This report analyzes the effects of exposure to inorganic elements in animals, sets maximum tolerable levels of dietary minerals in feed, and identifies elements that pose potential human health concerns. Arranged alphabetically by mineral, the 31 chapters summarize the sources and uses of each mineral, biochemical roles for health, difficulties in methods of analysis, metabolism in the body, and toxicosis in primarily domestic animals and fish. Originally published in 1980, the second edition incorporates recent literature, considers a greater breadth of animal species, and adds closing chapters on acid- base balance, nitrates, and water quality.
