Now in its Twelfth Edition, "Diseases of Poultry" continues its tradition of excellence as the definitive reference of poultry disease. Following the same user-friendly format, the book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most current knowledge of avian pathology, including new coverage of genetic resistance to disease.
Coverage is given to both common and uncommon diseases, and chapters are organized by disease type, including viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic diseases as well as others, such as nutritional, developmental, metabolic, noninfectious diseases and toxins. Each disease section provides detailed coverage of history, etiology, pathobiology, diagnosis, and intervention strategies, as well as the economic and public health significance of each disease.
With a host of international authors, "Diseases of Poultry" is a must-have resource for all veterinary pathologists, practitioners, agricultural managers and industry leaders involved in poultry health and production.
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.

"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
