Special Issue "Dietary Mycotoxin Exposure to Livestock and Poultry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
Interests: mycotoxins; dairy; nutrition; comparative nutrition; animal nutrition; international agri-culture; toxicology; food safety
Mycotoxin contamination of agricultural feedstuffs is a frequent occurrence in modern livestock and poultry operations around the world. Whether the discovery originates from a positive test at the feedmill or occurs as a result of a clinical outbreak, the ramifications of mycotoxin-contaminated feedstuffs have huge economic impacts for animal protein food production worldwide.
This Special Issue of Toxins invites articles that address the impacts of livestock and poultry exposure to dietary mycotoxin, particularly articles related to (a) novel or emerging associations between dietary exposures and disease states; (b) novel biomarkers or analytical techniques for assessment of mycotoxin exposure, metabolism, or clinical diagnosis; (c) the reduction of mycotoxicosis through dietary interventions; and (d) emerging mycotoxins and their impact on livestock and poultry.
As the focus of this Special Issue is on livestock and poultry, papers concerning mycology, contamination surveillance, human health, or other endpoints not directly related to agricultural livestock and poultry exposure or health outcomes are outside of its scope. Econometric research is welcome, provided the analysis specifically concerns the influence of livestock and poultry exposure to mycotoxins. Experimental work in other agricultural species is welcomed, including aquaculture and non-traditional livestock species around the world.
I look forward to reviewing original research and review articles which shed light on the myriad impacts of dietary mycotoxin exposure on livestock and poultry health and productivity around the world.
