Overview


The preservation of genetic diversity and the conservation of rare and endangered species depends on a sound understanding of the fundamental limiting factors in animal survival, which include genetics, disease, nutrition, reproduction, and veterinary care.

The contributors consider four general topics: conservation in the wild, conservation in captivity, conservation and comparative medicine, and government and conservation.
