Mycoplasmas cause some of the most serious and economically significant diseases in livestock and pose major problems for animal health authorities worldwide. Infection has spread in the last five years to new regions and species, but little effective control is available, particularly in developing countries. This work encapsulates the latest research and development on mycoplasmas in sheep, goats and cattle from laboratories all over the world, describing both conventional diagnostic techniques for growth and identification and newly established procedures such as PCR/DGGE. Molecular typing methods are also covered, specifically for use in mycoplasma fingerprinting as well as up to date reviews on the major mycoplasma diseases including contagious bovine and caprine pleuropneumonias, contagious agalactia and many conditions caused by Mycoplasma bovis.

Mollicutes

i>Mollicutes are a class of simple bacteria characterized by the lack of a bacterial cell wall and their very small genomes (580 kb to 2200 kb). This phylogenetically coherent group contains a broad range of different plant and animal pathogens making it an ideal model for understanding gene function, gene regulation and the evolution of virulence factors in other bacterial pathogens. The recent development of improved tools for manipulating mollicute genomes has transformed research in this area permitting new insights into mollicute molecular and cellular biology. An interesting fact to emerge is that, far from being a simple model of cellular life, these are complex organisms that have adapted to life in a hostile environment through a surprisingly sophisticated variety of ways. In this book acknowledged experts critically review the most recent advances in the evolution, genetics and molecular pathogenesis of these important pathogens. Topics covered include: taxonomy; genomic mosaics; molecular genetic tools for mollicutes; identification and characterisation of virulence genes in mycoplasmas; post-translational modification of proteins; multifunctional cytoadherence factors; the glycocalyx; glycosidase activity; phase and antigenic variation in mycoplasmas; spiroplasma transmission from insect to plants; cytoskeletons organization; gliding mechanism of the Mycoplasma pneumoniae subgroup; biofilm formation by mycoplasmas; host immune responses to mycoplasmas; and emerging antimicrobial resistance in mycoplasmas of humans and animals. An essential book for researchers working with mollicutes and recommended reading for everyone interested in bacterial genomics, bacterial pathogenesis and the evolution of bacterial virulence.

Illustrated with over 1000 color images of the highest quality, Bovine Pathology: A Text and Color Atlas is a comprehensive single resource to identifying diseases in dairy cattle, feedlot cattle, and their calves. With summary text describing key features, the book correlates clinical information with pathology and differential diagnoses. The text covers naked-eye macroscopic appearance, through to microscopic pathology, and the immunohistochemistry of infectious agents and tumor markers. Structured by major organ system, the disease entries follow a consistent format and clarity of display. Serving as an essential reference work for veterinary pathologists who perform bovine necropsies, veterinary residents and students, the book is also practical enough for bovine practitioners who need to investigate sudden death losses of cattle on the farm.

Small animal veterinarians are increasingly taking on caseloads that include farm animals, with cases being presented by local hobby farmers, smallholders, and novelty pet owners. Recognizing this trend, this book provides a quick reference guide for small-animal trained veterinarians in the basics of surgery and treatment of farm animals. Popular animals such as cattle, sheep, goats, camelids and backyard poultry are covered, and basic techniques such as anaesthesia, clinical examination techniques, breeding, surgery and euthanasia are discussed. The book is an essential resource for practicing small animal veterinarians, veterinary and animal management students, for continuing professional development and as a refresher guide.
