Essentials of Disease in Wild Animals
by Gary Wobeser

Essentials of Disease in Wild Animals deals with basic subjects such as the nature of disease, what causes disease, how disease is described and measured, how diseases spread and persist and the effects of disease on individual animals and populations.

Essentials of Disease in Wild Animals takes a general approach to health in wild animals, recognizing that disease is one ecological factor among many and that disease can never be considered satisfactorily in isolation.

Rather than focus on individual causative agents and their effect on the individual animal, the emphasis of this book is on why disease occurred, and on the complex interactions that occur among disease agents, the environment and host populations.
