Research institutions have or are planning to build, expand and renovate animal research facilities to keep up with the demands of biomedical research caused in part by growth in the use of genetically altered rodents and the upsurge of research in infectious diseases. Properly designed facilities greatly facilitate effective management and high-quality day-to-day animal care that is required to optimally support animal research and testing. There are multiple solutions to address the myriad of factors that influence the design and construction of animal research facilities. There is no “best design applicable for all facilities and arguably not even a single “best design for a given facility. For this reason, Planning and Designing Research Animal Facilities is not intended to be a “how to book. The goal is to cover the basic programmatic requirements of animal research facilities, provide ideas for meeting those requirements while, hopefully, stimulating the creative process in which designers in consultation with those who work in animal research facilities generate even better ideas. That is how progress has been made and will continue to be made. Facilitates communication between the parties involved in planning and designing animal facilities by providing contemporary information, and stimulating creativity that will help lead to wise decisions and advance the knowledge base for planning, design and constructing animal research facilities

Although much is known about the parasites of laboratory animals, information is often lacking and what is available is scattered. It is the purpose of this book to gather what is known in this field so that it is readily accessible to those who need it, and to point out what is not known. The parasites described are those that occur spontaneously. Experimentally induced conditions are mentioned only if they are of special significance. No attempt is made to include the parasites of all domestic and wild animals. As a general rule, those of the common laboratory animals are all included, but for the less common species, only the commonest parasites of the animal species most likely to be used in the laboratory are described. Agents that occur only in domestic animals of agricultural importance are not described, even though these animals are sometimes used in the laboratory, as this information is readily available elsewhere.
