The ostrich is a relatively new agricultural animal in many parts of the world, and even in South Africa it was domesticated only a little over a century ago. Recently however there has been a huge growth in interest in ostrich farming, and production of ostriches for low-fat meat and leather is now a reality in many parts of the world.

This book is the first comprehensive volume to review the world scientific literature on ostrich biology, production and health.

* Written by leading authors from South Africa, Europe, Israel and the USA
* Deals with the ostrich in farmed and natural environments
* Essential reading for those interested in avian and poultry science
