This collection summarises current research on the structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract in pigs, the factors that can influence its effectiveness, as well as the nutritional strategies that can improve gut development and optimise gut function.
This collection provides an authoritative assessment of the current issues challenging the safety of agri-food supply chains and the recent technological developments implemented to improve safety and quality at all levels.
This collection summarises and reviews the wealth of recent research on the development of more environmentally friendly biological methods to control plant diseases.
This collection reviews advances in the key areas required to achieve durable disease resistance in cereal crops, from advances in understanding pathogen biology/epidemiology and plant pathogen interactions to identifying sources of resistance and advance techniques for breeding new varieties.
This collection summarises current developments in utilising seaweed and microalgae as alternative sources of protein. Chapters focus on identifying the different types of macroalgae and microalgae, cultivation and processing, as well as the practical application in human and livestock diets.
This collection reviews measurement and modelling of methane emissions and current mitigation strategies, including improving breeding and health, manure management as well as the role of grassland and feed supplements.
This volume reviews advances in on-farm herd health management to prevent and limit disease amongst dairy cattle. It surveys advances in disease epidemiology and monitoring, ways of optimising cattle immune function as well as enhancing health at different stages in the life cycle.
This volume begins with a review of advances in measuring soil biological activity. Parts 2 and 3 survey developments in measuring soil physical and chemical properties. The collection concludes by reviewing soil health indicators and decision support systems for improving soil management.
This volume reviews key research and the challenges faced in developing new livestock feed products that promote growth whilst also enhancing both product quality and safety. This collection also summarises recent key developments in the sector, including a better understanding of gut function and the need to replace antibiotics

New book explores the emergence of biocontrol measures and their role in achieving sustainable crop production
With growing concerns about the environmental impact of synthetic fungicides, amongst other issues, the crop protection sector faces mounting pressure to replace synthetic fungicides with more environmentally-friendly alternatives.
An emerging contender in this race is the use of biological control - or biocontrol - measures. These measures rely on the use of living organisms, such as insects and pathogens, to control pest outbreaks.
Identifying the emergence of biocontrol, award winning publisher Burleigh Dodds Science has released its latest book in its series on sustainable agriculture, Microbial bioprotectants for plant disease management.

NEW Review in Hatchery Practice
‘This book gives a good overall review of the advances that have recently occurred in the fields of poultry genetics and genomics…one thing that really struck me about this book was the calibre of the editorial team and the international range and expertise of the contributing authors.
With over 550 pages this book is well worth its place on the bookshelf of anyone who is interested in poultry breeding and genomics.’ (International Hatchery Practice)
