The fourth, fifth and sixth chapters discuss experimental data on the in vitro fermentation profiles and degradability parameters of Solanum lycocarpum fractions used solely as a roughage or an additive to ruminant diets. This book will be especially interesting for researchers involved in sustainable animal production and ruminant research. Methane production is also evaluated in some experiments presented. Special thanks to Dr. The third chapter evaluates the chemical composition of Solanum lycocarpum in different fractions. This book is based on a PhD study conducted at Newcastle University. The introductory chapters describe how low quality forages and secondary metabolites affect ruminal fermentation, debates environmental issues related to intensive livestock production and how wild shrubs can help smallholder farmers to raise livestock more sustainably. Abdul Chaudhry from Newcastle University for his input in this work and to Capes (Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support of Graduate Education) for funding my PhD studies.

Alessandra Trindade said An interesting perspective with regards to sustainable animal agriculture. The book is nicely separated into distinct chapters which deals with plant biochemistry, rumen fermentation and a general discussion about plant secondary metabolites and its possible utilization as livestock feed additive to switch the rumen fermentation profile.The book also discuss the possibilities and necessity of alternative plant forages when arid landscapes are concerned. One practical criticism about the book is that it has only in vitro trials and not an actual animal trial. This could change the entire story when it comes to rum
