Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Zoo professionals, activists, conservation biologists, and philosophers present perspectives on the future of zoos and aquariums, the treatment of animals in captivity, and the question of whether the individual, the species, or the ecosystem is the most important focus in conservation efforts, in papers from a March 1992 conference. Other subjects include captive breeding, wild populations, reintroduction, the use of animals in research, and public relations. Includes guidelines designed at the conference. No index.
