Zoonoses are diseases naturally transmissible between vertebrate animals and man including those transmitted by direct contact with infected animals or carcases, by food or water contamination, and by inhalation of infected dust. They are increasingly important in public health issues. Divided into three sections along the lines of bacteriology, parasitology and virology, this book comprehensively provides a systematic, cross disciplinary approach to the science and control of all zoonoses, written by international specialists in human and veterinary medicine. Chapters cover the history of each disease, the scientific basis for the control of zoonoses, the microbiology of the causative agent, pathogenesis, clinical features, symptoms and signs, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. The epidemiology of each disease is described alongside the strategies for prevention and control. Each of these chapters have been updated for the second edition, and the book also includes new chapters on important public health topics such as interdisciplinary or policy issues as well as new chapters on emerging zoonoses such as SARS and other important emerging diseases and trends.
