About the book

This book aims to educate the students of biological sciences, including veterinary, medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and biotechnological disciplines in mammalian endocrinology. We hope to cover the anatomy of the endocrine system with some details of the major endocrine glands and to provide information on the functions of various endocrine organs. We also hope to cover reproductive physiology, lactation physiology and explain the physiology of growth and meat production as well as report on stress physiology. Economic aspects of livestock production will be covered like fertility, infertility, milk, and meat production. Various aspects of stress will be highlighted like its effects on animal health and productivity, factory farming, pathways of the stress response, biological endpoints of stress, molecular and clinical indicators of stress, stress management, animals ethics, rights, and welfare. Our goal is to make a useful book for readers seeking information on developing entrepreneurship across the livestock-based food value chain.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
