Designed to cover techniques for analysis of data in the animal sciences, this popular textbook provides an overview of the basic principles of statistics enabling the subsequent applications to be carried out with familiarity and understanding. Each chapter begins by introducing a problem with practical questions, followed by a brief theoretical background. Most topics are followed up with numerical examples to illustrate the methods described using data-sets from animal sciences and related fields. The same examples are then solved using the SAS software package. Written primarily for students and researchers in animal sciences, the text is also useful for those studying agricultural, biological, and veterinary sciences.

Forages and grazing in horse nutrition

Forages should be the basis of all diets in horse feeding. Therefore it is of major importance to determine which parameters will influence their quality. Changes on chemical composition along the vegetative cycle, nutrient losses during harvesting, preservation and storage are factors that could have an effect on nutritive value, as well on digestibility and palatability. A specific grazing and ingesting behaviour, linked to plant preferences and the selection of feeding sites will have an impact on biodiversity. This will determine the options on plant species and varieties and further management of pastures for horses. This book highlights the role of forages and grazing in horse nutrition and also gathers information about related topics, such as the contribution of local breeds for the sustainability and development of rural areas, their impact on landscape and relationships with environmental preservation. This book is the 6th volume in a scientific series conceived through the European Workshop on Equine Nutrition (EWEN) which falls under the umbrella of the Horse Commission of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP). All these materials provide an interesting basis for further discussion, not only in specialized forums, but also for those involved in horse production.

Es ist nicht immer einfach, einen Neuling in die Grundlagen der pathologischen Histologie einzuführen. Im deutschen Studienplan ist zu diesem Zweck ein eigenes Praktikum vorgesehen, bei dem der Student mit dem Objekt, dem histologi schen Präparat, unmittelbar in Berührung kommt. Leider ist es heute, da Semesterkurse mit 150 bis 200 Hörern an der Tagesordnung sind, nicht mehr möglich, den Studierenden eine eigene Präparatesammlung in die Hand zu geben: Wollte man nämlich jedem Studierenden bloß 150 Präparate mitgeben, so würde das pro Jahr die Herstellung von 2 x 200 X 150, das heißt 60000 Präparaten bedeuten. Dazu fehlt heute Zeit, Geld und vor allem Personal. Außerdem weiß man aus Erfahrung, daß diese Präparate zwar nach der Ablegung des Examens fein säuberlich aufgehoben, aber kaum je mehr angesehen werden - ich selbst schließe mich bei dieser Feststellung nicht aus. Trotzdem wäre es aber gut, wenn jene charakteristischen histologischen Bilder, deren Grundzüge der Studierende im Praktikum kennengelernt hat, auch weiter vor seinem geistigen Auge lebendig blieben und sich evtl. nach den Bedürfnissen des Tages erweiterten und vermehrten. Hier kann nun das vorliegende Werk einspringen, indem es Erinnerungen wachhält und in der einmal erlernten Sprache der pathologischen Histologie neue Bilder beibringt und erläutert. Kein Buch, keine noch so naturgetreue Abbildung wird zwar jemals die Anschauung eines Präparates unter dem Mikroskop ersetzen können, aber unter allen den möglichen Behelfen erscheint der vorliegende Atlas als der beste Ersatz für das Präparat.

Die 3. vollständig überarbeitete Auflage dieses Buches führt in die Biologie parasitärer Einzeller, Würmer und Arthropoden ein. Die Autoren bieten auf Grundlage der aktuellen Systematik eine Übersicht über die verschiedenen Parasitengruppen. Ausführlich wird auf wichtige Infektionserreger, wie die der Malaria, Schlafkrankheit und Toxoplasmose eingegangen, wobei die molekularen Grundlagen der Pathogene erläutert werden. Außerdem werden Parasiten als Krankheitsüberträger dargestellt und wichtige Infektionskrankheiten, die bei Tieren vorkommen, besprochen. Daher wendet sich dieses Buch sowohl an Biologen, als auch an Veterinärmediziner und Mediziner. In den einzelnen Kapiteln kommen die Anpassungen an die parasitische Lebensweise zur Sprache. Anhand häufiger Vertreter werden exemplarisch typische Lebenszyklen, die Immunreaktionen und die resultierenden Krankheitsbilder erklärt. Viele Abbildungen veranschaulichen dabei den Text. Die Prüfungsfragen am Ende eines jeden Kapitels helfen den Lerninhalt zu rekapitulieren und zu verinnerlichen.
