Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne Barger, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This atlas has a multitude of images demonstrating the many species of birds and the tremendous variability in their response to disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to augment the available information on avian hematology by addressing the differences in species of birds in health and disease. There is a lack of easily obtainable information on this issue, and the authors do a good job of evaluating as many birds as possible with many useful images.
Audience: Students, practitioners, and residents would find this book useful.
Features: It covers many aspects of hematology including obtaining a sample and preparing and staining the slides to evaluation of normal and abnormal cells. It also addresses the interpretation of the presence of abnormal cells and artifacts in the sample. The best part of this book is the case-based approach to hematology with the many images.
Assessment: This useful book attempts to cover a lot of material in a concise format. The images will assist practitioners and clinical pathologists in becoming more familiar with different species of birds and their hematologic response to disease.
