"The Biology and Identification of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of
Rabbits of the World" is a taxonomic summation of a damaging
intestinal parasite found in rabbits and transmissible to other
species, including humans. This book conceptually and historically
summarizes the world's literature on the parasite and also provides
a quick guide to isolation procedures, identification, strategies
for management, and available chemotherapy. It is a vital source of
knowledge about coccidiaOCOs real and potential transmission to
humans, which can lead to dangerous health problems, like severe
dehydration, vomiting, lethargy and even death.
Coccidiosis is an intestinal disease that affects several
different animal species, including canines and humans, and is one
of the most prevalent protozoal infections in North America. The
causative agent is a protozoan that has the ability to multiply
rapidly and cause major damage in the intestinal wall, rupturing
the cells of the intestinal lining. The final stage, the oocyst, is
extremely resistant to environmental stress and is difficult to
completely remove from the environment. Oocysts are frequent
contaminants of feed and water and when the sporulated oocysts are
ingested by other animals, they start the life cycle over in the
new host. With the demand for rabbits in scientific research and
for rabbit meat for human consumption increasingly globally each
year, rabbits are of epidemiologic significance for laboratory
workers, university researchers, veterinarians, pet owners, and
Evaluates the scientific and scholarly merit of each of the
publications written about coccidian from every rabbit species,
providing a complete historical renditionA treatise for the
identification of coccidia and their treatment as neededWritten in
a style that can be understood by most educated lay persons and
laboratory workersWritten by the first ranked author team among the
world-class parasitologists who study coccidiaCombined in one
single source, this book follows the gold standards in coccidian
biology and identificationBrings all that information together in
one volume and solves the problems faced by researchers,
veterinarians, students and others in trying to find and navigate
through this scattered literature"
