Summary

This latest edition upholds its strong reputation for clarity, balanced scope, and breadth of content, placing Anatomy and Physiology of Farm Animals among the most widely accepted resources available to the veterinary, animal sciences, agriculture, or veterinary technician student. Highlights of the Sixth Edition include: * New chapter on body defenses, including practical information on vaccination * Important species differentiation, with primary attention given to the horse and cow, but also descriptions between the sheep, goat, and hog. * Increased emphasis on the cellular and molecular mechanisms in the physiological processes, with explanation of the relationships between mechanisms and phenomena that can be observed in intact animals. * Revised artwork, including nearly 100 new and original line drawings The Sixth Edition also provides a number of features designed to make student learning, comprehension, and reference more efficient. Clinical extracts, especially useful in the clinical setting, are highlighted in blue throughout the text. Plus, a glossary of commonly used abbreviations is included in the appendix. Technical terms not found in a standard college dictionary are also defined within the text. The student will appreciate the simplicity and efficiency of the Sixth Edition, as well as its comprehensive range of content. This informative text is bound to serve as a useful resource well beyond the classroom.
