Salmonella is a major cause of zoonotic infections (animal diseases which can infect humans) on a worldwide scale. Consequently, it is an organism which is the subject of a considerable amount of research. Written by leading researchers into Salmonella from europe, North America and Australia, this book provides an up-to-date review of work on all aspects of Salmonella in farm animals, including fundamental characteristics and biology (together with the laboratory techniques necessary for their study), a description of its effects, virulence, epidemiology and control. This book is suitable for students, lecturers and researchers in veterinary medicine and microbiology and should be useful to workers in medical microbiology and public health.
