About this book

Organised by the host species of bird rather than by disease agent, each chapter is preceded by an introduction discussing the population and survival status of the birds or bird group. The distribution, prevalence, and intensity of each disease are given, followed by the significance of the disease to bird populations as well as to public health.

An outstanding resource for anyone interested in the biology of birds in Florida and nearby states... a truly exceptional work that will be used for decades. - William R. Davidson and M. Page Luttrell, Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, University of Georgia
