Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rose Ann Meccoli, BS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a new edition (previous edition 1986) covering techniques, procedures, diseases, and treatments of selected groups of zoo and wild animal populations.
Purpose: This book's purpose is to present current and new information and thinking regarding particular groups of animals, with emphasis on their diseases and treatments. For those persons interested in the target groups of animals discussed, the book offers worthwhile and useful material.
Audience: The book is primarily directed at veterinarians specializing in zoological medicine. Both the author and many contributors manage to speak to not only their desired audience, but to those in related fields, making it understandable for all.
Features: This book might benefit from more photographs, particularly in the areas of disease conditions and parasitism and descriptions of techniques.
Assessment: Although several references are from the 1970s, most are within the last six years. The author did not intend this book to be a replacement for his second edition, and indeed, it is not. Although the 1986 book was more comprehensive, this book deals with targeted groups of animals. The information presented may be quite useful for those working with the animals discussed as well as the veterinarian who may be presented with a zoo or wild exotic animal. The information in some areas could have been expande d, but overall, the book is a useful reference.
