This new release presents the wealth of information gleaned about nonhuman primates nutrition since the previous edition was published in 1978. With expanded coverage of natural dietary habits, gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology, and the nutrient needs of species that have been difficult to maintain in captivity, it explores the impact on nutrition of physiological and life-stage considerations: infancy, weaning, immune function, obesity, aging, and more. The committee also discusses issues of environmental enrichment such as opportunities for foraging. Based on the world's scientific literature and input from authoritative sources, the book provides best estimates of nutrient requirements. The volume covers requirements for energy: carbohydrates, including the role of dietary fiber; proteins and amino acids; fats and fatty acids; minerals, fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins; and water. The book also analyzes the composition of important foods and feed ingredients and offers guidelines on feed processing and diet formulation.

Since 1944, the National Research Council has published 10 editions of the Nutrient Requirements of Swine. This reference has guided nutritionists and other professionals in academia and the swine and feed industries in developing and implementing nutritional and feeding programs for swine. The swine industry has undergone considerable changes since the tenth edition was published in 1998 and some of the requirements and recommendations set forth at that time are no longer relevant or appropriate. The eleventh revised edition of the Nutrient Requirements of Swine builds on the previous editions published by the National Research Council. A great deal of new research has been published during the last 15 years and there is a large amount of new information for many nutrients. In addition to a thorough and current evaluation of the literature on the energy and nutrient requirements of swine in all stages of life, this volume includes information about feed ingredients from the biofuels industry and other new ingredients, requirements for digestible phosphorus and concentrations of it in feed ingredients, a review of the effects of feed additives and feed processing, and strategies to increase nutrient retention and thus reduce fecal and urinary excretions that could contribute to environmental pollution. The tables of feed ingredient composition are significantly updated. Nutrient Requirements of Swine represents a comprehensive review of the most recent information available on swine nutrition and ingredient composition that will allow efficient, profitable, and environmentally conscious swine production.

Updating two previous National Research Council publications, Nutrient Requirements of Sheep, Sixth Revised Edition, 1985, and Nutrient Requirements of Goats, First Edition, 1981, this new book provides an evaluation of the scientific literature on the nutrient requirements of small ruminants in all stages of life. In addition, effects of the environment, feed additives, and metabolism modifiers on nutrient requirements are addressed. Proper formulation of diets for small ruminants depends on adequate knowledge of their nutrient requirements. These requirements depend on the breed and age of the animal and whether he or she is exercising, pregnant, or lactating. Nutrient Requirements of Small Ruminants brings together a summary of this latest data with new and expanded information on the composition of feeds commonly consumed by small ruminants, both domestic and wild. For the first time this authoritative reference work includes information on cervids and camelids. Primarily intended for animal nutritionists, veterinarians, and other scientists, some sections will be useful to individual sheep and goat owners and managers and to those responsible for the care and management of wildlife species. As both a practical and a technical reference book, this material is written to ensure that diets of small ruminants contain adequate amounts of nutrients and that intakes of certain nutrients are not so excessive that they inhibit performance or impair health.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Comprehensive data in an easy-to-use format This updated edition presents the huge amount of data needed for effective and accurate nutritional decisions in the production, marketing, and control of food products. It is designed for dietitians and nutritional experts, as well as food scientists, researchers, and manufacturers. The food composition and nutrition tables in this book —presented in English, German, and French — address varying nutritional requirements and allow for the constant changes in the nutritional assessment of food constituents. The seventh edition builds on the strong base of the previous editions by incorporating discussions on select new foods, investigations in bioactive compounds, as well as additional and revised data on more than 800 foods and 300 constituents. New in the seventh edition— Updated figures for iodine Vitamin K, and purines in fish New data on amino acid and fatty acids found in milk and milk products Up-to-date information on numerous mineral values Information on glucosinolates and fatty acids as bioactive compounds in vegetables Additional foods such as spelt, seabream, lamb cuts and loin of goat

Dieses Buch wird als Atlas bezeichnet, nicht als Lehrbuch. Wir nehmen an, daß sein Benutzer Zugang zum Inhalt der Standardwerke theoretischer und praktischer Hämatologie hat. Wir haben daher nicht die Absicht, deren Dar legungen zu wiederholen. Wir sind der festen Uberzeugung, daß es keinen Ersatz für eigene Bemühungen um mikroskopische Präparate gibt. um Ver ständnis für die hämatologische Zytologie zu gewinnen, aber wir sind ebenfalls überzeugt, daß eine Sammlung von Farbmikrophotos eine nutzliche Ergänzung solcher mikroskopischer Studien darstellen kann. Es existieren gute Atlanten der Hämatologie, aber es besteht Bedarf für einen nicht zu umfangreichen Band von ausgezeichneten Mikrophotos üblicher Große, die eine praktische Hilfe für den täglichen Gebrauch am Mikroskopiertisch sind. Dies zu erreichen war unsere Absicht. Die Abbildungen zeigen Beispiele der meisten Zelltypen, auf die man üblicherweise stoßt. und einige, die seltener sind, aber wir haben eine ein seitige Darstellung von Seltenheiten vermieden. Wir haben auch keine Auswahl von überscharfen photogenen Ausschnitten getroffen, da unser Objektiv eher der Wirklichkeit als der Perfektion folgte. Wir beurteilen die Verschiedenheit in Färbung und Hintergrund unter der Sammlung von Aufnahmen nicht als praxis feindlich, sondern als Hilfe beim Abschätzen der farberischen Variationen, die bei den meisten Färbemethoden im Liblichen Laboratorium eingeschlossen sind.
