Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Kent Davis, DVM, B.S.(University of Illinois Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital)
Description: This is an overview of the biology, medicine, and surgery of South American wild animals.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the biology, medicine, and surgery of the wildlife found in South America. These are worthy objectives since this is the first book of its kind written for scientists.
Audience: It is written for veterinarians, biologists, and scientists specializing in exotic and zoo animals.
Features: The book contains a comprehensive discussion of the biology, medicine, and surgery of wild animals in South America. This information is very difficult to find in one text. The illustrations and graphs help to understand the subject being discussed. Although it is difficult to cover every species found in such a large region the author has managed to cover most of them in a concise, easy to understand format.
Assessment: This book is of good quality and provides a lot of the information needed to reference for the clinician, biologist, researcher, administrator or rehabilitator of wildlife in South America. Wildlife biology, medicine, and surgery information is difficult to come by. The authors have provided a concise informative reference of this information. The quality is very professional.
