About this book

Foundations of Wildlife Diseases is a comprehensive overview of the basic principles governing the study of wildlife diseases. The authors integrate theoretical foundations with a thorough examination of the factors that can affect the health and fitness of animals and provide specific information on a wide array of infectious agents, such as bacteria, viruses, arthropods, fungi, protista, and helminths, as well as immunity to these agents. Foundations are also provided for the study of noninfectious diseases, cancers, and prion diseases of wildlife.

Supporting students, faculty, and researchers in areas related to wildlife management, biology, and veterinary sciences, Foundations of Wildlife Diseases fills an important gap in wildlife disease resources and gives systematic focus to mammalian and avian wildlife, while also considering reptiles and amphibians.
