About this book

A general introductory guide to poultry science for degree and advanced diploma courses in agriculture. This book explains the science underlying the productive processes of growth, reproduction and incubation. The applications of nutrition and breeding techniques are also described.
Poultry are farmed and are important sources of protein throughout the world. All students of agriculture are likely to be required to study poultry science to at least an introductory level. This book explains the science underlying the productive processes of growth, reproduction and incubation. The applications of nutrition and breeding techniques are described. The overall purpose is to provide the student with an understanding of the characteristics and physiological responses of domesticated poultry, with particular reference to production. the emphasis is on modelling responses rather than on biochemical and hormonal processes. The author stresses basic concepts and models, rather than practical production systems, so that the book should have worldwide applicability. The book represents a text for degree and advanced diploma courses in agriculture.
