Abstract: The new edition of this leading textbook on laboratory animals is the work of 60 contributors, and it incorporates numerous improvements in husbandry, arising from experience gained since the previous edition of 1987. The text deals with mammals (30 chapters), birds (6 chapters) and reptiles (one chapter). Each chapter describes biological features, housing, breeding, feeding and 'common welfare problems' of a given species. Thus there are 31 pages on mice, 18 on rats, 22 on guinea-pigs, and 20 on dogs. Primates are the subject of 9 chapters. Amphibians and fish are dealt with in the accompanying volume 2.
Descriptors: animal husbandry, animal housing, animal welfare, laboratory animals.
