ANIMAL
SCIENCE




Animal science is described as "studying the biology of animals that
are under the control of mankind". Historically, the animals studied
were farm animals, including livestock and horses, but courses available
now look at a far broader area to include companion animals, for example
dogs, cats and exotic species. At the University of Reading, for example,
the study of animal science is concerned with the scientific understanding
of how animals work: from the physiology and biochemistry of tissues and
major organ systems down to the structure and function of biomolecules and
cells; particular emphasis is given to the study of animal growth,
reproduction, nutrition and lactation of farm and companion animals and how
these processes may be optimised to improve animal productivity, health and
welfare. Courses in support areas, such as genetics, soils, agricultural
economics and marketing, legal aspects and the environment also are offered.
Degrees in Animal Science are offered at a number of universities.

DOMESTICATION




Domestication or taming is the process whereby a population of animals
or plants, through a process of selection, becomes accustomed to human
provision and control. A defining characteristic of domestication is
artificial selection by humans. Humans have brought these populations
under their control and care for a wide range of reasons: to produce
food or valuable commodities (such as wool, cotton, or silk), for help
with various types of work (such as transportation, protection, and
warfare), scientific research, or simply to enjoy as companions or
ornaments.

DOMESTICATION
OF
ANIMALS




According to evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond, animal species
must meet six criteria in order to be considered for domestication:


1.Flexible diet

2.Reasonably fast growth rate

3.Ability to be bred in captivity

4.Pleasant disposition

5.Temperament which makes it unlikely to panic

6.Modifiable social hierarchy
