The theory and application of mammalian genetics have evolved rapidly over the last two decades to include immunogenetics and molecular genetics, creating fresh insights into biological processes. These developments, together with improved management practices, have revolutionised pig production. This book is a comprehensive reference work on pig genetics and its integration with livestock management and production technology to improve performance. All relevant topics have been included, from phylogeny, morphological traits, diseases and behaviour to transgenics, performance traits, genetic conservation and genome mapping. Linkage maps and the latest list of identified loci are included. Chapters have been specially commissioned for the volume by internationally recognized experts from Europe, North America and Australia. The book will be invaluable to advanced students and research workers in all branches of animal genetics and breeding, livestock producers and veterinarians.
