Principles of Poultry Science

Principles of Poultry Science Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Farmed poultry is an important source of protein throughout the world, and all students of agriculture are likely to be required to study poultry science to at least an introductory level. However, hitherto, there has been no suitable textbook serving the needs of students taking a general introductory course in poultry science.

This book aims to fill this gap, explaining the science underlying the productive processes of growth, reproduction, and incubation. The applications of nutrition and breeding techniques are described. The overall purpose is to provide the student with an understanding of the characteristics and physiological responses of domesticated poultry, emphasizing modelling responses rather than biochemical and hormonal processes. Basic concepts and models are stressed rather than practical production systems, so that the book has worldwide applicability. The book represents a key text for degree and advance diploma courses in agriculture.

Synopsis:

This book explains the science underlying the productive processes of growth, reproduction and incubation. The applications of nutrition and breeding techniques are described. The book covers all the commercially important poultry species, including turkeys, quail, guinea fowls, ducks and geese, but the main emphasis is on the domestic fowl. The overall purpose is to provide the student with an understanding of the characteristics and physiological responses of domesticated poultry, with particular reference to production. The emphasis is on modelling responses rather than on biochemical and hormonal processes. The author stresses basic concepts and models, rather than practical production systems, so that the book should have worldwide applicability. The book represents a key text for degree and advanced diploma courses in agriculture.
