An Illustrated Guide to Animal Science Terminology provides a single resource that includes commonly used terms, and pronunciations relevant to any animal science student without the need for an agriculture background to understand the language of animal science. The text covers traditional production animals, such as swine, cattle, sheep and horses, as well as poultry, companion animals, and companion birds. It includes chapters on genetics, nutrition, reproduction, anatomy and behavior. Alternative production animals and exotic companion animals are covered as well. There is a sampling of breeds, and extensive use of photographs and line art to clarify the terms, and it creates a connection between the term and the subject for the student. This text would be an excellent supplement for many introductory animal science courses that wish to cover the wide range and variety of species and disciplines in animal science.
