter size in the domestic pig I: biological factors (142 citations)
  • The effect of space allowance on performance, aggression and immune competence of growing pigs housed on straw deep-litter at different group sizes (108 citations)

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

Simon P. Turner focuses on Aggression, Animal welfare, Welfare, Animal science and Developmental psychology. His Aggression research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social group and Skin lesion. His Skin lesion study combines topics in areas such as Veterinary medicine, Lesion, Affect and Physiology.

His research on Animal welfare also deals with topics like

  • Weaning and related Litter,
  • Environmental health which is related to area like Biotechnology. In his research, Dominance hierarchy is intimately related to HUBzero, which falls under the overarching field of Animal science. When carried out as part of a general Developmental psychology research project, his work on Socialization is frequently linked to work in Victory, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aggression (41.32%)
  • Animal welfare (20.66%)
  • Welfare (19.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Aggression (41.32%)
  • Animal welfare (20.66%)
  • Skin lesion (16.53%)

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

His primary areas of study are Aggression, Animal welfare, Skin lesion, Developmental psychology and Physiology. His Aggression research incorporates themes from Biting and Social group. He integrates many fields, such as Animal welfare and Welfare, in his works.

As part of the same scientific family, Simon P. Turner usually focuses on Skin lesion, concentrating on Affect and intersecting with Perception, Clinical psychology and Arousal. His research in the fields of Socialization overlaps with other disciplines such as Domestic pig, Early life and Trait. His studies deal with areas such as Ice calving, Maternal behaviour and Cortisol level as well as Physiology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Transcriptome changes underlie alterations in behavioral traits in different types of chicken. (26 citations)
  • Review: Early life predisposing factors for biting in pigs (14 citations)
  • Socialisation and its effect on play behaviour and aggression in the domestic pig (Sus scrofa). (14 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Simon P. Turner spends much of his time researching Aggression, Early life, Social behaviour, Skin lesion and Developmental psychology. He combines Aggression and Demography in his research. Resolution, Game theory, Microeconomics, Selection and Natural are fields of study that intersect with his Social behaviour study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Clinical psychology, Affect and Animal welfare in addition to Skin lesion. The various areas that Simon P. Turner examines in his Developmental psychology study include Temperament, Big Five personality traits and Heritability. By researching both Trait and Personality, Simon P. Turner produces research that crosses academic boundaries.
