The second part focuses on the epidemiology of disease in populations and outbreak investigation. A glossary of epidemiologic terms and an extensive bibliography are also included. The Second Edition includes myriad updates to reflect the expanding use of epidemiologic methodology in clinical research.
This book serves as both a teaching resource for veterinary epidemiology and a reference on the application of epidemiologic methods in veterinary clinical research.
