Atlas of Avian Hematology
by Alfred Lucas
Edition: 1st., Agriculture Monographs 25, 1961
An atlas of hematology is a picture I took that functions as a dictionary. The subject matter covers not only tlie circulating blood of the adult bird, ]jut also that of the embryo during its incubation from 2 days to hatching, and it includes the developmental stages found in blood-forming organs of both tlie adult and the embryo. The illustrations and text are concerned not only with the appearance of typical blood cells but also with the recognition of the atypical, the unusual, the abnormal, and the false.
It is believed that future investigators of lalood diseases of poultry will rarely find a cell in their preparations that has not been illustrated here, except cells invaded by organisms such as protozoan and other parasites.
