Abstract
It is only in recent years that there has been an appreciation that the problems of wildlife and domestic animal husbandry are complementary and form an integral part of the overall problem of land use. To investigate the meat production potential of East African ruminants a standard form of body and carcase dissection analysis has been devised and is described in detail. It is hoped that a better knowledge of the physiological adaption to their environment of some of the wild species may help to indicate methods of improving animal husbandry in the dry tropics. The data obtained during the course of these investigations will also provide information as to the meat production potential of the individual species. The lines of thought engendered by these investigations are discussed.
