The seventh edition of Anatomy and Physiology of Farm Animals is a thoroughly updated and revised version of this classic text. Incorporating a number of new illustrations and a new chapter on poultry, the book maintains its reputation for clarity, balanced scope, and breadth of content. The seventh edition provides veterinary, animal science, agriculture, and veterinary technician students with a comprehensive yet clear reference to understanding the fundamentals of anatomy and physiology of farm animals.This informative text also offers a number of features designed to enhance student learning and comprehension, including clinical extracts and a glossary of commonly used abbreviations. Cellular and molecular mechanisms in physiological processes are emphasized, with a focus on the relationship between these mechanisms and clinical signs. Drawing on current science and terminology, the seventh edition′s efficient approach to the subject ensures its usefulness well beyond the classroom.Key Features: Presents an updated and revised version of the classic text Includes a new chapter on poultry to provide full coverage of farm species Offers clinical extracts and a glossary of commonly used abbreviations Provides a comprehensive reference, with a careful balance between depth and scope Explains important species differentiation information, with the most attention given to the horse and cow and differences highlighted for the sheep, goat, and pig Emphasizes cellular and molecular mechanisms in physiological processes
