Art and Science in Breeding: Creating Better Chickens by Margaret Derry

By Margaret Derry

Chickens at the moment are the main scientifically engineered of farm animals. How have the tools utilized by geneticists differed from these hired by way of family breeders through the years? Art and technological know-how in Breeding details the connection among farm practices and agricultural genetics in chook breeding from 1850 to 1960.

Margaret E. Derry lines the heritage and association of fowl breeding in North the United States, from craft ways and breeding as an ‘art,’ to the conflicts that had emerged among conventional and clinical equipment via the Forties. Derry assesses hyperlinks among the 'scientific' revolution of bird farming and the improvement of company breeding as a latest, foreign undefined. utilizing chicken as a case learn for the broader narrative of agricultural genetics, Art and technological know-how in Breeding adds enormous wisdom to a quickly turning out to be box of inquiry.
