Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Within the past two decades, new methods created by molecular genetics and cytogenetics as well as quantitative genetics have greatly enlarged the amount and quality of genetic information available in domestic mammals. Cattle have been significantly involved in this process, particularly due to the large impact of new knowledge and methods on the economy and culture of numerous countries for both meat and milk production. As demands for these goods increase, modern genetic technologies in immunogenetics, cytogenetics, biochemical and molecular genetics create optimistic expectations for the future. A comprehensive reference to work on genetics and selection of cattle Written by internationally recognized experts All relevant topics, from phylogeny, morphological traits, diseases and behavior to transgenics, performance traits and genome mapping included Invaluable to advanced students and researchers, as well as livestock producers and veterinarians.

Book News Annotation:

Collects essential data concerning cattle genetics and brings together previously disparate areas of research. Early chapters cover the systematics and phylogeny of cattle, domestication, and factorial genetics, followed by chapters on biochemical polymorphism, immunogenetics and disease resistance, genome structure, and gene mapping. Later chapters are devoted to genetics applied to cattle improvement. Standard genetic nomenclature for cattle and cattle breeds is presented. The editors are affiliated with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and the University of New England, Australia. Distributed by Oxford University Press.

Synopsis:

Breakthroughs in understanding the genetics of animals are making headlines worldwide. However, many issues remain unresolved, despite the remarkable progress. This volume collects up-to-date research on the genetics of cattle, a field of immense economic and political importance, particularly with the discovery of "Mad Cow" disease. Topics covered include domestication, common breeds and their origin; morphological traits and inherited disorders; immune response and disease resistance, including bovine spongiform encephalopathy; development and reproductive technologies and transgenics; and genetic resources, conservation and improvement. It will be an invaluable resource for anyone studying genetics and contemporary methods in animal breeding.

Synopsis:

The negotiations for economic and monetary union in the European Union represented a massive change for Europe and for the world. This book identifies why the historical agreement at Maastricht in December 1991 was possible and how the agreement was made. It examines the motives that inspired

EC political leaders, the strategies that they pursued, and the institutions of the EC which were used to achieve monetary union.
