Concise yet comprehensive, this text covers all the common and rarer diseases found in all species of poultry including chickens, ducks, turkeys, game birds and guinea-fowl. The book focuses on both the specific disease organisms and the more general aspects of the poultry industry, and provides a wide coverage of the whole subject area. The new edition has been thoroughly revised to encompass all aspects of poultry diseases and the related poultry industry. A new editor team has brought in a number of new contributors to reflect recent developments in South America and the Far East.
