The first edition was highly successful and a respected reference book for many years. This extensive revision, by 30 contributing authors, details the latest advances in the recognition and detection of parasitic diseases in free-ranging and captive mammals, and addresses wildlife management and public health considerations. It also discusses possible emerging diseases and provides an important expanded section on protozoan parasites. Illustrations include photographs, photomicrographs and drawings, plus over 100 tables.
This book is fully referenced and will be useful to students and professionals in parasitology, and to a wide range of wildlife biologists, veterinarians and public health professionals.
