This book provides the scientific community working with free-living wildlife a comprehensive resource on the diseases affecting these animals in Europe.  However, it is also a useful resource for wildlife professionals globally as much of the information is applicable regardless of location."  (Doody's, 2 August 2013)

"I have already learned lots while reviewing it, and I would thoroughly recommend this to be on the bookshelf of any vet or biologist with a significant interest in wildlife, conservation or zoological medicine.  In addition, it is also available in electronic format for approximately two-thirds the price, representing not only good value, but also an ideal format for taking into the field where it would be extremely useful."  (Veterinary Record, 23 March 2013)
