From the Back Cover
Important changes to this new edition are the inclusion of data on free–living birds, additional chapters on fractures, neonatology, pathology, legislation and poisons, and new sections on health monitoring, captive–breeding and host–parasite relations.
This book reviews all aspects of birds of prey, giving invaluable up–to–date information on diseases and pathology, but also looking at the history of the subject, the origins of terms, the evolution of current thinking and ending with a reliable list of primary references for further reading.
