Poultry Diseases 6th Edition PDF
This book Poultry Diseases includes information that is relevant to veterinary and agricultural students and their teachers, veterinarians in government and practice, and management staﬀ involved in poultry companies. This is now the sixth edition of the book ﬁrst edited by the visionary Dr R. F. Gordon in 1977.
Its continued success has been a tribute to the zeal, tenacity and scientiﬁc standing of Professor Frank Jordan. This is the ﬁrst edition where he has not been senior editor and the four of us are privileged to continue as his successors.
The poultry industry is very important to the world agricultural economy, and technological innovation has greatly improved the eﬃciency of poultry production, especially in relation to housing, nutrition, genetics and health management.
Hence it was considered necessary to update the content of this book without fundamentally changing its format. For example, the chapter on avian inﬂ uenza has been expanded and the welfare chapter has been extended to include the European situation. In the bacteriology section, the reclassiﬁ cation of organisms of ‘Pasteurella type’ is brought up to date.
The importance of biosecurity is now well understood by industry and governments and this is reﬂected by a complete revamp of the chapter on hygiene.
We would like to acknowledge the helpful suggestions and assistance of numerous colleagues in the production of this new edition.
