About The Book

This book offers an introduction to the microbes and microbial activity that occurs in the rumen. It also offers an in-depth description of rumen bacteria, protozoa and fungi, provides information on concentrations and factors which control or influence concentration and discusses both the synergism and negative effects resulting from microbial interactions.

The ability of herbivores, especially ruminants, to convert energy from cellulose (an energy source not usable by man) to meat, milk and other products, is both of interest and economic importance. An understanding of the activity in the rumen should aid nutritionists in developing adequate feedstuffs for a variety of ruminant animals. The book also covers information on gastrointestinal fermentation by wild ruminants and non-ruminant herbivores.
