Dryland Husbandry Ethnoveterinary Practices - Sudan
"In this monograph, an attempt is made towards recording and elucidating several aspects of the ethnoveterinary activities of pastoralists, mainly camelmen in North-eastern Sudan. The study was inspired by previous researches in the same area, during which we felt the tremendous wealth of information expressed by pastoralists on animal physiology, nutrition, diseases, and therapeutic and toxic plants. In addition, pastoralists in the area have indicated a set of constraints facing their mode of living and animal diseases ranked highly among these constraints. It was thus of interest to study the local efforts pertaining to disease control in the area, with emphasis on camels. It is hoped that this and similar studies will lay the basis for future developments regarding the provision of veterinary and health services to the pastoral community in the study area."
