An Illustrated Guide to Animal Science Terminology provides a single resource that includes commonly used terms, and pronunciations relevant to any animal science student without the need for an agriculture background to understand the language of animal science. The text covers traditional production animals, such as swine, cattle, sheep and horses, as well as poultry, companion animals, and companion birds. It includes chapters on genetics, nutrition, reproduction, anatomy and behavior. Alternative production animals and exotic companion animals are covered as well. There is a sampling of breeds, and extensive use of photographs and line art to clarify the terms, and it creates a connection between the term and the subject for the student. This text would be an excellent supplement for many introductory animal science courses that wish to cover the wide range and variety of species and disciplines in animal science.

    • As an educator I think an Illustrated Guide to Animal Science Terminology is a great idea. We have so many students at the secondary and postsecondary level who come to our classes with little or no background in animal science, and a lot of the problem is that they have never seen the animal science stuff that farm kids grew up with. Also, some of the new science in animal science is difficult for the students to visualize.
