This volume contains 81 chapters that relate to veterinary and bacterial virology. The first section describes general features of farm and other animals of agricultural importance. The following three sections detail other animal viruses, avian viruses, and viruses affecting aquatic species such as fish and crustaceans. The Section five deals with viruses which infect bacteria. This is the most comprehensive single-volume source providing an overview of virology issues related to animal and bacteria. It bridges the gap between basic undergraduate texts and specialized reviews. It features concise and general overviews of important topics within the field that will help in preparation of lectures, writing reports, or drafting grant applications.
