Animal physiology is the study of the internal physical and chemical functions of animals. Professionals in this field may explore the makeup of animals, including their genetics, behaviours and their biological structure. A degree in animal physiology can lead to opportunities in a wide variety of areas, including fisheries, veterinary sciences and pharmaceutical research. This book entitled ‚ÄúAnimal Physiology‚ÄĚ consists of 25 chapters. The chapters are mainly focused on the physiological changes in the animals when exposed to toxicants, drugs, phytochemicals, etc., The authors have put an effort to explain each and every point of respective studies. This book has been brought to the society, keeping in mind students of graduate and post graduate, research scholars and teaching faculty.

Sahiwal is one of the important breeds of India known for its superiority in milk production and other inherent abilities. However, due to indiscriminate crossbreeding, the population of this valuable germplasm has declined over years in India. Presently, efforts are being made extensively to increase its population size besides improving its genetic potential. Since the breeding strategy for genetic improvement of any breed requires the fair understanding of the genetic and phenotypic parameters and also its genetic worth for milk production, it becomes imperative to conduct scientific study on these aspects. The book on ‚ÄúGenetic Evaluation of Sahiwal Cattle‚ÄĚ is a compilation of the research work carried out on this breed of cattle maintained at the Cattle Yard of NDRI, Karnal for more than 60 years covering the different areas of Animal Breeding. The book covers the research findings of almost all the areas of animal breeding viz., sex ratio, body weights and growth rates, milk production, reproduction, lactation curve modelling, stayability and genetic evaluation of Sahiwal cows and sires. It contains the results of most of the research work conducted by the postgraduate and doctoral students of Dairy Cattle Breeding Division of NDRI, Karnal under the Chairmanship of the first author. As this book will provide the overall information on the Sahiwal cattle, it will serve as a useful ready reckoner for students, researchers and other stakeholders.

The sustainable use of microorganisms in food fermentation is based on an interrelationship with regard to indigenous knowledge of food fermentation, modern expertise and information, basic understanding of the microbial background of a fermentation and of good hygienic practices, and conservation of microbial strains. Ethnic fermented fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India are considered to preserve microbial diversity ex situ and they are custodians of microbial diversity and play a key role in the storage and supply of authentic reference material for research and development. This book has updated and collated information and researches carried out on microbiology and health-promoting benefits of fermented and traditionally preserved fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India. The present book is the first of this kind on compilation of various traditionally preserved ethnic fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India regions.

Animal Science is described as studying the biology of animals that are under the control of humankind. Historically, the degree was called animal husbandry and the animals studied were livestock species, like cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and horses. Today, courses available now look at a far broader area to include companion animals like dogs and cats, and many exotic species. This book entitled ‚ÄúRecent trends in Animal Sciences‚ÄĚ consists of 24 chapters. The chapters are mainly focused on the Prevalence of ruminants, economic importance of animal husbandry, newer technology in the food production and disease management etc., The authors have put an effort to explain each and every point of respective studies. This book has been brought to the society, keeping in mind students of graduate and post graduate, research scholars and teaching faculty.
