The revised eleventh edition of Diseases of Poultry comes five years after the publication of the previous edition. Expansion of the poultry industry continues in all categories and in all areas of the world, fueled by and keeping pace with an increased demand for poultry products. While consumer demand has driven the continuing growth of the poultry industry, the resulting increased poultry population density and the rearing of different types of incompatible poultry species in close proximity have presented major disease challenges. Researchers and poultry veterinarians have had to effectively deal with the disease aspects of that growth. The ability to prevent and control disease has been crucial in allowing the poultry production process to function efficiently. Diseases of Poultry, 11e reflects those changes in poultry production. All of the chapters have been updated by recognized experts in their fields and the format of the chapters has been standardized for the reader's convenience. An international text and the standard universal textbook on the subject, Diseases of Poultry, 11e includes contributions by leading researchers and teachers. Also notable are the revised introduction subchapters which include Emerging Diseases and Diseases of Complex or Unknown Etiology, Salmonella Infections, and Paturella and Other Related Bacterial Infections.
