The Oxford Textbook of Zoonoses comprehensively provides a systematic, cross disciplinary approach to the science and control of all zoonoses - diseases naturally transmissible between vertebrate animals and man.

Written by international specialists in human and veterinary medicine, and divided into three sections along the lines of bacteriology, parasitology, and virology, the textbook chapters describe the epidemiology of diseases, alongside strategies for prevention and control. Each chapter from the first edition has been updated for the second edition, and the book also includes new chapters on important public health topics, such as interdisciplinary or policy issues, as well as new chapters on emerging zoonoses, including SARS and other important emerging diseases and trends.

The online version of the Oxford Textbook of Zoonoses contains the full text of the print edition (which can be browsed by the contents list or searched), links from references in the text to external sources (via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef), and all figures and illustrations from the print edition, downloadable into PowerPoint.
