The Mononegavirales is an order of viruses—responsible for diseases including Rinderpest, Rabies and Ebola—affecting large, small, and marine animals. This book discusses the epidemiology and control of Mononegaviruses that pose a significant threat in terms of severity and epidemiological risk. It also addresses viruses with zoonotic potential and many that can be used as models in the study of infectious disease.

With its comprehensive coverage, each chapter is dedicated to a different disease and has been authored by renowned scientists who have made seminal contributions to the field. This prestigious reference work is arranged over two volumes: Volume 1: Pathobiology and Molecular Diagnosis and Volume 2: Molecular Epidemiology and Control. This broad-ranging text covers mononegaviral diseases of livestock, horses, dogs and cats, as well as rodents, primates, fish, and marine mammals. It will be a valuable reference source for virologists, field veterinarians, infection, and molecular biologists as well as immunologists and animal scientists.
