Salmonella is an major cause of zoonotic infections (animal diseases which can infect humans) on a worldwide scale. Consequently, it is an organism which is the subject of a considerable amount of research. Written by leading researchers into Salmonella from Europe, North America andAustralia, this book provides the only up to date review of work on all aspects of Salmonella in farm animals, including fundamental characteristics and biology (together with the laboratory techniques necessary for their study), a description of its effects, virulence, epidemiology andcontrol.
