This monograph represents a major study of Malignant Catarrhal Fever in Indonesia and is based on a collaborative research project between Balitvet and James Cook University, supported by ACIAR. Many of the papers were presented at a workshop on MCF held in Indonesia, being contributions from the district investigation centres and provincial veterinary services, as well as from Balitvet scientists. Malignant Catarrhal Fever has been identified by the National Reference Coordinating Committee as a priority problem in the transmigration areas of Indonesia. Although the aetiological agent of MCF has not been identified, a great deal of knowledge has been collected and presented in this monograph, with a strong emphasis on the epidemiological aspects of MCF.
