Livestock Production and Climate Change PDF. In a changing climate, livestock production is expected to exhibit dual roles of mitigation and adaptation in order to meet the challenge of food security.
Livestock Production and Climate Change PDF
This book approaches the issues of livestock production and climate change through three sections: I. Livestock production, II. Climate change and, III. Enteric methane amelioration.
Section I addresses issues of feed quality and availability, abiotic stress (heat and nutritional) and strategies for alleviation, livestock generated nitrogen and phosphorus pollution, and approaches for harnessing the complex gut microbial diversity.
Section II discusses the effects of climate change on livestock diversity, farm animal reproduction, impact of meat production on climate change, and emphasising the role of indigenous livestock in climatic change to sustain production.
Section III deals with the most recent approaches to amelioration of livestock methane such as breeding for low methane emissions, reductive acetogenesis, immunization/vaccine-based concepts and archaea phage therapy.
The reciprocity of livestock production and climate change is a global issue, which needs the collective efforts of researchers from different parts of the world. Translation research always emerges from sound basic knowledge.
Therefore, attempts have been made to describe each chapter in that light, focusing on development and application. This book brings together authors from 12 countries from Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia and the USA.
The selection of authors is an indication of the relevance of this subject, as they have addressed different issues in a global perspective. Each chapter is written by renowned professionals who have expertise in a given field and who have made a substantial contribution to the progressing science in that particular area.
