About The Book

In this third volume of the successful Book of the Year series, produced by the World Association for Animal Production (WAAP) specialists in animal science inform you about the developments in the past year in livestock systems worldwide. The best authors available are chosen to express their competence and expertise on all the aspects considered relevant in each specific field of animal science.

This volume, like its predecessors, is based on four sections. The first describes livestock industry and relative research developments in the geographical continents. The second includes efforts to describe the development of research in every discipline within the large ambit of animal science. The third section contains interesting articles on "free subjects", of large interest for readers such as "Science and Policy in Risk Assessment of Transgenic Animals", "The impact of nano-scale technologies in animal management", "New developments in amino acid research", etc. The last section presents detailed statistics of high relevance in animal industry. This book is generally recognized as one of the very few practical resources of comprehensive statistical information related to animal industry.

The Book of the Year series is intended for libraries that wish to offer their readers high-quality, updated information. At the same time, this series is an indispensable resource for scientists, policy makers and scientific writers who wish to enhance their proficiency in their field. It provides a very current, complete picture of the animal industry and livestock science worldwide.
