Diseases of Poultry is the most comprehensive reference for all aspects of poultry health and diseases, including pathogenesis, diagnostics, epidemiology, and control methods. Published in partnership with the American Association of Avian Pathologists, the Thirteenth Edition remains the international definitive reference, adding newer diagnostic methods and a new chapter on the emerging importance of zoonotic infections for poultry pathogens. Other updates include new high-quality photographs, additional discussion of conceptual operational biosecurity and disease control in organic production systems, and a greater emphasis throughout on the differences in disease incidence and treatments for the United States and other areas around the globe. Organized logically by disease type, Diseases of Poultry offers detailed coverage of the history, etiology, pathobiology, diagnosis, and intervention strategies, as well as the economic and public health significance, for an exhaustive list of common and uncommon diseases. Diseases of Poultry, 13th Edition is an essential purchase for poultry veterinarians, veterinary diagnosticians, poultry scientists, students specializing in poultry health, and government officials who deal with poultry health in regulatory climate.

The 12th edition of 'Diseases of Poultry' retains its status as the ultimate reference on poultry diseases. In addition to comprehensive coverage of etiology, diagnostics, and specific disease interventions, chapters on comprehensive disease control methods and immunology are included. The authorship has become increasingly international over the years-a necessary change as poultry husbandry has continued to expand in geographic scope.... an excellent value for those needing a comprehensive reference text.
- Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2008
"True to the rich heritage of past editions, the 12th edition... continues to be the standard comprehensive reference addressing diseases and abnormalities of poultry. It is the collective product of an exceptionally qualified editorial board and 96 contributing authors. Specific chapters and disease entities are authored by one or more contributors widely acclaimed as exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject. Overall, the figures, tables, and photographs are of improved quality and contribute tremendously to the usefulness of the book. The editors and authors have masterfully incorporated new information acquired since the publishing of the 11th edition while maintaining the book's familiar format.... an indispensible reference for researchers, teachers, pathologists, clinical veterinarians, and all others desiring a comprehensive resource for the study and review of 'Diseases of Poultry'."
- Journal of Applied Poultry Research, December 2008
"Any college-level veterinary medicine library and any practicing vet working with farm animals MUST have 'Diseases of Poultry'. The 12th updated edition represents an extensive update and overhaul and packs in over 1300 pages of facts, from articles on various types of infections and their treatment to diagnosis, management, and flock health. It's the most extensive reference on the market and will easily prove a vet's 'bible' of information for poultry management - many a farmer with a flock will need it, as well."
- Midwest Book Review, November 2008
"The most authoritative book on avian health - 'Diseases of Poultry' - has arrived! [...] An essential textbook for all poultry veterinarians and a useful source of information for anyone involved in large scale poultry production."
