Overview

The aim of Veterinary Virology is to present the fundamental principles of virology to students of veterinary medicine and related medical, biomedical, ecological, environmental, and comparative medical sciences. It will also serve as a useful resource for clinicians, teachers, and those involved in research in many related fields of comparative medicine. The pace of change since the previous edition has been so great that the book has been completely rewritten and greatly expanded. Coverage of zoonotic viruses and the diseases they cause has been expanded as has coverage of the viruses and viral diseases of laboratory animals, poultry, fish, and wildlife. We have tried to weave the concept of new, emerging, and reemerging viral diseases into the fabric of the book, reflecting the new perspective this concept has brought to veterinary and zoonotic virology and related fields.
The arrangement of the previous editions has been retained, but our account of the molecular biology of viral infections is much more detailed and more thoroughly integrated into the overall subject. Similarly, our account of viral genetics, plylogeny, and evolution has been expanded and has become a more integral part of the book. This, of course, is built on accurate and up-to-date viral taxonomic usage. The classification and nomenclature decisions of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses, from May 1998, have been incorporated in this new edition.
Part I presents an overview of the principles of animal virology, starting with the viruses themselves and progressing to the infections they cause at the level of the cell, the individual animal host and the host population. The emphasis is on pathogenesis, that is the events in the war between virus and host that we see as acute, chronic-persistent, and more subtle forms of disease. Our focus on pathogenesis naturally leads to emphasis on subjects pertaining to the host response to infection and to the means of intervening in the course of infection: immunology, diagnostics, vaccinology, epidemiology, prevention, and control.
Part II is arranged by virus family, with major subsections in each chapter providing more specific information about the viruses, their classification, their molecular properties and their replication, and on the important veterinary and zoonotic diseases caused by specific viruses. The diseases are covered from the perspective of their clinical features, their pathogenesis, pathology and immunity, their laboratory diagnosis, and their epidemiology, prevention and control.
In order to focus on major virologic concepts and mechanisms that form the bases for our understanding of specific clinical diseases, minutiae have been omitted and much of the factual information is consolidated into tables.

Audience: Veterinary undergraduate and graduate students, postgraduates studying animal viruses, virologists, microbiologists, and veterinarians interested in infectious diseases.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Second Edition
"The information is clearly presented, current, and easy to read...The book contains information not available in other texts of this type and would be a valuable addition to any personal or institutional library."
--AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL
"This book is very well-written and reflects the enthusiasm of the distinguished authors for the subject matter. The text is directed primarily at veterinary students and is entirely appropriate for this readership. This reviewer has regularly recommended the previous edition to veterinary undergraduates at the Ontario Veterinary College, and will continue to recommend the Second Edition."
--CANADIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL
"Veterinary Virology is a well-worked text, coming as close as any available to the task of reconciling the enormous advances in basic virology with the needs of those interested in the associated animal diseases."
--W. PLOWRIGHT, THE VETERINARY RECORD
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Deoki N. Tripathy, BVScAH, MS, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This text contains 42 Chapters and 629 pages. The second edition was published in 1993.
Purpose: The objective is to present fundamental principles of virology to students of veterinary medicine and related fields.
Audience: Students in veterinary medicine and related medical, biomedical, ecological, environmental, and comparative medical sciences will benefit from this book.
Features: The illustrations are of good quality. The overall appearance of the book is excellent. The book is divided in two parts: in Part I an overview of the principles of animal virology is presented. In Part II the virus families are described. While retaining the arrangements of previous editions, the authors have greatly expanded this book. Virus diseases of various species (including zoonotic viruses) are covered. Current information on the molecular biology of the viruses is provided. Clinical features of viral infections are presented along with their pathogenesis, pathology, immunity, diagnosis, prevention, and control. This is a valuable book with pertinent information on viruses.
Assessment: All libraries of veterinary medicine and related fields should have this book. Veterinary students, graduate students, clinicians, teachers, and those involved in research in virology and other related fields of comparative medicine would find this book very useful as an excellent source of information on viruses.

His professional interests include the pathology and epidemiology of highly pathogenic viruses/viral diseases: rabies and the rabies-like viruses, arboviruses, hemorrhagic fever viruses, and other neurotropic viruses.
