Manual of Poultry Diseases is available to download free in pdf / epub format.
Poultry is the predominant type of animal production in both developed and developing countries. While poultry production has expanded significantly in recent decades, particularly in Asia, since late 2003 growth has been curbed worldwide by the spread of avian influenza.
Poultry production is critical to the economy and food security of many developing countries because not only is poultry easy to farm and well suited to backyard production, in many cases it is a staple food.
This richly illustrated manual of poultry diseases is a key reference work that reviews poultry production systems across the globe, describing the range of diseases affecting all domesticated bird species, and contains a section on differential diagnosis to aid in detecting and recognising specific diseases.
