Agroterrorism, Biological Crimes, and Biowarfare Targeting Animal Agriculture: The Clinical, Pathologic, Diagnostic, and Epidemiologic Features of Some Important Animal Diseases

      This paper is only available as a PDF. To read, Please Download here.
      As a critical component of our national infrastructure, American agriculture is a broad-based, massive economic juggernaut with complex activities extending from the farm to the fork. Animal agriculture in the United States is highly vulnerable to intentional disease introduction. This article examines the clinical, pathologic, diagnostic, and epidemiologic features of foot-and-mouth disease, avian influenza, classic swine fever, and Newcastle disease.
