About this book

This high quality picture atlas offers an elaborate overview of the most frequent diseases occurring in falcons. It enables veterinarians, falcon breeders and owners as well as laboratory technicians to utilize the knowledge of experienced scientists gained in decades of work with birds of prey. The most important diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa are described in association with clinical symptoms as well as pathological and histological findings. A separate chapter deals with hematology and clinical chemistry of flacons. Reference laboratory values in this special field, established through years of practical experience in falcon medicine, are provided. About 380 colored images with elaborate picture legends illustrate not only the clinical signs but also the diagnostic details. Contributions concerning the current vaccine scheme, the history of falconry in the Middle East and CITES requirements for protection of species round up the work.
