Hardbound. This volume presents microbiology as the dynamic interplay between microorganisms and their animal hosts resulting in effective production or disease. Various factors which affect that interplay are also considered.The book begins with a consideration of microorganisms constituting normal flora and their role in digestion and the maintenance of health. The mechanisms by which microorganisms cause disease and how the animal host responds are then discussed. Environmental factors influencing the interaction between animal host and microorganism are considered as well as the implications for animal housing. The epidemiology of infectious disease is given considerable attention. The impact of antibiotics on animal production and the problems of antibiotic resistance are discussed, and there is a major section dealing with the implications of animal production for human health.The volume ends with a consideration of the microbial principles invoHoldeman, L.V., Cato, E.P. and Moore, W.E.C., 1977.
