Volume I : Bacterioses and mycoses ; Volume II : Chlamydioses, rickettsioses and viroses ; Volume III : Parasitoses (sold together) Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decades, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year; around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. Recent West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, or the present rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe, bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.
The third French edition of P.N. Acha and B. Szyfres’s original work, Zoonoses et maladies transmissibles communes à l’homme et aux animaux, considerably enriched in comparison with the second edition, thus comes at the right time. It contains information obtained using new technologies, and incorporates the findings of scientific progress in various fields.The wealth of documentation contained in this volume will be of interest to a broad French-speaking audience.
