Zitat von: amazon.deZoo Animals: Behaviour, Management, and Welfare
Geoff Hosey, Vicky Melfi und Sheila Pankhurst

The keeping of zoo animals is 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 challenges they face in trying to feed, manage, 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 and use an evidence based approach 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. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to
accompany Zoo Animals features: For all readers: * Updates - surveys of key
developments in the field * Multiple choice questions with instant feedback, to aid self-
assessment For registered adopters of the book: * Figures from the book in electronic
format and full colour, available for download
