Animal and Plant Productivity theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The theme on Animal and Plant Productivity Science focuses on paths to improvement of animal and plant production systems at all levels from genomes to landscapes. This volume traces efforts to improve agricultural productivity and the increasingly important metrics of resilience and sustainability. It deals with the essential aspects and a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as Productivity, Efficiency And Resilience of Crop And Livestock Production; Sustainable Animal Production; Animal Production Systems in the Tropics; Physiology of Growth and Reproduction in Livestock; Evolution of Livestock Improvement; Monogastric Nutrition; Rumen Microbiology; Meat Science; Agroecology: environmentally sound and socially just alternatives to the industrial; farming model; Range and pasture productivity; Sustainable Crop Production: Physiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Crop Improvement("The Gene Revolution"); Ecological Economics; Agricultural Economics; Integrated Resource Management And Planning. This volume is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.

Robert Hudson (PhD, University of British Columbia 1973) is Professor of Sustainability Science and Associate Dean (International) with the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Alberta. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Open Journal of Conservation Biology, Associate Editor of the Journal of Wildlife Management and member of the Editorial Board of several international journals. His research is on bioenergetics, nutrition, behavior and management of bison, elk, deer, caribou and other hoofed mammals. He also studies community-based management and dynamics of wildlife and rangeland systems and has been involved in the development of codes of humane practice for bison and deer. Dr Hudson has supported graduate student projects in the Canadian Arctic, Cameroon, Kenya and Malaysia and has collaborated on research in China and Korea. Working with others, he has several hundred publications including books on bioenergetics, wildlife production and sustainable use
