MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain
by George Paxinos, Charles Watson, Evan Calabrese, Alexandra Badea, and G Allan Johnson
MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain offers two major enhancements when compared with earlier attempts to make MRI/DTI rat brain atlases. First, the spatial resolution at 25m is considerably higher than previous data published. Secondly, the comprehensive set of MRI/DTI contrasts provided has enabled the authors to identify more than 80% of structures identified in The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates.
Progress in Dairy Science

The subject matter is divided into five sections, covering: nutrition and physiology; breeding and reproduction; health maintenance and control; milking and milk technology; and the environment and ethics. All chapters have been specially commissioned for this volume from international authorities from Europe, North America and Africa. The book represents an important up...
Animal Keeper Log (Log Book, Journal - 125 pgs, 8.5 X 11 inches) (Centurion Logbooks/Record Books)
by Centurion Logbooks
Penguin Biology is the first broad-based collection of biological and ecological studies of these unique birds to be published since 1975. Topics have since become broad ecological hypotheses, not species-specific descriptions, and new technology has taken observations into the oceanic depths. Penguin Biology shows new techniques and the applications mad of them in contemporary biological and evolutionary theory. Penguin Biology is an invaluable reference for ornithologists, animal behavioris...

It identifies the main global flows - trade, capital, aid, migration and policy - and examines how each can contribute to undermine economic development. By considering what helps and what does not, the book presents policy recommendations to make globalization more effecti...

An Introduction to Plant Breeding
by Jack Brown and Peter Caligari
Plants have been successfully selectively bred for thousands of years, culminating in incredible yields, quality, resistance and so on that we see in our modern day crops and ornamental plants. In recent years the techniques used have been rapidly advanced and refined to include molecular, cell and genetic techniques. An Introduction to Plant Breeding provides comprehensive coverage of the whole area of plant breeding. Covering modes of reproduction in plants, breeding objectives and schemes, g...
Poultry Diseases Influenced by Gastrointestinal Health
In this book poultry diseases that are directly related to the gastrointestinal tract, as well as diseases that are not directly, but that could be influenced by, the intestinal health are covered. In addition, the impact of human pathogens harboured by poultry is also discussed. As a background to understanding the covered topics, basic insights in poultry anatomy, physiology and immunology are given. The book also contains pictures that aid in the description of poultry anatomy, digestive p...
In Vitro Digestion for Pigs and Poultry
There is now widespread interest in the development of in vitro methods for assessing the digestibility of feedstuffs for monogastric farm animals, i.e. pigs and poultry. In vivo methods require the use of surgically modified animals, which is becoming less favoured due to increased awareness of animal welfare, and are expensive and slow. A number of research groups around the world are now developing in vitro methods, and this book, based on a workshop held at the Rowett Research Institute in O...
