5m publish books in a range of subject areas, including veterinary medicine, agriculture, aquaculture and animal science and behaviour.

Selected books

Veterinary Ethics

Veterinary Ethics presents a range of ethical scenarios that veterinarians and other allied animal health professionals may face in practice. The scenarios discussed are not only exceptional cases with potentially significant consequences, but often less dramatic everyday situations.

Animal Personality

Animal Personality introduces the fundamentals of personality science and research, describing the history of behavioural testing, and then drills into scientific measurement, recording and statistical analysis of individual personalities in animals.

Dog Bites

Dog Bites aims to bring together expert knowledge of the current situation on dog bites and dog aggression directed at humans from a wide variety of disciplines to provide information to the many people and professions affected by the issue.

Cleaner Fish Biology and Aquaculture Applications

Cleaner Fish Biology and Aquaculture Applications reviews and presents new knowledge on the biology of the utilised cleaner fish species, and provides protocols in cleaner fish rearing, deployment, health and welfare.

Conventional and Organic Farming

Is organic farming better for the environment, human health and crop quality? And crucially can an organic farming system cope with feeding the expanding world population. Examining all the available evidence the author aims to provide an objective analysis of the benefits and the exaggerated and misinterpreted claims surrounding organic farming.

City Farming

City Farming addresses the problems the urban farmer might face and turns them into creative solutions. Years of the author’s experience is distilled into this grower’s handbook of fruit, vegetable and animal small-scale farming, with gardening and produce-making tips you won’t find anywhere else.
