About this title


An invaluable resource for animal scientists, veterinarians, and biomedical researchers, this book shows that in the past twenty years, the knowledge base about the physiology and biology of the pig has grown phenomenally. This is because of the animal's rapid rise in popularity as a model subject in biomedical research and the ongoing research concerning its use worldwide as a food source. The Biology of the Domestic Pig offers an integrated description of the full scope of current knowledge. The editors have included chapters on the expanding fields of immunology, endocrinology, and genetics. Growth, digestion, nutrition, respiration, excretion, and reproduction are extensively treated. The final chapter covers the emerging applications of transgenics, metabolite replacement therapy, and xenotransplantation (the use of animal tissues in humans).


"The goal of this book was to present an integrated description of the current knowledge of the biology of the normal pig. . . . While not intended as a complete reference source, it provides a basis for continuing to develop a greater body of information."―Feedstuffs

"As veterinarians, it is always useful to know what is normal so that we can recognize the abnormal. This book gives an excellent base line for what is the normal and the editors have intentionally avoided particular attention to infectious deseases and pathology. . . . The Biology of the Domestic Pig is an excellent and informative book for reference by both the veterinary and applied medical fraternity."―D. G. S. Burch, Pig Journal
