Encyclopedia of Animal Science

Featuring entries written by some 300 international academics and researchers--and reviewed by a 15-member editorial advisory board with members from all continents--this two-volume reference set provides up-to-date information on a broad range of topics related to the biology, production, and uses of animals and their products in today's complex, diverse, and rapidly changing world. Designed for policy makers, governmental bodies, private and public research professionals, agricultural producers, students, and the public, the 300-plus entries, each roughly 2000 words in length and augmented with selected literature citations, will help readers acquire basic familiarity with the key terms and current knowledge of the subject. In addition to a complete subject index, each volume contains an alphabetical list of entries and a topical table of contents for both volumes. The second edition covers new developments in genomics, transgenesis, cloning, and mathematical model constructions. Illustrated with b&w photographs, tables, charts, and diagrams.
