Handbook of Domestic Animals
from C.H.I.P.S.

Biology of Growth of Domestic Animals
by Colin G. Scanes

The text considers the interface of growth with disciplines including nutrition, genetics, and environment management, as well as specific aspects of growth in livestock and companion animal species. Man’s relationship with animals is reviewed as an introduction to the importance of domestic animals which have been critical to human development providing nutrition, income, transportation, locomotive power, companionship and entertainment.

Biology of Growth of Domestic Animals critically examines the fundamental process of growth both from a systems viewpoint (mathematical aspects, modeling, cell and molecular biology, hormones, growth factors, the extra-cellular matrix) and at the organ level (muscle, adipose, mammary gland and bone).
