An Introduction to Zoo Biology and Management

Updated on July 2, 2011

An Introduction to Zoo Biology and Management

In recent years there has been a succession of new books on the Biology and Management of Zoo Animals. In spite of this more are needed. There are gaps in the literature, differing expertise and knowledge. In spite of the number of years that there have been zoos it is still an infant science.

It was Heini Hediger who coined the word 'Zoo Biology' and his book by the same name remains an all time classic and still a 'must read' for those who are serious about a zoo career. Much of it has now been replaced by further knowledge and greater understanding and this can be found in the new Zoo Biology literature.

Zoo Biology refers to the vast range of different disciplines which apply to zoos. Working in a zoo is never boring.

New books are welcomed with both interest and delight. Not only is their the opportunity to learn or remember but the chance to be a little critical too.

An Introduction to Zoo Biology and Management will be useful for everyone working within the zoo world although it is primarily aimed at students who plan to make a career in zoos.

This book will become essential reading and a necessary tome on the bookshelves of serious zoo professionals the world over.

    Hello, hello, - education is the key. This applies to those working in zoos and zoo visitors too. Hopefully zoo staff with a sound zoo education can tech visitors the differences between a good and a bad zoo. Thank you for commenting.

    As you said it is useful for students interested in working in zoos. I hope many people will see it and get encouragement because the way the world goes the animals need all the help they can get which zoos are one of them.
