The genetics of the horse.

Book cover for The genetics of the horse.


In its 18 chapters, this multiauthor book covers all major aspects of the genetics of horses from systematics and phylogeny to molecular genetics, and comprehensively surveys the literature of the past few decades. It is addressed to a wide readership from research workers to those concerned with more practical aspects of the breeding and keeping of horses. The book has both a glossary of terms and a subject index.
