Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

By 2050, the global demand for animal protein will double and livestock production will increase its contribution to overall anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, estimates of greenhouse gases from both regional and global livestock production and associated mitigation effectiveness show large uncertainties. This volume will attempt to improve emission predictions through study data from monitoring and modeling of greenhouse gases and elucidate how advanced biotechnologies, improved genetics, animal nutrition, and comprehensive waste management can be used to further reduce the carbon footprint of livestock production.

Manuscripts of original research should advisedly address one of the following cogent and urgent topics: (1) the reduction of uncertainties concerning greenhouse gas emissions by livestock production systems (including both emissions and sequestration), (2) impacts of climate change on livestock systems, (3) development and use of ‘breakthrough’ techniques and technologies for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock production, (4) the adaptation of livestock to climate change, and (5) advanced manure treatment to reduce emissions and generate utilities.
