Description - Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology by G. R. Carter
Emphasizing practical applications, this new edition of Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology provides the latest information on all facets of the microbial pathogens of animals of veterinary interest. Directed to undergraduate veterinary students in their second year of study, this text provides the more important facts of the pathogenesis of bacterial and fungal infections of animals. The book includes an introduction to the basic characteristics of bacteria and fungi; their implications for antimicrobial therapy; and detailed descriptions of the major genera of pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Included in the text as supplemental material are abbreviated case reports and descriptions of outbreaks of infectious disease, as well as a number of references listed at the end of each chapter and a glossary of terms not explained in the text. Essentials of Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology 6e is the foremost text on veterinary microbiolgy and fills an important niche in veterinary education.
This book provides readers with the basic tools to* Identify the characteristics of important bacterial and fungal agents of animal disease* Describe animal diseases as they pertain to human health* Discuss the importance of bacterial and fungal factors in the development of immunity* Evaluate approaches to prevention, diagnosis, antimicrobial susceptibility and treatment
