@qu:"With its companion volume Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research-Biology and Management, the editors have produced a definitive clinical reference set that will serve the biomedical research community for many years... The writing is clear throughout and the editors have carefully integrated and cross-referenced the multi-authored text. The numerous illustrations are particularly impressive."
@source:--David Lee-Parritz for CONTEMPORARY TOPICS (May 1999)
@qu:"The first five chapters are etiology focused, covering viral, bacterial and mycotic, and parasitic diseases, as well as neoplastic disorders and environmental hazards. The last eight chapters are systems oriented, covering the diseases/disorders pertinent to a specific system, such as the nervous or digestive system. This combination of approaches provides the information in a very usable format and makes this an excellent reference text. This is a welcome general reference on nonhuman primate diseases and is the definitive source available today. All professionals and animal caregivers who work with nonhuman primates should have ready access to this text."
