Infectious and Parasitic Diseases of Livestock (2 volume set), Hardback Book

Infectious and Parasitic Diseases of Livestock (2 volume set) Hardback


Translated from the French original published by LavoisierIn this new English language edition all the chapters have been updated with new references and additional chapters written by authors in the UK, USA, Australia and Canada. In recent years infectious livestock diseases have swept across many countries, often with dramatic consequences for animal and public health. With climatic changes modifying the distribution of vector-borne diseases, emerging novel pathogens can spread rapidly in new areas, at the same time as resistance spreads in places where they are established. This calls for new approaches for the control of parasitic diseases. This book presents in detail over 130 viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic diseases of large livestock species from all over the world, accompanied by very valuable and informative illustrations and photographs. Particular attention is also paid to the role of wildlife in their epidemiology, stressing the potential zoonotic characteristics of diseases where applicable and their effects on humans.
