Microbiology is one of the core subjects for veterinary students,and since its first publication in 2002, Veterinary Microbiologyand Microbial Disease has become an essential text for students ofveterinary medicine. Fully revised and expanded, this new editionupdates the subject for pre-clinical and clinical veterinarystudents in a comprehensive manner. Individual sections deal withbacteriology, mycology and virology. Written by an academic teamwith many years of teaching experience, the book provides concisedescriptions of groups of microorganisms and the diseases whichthey cause. Microbial pathogens are discussed in separate chapterswhich provide information on the more important features of eachmicroorganism and its role in the pathogenesis of diseases ofanimals. The international and public health significance of thesepathogens are reviewed comprehensively. The final section isconcerned with the host and is organized according to the bodysystem affected. Tables, boxes and flow diagrams provide information in an easilyassimilated format. This edition contains new chapters on moleculardiagnostics and on infectious conditions of the skin,cardiovascular system, urinary tract and musculoskeletal system.Many new colour diagrams are incorporated into this edition andeach chapter has been updated. Key features of this edition: Twelve new chapters included Numerous new illustrations Each chapter has been updated Completely re-designed in full colour Fulfils the needs of veterinary students and academics inveterinary microbiology Companion website with figures from the book as Powerpoints forviewing or downloading by chapter: ahref="http://www.wiley.com/go/quinn/veterinarymicrobiology"www.wiley.com/go/quinn/veterinarymicrobiology/a Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease remainsindispensable for all those studying and teaching this essentialcomponent of the veterinary curriculum.

Veterinary Microbiology, Third Edition is a comprehensivereference on the bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogenic agentsthat cause animal disease. Now in full color with improved imagesthroughout, the new edition has been thoroughly updated to reflectinformation from current research and diagnostic and clinicalpublications. Key changes include a review of microbial cellstructure and function and increased emphasis on the key points ofpathogenesis and host responses to infection. Organized into four sections, the Third Edition begins with anupdated and expanded introductory section on infectious diseasepathogenesis, diagnosis and clinical management. The second sectioncovers bacterial and fungal pathogens, and the third sectiondescribes viral diseases and viruses. The final sectionpresents a systematic approach of describing infection and diseaseof animals. Equally useful for beginning veterinary students andseasoned practitioners, Veterinary Microbiology offers athorough introduction and reference text for veterinary infectiousdisease.

Updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, Concise Review of Veterinary Microbiology, 2nd Edition, presents essential information on veterinary microbiology for students and those requiring a refresher on key topics relating to microbial diseases in animals. Morphological, cultural and other descriptive features of pathogenic microorganisms are described, together with their habitats and aetiological roles in disease production in animals and, where appropriate, in the human population. Key features: • There are five sections covering bacteriology, mycology, virology, biosecurity and other aspects of infectious diseases • Provides concise, yet comprehensive information on pathogenic microorganisms of importance in veterinary medicine, the diseases which they cause, their diagnosis and control • The 79 short chapters in this book include 13 new chapters on antibacterial resistance, structure and function of the immune system, antifungal chemotherapy, antiviral chemotherapy, principles of biosecurity and a number of topics related to the control and prevention of infectious diseases • This latest edition uses updated nomenclature and includes detailed diagrams now in full colour, and comprehensive tables

The most recent revision of this comprehensive text covers the bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogenic agents that are significant causes of animal disease. The focus includes pathogenic mechanisms and processes in infectious diseases; methods of diagnosis; and principles of resistance, prevention, and therapy. Veterinary Microbiology, Second Edition is now organized in four sections according to the most appropriate methods of instruction. Section 1 deals with the general characteristics of the host– parasite relationship, laboratory diagnosis of conditions involving an infectious etiology, antimicrobial treatment, and prevention of infectious disease. Sections 2 (bacteria and fungi) and 3 (viruses) present the infectious agents that affect the veterinary species. The chapters dealing with the bacterial agents are grouped mainly by morphology, and their gram-staining characteristics. The fungal agents are grouped mainly by morphologic characteristics (yeast, mold). The viruses are grouped along taxonomic grounds. Section 4, an enhancement new to this edition, deals with the infectious agents in the context of the host. This section is organized by organ system. Each organ system is discussed first as a microbial habitat, followed by discussion of those infectious agents that mainly affect that particular system. In addition to serving as a resource for veterinary students, Veterinary Microbiology, Second Edition also serves as a convenient reference for veterinarians and veterinary scientists whose main line of activity and expertise is outside the areas of microbiology.
