Abstract

Horses are monogastrics and more sensitive to mycotoxins because of their limited detoxication capability in the gastrointestinal tract. This chapter describes the toxicity of some commonly occurring mycotoxins, such as aflatoxins, fumonisins, slaframine, trichothecenes, and zearalenone, in equine...
