About this book

Rumenology combines information about the behaviour that allowed ruminants to survive and to evolve on Earth: the rumen. Furthermore, the reader will find aspects involving rumen anatomy, physiology, microbiology, fermentation, metabolism, manipulation, kinetics and modeling. Thus, Rumenology was not only organized to help students involved in areas such as ruminant nutrition and ruminant production but also instructors gathering material for teaching practices.
