Synopsis: The ninth edition of this best-selling book examines the biological principles, scientific relationships, and management practices of livestock production. Blending the discussion of science, disciplines and industries, it effectively introduces readers to Animal Science using a breadth and depth that is unparalleled. Following a logical organization, it first discusses animal products, then basic biological principles (growth, genetics, reproduction, nutrition, health, etc.) and finally the feeding, breeding and management of primary livestock industries. It also gives readers insight into the societal issues surrounding the livestock industry and an overview of the careers and opportunities available within the field.

Promoting a conceptual understanding and taking an integrative systems approach, ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY 2E illustrates the individual organization as well as the collective interdependence of each complete physiological system. The text begins with chapters on integrative principles and on the genomic, molecular, and cellular basis of physiology, then proceeds to chapters on individual organ systems. For each organ system, evolutionary forces as well as current cellular and molecular research are discussed. To clearly illustrate system interdependence, each systems chapter contains a summary, titled Making Connections. To make the text even more accessible to students, the authors also incorporate a comparative approach to animal physiology, examining the basic physiology of many vertebrate and nonvertebrate animals as well as their primary diseases and ability to respond to environmental changes.

Es ist ein idyllischer Sommerabend in Cambridge, Massachusetts, an dem Doctor Kay Scarpetta zu der Leiche einer Radfahrerin in einem Park gerufen wird. Der Körper ist starr, doch die junge Frau kann noch nicht lange tot sein. Teile der Kleidung wurden ihr vom Körper gerissen, doch nicht von Menschenhand. Die goldene Totenkopfkette ist noch da, doch sie hat sich in die Haut der jungen Frau eingebrannt. Alles deutet auf einen Blitzschlag hin, doch es gab kein Gewitter. Noch ahnt Scarpetta nicht, dass diese mysteriöse Leiche auch mit ihr zu tun hat. Dass sie eine tödliche Nachricht von einem Menschen ist, der von Hass zerfressen ist - und der nicht aufhören wird, bis er am Ziel ist. "Von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite Spannung pur. Wieder ein geniales Werk der beliebten Autorin. Das ihr Schreibstil auch diesmal perfekt ist, muss man wohl nicht erwähnen. Es handelt sich eben um eine Toperzählerin." (Magazin Köllefornia) "Patricia Cornwell führt auch im 24. Teil der Kay-Scarpetta-Serie ihre erfolgreiche Mischung aus forensischer Spurensuche und raffiniert konstruierter Thrilleraction fort. Und überrascht Fans wie Neueinsteiger mit der ungewöhnlichsten Mordwaffe seit langem." (kulturnews) "Patricia Cornwells Bücher sind in 36 Sprachen in 120 Ländern erschienen, damit gilt sie als eine der erfolgreichsten Spannungsautorinnen der Welt. Eine Meisterin der Forensik! Auch ihr neuer Roman lässt Adrenalin aufkommen (...)." (Bremer) "Keiner reicht an Cornwell heran, wenn es um Forensik geht." New York Times Book Review über TOTENSTARRE "Dunkel und klug geplottet." Booklist über TOTENSTARRE "Cornwells Romane preschen voran mit leistungsstarkem Treibstoff, einem Cocktail aus Adrenalin und Furcht." The Times, London über TOTENSTARRE

Großmutter Lisette hatte ein Geheimnis, dessen ist sich die junge Witwe Camille sicher, als ihr eine Kiste mit vergilbten Aufnahmen in die Hände fällt. Kann es sein, dass ihr Opa gar nicht ihr leiblicher Großvater war? Unterstützt von dem charmanten Historiker Finn, begibt sie sich auf dem malerischen Landgut ihrer Familie in der Provence auf Spurensuche. Dort erfährt Camille nicht nur Unglaubliches über Lisette - in den wogenden Lavendelfeldern von Bellerive entdeckt sie auch, dass Finn der erste Mann sein könnte, den sie seit dem Tod ihres Gatten in ihr Herz lassen möchte. "Meisterhaft beschreibt Susan Wiggs die Eigenheiten menschlicher Beziehungen." Jodi Picoult "Wiggs ist eine unübertroffene Geschichtenerzählerin, mit der sich kaum eine andere Autorin messen kann ... Ihre Beobachtungsgabe ist bemerkenswert." Romantic Times "Susan Wiggs schreibt bewegende, unvergessliche Romane über Träume und Hoffnungen, in denen sich jede Leserin wiederfindet."

Livestock production systems are the result of an interaction between domestic animals and the environment, modulated by man, that dates back to Neolithic times. As a consequence of this interaction among the wide diversity of animal resources, natural habitats and population needs, very different farming systems have developed across the Mediterranean Basin. Understanding the mechanisms and effects of these relationships is key to design the farming systems best adapted to each condition, guaranteeing an adequate balance between target animal production and environmental outcomes provided by these systems. This is indeed a multidimensional topic, influenced by animal genetics, feeding resources, flock management, and economic and social aspects inside and outside the household. Therefore, this book focuses on the basis of the animal-environment interactions and the impact of human activities on the type and magnitude of these interactions. In this context, the issue of sustainability of livestock production is evaluated considering economic, social and environmental aspects. This book contributes to upgrade the state of the art in Mediterranean conditions, providing indicators and procedures of application across a wide range of systems, and hence of interest for researchers, students and professionals concerned with livestock production and the environment.
