Invasive Birds

Global Trends and Impacts

" Enhanced with a full listing of the contributors and their credentials, Invasive Birds: Global Trends and Impacts, collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Colleen T. Downs and Lorinda A. Hart, also features illustrations, an informative introduction, and a nine page index. An ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to professional, governmental, college, and university library Ecology and Zoology collections in general, and Ornithology supplemental curriculum studies lists in particular, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, ornithologists, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject."

Solving Equine Behaviour Problems

An Equitation Science Approach

"Profusely illustrated throughout, Solving Equine Behaviour Problems: An Equitation Science Approach is a thoroughly comprehensive and exceptionally well written, organized and presented manual that should be considered mandatory reading by anyone vested with the responsibilities of horse ownership and/or training. [Also] highly recommended for community, college, and university library."

"Expertly compiled and co-edited by Molly Courtenay (Cardiff University) and Enrique Castro-Sanchez, (Imperial College, London) and exploring all aspects of AMS, Antimicrobial Stewardship for Nursing Practice is underpinned by a competency framework endorsed by scientific and professional societies, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It explains the practices that ensure optimal use of antibiotics for the best clinical outcome, with both minimal toxicity to the patient and minimal impact on subsequent antimicrobial resistance.


The first book that is applied directly to antimicrobial stewardship for nurses, supports standards of proficiency for registered nurses, and can therefore be used by regulators and professional bodies to inform standards of proficiency and guidance, Antimicrobial Stewardship for Nursing Practice covers infection prevention and control, antimicrobial resistance, diagnosis of infection and appropriate antimicrobial use, patient engagement, collaboration between professions and how to implement AMS in nursing practice. Including learning tools such as objectives, practical case studies and questions throughout, as well as lecture slides, this book is an essential read for undergraduate nursing students and specialist nurses worldwide.


An essential and core addition to college and university library Health/Medicine collections, and an ideal textbook for nursing school curriculums."
