About this Book

The seminal reference on the care of laboratory and captive animals, The UFAW Handbook on the Care and Management of Laboratory and Other Research Animals is a must-have for anyone working in this field.  The UFAW Handbook has been the definitive text since 1947. Written for an international audience, it contains contributions from experts from around the world.  The book focuses on best practice principles throughout, providing comprehensive coverage, with all chapters being peer reviewed by anonymous referees. As well as addressing the husbandry of laboratory animals, the content is also of great value to zoos and aquaria. 

Changes for the eighth edition:

  • Revised and updated to reflect developments since publication of the previous edition.
  • New chapters on areas of growing concern, including: the 3Rs; phenotyping; statistics and experimental design; welfare assessment; legislation; training of people caring for lab animals; and euthanasia.
  • All material combined into one volume for ease of reference.

This book is published on behalf of UFAW (The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare), with whom we also publish the UFAW/Wiley-Blackwell Animal Welfare Book Series.  This major series of books provides an authoritative source of information on worldwide developments, current thinking and best practice in the field of animal welfare science and technology.
