“This one volume encyclopedia contains over 300 entries dealing with various aspects of animal science. The focus is on domesticated animals of economic importance, especially ungulates such as cows, goats, horses, and sheep, but also animals such as ratites (ostriches and relatives), mink, catfish, and deer. … The articles also include many entries on non-species based topics such as transgenics, estrous cycles, animal contributions to society, and animal products such as eggs, meat, or hides. There are also articles dealing with specific issues in the care of domesticated animals such as feed, proper housing, antibiotics, and philosophical aspects of animal welfare. The articles are aimed at animal science practitioners and students. Most articles are about 2,000 words long, and summarize the state of the art in the various topics, offering 5-10 citations for further reading and cross-references to other entries. … The encyclopedia is available as print, electronic, and combined products …The encyclopedia will be a good purchase  for academic libraries dealing with agriculture, veterinary medicine, or related disciplines. ”
