Overview


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 zoos face in trying to feed, breed and keep healthy the animals in their care? How do they play their part in conserving biodiversity?

Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management and Welfare addresses the key questions surrounding the keeping of zoo animals, 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It is surprising that it has taken this long for someone to write a comprehensive book on zoo animals. With the voluminous, yet pithy, contribution, Hosey et al. have invaded an unoccupied niche. Given the quality of the work, I predict that this invasion will take root and grow, finding its way to the shelves of most biologists and researchers who work in zoos. Readers will enjoy having everything they ever wanted to know about zoo animals in a single volume."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
