About this book

Proceedings of the 4th European symposium on South American camelids and DECAMA European Seminar

This collection of papers brings experience of both South American and European experts together. It considers current trends in reproduction, nutrition, health, fibre morphology and genetics and discusses as new topic aspects of the potential of meat production and commercialisation in South America. The particular advantages of South American camelids for the sustainable use of fragile ecosystems with native pastures are outlined. Roundtables discussions focus on the interaction between wild and domestic species, the management of alpaca populations outside of South America and health aspects under European conditions.
