"This 256- volume, although slim, fills a very large hole in the current literature, one that is often encountered by a wide range of veterinary pathologists, from toxicologoical pathologists who work with laboratory species on a daily basis...It's not that you can't afford to buy this book; it's that you can't afford not to buy this book." Davis Foundation Newsletter, November 2011 "To those working in toxicological and research pathology, it (is) likely to be used on an almost daily basis. In fact, given the large numbers of animal-based studies being carried out in universities and other research institutions, this atlas will also benefit those scientists who read their own histology...In summary, this is an excellent reference atlas and is likely to a valuable tool for a wide range of pathologists." Veterinary Record, February 2012 "This book will be an important contribution to the science of laboratory animal and toxicological pathology. It is a concise summary of lesions attributed to species, strains, age, sex etc., i.e designated 'background lesions, seen in the primary animal species used in research laboratories'." Austalian Veterinary Pathology Society, February 2012 "This concise volume fills a gaping void in the existing toxicologic pathology knowledge base that is regularly encountered by pathologists, toxicologists, regulatory scientists and basic researchers...This reference provides an excellent source for defining the potential relevance of 'normal abnormalities' when compiling pathology data sets...In summary, newcomers to the field will recieve the most benefit, but seasoned veterans will also profit by rediscovering man seldom-seen acquaintances and gaining a wealth of citations for further honing their skills.
