  • Direct-Fed Microbials and Prebiotics for Animalsby Todd R. Callaway; Steven C. Ricke

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    The practice of supplementing direct fed microbial and prebiotic additives to domestic animals during growth is becoming more widespread in food animal production. Beneficial effects particularly in cattle, pigs and poultry, including improved general health, foodborne pathogen reduction, more efficient food utilization, faster growth rate and increased... more...

  • Methods in Gut Microbial Ecology for Ruminantsby Harinder P.S. Makkar; Christopher S. McSweeney

    Springer 2006; US$ 199.00

    Presents an account of the methodologies and protocols for conventional and modern molecular techniques that are in use for studying the gut microbial ecology of ruminants. This work describes the techniques and procedures that are adaptable to other gastrointestinal ecosystems and the microbiology of anaerobic environments in general. more...

  • Gut Flora, Nutrition, Immunity and Healthby Roy Fuller; Gabriela Peridigon

    Wiley 2008; US$ 273.99

    Some foods, as well as contributing essential nutrients to the body, also contain additional components that improve disease resistance and general health status over and above that induced by ingestion of conventional foods. The so-called functional foods, and prebiotics and probiotics exemplify the relationship that exists between nutrition, the... more...

  • GI Microbiota and Regulation of the Immune Systemby Gary B. Huffnagle; Mairi Noverr

    Springer 2009; US$ 289.00

    Offers an overview of the knowledge of gastrointestinal immunology and the commensal microbiology of the gut. This book includes chapters dedicated to methodologies used to investigate the microbiota and host: molecular analysis of microbial diversity and gnotobiotic research. more...

  • The Enteric Microbiotaby Francisco Guarner

    Biota Publishing 2011; US$ 40.00

    The human gut is the natural habitat for a diverse and dynamic microbial ecosystem having an important impact on health and disease. Bacteria have lived in and on animal hosts since multicellular life evolved about 1 billion years ago. Hosts provide habitat and nutrition to the microbial communities and derive many benefits from their guests that contribute... more...

  • Role of the Gut Flora in Toxicity and Cancerby I Rowland

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Role of the Gut Flora in Toxicity and Cancer examines the relationship between the gut microflora and its host. The aim is to provide a comprehensive view of the contribution of the gut flora to foreign compound metabolism in man and laboratory animals. The object has been to relate this bacterial metabolism to toxic events occurring in mammals and... more...

  • Handbook of Probiotics and Prebioticsby Yuan Kun Lee; Seppo Salminen

    Wiley 2009; US$ 179.00

    Since the publication of the first edition in 1999, the science of probiotics and prebiotics has matured greatly and garnered more interest.

  • Probiotics in Food Safety and Human Healthby Ipek Goktepe; Vijay K. Juneja; Mohamed Ahmedna

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 220.00

    The discovery of new and previously unknown organisms that cause foodborne illness makes it essential for scientists, regulators, and those in the food industry to reconsider their traditional approaches to food preservation. A single source reference that can provide the latest practical information on how to deal with the range of probiotic health... more...

  • Handbook of Prebioticsby Glenn R. Gibson; Marcel Roberfroid

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 189.95

    In order to achieve optimal digestion, absorption, and nutritional health, we must have appropriate populations of positive microflora. Prebiotics are functional foods that improve health by fortifying indigenous probiotics within the gut. This fast-growing area of nutrition and microbiology is rapidly amassing data and answering many questions about... more...
