The sixth edition of the popular Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology provides the latest information on all facets of the microbial pathogens of animals and everything required for an introductory course in veterinary bacteriology and mycology.
Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology Sixth Edition
This book includes the basic characteristics of bacteria and fungi with two chapters on molecular biology and genetics and their applications. Handy glossaries are at the end of most chapters to aid comprehension. Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology also deals with microbial pathogens of animals and the diseases they cause. Pathogenic bacteria are discussed in the order in which they occur in the latest molecular genetic (Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology) classification. This book is the foremost text in veterinary microbiology and continues to fill an important niche in veterinary education.
A taxonomic approach has been used in the presentation of the Major pathogenic bacteria. Although the emphasis on taxonomy may seem at times burdensome, it helps show the correlation between genetic relatedness and the kind of disease produced.
We have attempted to provide the latest information on all facets of the principal bacterial and fungal pathogens of veterinary interest. As in earlier editions, a special effort has been made to emphasize practical applications. The book is primarily directed to undergraduate veterinary students.
Veterinary microbiology is traditionally taught by means of lectures and laboratory exercises. This text provides the more important facts of introductory and pathogenic microbiology for the didactic portion. In the interest of economy, the number of illustrations has been kept to a minimum. If laboratory exercises are adequate, students will have an opportunity to observe and study the microscopic and cultural characteristics of important microorganisms.
