About this book

This finely illustrated text, written by a leading researcher in the field of reptile medicine, catalogues all infectious diseases and pathologies of reptiles. Supported by 200 full color, and more than 300 black and white photos along with other illustrations, this atlas begins with an overview of the biology of reptiles and general reptilian pathology. It then addresses specific topics such as molecular diagnosis, identifying pathogens in tissue samples, serodiagnostics, and isolation of pathogens. It also catalogues specific pathology due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Included are numerous never-before -published electron microscope findings of reptile lesions.
