2017. 30cm. Pp.350. Softbound.Presents what is currently considered best practice in the use of economics in animal health, and looks at where economics could be incorporated into animal health investments and programmes to ensure that the allocation of resources is both proportionate and timely. Understanding the socio-economic circumstances in which animal diseases emerge, are maintained and spread, is both a part of economic impact assessments and a basis for multidisciplinary assessments of animal health interventions. Such assessments need to consider animal welfare a... View more info

2015. 2 volumes. 30cm. Softbound.Volume 1 focuses on the most important arthropod vectors (insects and ticks) and describes their taxonomy, biology, competence and development. It begins by defining ‘vector’, ‘vector-borne disease’ and ‘emerging disease’ and provides explanations that are in line with the OIE understanding of these terms. The zoonotic risks of infections transmitted by arthropod vectors are also discussed, as is the genetic resistance of certain vertebrate hosts to infection. In addition, this volume considers the influence of climatic and anthropogenic cha... View more info

2016. 30cm. Pp.300. Softbound.Two-thirds of the world’s agricultural land is grassland, either because these areas have limited rainfall or because the terrain is mountainous. Most of these semi-arid and high-altitude ecosystems are not suitable for growing crops, so they are predominantly used for various types of mobile livestock husbandry. Such systems are the only way that these grasslands can become a source of human nutrition, as humans cannot digest grass cellulose. Extensive pastoral livestock production is, therefore, the most productive use of these lands. Moreover, in addi... View more info
