What effect will intense genetic selection have on your livestock or on other domestic animals?
That question and many more are answered in a new book offered by Academic Press. Temple Grandin, Colorado State University animal behavior specialist, has edited Genetics and the Behavior of Domestic Animals.
The book includes sections by leading animal behaviorists. It covers research on pigs, cattle, sheep, horses, poultry and rats as well as herding and guard dogs.
It abstracts research topics from behavioral genetics, animal science and veterinary literature. It also includes practical application guidelines. Written to be easily understood, it contains a minimum of jargon.
The 384-page book costs $79.95. To order, call (800) 321-5068 or send a fax to (800) 874-6418. You can also write to Academic Press, 6277 Sea Harbor Drive, Orlando, FL 32887.
