9780199693528: Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management, and Welfare

The keeping of zoo animals has become a central tool in the conservation of some of the world's most fascinating, yet threatened, species. But how do zoos operate on a day-to-day basis? What are the key problems they face in trying to feed, breed, and keep healthy the animals in their care? How can they play their part in conserving biodiversity?

Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management and Welfare addresses the key questions surrounding the keeping of exotic animals in captivity, and reveals how we can apply our ever-growing understanding of animal behaviour to ensure zoo animals are managed as effectively as possible.

Drawing on their extensive experience of zoo research, practice, and teaching, the authors blend together theory with a broad range of both mammalian and non-mammalian examples to give a highly-readable overview of this burgeoning field. Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management, and Welfare is the ideal resource for anyone needing a thorough grounding in this subject, whether as a student or as a zoo professional.

Review:


"This is a much welcomed second edition of this popular volume with revisions and fresh insights into what has become the essential textbook in this field, not only for those studying various animal-related disciplines but also all of those interested in how zoos operate to meet the multiple roles required and expected of them. ... The presentation of topics is clear and highly readable, making it easy to search for information on a wide range of subject matter, which has been well referenced with a sound provision of further resources for those seeking additional material on a particular topic." --The Quarterly Review of Biology


"It is written in a lively and accessible style, and covers every aspect of zoo animal management, from basic biology to legislation and record keeping. It is highly readable and scientifically well grounded." --The Biologist
