Farm Animal Metabolism and Nutrition PDF. There is, once more, a need for an advanced textbook in animal biochemistry and nutrition that covers the specialist requirements of ﬁnal year undergraduates and new postgraduate students.
Farm Animal Metabolism and Nutrition PDF
The existing books have long become out of date, and currently my students are directed to reviews published within the proceedings of various symposia and workshops. However, this approach is less than satisfactory as the reviews are distributed in diverse books and journals that are both physically and ﬁnancially out of reach of these students.
Increasingly these days, libraries resort to restricted lending of journals containing up-to-date reviews and, furthermore, the common practice of holding single copies of conference proceedings is of limited value to the large groups of students we have to teach. Moreover, students still have the problem of consulting different issues of journals and conference proceedings to acquire a comprehensive picture.
In Farm Animal Metabolism and Nutrition, I have attempted to overcome most if not all of these limitations by providing a graduated and structured series of critical reviews by international experts, at an affordable price. Current programmes for ﬁnal year undergraduate and MSc courses at Edinburgh form the basis of the topics selected for this book. In addition, my choice of subjects has been based on experience in teaching ﬁnal year students at Edinburgh who have at times expressed difﬁculty with or particular interest in specialist topics.
The needs of our commercial clients have not been ignored either, as will be seen from my choice of authors and review topics. In the rapidly changing and expansive ﬁelds of farm animal metabolism and nutrition, the limitations of existing general texts are all too evident.
No single author can be expected to keep abreast of innovation in all aspects of these ﬁelds. I have attempted to overcome these problems by selecting authors who are actively publishing refereed papers and who have an enviable track record in their respective specialisms. Furthermore, my collaborating authors have been selected from major teaching and research establishments around the world.
