Encyclopaedia of Ruminant Physiology: Digestion, Metabolism and Impact ofNutrition on Gene Expression, Immunology and Stress covers study of ruminant physiology, digestion, metabolism and impact of nutrition on gene expression, immunology and stress.
Ruminants are mammals that are able to acquire nutrients from plant-based food by fermenting it in a specialized stomach prior to digestion, principally through bacterial actions. Like other vertebrates, ruminant are unable to digest plant material directly, because they lack enzymes to break down cellulose in the cell walls. The volume “Physiology of Digestion in the Ruminants” is divided into ten chapters.
