Review Text

"This second edition provides major advances to the previous edition, particularly by introducing a more international perspective, especially with regard to regulatory oversight of nonhuman primate care. for any investigator interested in the applications and practice of nonhuman primate research in the biomedical sciences, these second edition books will be essential."-- The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2013 "As with the first edition of this book, I consider it a gold standard reference and an essential addition for those in the laboratory animal medicine field.The major strengths of this book include text that is rich with pertinent quality information, updates with color photos, addition of internet links, the overall easy-to-read layout and organizational scheme, and choice of highly knowledgeable authors."-- Laboratory Animal Practitioner , 46(3): 2013 "This book is a must-read for policy-makers especially within the Ministries of Trade, Food and Agriculture, and related agencies. It is a good technical material for the Food and Drugs, and the Ghana Standards Authorities, Universities, Research Institutions and Students of food science, international relations, development economics, agribusiness, and associated disciplines."-- Laboratory Animal Practitioner, 46(3): 2013
