"Reproductive biology of farm animals is a critical discipline because it addresses the pressing global need for a safe, plentiful, reliable, and affordable supply of meat, milk and fibre. Faced with the need to produce more food for a growing human population while at the same time conserving resources for future generations, it is clear that the demand for scientific advances and highly skilled researchers in reproductive biology will remain a priority worldwide. This book includes the manuscripts of the talks presented at the International Ruminant Reproduction Symposium in Anchorage, Alaska. These papers review current and relevant topics in ruminant reproduction and will be helpful to scientists and students interested in both fundamental and applied aspects of ruminant reproduction. Emphasis has been given to recent advances in our knowledge of the ruminant genome and the application of this information."--Back cover.
