Book review - "Nutritional physiology of the horse" - Ellis, Andrea D., HIll, Julian

  There has been a considerable advance in our knowledge of equine nutritional physiology over the past two decades, as techniques originally developed for ruminant research have been systematically applied to horses. “Nutritional physiology of the horse” presents a rigorous review of much of this work including chapters on the biological status of the horse; digestive physiology; feed chemistry and digestive processes; feed and fee evaluation in vivo; energy from feed; energy metabolism; protein metabolism; mineral nutrition; vitamins and feeing practices in relation to health and welfare.
