Product description

Microbiology is one of the core subjects for veterinary students, and since its first publication in 2002, Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease has become an essential text for students of veterinary medicine. Fully revised and expanded, this new edition updates the subject for pre-clinical and clinical veterinary students in a comprehensive manner. Individual sections deal with bacteriology, mycology and virology. Written by an academic team with many years of teaching experience, the book provides concise descriptions of groups of microorganisms and the diseases which they cause. Microbial pathogens are discussed in separate chapters which provide information on the more important features of each microorganism and its role in the pathogenesis of diseases of animals. The international and public health significance of these pathogens are reviewed comprehensively. The final section is concerned with the host and is organized according to the body system affected. Tables, boxes and flow diagrams provide information in an easily assimilated format. This edition contains new chapters on molecular diagnostics and on infectious conditions of the skin, cardiovascular system, urinary tract and musculoskeletal system. Many new colour diagrams are incorporated into this edition and each 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 in veterinary microbiology Companion website with figures from the book as Powerpoints for viewing or downloading by chapter: www.wiley.com/go/quinn/veterinarymicrobiology Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease remains indispensable for all those studying and teaching this essential component of the veterinary curriculum.

Review quote

"Overall I would recommend this book highly -- the tow strongest points are the absolutely brilliant organisation and the very high quality of illustration. The information is thorough without being intimidating, and well explained without being patronising." ( Veterinary Practice , 1 November 2013) "Regardless of one's approach to teaching of veterinary infectious diseases, this book should be an excellent instructional tool. Although intended for students in veterinary microbiology, it is extremely comprehensive and has sufficient scope and depth to be used by graduate students as well." ( Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association , 15 June 2012) "Overall, this is a well-written, logically organized, informative, and valuable resource, which covers both the laboratory aspects and clinical features of veterinary microbial diseases. Both the first and last sections are unique to most microbiology book. This second edition has made substantial improvements over the first edition." ( Doody's , 13 April 2012) "The new edition of 'Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease' is an absolutely first-rate textbook of veterinary microbiology ... When a second-year veterinary student referred to Quinn and others as the 'bright-coloured book', demonstrating to me that we already had it in the library and that students were using it, I could breathe a sigh of relief that they were in safe hands with this superb book." ( Veterinary Record , 24 March 2012)
