Ground breaking Handbook of Animal Welfare textbook is published open access

Routledge have published their new Handbook of Animal Welfare, a comprehensive guide on animal welfare, which is available via open access

Combining the expertise of 50 authors – many of whom are world leaders in their fields, the Routledge Handbook of Animal Welfare comprehensively covers animal welfare concerns.

These include those associated with the farming of terrestrial species and fish, transportation, slaughter, the use of animals in laboratories, zoos, entertainment settings, and as companions, working animals and more.

Virtually all contemporary animal welfare issues are covered in depth in the new Handbook of Animal Welfare.

The inclusion of recent topics such as the impacts of climate change on animal welfare and the links between animal exploitation, antimicrobial resistance and pandemics, ensure the the Handbook of Animal Welfare is among the most current in its field.

This textbook also includes coverage on animal ethics, animal law in key regions of the world, stakeholder perspectives, education, communication and human behavioural change.

It is essential reading for policy-makers, researchers and other professionals working in the animal welfare sector, and for students of animal welfare everywhere.

Professor Mark Bekoff, said: “A new book about numerous aspects of animal welfare merits worldwide attention”.

The new 507 page Handbook of Animal Welfare is now freely available “open access” via the Routledge page.
