Introduction to Animal Science: Global, Biological, Social and Industry Perspectives, 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. Species-focused chapters include the major species (horse, dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goat, poultry, and swine) and the minor species (aquaculture, pets/companion animals, the lamoids, and rabbits).
The study of modern Animal Science also requires a comprehensive, non-traditional approach that effectively introduces the discipline as an ever-changing and integral part of every aspect of human existence. For this reason, author W. Stephen Damron not only presents thorough coverage of the major species and their respective concerns, he challenges students to consider the many pressing interests relevant to Animal Science as it influences and is influenced by society today.
