9780813828121: Infectious Diseases of Wild Birds

Free-living birds encounter multiple health hazards brought on by viruses, bacteria, and fungi, some which in turn can significantly impact other animal populations and human health. Newly emerging diseases and new zoonotic forms of older diseases have brought increased global attention to the health of wild bird populations. Recognition and management of these diseases is a high priority for all those involved with wildlife.

Infectious Diseases of Wild Birds provides biologists, wildlife managers, wildlife and veterinary health professionals and students with the most comprehensive reference on infectious viral, bacterial and fungal diseases affecting wild birds. Bringing together contributions from an international team of experts, the book offers the most complete information on these diseases, their history, causative agents, significance and population impact. Focusing on more than just treatment, special emphasis is given to disease processes, recognition and epidemiology.

Review:

“In this age of multiple emerging diseases, the presentations in this book are helpful and even necessary for avian practitioners to become informed about these diseases.... If you are looking for an excellent, 1-volume reference about the many infectious diseases seen in wild birds, with good discussions of the implications for wildlife populations and implications for domestic animal and human health, I would highly recommend this book.... This is a very readable and excellent reference volume for all veterinarians working with wildlife."   Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery

“Each chapter is an excellent first point of reference and portal to the literature on its subject. A number of chapters arguably are the definitive review of relatively well known diseases of wild birds, or of others that have emerged recently. Ensure that it is in your institutional library...It is a comprehensive and authoritative source of one-stop shopping for information in the field, and it should be for years to come.”  Journal of Wildlife Diseases

“Desperately needed text...the book provides excellent detail in all areas. Other excellent resources concerning diseases of freeranging avian species are available, but none provide as much comprehensive, detailed information about the broad range of infectious diseases affecting all types of wild birds. It is an excellent overview of what is currently known about the subject. It will prove to be an invaluable reference for veterinary pathologists who have a general interest in diseases of wild birds. In general, anyone concerned with the diseases of free-ranging avian species should have this text at hand."  Veterinary Pathology

“The book is well organized, well referenced and thorough in its coverage of the subject matter. There are quite a few informative charts, graphs and tables as well as photographs of gross and microscopic lesions and clinical signs. I found a number of unique chapters particularly fascinating.... Indispensable to anyone in the field of wildlife management, conservation and wildlife biology and diseases.” Exotic DVM Magazine

"Any pathologists working with diseases of free-ranging birds will find it useful...Editors have included very detailed index. All the chapters provide excellent and valuable information."
Quarterly Review of Biology
