Review:

"...a very worthwhile addition to any biological sciences library...would not be out of place in the office of the manager and/or technical director of a meat plant. ...We strongly recommend it to anyone with more than a passing interest in meat, as a primary source." --MEAT SCIENCE, August 2005

"...this is the first major reference work on all aspects of meat sciences. The 225 contributors represent a wide range of companies and academic institutions...The articles have excellent tables and illustrations; color plates appear in separate sections in each volume...Recommended. Libraries supporting programs in food science, veterinary science, or agriculture." --CHOICE, March 2005

"This encyclopedia would be desirable in many collections. Obviously it would be useful as a reference for intuitions that deal with meat science, agriculture, culinary arts, food science or nutrition. However, it might also have a place in more general collections, because much of its content will not overlap any other reference books. The articles are written well enough that they could be used by a college student in any field of study." --E-STREAMS, March 2005

"...fills the gap between simplistic introductory material and more specialized works. In over 200 articles, mostly of 3000-4000 words each, the reader receives a solid overview of a topic...there are timely and cutting edge topics including carcass traceability, biopreservation, and automation in the meat industry...There are also some very interesting articles on more topics further afield, including meat animals: origin and domestication, religious slaughter, and vegetarianism...This encyclopedia would be desirable in many collections...The articles are written well enough that they could be used by a college student in any field of study." --E-STREAMS, March 2005

"This encyclopedia, a 3 volume set, covers many topics within the field of meat science. It is intended for use by students, researchers and professionals, working in food science, veterinary science, agriculture engineering and livestock management." --Food Science and Technology Abstracts, 2004

About the Author:

Carrick Devine, commenced his career with the New Zealand Oceanographic Institute measuring ocean currents and salinity patterns in Antarctica followed by an MSc at Canterbury University on the ecology of a shrimp in a sandy beach. At the University of Otago he gained a PhD on the ultrastructure, physiology and pharmacology of smooth muscle and its innervation followed by a Post Doctoral fellowship at the Presbyterian-University of Pennsylvania Medical Center on smooth muscle.

After joining Meat Industry Research Institute of New Zealand (MIRINZ) in 1973, Dr Devine worked on optimising electrical stimulation to make meat tender - a process in all New Zealand lamb, beef and venison processing plants. Subsequent research showed further tenderisation, not only required the best electrical stimulation parameters, but also holding at optimum temperatures throughout critical parts of processing. Animal pre-slaughter stress often toughens meat so stress reduction procedures were developed. Stress amelioration was shown to also occur by conditioning animals to various stressors.

Neurophysiological studies showed pre-slaughter head only electrical stunning to be humane and thus enabled the harmonisation of halal and western slaughter procedures. Dr Devine later joined Plant and Food Research and with AgResearch, successfully developed near infrared spectroscopy techniques (NIR) to measure meat tenderness on-line.

Dr Devine obtained a DSc based on his research and is a fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand, and New Zealand Institute of Chemistry and gained an ONZM for work on meat. He is currently an editor of the Encyclopedia of Meat Sciences.
