Published on behalf of the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare, the UFAW Handbook on the Care and Management of Laboratory and Other Research Animals is the seminal reference on the care of laboratory and captive animals and 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.

* 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.
