Updated to reflect the latest developments in the field,Concise Review of Veterinary Microbiology, 2nd Edition, presents essential information on veterinary microbiology for students and those requiring a refresher on key topics relating to microbial diseases in animals. Morphological, cultural and other descriptive features of pathogenic microorganisms are described, together with their habitats and aetiological roles in disease production in animals and, where appropriate, in the human population.Key features:<
/>• There are five sections covering bacteriology, mycology, virology, biosecurity and other aspects of infectious diseases<
/>• Provides concise, yet comprehensive information on pathogenic microorganisms of importance in veterinary medicine, the diseases which they cause, their diagnosis and control<
/>• The 79 short chapters in this book include 13 new chapters on antibacterial resistance, structure and function of the immune system, antifungal chemotherapy, antiviral chemotherapy, principles of biosecurity and a number of topics related to the control and prevention of infectious diseases<
/>• This latest edition uses updated nomenclature and includes detailed diagrams now in full colour, and comprehensive tables
