We performed a set of heifer feeding trials to investigate the effect of heat and humidity stresses on the rumen bacterial molecular diversity of Holstein heifers (Tajima K, Nonaka I, Higuchi K, Takusari N, Kurihara M, Takenaka A, et al. Anaerobe 2007;13:57-64). To further characterize the response of the microbial community to the physiological changes caused by the stresses, we evaluated changes in the ruminal bacterial community composition in the same trials by applying an RNA-based method… CONTINUE READING
