In recent years there have been substantial developments in the methodologies available for the non-destructive and non-invasive measurement of body composition in animals. By bringing together in a single volume a mix of traditional and well-established analytical methods with more modern techniques, Body Composition Analysis of Animals : A Handbook of Non-Destructive Methods provides a theoretical overview of different methodologies combined with practical advice on the use of these techniques. Methods covered include the use of .destructive methods of analysis, body condition indices, isotope and gas dilution methods, total body electrical conductivity, bioimpedance analysis, ultrasound scanning and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Aimed at active research workers from undergraduate level upwards, this book will be of particular interest to those working in the fields of animal ecology, conservation biology, animal nutrition and physiology.
    • Morphological indicators of body condition: useful or wishful thinking?
    • Standard methods for destructive body composition analysis
    • The isotope dilution method for the evaluation of body composition
    • Gas dilution methods: elimination and absorption of lipid-soluble gases
    • The use of total body electrical conductivity (TOBEC) to determine body composition in vertebrates
    • The use of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) for estimation of body composition
    • The assessment of body composition and other parameters by ultrasound scanning
    • The use of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for the measurement of body composition.

JOHN R. Speakman is Professor of Zoology at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and Head of the Division of Appetite and Energy Balance at the Rowett Institute, also in Aberdeen. He is a leading figure in the field of animal energetics. His research interests include the causes and consequences of variation in energy expenditure of a wide range of animals from bats and other small mammals to dolphins and turtles. In 1996 he received the Zoological Society of London Scientific Medal for his work on energetics and in 2000 was a Royal Society Leverhulme Senior Research Fellow.
