These proceedings present the latest achievements and developments within the scientific community of fur animal research organised by the International Fur Animal Scientific Association (IFASA). The book contains papers on the following topics: nutrition, feeding and management, health and disease, breeding, genetics and reproduction, behaviour and welfare and a theme on 'WelFur for mink and foxes'. The scientific results presented do not only come from traditional mink producing countries, but also from countries with more recent developments in fur animal production. The scientific community in the field of fur animal production is small, but the biologic diversity and thus the need for scientifically based knowledge in this area is similar to, or often exceeds, that of other farm animals. In this book, the most diverse and recent advancements in fur animal production were brought together in order to provide a clear overview for all those involved in the fur animal industry.

Now that Helicobacter pylori is generally accepted as a key aetiological agent in gastric cancer as well as the main agent in peptic ulcer, it can claim to be the most important new discovery in clinical gastroenterology of the last decade, and yet there is no up-to-date book available on the subject that is designed primarily for the clinical gastroenterologist. This book aims to fill that niche. It should also be of interest to the basic scientist, to those providing a clinical laboratory service (microbiologists and histopathologists), and to epidemiologists and others involved in clinical research.
