Emerging Equine Science
edited by J. Alliston

Emerging Equine Science is based on presentations given at a conference organized by the British Society of Animal Science and the British Grassland Society, and includes several overseas contributors

The research findings are grouped into five main topics: Health, welfare and behavior, breeding and genetics, nutrition, grassland and equine business management and exercise physiology.

Contents

  1. Metabolic responses of muscle to exercise
  2. Muscle morphology heterogeneity: control, significance for performance and responses to training
  3. The mechanics of equine locomotion: a review of progress in our understanding of the mechanical basis of locomotor performance and disease
  4. Breathing and bleeding- the problems of being big and running fast
  5. Causal factors of equine stereotypy
  6. The putative reward function of equine stereotypic behavior
  7. Equine neutrophil elastase 2A concentrations in tracheal wash preparations and synovial fluid as a potential objective marker for inflammatory airway and joint diseases in horses
  8. Development and application of medern breeding technologies to the horse
  9. Mapping the grey gene in Thoroughbred horses
  10. Factors influencing placental and fetal development in the mare: important considerations for the selection of embryo recipients
  11. Towards a common equine rationing system across the European nation
  12. Partitioning degradation of feeds between different segments of the equine digestive tract
  13. Exploiting dietary fibre in equid diets
  14. Effects of airway inflammation, ozone and exercise on the pulmonary antioxidant capacity of the horse: a war of nutrition
