Sustainable Goat Production in Adverse Environments: Volume II - Local Goat Breeds


 

This book covers more than 40 indigenous goat breeds and several ecotypes around the globe and describes genotypic and phenotype traits related to species adaptation to harsh environments and climate change. It also addresses sustainable global farming of local goat breeds in different production systems and agro-ecosystems. Discussing three main global regions: Asia, Africa, and Europe, it particularly focuses on adverse environments such as mountain, semiarid and arid regions.

The topic of this highly readable book includes the disciplines of animal physiology, breeding, sustainable agriculture, biodiversity and veterinary science, and as such it provides valuable information for academics, practitioners, and general readers with an interest in those fields. 


João Simões
Born in 1967 in Portugal and son of small farmers, João Simões soon developed an affinity for agriculture and livestock that was to shape his professional life and career. From 1993, as a DVM he mainly worked in large-animal clinics. Simultaneously, he joined the Portuguese academy as a professor at the School of Veterinary Sciences, University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro. His academic research is focused on goat reproduction, and he obtained his PhD degree in Veterinary Science on the subject in 2004. He has written numerous scientific and technical publications in collaboration with veterinary students, producers and national agricultural associations. He lives with his wife and two small children in the mountain region of northeast Portugal.
