This publication is produced as part of an EU Concerted Action project: "Pathology and Ecology of the Genus Clostridium in Humans, Animals and Foodstuffs: Identification, Epidemiology and Prophylaxis (Genus Clostridium». This project is funded under the EU Quality of Life programme. The purpose of the book is to propose as much an overview as a summary of technical approaches in the following: clinical and necropsy diagnosis of clostridial diseases, collection of appropriate specimens for routine diagnostic laboratories, classical and molecular identification and toxintyping of clostridia, confirmation of problems of food spoilage by different clostridial species and specific food poisonings caused by C. botulinum and C. perfringens in humans. This book should be of considerable relevance to technical, medical and scientific staff members of laboratories working in the fields of clostridial diseases of animals and humans and of clostridial food microbiology.
