Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology

Xavier Manteca focuses on Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare, Stunning and Internal medicine. His work deals with themes such as Biochemistry, Rumen, Latin square, Plasma levels and Straw, which intersect with Animal science. His research in Veterinary medicine intersects with topics in Hemoglobin, Pet therapy, HUBzero, Halothane and Intramuscular injection.

The various areas that he examines in his Animal welfare study include Epidemiology, Aggression, CATS and Clinical psychology. Xavier Manteca combines topics linked to Endocrinology with his work on Internal medicine. The Chronic stress, Corticosteroid hormone secretion and Adrenal cortex research Xavier Manteca does as part of his general Endocrinology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Dexamethasone suppression test, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Exploration of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal function as a tool to evaluate animal welfare (451 citations)
  • Ruminal acidosis in feedlot cattle: Interplay between feed ingredients, rumen function and feeding behavior (a review) (114 citations)
  • Assessment of animal welfare through behavioural parameters in Iberian pigs in intensive and extensive conditions (76 citations)

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

Xavier Manteca mainly investigates Animal science, Animal welfare, Veterinary medicine, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Rumen and Straw. His Animal welfare research integrates issues from Livestock and Aggression.

His study explores the link between Aggression and topics such as Physiology that cross with problems in Saliva. In his works, Xavier Manteca conducts interdisciplinary research on Veterinary medicine and Stunning. Many of his studies on Endocrinology apply to Feces as well.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (35.39%)
  • Animal welfare (16.87%)
  • Veterinary medicine (13.58%)

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

  • Animal science (35.39%)
  • Animal welfare (16.87%)
  • Saliva (5.35%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Animal welfare, Saliva, Weaning and Environmental enrichment. In the subject of general Animal science, his work in Breed is often linked to Social behaviour, thereby combining diverse domains of study. As a part of the same scientific family, Xavier Manteca mostly works in the field of Animal welfare, focusing on Aggression and, on occasion, Clinical psychology.

His work deals with themes such as Andrology, Endocrinology, Chronic stress and Physiology, which intersect with Saliva. His Chronic stress research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hydrocortisone and Cortisol level. His Weaning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Litter, Lactation and Skin lesion.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • One Welfare – a platform for improving human and animal welfare (74 citations)
  • Causes, consequences and biomarkers of stress in swine: an update (72 citations)
  • Stress in owned cats: behavioural changes and welfare implications (39 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology

Saliva, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Animal science and Environmental enrichment are his primary areas of study. His Saliva study incorporates themes from Oxidative stress, Reactive oxygen species, Physiology and Antioxidant. His Animal science study focuses on Weaning in particular.

As a member of one scientific family, Xavier Manteca mostly works in the field of Weaning, focusing on Aggression and, on occasion, Animal welfare, Clinical psychology, Stressor and Anorexia. His research investigates the connection between Environmental enrichment and topics such as Redirected behaviour that intersect with issues in Body weight, Productivity, Stimulation and Straw. The Veterinary medicine study combines topics in areas such as Early detection and Environmental health.
