This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. A flexible, current, and comprehensive look at the biological, industry, and species approaches to Animal Science, complete with worldview information and societal issues. Relevant and timely, Introduction to Animal Science features the most comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the traditional disciplines that are so essential to a solid foundation in Animal Science: nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior. The text's comprehensive, non-traditional approach introduces the discipline as an ever-changing, integral part of every aspect of human existence. Author W. Stephen Damron not only presents thorough coverage of the major species and their respective concerns, he challenges readers to consider the many pressing interests relevant to Animal Science as it influences and is influenced by society today. The Sixth Edition features updated, expanded, and improved coverage including the latest statistical information as appropriate; improvements to the lactation chapter, the animal health chapter, and the animal health sections in each of the species chapters; substantial updates in the biotechnology chapter and the nutrition chapters; enhanced material on food safety; new figures and redesigned and updated graphics throughout; streamlined tables with greater emphasis on example information; and enhanced margin terms and glossary terms to facilitate reading and understanding of the material.

Introduction to Animal Science, is one in a series of Just The Facts (JTF) textbooks created by the National Agricultural Institute for secondary and postsecondary programs in agriculture, food and natural resources (AFNR). This is a bold, new approach to textbooks. The textbook presents the essential knowledge of introductory animal science in outline format. This essential knowledge is supported by a main concept, learning objectives and key terms at the beginning of each section references and a short assessment at the end of each section. Content of the book is further enhanced for student learning by connecting with complementary PowerPoint presentations and websites through QR codes (scanned by smart phones or tablets) or URLs. The textbook is available in print and electronic formats. Based on the feedback from the first edition, our second edition has been revised. Minor errors and broken links were corrected as well as the addition of more illustrations to create a more effective teaching tool.

Es ist nicht immer einfach, einen Neuling in die Grundlagen der pathologischen Histologie einzuführen. Im deutschen Studienplan ist zu diesem Zweck ein eigenes Praktikum vorgesehen, bei dem der Student mit dem Objekt, dem histologi schen Präparat, unmittelbar in Berührung kommt. Leider ist es heute, da Semesterkurse mit 150 bis 200 Hörern an der Tagesordnung sind, nicht mehr möglich, den Studierenden eine eigene Präparatesammlung in die Hand zu geben: Wollte man nämlich jedem Studierenden bloß 150 Präparate mitgeben, so würde das pro Jahr die Herstellung von 2 x 200 X 150, das heißt 60000 Präparaten bedeuten. Dazu fehlt heute Zeit, Geld und vor allem Personal. Außerdem weiß man aus Erfahrung, daß diese Präparate zwar nach der Ablegung des Examens fein säuberlich aufgehoben, aber kaum je mehr angesehen werden - ich selbst schließe mich bei dieser Feststellung nicht aus. Trotzdem wäre es aber gut, wenn jene charakteristischen histologischen Bilder, deren Grundzüge der Studierende im Praktikum kennengelernt hat, auch weiter vor seinem geistigen Auge lebendig blieben und sich evtl. nach den Bedürfnissen des Tages erweiterten und vermehrten. Hier kann nun das vorliegende Werk einspringen, indem es Erinnerungen wachhält und in der einmal erlernten Sprache der pathologischen Histologie neue Bilder beibringt und erläutert. Kein Buch, keine noch so naturgetreue Abbildung wird zwar jemals die Anschauung eines Präparates unter dem Mikroskop ersetzen können, aber unter allen den möglichen Behelfen erscheint der vorliegende Atlas als der beste Ersatz für das Präparat.

Humans have a natural interest in animals; through a long history of domestication, they have become tools, a food source and even friends. Behaviour is a significant indicator of animal health and well-being, and understanding this behaviour is therefore the key to good management. Covering all aspects of animal behaviour and how this relates to welfare for companion animals, farm animals and farmed fish, this book reviews development, socialisation, locomotion, reproduction and more. It takes a comprehensive approach to the subject, including a section of chapters addressing common abnormal behaviours and reviewing some animals, such as rabbits, from both a pet and farm perspective. Now in its fifth edition, Domestic Animal Behaviour and Welfare includes new chapters detailing the welfare of sheep, goats and exotic pets, and welfare in relation to genetic selection and modification. Animal behaviour and welfare sciences are now core topics for agriculture and veterinary students, with courses and research opportunities in this field growing world-wide. Fully updated and with new photographs, this indispensable textbook provides a student-friendly guide to the major themes of animal behaviour and welfare.
