This is a book written by one of the Practitioners in the field of Animal Breeding in Africa.The author delved into the History of Animal genetics, a documentary of African animal genetic resources, Breeding, selection, mating systems and some elements of statistics to assist lecturers, graduate and postgraduate students in this core area to enable them understand and apply genetic principles to animal improvement in Africa.It is about the application of breeding methods to achieve sustainable use of indigenous resources for the benefit of all and the future generation of the black race. The importance of agricultural research and the application of genetic principle to crop and livestock production in the West African sub-region cannot be overemphasized, the production of this book is intended to address this issue. Since existing animal husbandry books deal mainly with the subject of production in general or as applied to the temperate zones, a publication such as this which underlines the specific animal breeding and genetic improvement problems of the tropical areas is a welcomed proposition.
