Nutrient Requirements of Nonhuman Primates : Second Revised Edition, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

Description

This new release presents the wealth of information gleaned about nonhuman primates nutrition since the previous edition was published in 1978.

With expanded coverage of natural dietary habits, gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology, and the nutrient needs of species that have been difficult to maintain in captivity, it explores the impact on nutrition of physiological and life-stage considerations: infancy, weaning, immune function, obesity, aging, and more.

The committee also discusses issues of environmental enrichment such as opportunities for foraging. Based on the world's scientific literature and input from authoritative sources, the book provides best estimates of nutrient requirements.

The volume covers requirements for energy: carbohydrates, including the role of dietary fiber; proteins and amino acids; fats and fatty acids; minerals, fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins; and water.

The book also analyzes the composition of important foods and feed ingredients and offers guidelines on feed processing and diet formulation.
