4 Handbook on Import Risk Analysis for Animals and Animal Products. I. Introduction and qualitative risk analysis. II. Quantitative risk analysis
9290448075 New
 
2004-2010. 2 volumes. 30cm. Pp.98 ; 134. Softbound.

The importation of animals and their products involves a degree of disease risk to the importing country, represented by one or several diseases or pathogenic agents.

OIE Members are strongly encouraged to base their sanitary measures on international standards such as the OIE Terrestrial Code and the OIE Aquatic Code. In the absence of relevant standards or when Members choose to adopt a higher level of protection than that provided by such standards, science-based risk analysis is essential to determine whether the importation of a particular commodity poses a significant risk to human or animal health and, if so, what sanitary measures could be adopted to reduce that risk to an acceptable level. However, the level of protection applied to imports must not be different to that applied to products within the domestic market.

In this regard, the principal aim of import risk analysis is to provide importing countries with an objective and defensible method of assessing the disease risks associated with the importation of animals and their products.

With the support of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell'Abruzzo e del Molise 'G. Caporale' at Teramo (an OIE Collaborating Centre), an OIE ad hoc Group of internationally renowned experts has developed a comprehensive treatise on the subject.

Volume I of this Handbook introduces the concepts of import risk analysis and discusses qualitative risk analysis while Volume II addresses quantitative risk analysis.

The key issues in the discipline are explained within the frameworks provided by the WTO Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures and the chapters in both Codes on risk analysis.

The Handbook provides practical guidance to Veterinary Services confronted with the need to analyse the risks posed by imports, to ensure that stakeholders, risk analysts and decision-makers can be confident that the disease risks posed have been identified and can be managed effectively. The Handbook is also useful as a training aid to address the critical need for capacity building in this discipline.

La Faune Terrestre de l'Ile de Sainte-Helene, the standard account of terrestrial fauna of the volcanic tropical island of St. Helena.

Between 1791 and 1833, Saint Helena became the site of a series of experiments in conservation and reforestation. This environmental intervention was closely linked to the conceptualisation of the processes of environmental change and helped establish the roots of environmentalism. A Millennium Forest project was established in 2002 to replant part of the lost Great Wood and is now managed by the Saint Helena National Trust.

Although this work is, Latin names aside, entirely in French, St. Helena is a British Overseas Territory in the south Atlantic Ocean.

The value of the Aquatic Code is twofold: firstly, the sanitary measures recommended are the result of consensus among the Veterinary Authorities of OIE Members, and secondly, it constitutes a reference within the WTO SPS Agreement as an international standard for animal health and zoonoses of aquatic animals, as well as a key standard for the prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases.

The 2017 Aquatic Code is arranged in sections as follows: Section 1 includes chapters on notification of OIE listed diseases, criteria for listing aquatic animal diseases, OIE listed diseases and surveillance; Section 2 includes chapters on import risk analysis; Section 3 includes chapters on the quality of aquatic animal health services; Section 4 includes chapters on general recommendations for disease prevention and control; Section 5 includes chapters focused on topics relating to trade measures, import and export procedures and certification; Section 6 includes chapters on the control of hazards in aquatic animal feed and responsible and prudent use of antimicrobial agents in aquatic animals; Section 7 includes chapters on welfare of farmed fish during transport and killing; Sections 8 to 11 include disease specific chapters for OIE listed diseases of amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs and fish, and are designed to prevent the disease in question being introduced into the importing country, taking into account the nature of the commodity and the aquatic animal health status of the exporting country.

The 2017 edition includes updates of the table of contents and glossary, and revised text included in Chapter 1.1. Notification of diseases and provision of epidemiological information and Chapter 5.1. General obligations related to certification. Chapter 4.3. Disinfection of aquaculture establishments and equipment has been extensively revised and the title amended accordingly. Chapter 9.2. Infection with yellow head virus genotype 1 has been amended to clarify the scope of this chapter and the title revised accordingly. In addition, some minor consequential amendments have been made in Articles 1.4.3., 1.5.2., 2.1.4., 4.2.3. and 4.6.3. to ensure that the use of ‘vector’ is consistent with the new definition of ‘vector’.

Provides timely and relevant information to allow early warning for rapid response to reduce the spread and mitigate the impact of disease.

This practical handbook is intended to be used mainly by Veterinary Services or other competent authorities, their staff and experts as a tool for strengthening the design, implementation and evaluation of surveillance systems for diseases of relevance for terrestrial animals in their country. Reflects the contribution of experts in surveillance methodology from across the world. Recognising the diversity of animal husbandry and other situations in Member Countries and the dynamic nature of animal health, the document presents a flexible framework for integrating surveillance approaches that meet both national and international needs and that should remain relevant as surveillance evolves to embrace new challenges and opportunities.

Veterinary services complying with OIE standards on quality are a cornerstone for effective passive and active surveillance activities, as well as efficient public-private partnerships between official and private veterinarians and animal owners, hunters and rangers in conservation areas.

Presented in individual chapters, the species accounts include complete information about each fish's distribution, habitat use, reproduction, development, migratory patterns, prey, and predators and other natural enemies. The species accounts are illustrated and include lifecycle calendars, tables, and charts highlighting key information. Introductory chapters provide the general characteristics of the temperate ichthyofauna and explain the authors' methodology.

Featuring new information based on more than 76,000 samples, novel long-term data, and an exhaustive analysis of more than 1,800 references, this invaluable resource is a complete compendium on estuarine fishes of the Western North Atlantic.

2005. 3 volumes. 24cm. Pp.xv, 382; xvii, 405; xv, 399. Photos & figures. Softbound.

Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decade, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year and around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, and the recent rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.

This third revised and enlarged French edition of P.N. Acha and B. Szyfres’s original work, Zoonoses et maladies transmissibles communes à l’homme et aux animaux, comes just at the right time. It updates both the earlier French edition and the English edition 'Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals' (PAHO/WHO, 2003) and contains information obtained using new technologies, incorporating the findings of scientific progress in various fields. The wealth of documentation contained in this volume will be of interest to a broad audience.

0520268687 New
 
2011. 29cm. Pp.408. Hardbound.

Historical Biogeography of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes explores the evolutionary origins of a unique ecosystem. The chapters address central themes in the study of tropical biodiversity: why is the Amazon basin home to so many distinct evolutionary lineages? What roles do ecological specialization, speciation, and extinction play in the formation of regional assemblages? How do dispersal barriers contribute to isolation and diversification? Focusing on whole faunas rather than individual taxonomic groups, this volume shows that the area’s high regional diversity is not the result of recent diversification in lowland tropical rainforests. Rather, it is the product of species accumulating over tens of millions of years and across a continental arena.

“A major contribution to our understanding of multiple aspects of the Neotropical freshwater fish fauna. The book will be of interest not only to ichthyologists, but also to a broader audience of researchers working on freshwater organisms and general biogeographic patterns.”-- Richard P. Vari, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution.

This completely updated fifth edition of Bacterial Fish Pathogens is a comprehensive discussion of the biological aspects of the bacteria which cause disease in farmed and wild fish. Since the 4th edition was published in 2007, there has been an upturn in the application of molecular approaches to taxonomy, diagnosis and vaccine development. New pathogens, e.g. Aeromonas schubertii, have been described. Also, there has been the emergence of diseases caused by bacteria which have not been cultured, and which have been equated with new taxa, i.e. ‘Candidatus’. Consideration is given to all the bacterial fish pathogens, including primary pathogens and opportunists.

Contents : 1. Introduction.- 2 Gram-positive bacteria (anaerobes and lactic acid bacteria’).- 3. Aerobic Gram-positive rods and cocci.- 4. Aeromonadaceae representatives (motile aeromonads).- 5.

1118935586 New
 
2016. 28cm. Pp.192. Hardbound.

Electricity in Fish Research and Management, second edition provides a comprehensive discussion of the uses of both electricity and electrical principles in fishery management and research. It covers electric fishing (including theory, equipment, data analysis and practical factors affecting efficiency), fish barriers, fish counters and fish welfare issues.

The book concentrates on Electric Fishing (or Electrofishing); an internationally accepted and widely used procedure for sampling fish. Over the past 50 years electric fishing has become a standard method for fishery studies and management e.g. establishing population densities and abundance. However, due to the potential hazards of the method (both to operators and fish) there is a continuing need to develop and promote best practice guidelines.

The author has studied fish ecology for 40 years and understands the need for information that reaches out to all levels of understanding in the field. In this book theory and practice is explained using non-technical language and simple equations. It brings depth as well as breadth in both information and principles behind the methods and should be an invaluable tool to both fisheries managers and researchers.

80 Beckham, Tammy (editor) Biological Threat Reduction
9295108310 New
 
2017. 29cm. Pp.300. Softbound.

Reviews the use of animal pathogens and zoonotic agents as bioweapons. More specifically, it examines their use throughout history, explores current disease trends and threats and evaluates the use of animals as sentinels for early detection of outbreaks affecting animals and/or humans, whether the outbreaks be of natural, accidental or deliberate origin.

Animal diseases, including zoonoses, have the potential to negatively impact economies, the environment, society, and public health. It is currently thought that over 60% of human diseases and over 80% of agents that can be used for bio-terrorism are of animal origin. The emergence and spread of animal diseases, including zoonoses, is at an all-time high. This increase in disease emergence and spread is thought to be the result of an increase in intensive farming, global travel, human pressure on ecosystems and social unrest.

This review also looks at the potential impacts of animal pathogens, including zoonotic agents, on economies, social unrest, food security, and public health. It reviews current frameworks for an international response to a biological event and explores current United Nations mechanisms for response to an alleged use of biological agents. This volume also explores technological advances for early detection, surveillance, and response to a disease event, and concludes by discussing systems for strengthening global biosecurity and resilience and considering methods of ensuring the sustainability of these systems.

81 Bellinger, Edward G & David C Sigee Freshwater Algae : Identification, Enumeration and Use as Bioindicators, Second Edition
1118917162 New
 
2015. 26cm. Pp.296. Colour photo-plates, micrographs, keys to species. Hardbound.

This is the second edition of Freshwater Algae ; the popular guide to temperate freshwater algae. This book uniquely combines practical information on sampling and experimental techniques with an explanation of basic algal taxonomy plus a key to identify the more frequently-occurring organisms. Fully revised, it describes major bioindicator species in relation to key environmental parameters and their implications for aquatic management.

This second edition includes:

the same clear writing style as the first edition to provide an easily accessible source of information on algae within standing and flowing waters, and the problems they may cause

the identification of 250 algae using a key based on readily observable morphological features that can be readily observed under a conventional light microscope

up-to-date information on the molecular determination of taxonomic status, analytical microtechniques and the potential role of computer analysis in algal biology

upgrades to numerous line drawings to include more detail and extra species information, full colour photographs of live algae – including many new images from the USA and China

Bridging the gap between simple identification texts and highly specialised research volumes, this book is used both as a comprehensive introduction to the subject and as a laboratory manual. The new edition will be invaluable to aquatic biologists for algal identification, and for all practitioners and researchers working within aquatic microbiology in industry and academia.

82 Belluco, S ; V. Cibin, R. Davies, A. Ricci & A. Wales (editors) A review of the scientific literature on the control of Salmonella spp. in food-producing animals other than poultry
9290449829 New
 
2015. 30cm. Pp.81. Softbound.

Salmonella species are prominent and enduring pathogens worldwide, which represent a challenge for both animal and human health. This review provides an extensive summary of the prevalence, epidemiology and control of Salmonella in non-avian livestock, as well as a review of attribution studies relating it to human disease.

This organism has many attributes that can confound simple approaches to its control on farms. These include a varied repertoire in antigenic structure and expression and in the extent and various manifestations of infection (serovars). Variation is also seen in the degree of adaptation by serovars to particular host species, and these differences can greatly affect the approaches, and success, of control regimes for livestock. The varied pathways implicated in the faecal-oral route of Salmonella infection in humans include the consumption and handling of contaminated food and water, direct animal contact and interpersonal spread. The attribution of sources for cases of salmonellosis is a developing field, with important implications for the focus of resources for prevention and control.

83 Beltz, Lisa A Bats and Human Health: Ebola, SARS, Rabies and Beyond
1119150035 New
 
2017. 26cm. Pp.300. Colour photos, figures, tables, bibliography. Hardbound.

This book examines the multifaceted interactions between bats and humans, and how each affects the other both positively and negatively.

Dr. Beltz's approach to this title includes a more comprehensive, balanced take on bats' role in human health and welfare - she aims to not only present them as disease carriers, but examines their positive contributions to human welfare from an ecological standpoint - bats pollinate valuable crops, and keep mosquito populations in check (subsequently limiting the spread of mosquito-borne disease like dengue, hemorrhagic and yellow fevers, malaria, and West nile and St. Louis virus encephalitis). Their guano is a key ingredient in fertilizer, and they also play a role in seed dispersal, which is key in restoring disturbed ecosystems.

Human activity also impacts bat populations, both in terms of population and species distribution. By altering bat habitats and food sources, humans have displaced bat populations and decreased colony numbers and sizes. Climate change has negatively affected bat populations, as well as the creation and utilization of wind turbines as sources of alternative energy, by displacing bats from their habitats.

The text itself is organized into seven sections, beginning with an introduction covering history and societal views on bats, descriptions of various groups of bats and their biology, etc. The second section discusses different bat-borne diseases that affect human and other animal populations, including SARS, Ebola, and rabies. The third section delves into bats and human activity, and the fourth section relates bat activity to incidence of arboviral diseases. The fifth section shifts to man-made factors that influence bat populations, and the sixth focuses on bat-human interactions by geographical region. The final section summarizes the text and posits different ways in which beneficial interactions between bats and humans may be increased and harmful interactions minimized by encouraging proximity to bats.

2000. 26cm. Pp.532. Hardbound.

Referred to in the Bible, pictured on the wall-friezes of ancient Egyptian tombs, and a subject of fascination for generations of scientists, the tilapias (Cichlidae: Tilapiini) have featured in the diet and culture of humankind for thousands of years. The present century has seen their spread from Africa throughout the tropics and sub-tropics, largely for food and fisheries purposes.

Tilapias, Biology and Exploitation attempts to pull together our knowledge of this important group, their biology and fisheries and aquaculture, in a single volume, something that has not been done comprehensively for nearly two decades.

A succession of chapters by acknowledged authorities covers evolution, phylogenetic relationships and biogeography, reproductive biology, mating systems and parental care, diet, feeding and digestive physiology, environmental physiology and energetics, the role of tilapias in ecosystems, population dynamics and management, genetics, seed production, nutrition, farming, economics and marketing.

This book is aimed at biologists, fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and all interested in aquatic ecology.

English translation, 2009, by M.J.P van Oijen, G.M.P. Loots & F.J.G. Limburg. 25cm. Pp.xii,317. Colour plates. Softbound.

"Ichthyologiae Archipelagi Indici Prodromus. Volumen I. Siluri" by Dr Pieter Bleeker (1858) has been translated completely from Dutch and Latin to English. In contrast to the original publication, the translation does contain the illustrations that were ready in 1858, but could not be included, as at that time facilities for printing coloured plates were lacking in Batavia (Jakarta, Indonesia).

"Ichthyologiae Archipelagi Indici Prodromus. Volumen I. Siluri" is a compilation of all Bleeker’s papers on catfishes from 1845 to 1858 and a review of all publications on this group of fishes by other ichthyologists up till 1858.

In this voluminous publication Bleeker mentions all catfish species known at the time, gives keys to genera and species, and extensive descriptions for 99 species occurring in the Indonesian archipelago. All these species are figured. The descriptions include distribution and habitat, and remarks on reproduction, fishery and consumption. Detailed information on the morphology of the described specimens make this work indispensable for recognizing types of the species in the Bleeker collection. A complete list of all 210 ichthyological papers Bleeker published up till 1858 is included.

Bleher's Discus Volume 2 documents the entire history of discus breeding, from its first beginnings to the start of 2011, in finest detail, illustrated with over 4000 photos and with a special foreword by Jack Wattley. The book covers Discus breeding worldwide, its history, breeders, methods and variants.

Chapter 6 features a previously unpublished manuscript by Eduard Schmidt-Focke (1913-1998), to whom the book is dedicated posthumously. "The Doctor" is universally regarded as the father of modern discus breeding, as many, if not the majority, of the cultivated forms that exist today originate from him. His forms are documented in text and pictures, from his early days right through the end.

The same chapter also immortalises other pioneers of discus breeding worldwide, their history and achievements, as well as modern discus breeders all over Europe, the Americas, Africa and the Antipodes. And, of course, in Asia, nowadays the 'capital' of discus breeding; all the cultivated forms have been researched in detail, revealing the ancestry of the so-called Pigeon Blood and the other multitudinous variants and sports, often with "fantasy names".

More than 700 breeders from 50 countries are included, with details of their set-ups, methods, secrets, and tricks - the vast majority hitherto unpublished anywhere in the world. The chapter concludes with a detailed and easy to understand overview of the optimal breeding methods for both wild-caught discus and cultivated forms, based on the author’s extensive knowledge accumulated over several decades.

Chapter 7 presents the discus variants cultivated worldwide, with details of their breeders, in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia, and includes the latest cultivated forms and new wild-caught variants discovered since the publication of volume 1 in 2006.

The book concludes with the latest information on the classification of cultivated forms, plus updates on taxonomy and distribution.
