Definition of Laboratory Animal Environmental Conditions

  • Emerson L. Besch

Abstract

The health and well-being of animals have generated much interest in recent years, particularly in association with animals used in teaching and research. Consequently, guidelines for the care and use of laboratory animals have been established (33). Animal welfare has also been the subject of both federal legislation (2, 3) and regulation (4).
