Veterinary Parasitology by M. A. Taylor

Book Description

Long established as a bestselling parasitology book for veterinary practitioners and veterinary students, the previous edition lead by Urquhart was praised as '...probably the best available veterinary parasitology text for the practitioner' (Clinical Insight). This third edition of Veterinary Parasitology is a major update which builds on the spirit of earlier editions. New authors with a wealth of experience of teaching and researching the subject have thoroughly revised and restructured the book to reflect modern teaching practice and the most up-to-date coverage of advances in this area. Arranged by host species and organ systems within the host, with extensive cross-referencing to enable ease of access to information on particular parasites. The core focus is on parasites of livestock and companion animals, but new sections also cover parasites of poultry and gamebirds, laboratory animals, exotic pets and 'farmed' species. Expanded sections on protozoa and ectoparasites, as well as coverage of a larger selection of parasites of veterinary significance around the world. The majority of parasitic diseases are now covered in detail using a standardised format for each parasite to allow easy referencing and identification and for comparison between species within a genus. Suitable for veterinary students, as well as researchers of veterinary parasitology, veterinarians in practice and in government service and others who are involved in aspects of parasitic disease. About the authors: Professor Mike Taylor is head of Veterinary Surveillance at the Central Science Laboratory York, UK. He is also a visiting Professor of Parasitology at the Royal Veterinary College, London and at the University of Wales, Bangor, an Honorary Fellow of the University of Edinburgh, as well as a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Parasitology, and Editor-in-Chief of Veterinary Parasitology. Dr Bob Coop was formerly Head of the Division of Parasitology at the Moredun Research Institute, Scotland, and is now Honorary Fellow of the Moredun Foundation. He has over 35 years' experience of research in veterinary parasitology. Richard Wall is Professor of Zoology at the University of Bristol, UK, where he teaches and heads an internationally recognized research group working on the ecology, behaviour and control of arthropod parasites and vectors. He has served as veterinary editor of the journal Medical & Veterinary Entomology and President of the British Association for Veterinary Parasitolgy; he is a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society.
