CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Linear models for determining digestibility.

A brief overview of linear regression is presented in this chapter, followed by an appraisal examining the use of linear models to estimate digestibility, one of the main components of the nutritive value of feedstuffs, and hence one of the most studied variables in quantitative animal nutrition.

Cover for Models to interpret degradation profiles obtained from <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in situ</i> incubation of ruminant feeds.

Degradation kinetic parameters are usually estimated from degradation profiles obtained using the polyester bag technique or the gas production technique. Models to describe either in situ disappearance curves or gas production profiles were derived from first principles by considering simple...

Cover for Non-linear functions in animal nutrition.

The aims in this chapter are: (1) to introduce briefly some of the basic principles of non-linear regression; (2) to present some of the non-linear functions used in animal nutrition to represent time-dependent processes and events; and (3) to examine the current and potential use of these...

Cover for Functions for microbial growth.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of several mathematical functions for describing microbial growth curves. The functions considered were three-phase linear, logistic, Gompertz, Richards, Weibull and Baranyi. One data-set was used, comprising 34 curves stemming from viable count ...

Cover for Prediction of energy supply in ruminants, with emphasis on forages.

This review focuses upon developments in energy evaluation of feeds, particularly forages, with attention given to the role of in sacco and in vitro methods, in combination with mechanistic mathematical modelling, in predicting energy supply to the animal.
