Dr Gareth Richards
Editor, CABI Compendium Program
been an Editor in CABI’s Compendium Programme for the past seven years. With a
degree in zoology and following up on my interests in fish (aquarium, sports,
and I like eating them too), I completed my PhD (at Liverpool University, UK) on Gyrodactylus spp. parasites of poeciliid
fishes in 1995.
I started work at CABI the following year where my earlier experience was as a Scientific Information Officer (Animal Health). I then joined the product development team for the Animal Health and Production Compendium (AHPC), and now have responsibility for its ongoing updating and improvement. Since August 2006, I have also been responsible for the updating of the Aquaculture Compendium, first published earlier that year. It’s a real privilege and a pleasure to have an association with these great products that help deliver knowledge to where it really matters and to work with so many experts from around the world who contribute content or advice.
