Falconers and managers of captive birds will gain useful information that will promote the understanding and practice of preventative medicine, and field biologists, veterinarians, and rehabilitators will acquire new perspectives on disease and environmental factors that determine the survival of casualty birds and influence population dynamics of wild raptors. Anyone concerned with the welfare of raptors, whether in the wild or in captivity, will benefit from this important volume.Raptor medicine is a specialty within the rapidly advancing clinical science of avian medicine. It embodies age-old traditions of medical management, handed down for thousands of years by the practitioners of the art of falconry, coupled with current and more effective techniques.
