Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases of Livestock (Hardcover)
about this item
This book provides comprehensive knowledge on diseases in livestock that are caused by viruses, parasites and bacteria. Emerging and re-emerging pathogens are presented in detail for various animal groups and in-depth insights into pathogenesis and epidemiology will be provided for each of them. In addition state-of-the-art treatment possibilities as well as vaccination strategies are discussed. The recent years have witnessed a sharp rise in the number of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases of livestock and many of these, including Influenza, Corona, Hanta and Ebola, are of public health importance. The factors for this development are manifold: changes in the landscape and atmosphere, globalization, and life cycle of vectors. In addition, due to widespread deforestation, wild animals are increasingly coming in direct contact with domestic and pet animals, leading to pathogen jump from one species to another. Recent progress in diagnosis and management of emerging infectious diseases are also topic of this book.
