Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on an upper-level undergraduate course, explores the nutritional needs of wild mammals and birds. Assumes that students of wildlife biology and related fields have little background in nutrition, so each chapter begins with the basics and proceeds to topics that can challenge advanced students and professionals. Emphasizes the complexity of wildlife feeding compared to that of domestic animals, and the implications for managing animals both in the wild and in captivity. Updated from the 1985 edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
