Summary This book gives a comprehensive account of the methodologies for measuring methane from in vitro fermentation systems, and from stall-fed and grazing animals. The chapters have been contributed by experts in the field and methods and protocols have been presented in simple format for direct practical use. A variety of techniques for measuring methane emissions ranging from radio and stable isotopic methods, respiration chambers to the tunnel method and sulphur hexafluoride tracer technique, which can be used with animals in the field have been covered. In vitro fermentation systems which provi
