Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This resource for animal scientists, veterinarians and biomedical researchers reflects the fact that since the 1980s the knowledge base about the physiology and biology of the pig has grown phenomenally. The book offers an integrated description of the full scope of current knowledge. The editors have included chapters on the expandin fields of immunology, endocrinology and genetics. Growth, digestion, nutrition, respiration, excretion and reproduction are extensively treated. The final chapter covers the emerging applications of transgenics, metabolite replacement therapy and xenotranslantation (the use of animal tissues in humans).

Book News Annotation:

Presents an integrated description of the current knowledge of the biology of the normal pig. Topics of infectious diseases and pathology are avoided. Emphasis is on normal structure and function, as well as specific applications of the pig in medicine and agriculture, and prospects for use of the pig in new areas such as xenotransplantation. Contains chapters on anesthesia and surgery, genetics, reproductive physiology, and nutrient requirements, in addition to various body systems of the pig. For animal scientists, veterinarians, biomedical scientists, and students. Pond is affiliated with Cornell University's Department of Animal Science. Mersmann is affiliated with Baylor College of Medicine.

This is because of the animal's rapid rise in popularity as a model subject in biomedical research and the ongoing research concerning its use worldwide as a food source.
