There have been substantial developments in the methodologies available for the non-destructive and non-invasive measurement of body composition in animals.
By bringing together in a single volume a mix of traditional and well-established analytical methods with more modern techniques, Body Composition Analysis: A Handbook of Non-destructive Methods provides a theoretical overview of different methodologies combined with practical advice on the use of these techniques. Methods covered include the use of destructive methods of analysis, body condition indices, isotope and gas dilution methods, total body electrical conductivity, bio-impedance analysis, ultrasound scanning and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry.
Aimed at active research workers from advanced undergraduate level upwards, this book will be of particular interest to those working in the fields of animal ecology, conservation biology, animal nutrition and physiology.
Paperback re-issue; originally published in 2001.
'a well-structured book that provides a sufficiently complete overview of methods for the analysis of body composition that are potentially applicable to field studies of wild animals ! a worthy addition to the library stacks and your own personal library.' Donald Thomas, Journal of Experimental Biology
