Veterinary Science theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Veterinary medicine's ultimate purpose is to promote, maintain and restore the health of animals, people and the ecosystems which they inhabit. The theme on Veterinary Science focuses on ensuring the health and welfare of animals and provides the essential aspects and a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as Veterinary Medicine; Veterinary Surveillance; Metabolic Disorders of Dairy Cattle; Veterinary Pathology; Veterinary Toxicology; Comparative Immunology-Based Approaches to Veterinary Diseases; Veterinary Virology; Veterinary Bacteriology; Veterinary Mycology; Veterinary Helminthology; Biology of select zoonotic protozoan infections of domestic animals; Veterinary Ectoparasitology. This volume is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.

Die 3. vollständig überarbeitete Auflage dieses Buches führt in die Biologie parasitärer Einzeller, Würmer und Arthropoden ein. Die Autoren bieten auf Grundlage der aktuellen Systematik eine Übersicht über die verschiedenen Parasitengruppen. Ausführlich wird auf wichtige Infektionserreger, wie die der Malaria, Schlafkrankheit und Toxoplasmose eingegangen, wobei die molekularen Grundlagen der Pathogene erläutert werden. Außerdem werden Parasiten als Krankheitsüberträger dargestellt und wichtige Infektionskrankheiten, die bei Tieren vorkommen, besprochen. Daher wendet sich dieses Buch sowohl an Biologen, als auch an Veterinärmediziner und Mediziner. In den einzelnen Kapiteln kommen die Anpassungen an die parasitische Lebensweise zur Sprache. Anhand häufiger Vertreter werden exemplarisch typische Lebenszyklen, die Immunreaktionen und die resultierenden Krankheitsbilder erklärt. Viele Abbildungen veranschaulichen dabei den Text. Die Prüfungsfragen am Ende eines jeden Kapitels helfen den Lerninhalt zu rekapitulieren und zu verinnerlichen.

This new edition of Fungi in Ecosystem Processes continues the unique approach of examining the roles of fungi from the perspective of ecosystem functions. It explores how fungi have adapted to survive within particular constraints, how they help to maintain homeostasis in ecosystems, how they facilitate resistance to perturbations, and how they influence the communities of other organisms. Updated and revised, the second edition Expands the section on plant pathogens, invasive species, and insect–fungal interactions Provides more extensive coverage on insect–fungal interactions, including entomopathogens, the links between entomopathogens and endophytes, and symbiotic and mutualistic interactions Adds a new section on fungi in the built environment Presents new material on below-ground to above-ground interactions mediated through fungi, such as mycorrhizal signaling systems for herbivory defense The book also includes expanded coverage of the role of fungi in suppressive soils, aquatic and marine fungi, modern methods of following food chains in fungal–invertebrate trophic interactions, and the physiology of nutrient uptake by mycorrhizae. A necessary update and expansion to previous material, this book provides an essential reference on the current understanding of fungal roles in ecosystem processes. It also identifies directions for future study, including an emphasis on the need for further research on fungi in built environments.
