In Clinical Equine Oncology, Derek Knottenbelt will add to his very well-regarded range of equine titles for Elsevier by producing an oncology book that, like his recently published Pascoes Principles & Practice of Equine Dermatology 2e, will have several distinguishing features that will make it of the widest possible appeal. The design and practical features of the dermatology book can and should be applied to the present proposal; together they can be viewed as companion texts.
