Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis book fills the gap between books that are designed to be practical, rather than scientific, and those that are aimed at researchers and veterinary clinicians which are too expensive for students to buy. The combination of an author who has been teaching equine exercise physiology for many years and an author who is internationally renowned for his equine exercise physiology research ensures that the book is written at exactly the right level and is academically rigorous throughout.
