Proceedings of a symposium jointly organized by the IAEA and FAO, Vienna, 15–19 April 1991. The symposium reviewed advances in nutrition and reproduction of ruminant and other herbivorous animals, as well as in new approaches to disease diagnosis and control. Consideration was given to isotope and related techniques currently employed in research, but more importantly to the application of research findings in improving the productivity of livestock reared in tropical and subtropical developing countries, e.g. of ruminant animals whose diets mainly consist of poor quality roughages. Also addressed were advances in the development of highly sensitive radioimmunoassay methods for measuring the concentrations of reproductive and other hormones. In addition, emphasis was given to developments in the use of enzyme linked immunosorbent assays, not only for diagnosis of diseases of major relevance to developing countries, but also for their applicability in monitoring the effectiveness of large scale vaccination programmes and conducting epidemiological surveys. Contents: Animal nutrition; Animal reproduction; Animal health.
