Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Gerald J. Pijanowski, DVM, MS, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a general purpose topographic color atlas of the gross anatomy of the horse, ox, sheep, alpaca, swine, and chicken. It is divided into seven sections for a total of 159 pages.
Purpose: This book is designed as a general introduction to the gross anatomy of the major farm species for a broad-based audience from 4-H Club members to college students.
Audience: This book is written for a very wide audience, from 4-H members to college students. Practitioners could use this for client education. The authors are well known in their field.
Features: This is an atlas, not a textbook. The illustrations are generally well done, although there are some minor labeling errors. Surprisingly, there is no detailed illustration of the equine stifle and the locking mechanisms.
Assessment: For the audience for which this book is designed, this is a good reference.
