Description of Diagnostic Procedures in Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology

It is now more than 20 years since the first edition of this Diagnostic Procedures in Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology book appeared. In the second, third, and fourth editions, efforts were made to adhere as much as possible to the original purpose of the book, which was to provide a compilation of effective methods and practices for diagnostic veterinary microbiology laboratories both small and large. We have attempted to maintain this purpose in this fifth edition.

Given the rapid increase in knowledge in both diagnostic mycology and bacteriology, it was considered necessary to increase the number of contributors. Although most of these individuals are specialists, they were urged to emphasize procedures that are within the capability of most diagnostic laboratories. Workers who wish to amplify or vary the procedures described will find sources for additional information in the references.
