  • Edwards, Joan E.; McEwan, Neil R.; Wallace, R. John (2008-06-01)
    Aims: The recent EU ban of growth-promoting antibiotics in animal production was based on fears concerning antibiotic resistance being transmitted to human pathogens. This paper explores the adaptation mechanism of a common ...
  • Kingston-Smith, Alison H.; Sanderson, Ruth; Edwards, Joan E.; Jones, S. (2009-06-04)
    The primary objective of the conference is to promote understanding of the complex microbial ecosystems present in the digestive tract of mammals and other higher animals and their interaction with their hosts. It is a ...

    The tanniferous forage Lotus corniculatus generally has a beneficial effect on ruminal fermentation, protecting dietary protein from excessive degradation. In L. corniculatus, condensed tannins (CTs) are normally concentrated ...
  • Huws, Sharon A.; Kim, Eun J.; Edwards, Joan E.; Kingston-Smith, Alison H. (Blackwell Publishing, 2008-12-09)
    Microbial colonization is central to ruminal degradation of dietary material yet little is known about the dynamics of this process. The aim of this study was to characterize the initial stages of bacterial colonization ...

  • Cheng, Yan Fen; Edwards, Joan E.; Allison, Gordon G.; Zhu, Wei-Yun; Theodorou, Michael K. (2009-10)
    Consecutive batch cultures (CBC), involving nine serial transfers at 3, 5 and 7 d intervals (21, 45 and 63 d, respectively) were established to enrich for plant fibre degrading co-cultures of anaerobic fungi and methanogens ...
  • Abecia, Leticia; Fondevila, Manuel; Balcells, Joaquim; Edwards, Joan E.; Newbold, C. James; McEwan, Neil R. (2007-07)
    The effect feeding antibiotics has on the bacterial population of the rabbit caecum was investigated. No changes in total volatile fatty acid production or total bacterial counts were observed compared with nonantibiotic ...
  • Jimenez, Hugo R.; McEwan, Neil R.; Theodorou, Michael K.; Edwards, Joan E.; Kingston-Smith, Alison H.; Sanderson, Ruth (2009-06-04)

  • Kingston-Smith, A. H.; Davies, T. E.; Edwards, Joan E.; Theodorou, M. K. (2008)
    Plant cell death occurring as a result of adverse environmental conditions is known to limit crop production. It is less well recognized that plant cell death processes can also contribute to the poor environmental footprint ...
  • Balcells, Joaquim; McEwan, Neil R.; Abecia, Leticia; Fondevila, Manuel; Newbold, C. James; Edwards, Joan E. (2008-12-11)
    The diversity of bacteria present in the caecum of the rabbit was investigated. Partial bacterial 16S rRNA genes from a digested sample collected from the caecum of an adult rabbit were amplified by PCR. Sequence analysis ...

  • Dagar, Sumit S.; Kumar, Sanjay; Griffith, Gareth W.; Edwards, Joan E.; Callaghan, Tony M.; Singh, Rameshwar; Nagpal, Ashok K.; Puniya, Anil K. (2015)
    Two cultures of anaerobic fungi were isolated from the forestomach of an Indian camel (Camelus dromedarius). Phylogenetic analysis using both the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large-subunit (LSU) regions of the ...
  • Huws, Sharon A.; Abberton, Michael T.; Kim, Eun J.; Edwards, Joan E.; Kingston-Smith, Alison H. (2011-06-06)
    Ruminant farming is an important component of the human food chain. Ruminants can use offtake from land unsuitable for cereal crop cultivation via interaction with the diverse microbial population in their rumens. The rumen ...
  • Newbold, C. James; Scollan, Nigel D.; Edwards, Joan E.; Kingston-Smith, Alison H.; Kim, Eun J. (2010-03-25)
    This conference provides an opportunity to discuss recent developments in the understanding of how microorganisms can interact positively with plants in agricultural and natural ecosystems, how these interactions impact ...
