Die fur Landwirte ausserst nachteiligen Ereignisse der BSE-Krise legen die Vermutung nahe, dass sich im traditionell Erzeuger-dominierten europaischen Agrarnetzwerk ein Wandel vollzogen hat. Haben verbraucherschutz- und handelspolitische Entwicklungen zu einer Schwerpunktverlagerung in der gemeinsamen Agrarpolitik der Europaischen Union gefuhrt? Die Arbeit zeigt in einer netzwerkanalytischen Betrachtung die vielfaltigen Bestimmungsfaktoren deutscher und britischer BSE-Politik der Jahre 1988 bis 1996 auf. Fragen nach der Bedeutung des Rahmenakteurs -Europaische Union- und der Handlungsfreiheit nationaler Regierungen im vermeintlich vollstandig vergemeinschafteten Politikfeld Agrarpolitik stehen dabei im Mittelpunkt."

R786 Discovery Miles 7 860 Out of stock

The one-humped camel, or dromedary, is one of the world's hardiest domesticated animals. A vital source of transport, meat, milk and income for pastoralists in the Sahel, East Africa, the Middle East and South Asia, the camel can carry heavy loads for days in some of the world's most hostile conditions. But even camels fall ill. A Field Manual of Camel Diseases is the first practical guide to camel diseases designed for use in low technology environments. The manual details some 80 major camel diseases and conditions, ranging from abortions to wry neck syndrome. For each disease, the authors give the disease signs, its causes, and simple prevention and treatment methods. Both scientific and tried and tested traditional treatments are presented, thus enabling the veterinarian or livestock practitioner to make the most appropriate choice in the prevailing circumstances. A section on procedures explains how to examine a camel, take samples for laboratory analysis and apply various types of medicines.

R1,654 Discovery Miles 16 540 Out of stock

Johne's Disease is a chronic, progressive intestinal disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) that affects primarily ruminant animals. In recent decades there has been growing concern over the lack of effective control of this disease and questions have arisen regarding the possibility that Map infection could be a cause of some cases of Crohn's disease in humans. This report presents a broad outline of the steps that should be taken to control Johne's disease, reduce the spread of Map, and minimize effects of the disease in animals. The report also describes the weaknesses of our current research agenda and provides recommendations for a new research strategy to resolve the question of whether there is a link between Johne's and Crohn's diseases.
