This book provides the scientific community working withfree-living wildlife a comprehensive resource on the diseasesaffecting these animals in Europe. However, it is also auseful resource for wildlife professionals globally as much of theinformation is applicable regardless of location." (Doody's, 2 August 2013) I have already learned lots while reviewing it, and Iwould thoroughly recommend this to be on the bookshelf of any vetor biologist with a significant interest in wildlife, conservationor zoological medicine. In addition, it is also available inelectronic format for approximately two-thirds the price,representing not only good value, but also an ideal format fortaking into the field where it would be extremelyuseful. (Veterinary Record, 23 March 2013) Dolores Gavier-Widen, J. Paul Duff & Anna Meredithedit INFECTIOUS DISEASES OF WILD MAMMALS AND BIRDS IN EUROPE(9781405199056, $169.99), a key title covering the diagnosis andtreatment of diseases in European wildlife, and is a recommendedpick for any specialty collection strong in veterinary experiencesaround the world. From risks to human health and livestock and petsto how diseases spread in the wild, wildlife vaccination anddisease surveillance techniques, and classification, this iswritten by clinicians and pathologists from across Europe andassembles a powerful technical compendium of details for vets,conservation biologists, and wildlife researchersalike.
