This book is a valuable guide for anyone involved in the management and care of camels. All aspects of the camel are covered, starting with its origins, domestication, worldwide distribution and population. Chapters on different types and breeds, production systems, anatomy and physiology, reproduction, management, nutrition and health are followed by its various uses, in particular transport and milk production. The text is presented in a clear and easy-to-read style, and is illustrated throughout with many diagrams and photographs. The author draws on the knowledge of camel owners, the extensive scientific literature, and his own personals and practical field expertise of camel husbandry. It is hoped this book will encourage more people to recognise not only the essential role of the camel in the life of those living in some of the harshest environments in the world, but also its potential, through management and breeding for improving their lifestyle and developing its uses further.
