Overview

Parasitic Diseases of Wild Birds provides thorough coverage of major parasite groups affecting wild bird species. Broken into four sections covering protozoa, helminths, leeches, and arthropod parasites, this volume provides reviews of the history, disease, epizootiology, pathology, and population impacts caused by parasitic disease. Taking a unique approach that focuses on the effects of the parasites on the host, Parasitic Diseases of Wild Birds fills a unique niche in animal health literature.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent text that contains a tremendous amount of information useful for both wildlife biologists and veterinarians." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, June 2009

"Overall this very reasonably-priced book is quite well done. I recommend this book to any veterinarian working with wild birds or wild-caught birds including zoo specimens or veterinary students with an interest in such matters. Wildlife biologists, wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife centers should also find this book useful. University parasitologists should also find an interest in this new offering." -Veterinary Information Network
