Invertebrate Medicine 2nd Edition, offers a thorough update to the most comprehensive book on invertebrate husbandry and veterinary care. Including pertinent biological data for invertebrate species, the book’s emphasis is on providing state-of-the-art information on medicine and the clinical condition.
Invertebrate Medicine, 2nd Edition
Invertebrate Medicine, Second Edition is an invaluable guide to the medical care of both captive and wild invertebrate animals. Coverage includes sponges, jellyfish, anemones, corals, mollusks, starfish, sea urchins, crabs, crayfish, lobsters, shrimp, hermit crabs, spiders, scorpions, and many more, with chapters organized by taxonomy. New chapters provide information on reef systems, honeybees, butterfly houses, conservation, welfare, and sources of invertebrates and supplies. Invertebrate Medicine, Second Edition is an essential resource for veterinarians in zoo animal, exotic animal and laboratory animal medicine; public and private aquarists; and aquaculturists.
This book is the product of a concerted effort by a group of dedicated and experienced authors on the topic of invertebrate animal medicine. This is not an invertebrate zoology text and is by no means comprehensive with regard to the anatomy, physiology, natural history, and taxonomy of the myriad of invertebrate taxa. This is a veterinary and husbandry text about invertebrate animals that includes pertinent biological data as well as state – of – the – science information pertaining to medicine and the clinical condition. It is my hope that this book will be a valuable guide to those charged with the medical care and well – being of both captive and wild invertebrate animals.
Invertebrates and their health management are a good ﬁt with the widely adopted and held philosophy of “ one health ” or “ one medicine, ” which pertains to all animal species, including humans. It is my hope that this text will contribute to the advances and understanding of this approach to global health and well – being.
