Tired of trying to relate pea plants, fruit flies and mice to practical horse breeding? Textbooks of general genetics rarely mention horses. Consequently our knowledge of horse genes lags well behind that of other domestic animals.Horse Genetics is one of the first books to provide a comprehensive overview of genetic principles using horses as the primary examples. The author, who has both practical and academic experience in the subject, provides jargon-free facts and ideas in the field of genetics as it relates to horses. Well-documented topics such as coat color are covered as well as parentage testing, medical genetics and gene mapping. This book presents a unique and up-to-date review of horse genetics with a clear vision for future research. Sure to become a classic, Horse Genetics is a valuable addition to the field of equine science and every modern equine practitioner's library.
