Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease 2nd Edition PDF
Today, microbiology occupies a central position in the veterinary curriculum and has developed into a subject of vast complexity. Since the publication of Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease in 2002, many changes have occurred in veterinary microbiology, some on the recommendations of international committees and others as a consequence of relevant research.
The Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease 2nd Edition incorporates changes in individual chapters which have been updated and expanded. In addition, new chapters on immunodeficiency diseases, vaccines and vaccination, molecular diagnostic methods, antibacterial resistance, anti fungal chemotherapy, antiviral chemotherapy and microbial diseases of the urinary tract, cardiovascular system, musculature system and the integument system have been added.
This edition is divided into seven sections. The first section provides an introduction to microbiology, infection, immunity and molecular diagnostic methods. Section II contains chapters on introductory bacteriology. Pathogenic bacteria are dealt with in Section III. The twelve chapters in Section IV are concerned with mycology. Introductory virology is presented in Section V. Viruses and prions are covered in Section VI. The final section, Section VII, includes chapters on the interactions of microbial pathogens with body systems. A separate chapter in this section deals with bovine mastitis and the final chapter provides a comprehensive review of disinfection, bio security and other aspects of disease control.
To facilitate readers requiring additional information on topics included in the book, a list of websites is provided at the end of Section VII. The use of colour in this edition enhances the quality of the illustrations and facilitates the interpretation of complex diagrams.
