Praise for the first edition: “It is hard to see how anyone with responsibilities under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act could manage without a book such as this.” Michael Balls, review published in Atla “The strength of the book lies in the way Kevin Dolan brings his experience to bear blending information from various sources.” Patrick Sinnett-Smith, review published in RDS News Written by the leading expert in this field, this is the only book providing practical guidance on the legal obligations of caring for laboratory animals. Up-to-date information on all relevant UK legislation and guidelines is given, with the main emphasis being on the interpretation of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986. New to this edition: *Emphasis throughout is now on the practical application of legal controls of the use of animals in research. *Updated where relevant to keep in line with new welfare legislation. *Coverage of current format of application for personal and project licences. *Expanded coverage of Certificates of Designation. *Impact of the Freedom of Information Act is discussed. A vital resource for all those involved with the use of animals in research, and especially those studying for qualifications or licences in this field.

Biomedical research using animals requires administrators and managers who are knowledgeable and highly skilled. They must adapt to the complexity of rapidly-changing technologies, balance research goals with a thorough understanding of regulatory requirements and guidelines, and know how to work with a multi-generational, multi-cultural workforce. Management of Animal Care and Use Programs in Research, Education, and Testing, Second Edition is the extensively expanded revision of the popular Management of Laboratory Animal Care and Use Programs book published earlier this century. Following in the footsteps of the first edition, this revision serves as a first line management resource, providing for strong advocacy for advancing quality animal welfare and science worldwide, and continues as a valuable seminal reference for those engaged in all types of programs involving animal care and use. It has more than doubled the number of chapters in the original volume to present a more comprehensive overview of the current breadth and depth of the field with applicability to an international audience. Readers are provided with the latest information and resource and reference material from authors who are noted experts in their field. Co-publishers on the second edition are: ACLAM (American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine); ECLAM (European College of Laboratory Animal Medicine); IACLAM (International Colleges of Laboratory Animal Medicine); JCLAM (Japanese College of Laboratory Animal Medicine); KCLAM (Korean College of Laboratory Animal Medicine); CALAS (Canadian Association of Laboratory Animal Medicine); LAMA (Laboratory Animal Management Association); and IAT (Institute of Animal Technology).
Laboratory Animal Welfare provides a comprehensive, up-to-date look into the new science of animal welfare within laboratory research. Animals specifically considered include rodents, cats and dogs, nonhuman primates, agricultural animals, avian animals and aquatic animals. The book examines the impact of experiment design and environment on animal welfare, as well as emergency situations and euthanasia practices. Readers will benefit from a review of regulations and policy guidelines concerning lab animal use, as well as information on assessing animal welfare. With discussions of the history and ethics of animals in research, and a debate on contemporary and international issues, this book is a go-to resource for laboratory animal welfare.

Toxicological Survey of African Medicinal Plants provides a detailed overview of toxicological studies relating to traditionally used medicinal plants in Africa, with special emphasis on the methodologies and tools used for data collection and interpretation. The book considers the physical parameters of these plants and their effect upon various areas of the body and human health, including chapters dedicated to genotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, cardiotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and specific organs and systems. Following this discussion of the effects of medicinal plants is a critical review of the guidelines and methods in use for toxicological research as well as the state of toxicology studies in Africa. With up-to-date research provided by a team of experts, Toxicological Survey of African Medicinal Plants is an invaluable resource for researchers and students involved in pharmacology, toxicology, phytochemistry, medicine, pharmacognosy, and pharmaceutical biology. Offers a critical review of the methods used in toxicological survey of medicinal plants Provides up-to-date toxicological data on African medicinal plants and families Serves as a resource tool for students and scientists in the various areas of toxicology

The Sacrifice provides a uniquely detailed account of the sociological context of animal experimentation. Drawing on historical material, media reports and professional debates, interviews with scientists and animal technicians, and ethnographic data from laboratory settings, the authors provide a rich analysis of the complex and changing role of the laboratory animal in the political and scientific culture of the US and the UK.

This book, the first in an annual series, written by academicians scientists, philosophers and others-is not intended exclusively for an imal welfarists and conservationists. Since it is written* by scholars, it will appeal to a wide range of academic and professional readers who are involved with animals for scientific, economic, altruistic, and other reasons. While this first volume cannot cover the entire spectrum of animal welfare science-related topics, it does, in its diversity of con tributions, demonstrate the multi-faceted and interdisciplinary nature of the subject of this new series. Indeed, animals are as much an integral part of society as we are dependent upon them. The many interfaces between us and the billions of animals under our dominion (as well as the environment upon which the welfare of human and non-human animals alike is ultimately de pendent) have their separate features: trapping and wildlife manage ment; laboratory animal research; whaling and fishing; veterinary practice; agriculture and farm animal husbandry; horse racing and the ownership of animal companions; the propagation of captive wildlife and their preservation in the wild; the use of animals as companions and for the purposes of vicarious entertainment.

"Geschichte ist die geistige Form, in der sich eine Kultur über ihre Vergangen heit Rechenschaft gibt" (J. HUIZINGA [208J). In diesem Sinne berichtet diese Ge schichte der Physiologie von den Wegen und Umwegen, Erkenntnissen und Irr tümern, welche in der historischen Entwicklung dieser Wissenschaft von wesent licher Bedeutung gewesen sind. Für die Art der Darstellung waren teils äußere Momente, teils bestimmte Absichten des Verfassers maßgeblich. Auf dem knappen Raum, der zur Verfügung stand, konnten nur die großen Linien des geschicht lichen Werdegangs unter Verzicht auf viele Einzelheiten wiedergegeben werden. Deshalb entfiel auch die Möglichkeit, den Entwicklungsgang spezieller Einzel probleme ausführlich zu schildern, wie es etwa F. LIEBEN  in seiner Ge schichte der physiologischen Chemie getan hat. Ich konnte aber mit guten Gründen in diesem Buche darauf verzichten, da ich kürzlich eine" Entwicklungsgeschichte physiologischer Probleme in Tabellenform" [342b] veröffentlicht habe, in welcher die schrittweise wachsende Einsicht in die Ursachen und die Bedeutung spezieller physiologischer Vorgänge seit Beginn der Neuzeit nach Autor, ,Jahr, Gegenstand und Veröffentlichungsort dargestellt wurde.
