Below are the first 10 and last 10 pages of uncorrected machine-read text (when available) of this chapter, followed by the top 30 algorithmically extracted key phrases from the chapter as a whole.
Intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text on the opening pages of each chapter. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

Parameter Names for Descnbing Protein Metabolism Parameter names for the fractions, or pools, and transfer coefficients that are compatible with computer use are suggested. A maximum of six characters is al- lowecl in Fortran programming. Only letters and num- bers are allowed, and a letter must be the first character; other characters in common use, such as parentheses and subscripts, are not acceptable. Terms for fractions, or pools, are limited to three characters and generally have units of mass/unit of time, such as grams or kilo- grams/clay. Terms for transfer coefficients are limited to six characters with an implied slash separating the final fraction from the initial fraction and have proportional units. Fractions making up maintenance and produc- tion requirements are explicitly described as being in ei- ther units of absorbed or net protein. The word ah- sorbed means the protein absorber] from the digestive tract. Absorbed is generally synonomous with metabo- lizable, but metabolizable was not used because its meaning relative to protein metabolism differs from that relative to energy metabolism. Net means the ac- tual protein in that fraction. The word crude means N x 6.25. Names are intended to be consistent with the energy terms used in Nutritional Energetics of Domestic Animals and Glossary of Energy Terms (National Re- search Council [NRC], 1981~. Many of the names cur- rently used in either the Agricultural Research Council (ARC, 1980) or Proteines Digestibles dans I'Intestin (PDI) (Verite et al., 1979) systems do not meet these re- quirements.
