A Handbook of Non-Destructive Methods
by John R. Speakman
Edition: 1st., 2008
Bringing together a mix of traditional and well established analytical methods with more modern techniques, Body Composition Analysis of Animals 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, bio-impedance analysis, ultrasound scanning, and dual energy x-ray absorptiometry.
