After nearly 20 years, the publication of this Second Edition of The Biology of the Laboratory Rabbit attests to its popularity within the scientific community as well as to the need to update an expanding database on the rabbit as a major species in laboratory investigation. The principal aim of this text is to provide a comprehensive and authoritative source of scientifically based information on a major laboratory animal species. The text continues to emphasize the normal biology as well as diseases of the European (domestic) rabbit, Orytolagus cuniculus, especially the New Zealand White breed, with occasional reference to other rabbit species (Sylvilagus sp.) and hares (Lepus sp.). New topics have been added to this second edition in response to changing trends in biomedical research and product testing as well as to suggestions from readers.

@qu:"This is a classic work and the best text on rabbits available. All persons with an interest in biologic aspects, diseases, (especially noteworthy), and use of rabbits in research will find this work a most valuable addition to their reference shelf." @source:--JOURNAL OF AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICINE ASSOCIATION @qu:"This book is a very valuable addition to the ACLAM series, and to the available literature on rabbits. It will be an invaluable resource, and will soon be as indispensable as the rabbits themselves." @source:--LABORATORY ANIMALS @qu:"The Second Editionis a welcome publication for veterinarians, biologists, and researchers who require information on a variety of topics to domestic lagomorphs... This book was long overdue, and it provides a valuable update on a variety of topics related to this species. The text contains a wealth of information in updated form, the figures re of good quality, and the written material has been provided by experts who are well qualified to cover their particular area." @source:--CANADIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL @qu:"...this new edition continues a worthy ACLAM tradition of providing comprehensive resource information on the specialty of laboratory animal science and medicine. It should become a standard reference text for all those involved in the study, care, and use of rabbits." @source:--SYNAPSE
