PREFACE



            The ferret (Mustela putorius) has become a fairly ubiquitous animal and is used or kept under various conditions. Ferrets are commonly kept as pets in the United States and are often exhibited in zoos for public viewing. Ferrets are also used in many areas of research. Ferrets share many anatomical, metabolic and physiologic features with humans which has promoted their use as an animal model. They are also used in a wide variety of research studies and demonstrations of medical procedures. Additional uses for them in research are constantly being found.


            The references, citations and articles on ferrets in various databases is quite numerous and it is not practical to list all references found in various database searches. This bibliography contains“selected”literature citations on the ferret, covering a wide range of topics, from 6 different databases. When available, the NAL call number is provided for materials located at the National Agricultural Library. Information on how to request materials that are included in the collection of the National Agricultural Library (NAL) may be found at :http://www.nal.usda.gov/borrow-materials. Please read carefully as there are certain restrictions on media and document types.Selected web sites on ferrets are also included at the end of this publication.
