View the Table of Contents

The second edition of the Pictorial Guide to Traditional Management, Husbandry and Diseases of the One-Humped Camel, is an upgrading and extension of the 2007 edition of the Pictorial Guide to Traditional Management, Husbandry and Diseases of the One-Humped Camel. Over 500 pictures have been added to the 2nd edition and many poor quality pictures were replaced. As was the case on the 1st edition, the effort has required a considerable amount of work and interactions with camels and camel nomads.

"This book includes more than 1500 illustrations with captions giving detailed information on the races, conformation, breeding, animal husbandry, rearing practices, diseases, slaughter and post-mortem examinations. This is an important contribution to camel sciences."
