This new edition of a highly successful text, published in its second edition in 1981, adheres to the framework laid down by the late Professor Underwood, but has been thoroughly revised by Dr. Neville Suttle. In addition to bringing the book up-to-date, adding new definitions and reports on new advances, Dr. Suttle has added new chapters on such topics as the unique need of the ruminant for elemental sulfur, newer trace elements, notably chromium, and improved conduct and interpretation of supplementation trials. Easy reference appendix tables summarize essential information on feed composition, dietary requirements, and criteria of mineral status in livestock. The book will continue to represent a concise text on this important topic for advanced students of animal science.

N. Suttle, Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh.Review:
"Suttle (Moredun Research Institute, Penicuik, England) here revises the late Underwood's 1980 update of his 1970 reference for veterinarians, animal scientists, and advanced students of nutrition. He begins with three general chapters on the physiological basis of mineral needs, dietary sources, and principles for detecting deficiencies. Calcium and phosphorus he now treats separately to acknowledge their distinctive metabolism outside the skeleton. He also details the contrasting features of phosphorus and magnesium nutrition in ruminants and non-ruminants, and includes a new chapter stressing the unique need of ruminants for elemental sulphur. Other changes are in the chapters on trace elements, new chapters on occasionally beneficial elements and essentially toxic elements, and the improved conduct and interpretation of supplementation trials."--SciTech Book News
