It is widely recognized that the demand for poultry meat and eggs has been increasing substantially in recent years due to the changes in food consumption patterns. The poultry industry has reacted to this increased demand by an expansion of broiler and layer production systems, which in turn has allowed ‘new’ and ‘old’ diseases to emerge and spread. Poultry infectious diseases, technopathy, and even those whose etiology is unknown have increased. Therefore, scientists continuously put in an effort to expand their research and hinder these diseases, limiting the associated vast financial losses to the poultry industry. Modern biotechnological tools are helping poultry production, allowing a faster and precise diagnosis, investigation of pathogenic mechanisms, reconstruction of disease spread and improvement of prevention, and control strategies such as the development of new vaccines, alternative to AGP feed additives, and techniques that are able to overcome the limits of the existing ones.
This Special Issue on “Trends in Poultry Diseases” intends to gather and disseminate the latest data and knowledge on different poultry diseases caused by various microorganisms, managerial practices, and technopathy, taking into account several aspects related to their epidemiology, diagnosis, and control.
