Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This great text book of almost 1,400 pages is still thegold standard and David E. Swayne and his five associate editorsmust be congratulated on a job well done!.” (International Hatchery Practice, 1 March 2014)

“It is more useful as a reference to support analready-determined diagnosis, or for students interested inepidemiology, or requiring more detailed knowledge of specificpoultry diseases. As such it is probably aimed at the poultryspecialist, researcher or for the library of an academicinstitute”.  (Veterinary Record, 15 March2014)
