However, in addition, the reader will discover that it is a very readable discourse upon disease of ecological and economic importance in wild animals. involving the health of humans or domestic animals. Management of disease in wild animals is usually undertaken for some reason that will benefit humans, such as reducing or controlling zoonotic diseases, diseases shared with domestic animals, or disease conditions considered to be detrimental to species valued by Size: KB.

    The book ends with chapters on the effects of wildlife disease in individual animals and populations, and the interactions of these animals with humans and domestic livestock. The author’s stated objective to provide a “framework for thinking about disease in wildlife” has been : Jane Parmley.

Lexicon of Parasites and Diseases in Livestock focuses on the scientific names of parasites and diseases and their equivalents in other languages. The book first offers information on parasitology, including zooparasites of livestock (protozoans, worms, insects, and arachnids) and bacteriology and virology, including pathogenic fungi.

Infectious Diseases of Wild Mammals and Birds in Europe is a key resource on the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases in European wildlife that covers the distinctive nature of diseases as they occur in Europe, including strains, insect vectors, reservoir species, and climate, as well as geographical distribution of the diseases and European regulations for reporting, diagnosis.

Ebola, SARS, Hendra, AIDS, and countless other deadly viruses all have one thing in common: the bugs that transmit these diseases all originate in wild animals and pass to humans by a process called /5(K).
