Book Description

11 April 2014 1119967074 978-1119967071 1
The Welfare of Animals used in Research: Practice and Ethics gives a complete and balanced overview of the issues surrounding the use of animals in scientific research.  The focus of the book is on the animal welfare implications and ethics of animals in research. It covers the topics with sufficient depth to show a real understanding of varied and complex subjects, but conveys the information in a beautifully reader–friendly manner. Key features: Provides those who are not working in the field with a reasonable understanding as to why and how animals are used in research. Gives an introduction to the ethical issues involved in using animals, and explains how these are addressed in practice. Details the advances in animal welfare and the use and development of the 3Rs principles, and how these have become fundamental to the everyday use and regulation of animals used in research. The focus is on principles making it suitable for an international audience. This book is a useful introduction to the issues involved in laboratory animal welfare for those who intend to work in research involving animals. It is also useful to prospective animal care staff and animal welfare scientists, and to those involved in ethical review. It will help inform debate amongst those who are not involved in experimentation but who are interested in the issues. Published as a part of the prestigious Wiley–Blackwell – UFAW Animal Welfare series.  UFAW, founded 1926, is an internationally recognised, independent, scientific and educational animal welfare charity.

Product Description


“Overall, the factual description of how animals are used in research balanced by the author’s personal experiences and perspective makes this book highly readable.  ‘The Welfare of Animals used in Research’ is a great addition, which will be essential reading for those working with laboratory animals and of general interest to those new to the field.”  ( Veterinary Record , 12 July 2014)


"The author has produced a wide–ranging and up–to–date overview of how and why animals are used in research, and the ethical and welfare issues that this raises. Our current state of knowledge is clearly explained, together with some excellent examples of the application of the 3Rs to animal research. The author has dealt with a difficult and controversial topic in a balanced manner that will encourage informed debate. This book should be read by all those involved in the use of animals in research and by anyone who has interests or concerns as to how this type of research is conducted." — Professor Paul Flecknell, University of Newcastle, UK
