Review

This book is intended for students, research workers and other professional and lay people interested in animal science, veterinary medicine or applied zoology or psychology

Concern for animal welfare is steadily increasing in many countries and behaviour, ethics and welfare have become an established part of the curriculum for students of agriculture and veterinary medicine. This book is a response to this growing interest and the need for a consolidation of the available literature. "Animal Welfare" brings together diverse approaches to the subject, from philosophy through scientific study and measurement, to the implementation of practical solutions to real problems. The contents combine selected readings with critical commentaries from experts in different fields. Most chapters are reviews built around key sources. More information is available on farm animals than on other groups but the principles are usually applicable to all animals. Written by leading experts from Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, the book is aimed at a wide readership.
