Psychrophilic anaerobic digestion of guinea pig manure in low-cost tubular digesters at high altitude
(ELSEVIEREstados Unidos, 2011-03-29)
Guinea pig is one of the most common livestock in rural communities of the Andes. The aim of this research was to study the anaerobic digestion of guinea pig manure in low-cost unheated tubular digesters at high altitude. ...
Chemical composition, digestible protein and energy values of some alternative feedstuffs for pigs in Brazil
(Animal Feed Science and Technology, 2019)
La nutrición es una función de los seres vivos, que incluye acciones como ingestión de los alimentos, masticación de los mismos, insalivación, deglución, digestión, absorción y excreción. Por lo que , resulta fundamental ...
Do changes in dietary chemistry during ontogeny affect digestive performance in adults of the herbivorous rodent Octodon degus?
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008-11)
We characterize the flexibility in digestive performance in degus (Octodon degus) an herbivorous rodent. We tested the hypothesis that dietary and physiological-digestive flexibility are correlated. Degus were fed with ...
In vitro versus in vivo protein digestibility techniques for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score) applied to chickpea fractions
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-11-01)
Seven different in vitro methods to determine the protein digestibility for chickpea proteins were considered and also the application of these methodologies for calculating PDCAAS (protein digestibility-corrected amino ...
Nutritive value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee- stored pollen in the stingless bee, Scaptotrigona postica Latr. (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Meliponini)
(Elsevier B.V., 2000-01-01)
In Meliponini bees, pollen is stored inside the hive. We compared the nutritional value and apparent digestibility of bee-collected and bee-stored pollen of Scaptotrigona postica. The results showed no differences in ...
Ontogeny of the digestive system and the profile of proteases in larvae of cachara (Pseudoplatystoma reticulatum Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) and its hybrid (Pseudoplatystoma corruscans × Pseudoplatystoma reticulatum)
The development of the digestive system and digestive proteases was studied in cachara (Pseudoplatystoma reticulatum) and its hybrid (P. reticulatum × Pseudoplatystoma corruscans) during the first 25 days after fertilization. ...
