The Encyclopedia of Dairy Sciences is a complete resource for researchers, students and practitioners involved in all aspects of dairy science and related food science and technology areas. Extensively cross-referenced, it covers the core theories, methods, and techniques employed by dairy scientists. It enables readers to access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas, provides a repository of the core information in the area that can be used to refresh the researcher's own memory, and aids teachers in directing students to areas relevant to their course work.
The Encyclopedia contains information that has been distilled, organized and presented as a complete reference tool to the user. This four-volume set includes over 400 articles covering all aspects of dairy science. Included are numerous figures and tables illustrating the text as well as a color plate section in each volume. The inclusion of "Further Reading" lists at the end of each article provide easy access to further information and a guide into the primary literature.

"...forms an excellent resource of value to many different people in many different situations." --MICROBIOLOGY TODAY (August 2003)
"...this Encyclopedia represents a comprehensive composition of the dairy sciences... will be an excellent resource for research and teaching in this field." --Pierpaolo Resmini, DISTAM
"The articles are well written...clear and easy to understand...have been prepared and edited with care. They are concise, but at the same time adequately present sufficient information to cover the subject. ...The Encyclopedia will be an important contribution to the body of knowledge related to dairy and food science. ...The Encyclopedia will be of as much use as a source of readily available general knowledge for persons who are practitioners, tecnicians, and leaders in agricultural pursuits related to dairying." --Earl M. Kesler, Pennsylvania State University
"I would regard this encyclopedia as essential for the libraries of tertiary teaching institutions including food science in their curricula. It should also be available at research institutes and dairy companies." --Peter J. Jooste, Animal Nutrition and Animal Products Institute, South Africa
"...seems destined to become an essential reference source for dairy scientists in research, education and general technical roles." --W.J. Donnelly, Dairy Products Research Centre, Ireland
