Poultry Lighting: The Theory & Practice

This is the first book to be dedicated to the lighting of poultry, and, as the title suggests, is written in two sections.

The first section is fully referenced and covers the science that underpins the lighting of poultry, with chapters describing the physics of light, the physiology and mechanisms by which poultry react to light, and the responses of all classes of poultry to conventional and unconventional photoperiods, light intensity, light colour, light source and the pathological consequences of extremes of illumination.
