CABI Book Info
Cover for Mathematical modelling in animal nutrition.

The primary purpose of each of the subsequent chapters of this book is to promulgate quantitative approaches concerned with elucidating mechanisms in a particular area of the nutrition of ruminants, pigs, poultry, fish or pets. Given the diverse scientific backgrounds of the contributors of each...

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 Modelling protozoal metabolism and volatile fatty acid production in the rumen.

The aim of this chapter is to describe two key aspects in the supply of absorbed nutrients, i.e. the quantitative representation of protozoal metabolism, and the quantitative representation of volatile fatty acid production in the rumen.

Cover for Supporting measurements required for evaluation of greenhouse gas emission models for enteric fermentation and stored animal manure.

This chapter briefly reviews processes and controlling factors involved in greenhouse gases (GHG) production and emission associated with animal production as well as the currently used models that describe GHG emissions for animal production. Supporting measurements and reporting standards for GHG ...

Cover for Compartmental models of protein turnover to resolve isotope dilution data.

In this chapter, the applications in the animal sciences of dynamic modelling, based on the rate:state formalism, with Type I solutions are illustrated. This chapter deals with modelling animal processes, i.e. specific components or functions of an individual organ or tissue (or whole organism)....

Cover for Modelling phosphorus metabolism.

In this chapter, examples of empirical, kinetic and mechanistic models of phosphorus (P) metabolism in ruminants and monogastric animals, viz. cattle, goats, sheep, horses, pigs and poultry, are discussed. The mechanistic models of P flow in ruminants and monogastric animals described in this...

Cover for Mathematical models in agriculture: quantitative methods for the plant, animal and ecological sciences.

This is a rewritten and expanded version of the 1984 book of the same title published by Butterworths. The objective remains the same: to teach advanced students of agriculture and related ecological sciences how to express ideas mathematically and solve the resulting mathematical problems....

Cover for Growth functions.

This chapter surveys a variety of growth equations, including commonly encountered ones such as the monomolecular, logistic, Gompertz and Richards, amongst others. These exhibit a range of shapes, encompassing diminishing returns and sigmoidal behaviour. Some of the equations can be derived from a...

Cover for Simple dynamic growth models.

This chapter extends the previous chapter by presenting several models some of which are obtained by modification of the simplest growth functions, but are often not analytically soluble. First, ways in which simple exponential growth can be limited are considered. Then the representation of delays ...
