The new book presents the latest results on energy and protein metabolism
and nutrition. It is oriented towards livestock science but also addresses
general aspects of protein and energy metabolism as applied to animals or
The book is based around the following five key
- Nutrition and mitochondrial functions
- Regulation of body composition and/or product quality
by tissue metabolism
- ‘Omics’ in metabolism and nutrition studies
- Coordination between tissues for the metabolic
utilisation of nutrients
- From the parts to the whole or how to use detailed information to answer
Widely different approaches ranging from fundamental to integrative
approaches are applied to key concepts of nutrition.
Fundamental research is translated into practical outcomes through active
links with applied research and practical applications.
The newest research techniques and methods are also addressed and the
outcomes presented provide an integrated view of this topic. The conclusions may
eventually be integrated into systems of nutritional recommendations as new
nutritional challenges emerge.
This book will be of interest to all professionals and researchers who
concern themselves with developments in animal and human nutrition.
