Cover for Seed production and influence of heat on the germination of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Genista scorpius</i> (L.) DC.

Seed production in north-eastern Spain and the influence of high temperatures (in a range from 50°C to 150°C and exposures from 1 to 15 min) on the germination of Genista scorpius (L.) DC. were studied to investigate the possibility of regeneration by seed in silvopastoral systems of Mediterranean...

Cover for Lithium chloride and ipecacuanha syrup to induce sheep aversion to the intake of coffee plants.

Browsing of coffee plants by sheep is one of the major limitations to introducing sheep grazing on coffee plantations. Hence, it is worth finding a mechanism that will prevent animals browsing coffee plants. Emetic agents like lithium chloride (LiCl) have been used successfully in different animal...

Cover for Validation of the alkane technique to estimate complex diets in sheep and goats fed on heathland vegetation.

An experiment was carried out to validate the alkane technique for estimation of diets offered to sheep and goats of different combinations of herbaceous (Lolium perenne and Trifolium repens) and woody species (Erica sp. and Ulex gallii). Two groups of four cross-breed goats (G1 and G2) and four...
