This title is suitable for veterinary pathologists in research and veterinary diagnostic laboratories throughout Australia and overseas, as well as veterinary clinicians, zoos and wildlife parks, wildlife researchers, environmentalists and conservationists, and students.
"Pathology of Australian Native Wildlife" brings together in one volume all of the available information on the anatomical pathology of Australian native vertebrate wildlife, excluding fish. It provides rapid access to documented information on diseases in Australian wildlife, domiciled in Australia as well as overseas, and will facilitate accurate diagnosis.The book comprises 45 chapters, each detailing pathological changes found in diseases caused by particular aetiological agents such as viruses, bacteria and nematode parasites in terrestrial and marine mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. Although the aim is to describe morphological (gross and microscopic) changes, an attempt has also been made to indicate history and clinical signs that might suggest a particular disease, aetiological agent or pathological process, thus providing guidance as to which lesions should be specifically searched for, and what ancillary testing might be needed to confirm a diagnosis.
Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, this will be an invaluable reference for veterinary pathologists and clinicians, as well as wildlife researchers, zoos and wildlife parks, environmentalists and conservationists, and students.
