CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Methods for the measurement of air pollutants.

Currently, air pollution is one of the most imperative problems and has a major role in global climate change and premature deaths throughout the world. Various types of air pollutants (e.g. particulate matter, NOx, SOx, CO and O3) are present in the atmosphere and have significant effects on human ...

Cover for The future role and practice of cattle farming.

In this chapter, the challenges in cattle production were highlighted and this includes their inefficient use of land and water resources to produce human food, compared with other food animals and agricultural crops; their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, both through direct emissions of...

Cover for Carbon footprints of food of animal origin.

Animal production contributes substantially to global greenhouse gas emissions (about 14.5%). So-called carbon footprints (CFs) consider the greenhouse gas potential of climate-relevant gases (e.g. CO2 × 1; CH4 × 23; N2O × 296), which is given in carbon dioxide (CO2)-equivalent g-1 or kg-1 of...

Cover for Thermodynamic and kinetic control of methane emissions from ruminants.

CH4 emissions occur directly from animal digestion (enteric) and from animal waste that is stored under anaerobic conditions. In both regards, CH4 emissions depends on kinetic and thermodynamic factors. With kinetic control, the profile of products formed depends on the relative rates of the...

Cover for Ionophores: a tool for improving ruminant production and reducing environmental impact.

Ruminal fermentation is an inherently inefficient process converting up to 12% of dietary carbon and energy into end products (e.g. CH4) that are largely unusable by the animal. Ruminant nutritionists seek to modify fermentation, specifically by increasing ruminal propionic acid yield, reducing...

Cover for Residual feed intake and breeding approaches for enteric methane mitigation.

The expanding world human population will require greater food production within the constraints of increasing societal pressure to minimize the resulting impact on the environment. Breeding goals in the past have achieved substantial gains in environmental load per unit product produced, despite...

Cover for Immunization and tannins in livestock enteric methane amelioration.

The complexity of the rumen microbial ecosystem supports the efficient conversion of various carbohydrates to volatile fatty acids for fulfilling host energy requirement via stepwise disposal of hydrogen (H2) through the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane (CH4). Although, this mechanism...

Cover for Phage therapy in livestock methane amelioration.

Viruses of prokaryotes (phages) are obligate microbial pathogens that can, in the lytic phase of development, infect and lyse their respective bacterial or archaeal hosts. As such, these viruses can reduce the population density of their hosts rapidly, and have been viewed as possible agents of...

Cover for Feed-based approaches in enteric methane amelioration.

Mitigation of methane (CH4) emissions from ruminants is necessary not only from the global warming point of view but also for saving dietary energy. Livestock being the significant contributors to the anthropogenic CH4 pool have remained the prime target of global research for the past two decades, ...

Cover for Methanotrophs in enteric methane mitigation.

In recent years, greater concern for environmental health, especially the mitigation of greenhouse gases, has been debated on various platforms. Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) and is produced globally by both biotic and anthropogenic activities. The most important recognized sources ...
