The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.
This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

During the last decade, phytogenic compounds have attracted a lot of attention for their potential role as alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters in animal nutrition. The aim of this work is to review current scientific literature on the use of phytogenics in broiler nutrition. The efficacy of phytogenic applications in broiler nutrition depends on many factors such as composition and feed inclusion level of phytogenic preparations, bird genetics, overall diet composition and overall farm management. It is very difficult to compare different studies using phytogenics since, due to the large variation in composition, the potential biological effects of phytogenic compounds may differ. Nevertheless, a good deal of research data supports a potential role of phytogenics as natural non antibiotic growth promoters in broiler nutrition. However, the mechanisms behind growth promotion are still far from being elucidated, as data on phytogenic effects on nutrient digestibility, gut function and the immune system are still weak. In addition, despite some limited evidence that phytogenic intake could depress pathogen growth in the gut, an understanding of their effects on the complex gut ecosystem is still far from being clear. Whereas there is lack of studies describing the effects of phytogenic dietary intake on carcass meat safety, the beneficial effect of phytogenics on carcass meat quality is very well documented. Finally, in terms of this review, safety issues and further considerations on the efficient applications of phytogenic compounds in broiler nutrition are discussed.
