Summary

 The American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), founded in 1957 to encourage education, training, and research in laboratory animal medicine, establishes standards of training and experience for veterinarians professionally involved with the care and health of laboratory animals.  Currently, ACLAM has certified over 525 veterinarians as active specialists in the field of laboratory animal medicine. This project is the next project to join our long running relationship of publishing book series with ACLAM.  The proposed book will be a single volumed work, covering the rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil and other minor rodents often used in research.  The book will be arranged in sections by speciesand will include basic biology, anatomy, physiology, behavior, infectious and uninfectious diseases, husbandry and breeding, common experimental methods, and use of the specie as a research model.  The Laboratory Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Hamster, and Other Rodents will be a combination of previous published works and new material.  The Laboratory Rabbit, The Laboratory Guinea Pig, and The Laboratory Hamster have been in print for nearly twenty years.  The previous material will serve as an outline for the structure of the book, while the single volume publication of updated research and studies will become the standard reference in the area.  Numerous leaders in the field and members of ACLAM have already agreed to contribute to this work The primary audience for this work is biomedical researchers, laboratory animal veternarians, and other professionals engaged in laboratory animal sciencem, as well as, academic and research libraries.    Additinally there is potential in biodefense research, as many of the species are currently used in federally-directed efforts, and with researchers studying diabetes, as many of the species covered in this book are models used in diabetes research. A new gold standard publication from the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine series One stop resource for advancements in the humane and responsible care of: rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, chinchilla, deer mouse, kangaroo rat, cotton rat, sand rat, and degu Includes up-to-date, common experimental methods Organized by species for easy access during bench research
