A book compiling up-to-date practical knowledge on virus infections in swine has become a necessity. This book places the emphasis on useful facts about the different virus diseases in swine, their laboratory diagnosis and prophylaxis. The organization of chapters within the book is strictly hierarchical and follows virus taxonomy. A short family description precedes the first chapter discussing an infection caused by a virus from this family. This volume, and indeed the whole series, is intended as a work of reference for the non-virologist, as well as an assessment of the present state of knowledge on infection for the generalist. It will prove invaluable to research workers in clinical virology, staff working in diagnostic laboratories, veterinarians working in the pig industry, practising veterinarians, and veterinary students.
