This is a must-have concise and comprehensive review on human viruses. It is a powerful teaching tool for microbiology instructors coping with immense amounts of information to be covered in preparation for Microbiology classes. It is a valuable resource for both students and instructors of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. This college instructional aid is a concise yet comprehensible review of human viral diseases specifically designed for beginning microbiology instructors and their students. It presents pathogens initially with respect to their biological identity and as an alternative to their presentation in many college textbooks as pathogens of the human organ systems. In this text, after a disease is defined, it is followed by the description of its etiological agent, its signs and symptoms, its sequelae, diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment and preventive measures. Some aspects of the maintenance of viral cultures are presented. Historical references are cited while brief tabled summaries of diseases are offered before pathogens are under consideration. Ready-to-use chalkboard graphics are available for instructors to employ during microbiology lecture. The Author intends this to add an interactive component to microbiology lectures, reinforcing students' comprehension and retention of the topics being covered. The material is up-to-date in advances in the science of microbiology.
