Description: Not so long ago, applying scientific principles to animal welfare was unheard of. Now, there are many scientific journals, research and academic institutes that exist with the purpose of researching, teaching and disseminating information about Animal Welfare Science. This book looks at how and why Animal Welfare Science developed as a scientific discipline in its own right. It pays specific attention to how empirical, ethical and cultural elements are part and parcel of this discipline. It describes how science is used to assess animal welfare issues - the strengths and limitations of approaches - and how standards have emerged because of this.
