International Symposium on Herbal Products in Anima Health and Nutrition (HERBAN 2011)

Being aware of the high and increasing significance of herbal products, especially phytochemicals for the benefit of animals, the scientific and organizing committee kindly invites you to participate actively in the HERBAN 2011 symposium to discuss the most recent scientific results.

The last two decades have seen a substantial increase in the use of herbs and herbal products in animal health care and nutrition. Reasons for this trend are on one side the growing interest in ‘soft’ treatments of animals combined with re-discovery of ethno-veterinary knowledge. On the other side, the sometimes excessive use of in-feed antibiotics, growth hormones and some synthetic drugs has raised public awareness and changed consumer’s preferences to more natural approaches. In Europe, this resulted inter alias in a ban of antibiotic growth promoters and stronger regulations concerning feed additives and veterinary medicinal products. Essential oils, but also by-products of the herbal industry are widely used as substitutes. In Latin America, (South) Africa and especially Asia, an obvious increase in research activities in ethno-veterinary medicine can be observed in recent years.

Scientific progress in these areas has been documented partly in previous international conferences as e.g. WOCMAP, GA Annual Congresses and others, as well as specific meetings at regional or national level. Continuing this scientific exchange HERBAN will deal with a number of relevant topics presented by most reputed scientists in the field. In addition, the conference is open for your highly relevant contributions, to be presented either orally or as poster.

Topic: conferences, chemistry Audience: students, professional chemists, professors, industrial chemists, post graduate students, women chemists, decision makers
