Furthermore, several different agents of disease, some newly discovered have been causing increasing concern in recent years in many parts of the world. This book contains separate chapters on viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, mites, nematode and insect parasites, non-infectious diseases and the treatment of diseases. The contents are a thorough revision of the previous edition and incorporate much new information, especially with respect to viruses, bacteria, fungi and mites. Specific organisms, such as the mite "varroa jacobsoni" and secondary diseases resulting from its presence, are considered in detail.
