Riassunto: This comprehensive treatise offers an in-depth discussion of natural toxicants in plants, emphasizing their effects as defenses against herbivory. Coevolution of plants and her-bivores are covered with a detailed treatment of toxicant metabolism and systemic effects in mammalian tissues. Con-sideration of the economic importance of plant toxins, modi-fication by plant breeding, management of toxico-sis, and toxicant problems in various geographic areas are in-cluded. Each volume offers an extensive description of chemistry, biosynthesis, analysis, distribution in plants, metabolism in mam-mals and insects, and practical problems in humans and livestock.
About the Author: "Peter R. Cheeke" is Professor Emeritus of Animal Nutrition at Oregon State University. He grew up on a small family farm in British Columbia, Canada. He graduated from the University of British Columbia with a BS in Agriculture (19 G3) and MS in animal nutrition (1965). He completed his academic training at Oregon State University with his PhD in animal nutrition (1968), under the supervision of Dr. James Oldfield. His PhD research was on interrelationships between vitamin E and selenium. Since 1969, he has been assistant associate and full professor at Oregon State University, with a teaching and research program in animal nutrition. He retired from OSU in 2000. One of his major research interests has been the study of natural toxicants in feeds and poisonous plants, particularly alkaloids in poisonous pasture weeds and toxins in potential new feedstuffs. He has written a book "Natural Toxicants in Feeds, Forages, and Poisonous Plants" (Prentice-Hall, 1998). He has worked with a variety of animal species, including ruminants, rabbits and poultry. He was a founder of the Oregon State University Rabbit Research Center, and is coauthor of "Rabbit Production" (Prentice Hall, 2000) and "Rabbit Feeding and Nutrition," (Academic Press, 1987). He was honored by the western section of American Society of Animal Science with the Young Scientist Award in 1979 and the Distinguished Service Award in 2001. In 1990, he was named Distinguished Professor of Agriculture at Oregon State University. He has served on the editorial boards of the journal of Animal Science, and Animal Feed Science and Technology. He has operated a small farm near Corvallis, Oregon--raising various types of livestock andpoultry, including a small herd of beef cattle. He and his wife Karen now live on a small farm, with an equine facility for breeding and therapeutic riding instruction. He has had a life-long interest in the interrelationships of plants and animals, and in the survival and strengthening of the family farm.
