This beautifully illustrated, comprehensive reference provides concise information on the materials and methods of bacteriology, mycology, and virology. The book covers the collection, isolation, and culture of diagnostic specimens, with detailed notes on the biochemical, serological and other tests currently used to identify and distinguish between microbial pathogens. The new edition sets out to provide the most up-to-date account of all the clinically and economically important pathogens, including Bovine Spongiform Encephalomyeltis, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, E-coli, and Salmonella. The clear, accessible format, together with the complete revision of the content, makes this a valuable resource.
All veterinary medicine students are educated to understand the importance of micro-organisms in the health of the animals they treat. The area of microbiology â including general procedures, bacteriology, mycology and virology are taught, in stages, from the 3rd year onwards. Therefore, although the main market will be both small and large animal clinical practitioners, and specialist microbiologists in particular, the student and library markets are also very important .
