Bringing together annotated images and anatomical terms, this reference book is a unique combination of a practical, clinically oriented textbook and pictorial atlas of avian anatomy.
Containing very high quality photographs, including histological and radiographic images and schematic diagrams, this edition focuses on ornamental birds and poultry. Among the various species examined are chickens, ducks and geese, as well as budgerigars, psitaccines and many others. In addition, wild bird species such as the common buzzard and falcon are taken into account and raptors are featured in a dedicated new chapter.
Translated from Anatomie der Vögel, first published by Schattauer, Avian Anatomy is an ideal book for veterinary practitioners and students.
