WILDLIFE. An electronic encyclopaedia and a library of electronic books and documents providing information on the natural history, health and management of captive and free-ranging wild animals. The Wildpro® Electronic Library contains more than 200 documents ranging in size from single page factsheets or pamphlets to whole books such as the classic 1910 text “Elephants and Their Diseases” (G.H. Evans), the “Field Manual of Wildlife Diseases” (National Wildlife Health Center, USGS) and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s “Wetlands, Wildlife and Industry: a manual of principles and practice.”

The WAHID Interface provides access to all data held within OIE’s new World Animal Health Information System (WAHIS). It replaces and significantly extends the former web interface named Handistatus II System. A comprehensive range of information is available from: -Immediate notifications and follow-up reports submitted by Member Countries in response to exceptional disease events occuring in these countires as well as follow-up reports about these events, -Six-monthly reports describing the OIE-listed disease situations in each country -Annual reports providing further background information on animal health, on laboratory and vaccine production facilities, etc. To start, select one of the headings on the left. You can then explore available information: -by country (or group of countries), -by disease, -focusing on control measures, or -comparing the animal health situation between two countries.

More than 27 million citations and abstracts for articles published in approximately 8,400 journals in medicine, life sciences, health administration, veterinary medicine, nursing, molecular biology and genetics. PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine on the NCBI platform.
