Zoos, aquariums, and wildlife parks are vital centers of animal conservation and management.

For nearly fifteen years, these institutions have relied on "Wild Mammals in Captivity" as the essential reference for their work.

Now the book reemerges in a completely updated second edition. "Wild Mammals in Captivity" presents the most current thinking and practice in the care and management of wild mammals in zoos and other institutions.

In one comprehensive volume, the editors have gathered the most current information from studies of animal behavior; advances in captive breeding; research in physiology, genetics, and nutrition; and new thinking in animal management and welfare.

In this edition, more than three-quarters of the text is new, and information from more than seventy-five contributors is thoroughly updated.

The standard text for all courses in zoo biology, "Wild Mammals in Captivity" will, in its new incarnation, continue to be used by zoo managers, animal caretakers, researchers, and anyone with an interest in how to manage animals in captive conditions.
