Biology of Growing Animals

This new book series integrates the latest knowledge from the field of the neonatology of production animals into a coherent and detailed overview, and bridg...es the gap between basic and applied sciences. This critical period of development has consequences for productivity, and is quite distinct from that of the adult animal. The series will comprehensively cover areas ranging from the intestine and stomach of growing animals, to their microbial ecology and metabolism, and more.

The authors present their own original, and sometimes controversial, interpretations of the current literature, to form a thought-provoking reference for the reader. Uncharted fields in the existing body of knowledge are also highlighted. This series will be invaluable to academics, veterinarians, clinicians and students with an interest in the early stages of production animal development.
