Genetics And The Behavior Of Domestic Animals

£44.99

Product description

Behaviour is shaped by both genetics and experience--nature and nurture. This book synthesises research from behavioural genetics and animal and veterinary science, bridging the gap between these fields. The objective is to show that principles of behavioural genetics have practical applications to agricultural and companion animals. The continuing domestication of animals is a complex process whose myriad impacts on animal behaviour are commonly under-appreciated. Genetic factors play a significant role in both species-specific behaviours and behavioural differences exhibited by individuals in the same species. Leading authorities explore the impact of increased intensities of selection on domestic animal behaviour. Rodents, cattle, pigs, sheep, horses, herding and guard dogs, and poultry are all included in these discussions of genetics and behaviour, making this book useful to veterinarians, livestock producers, laboratory animal researchers and technicians, animal trainers and breeders, and any researcher interested in animal behaviour.

In very good condition, showing few signs of use.
