This multi-disciplinary approach to conservation of endangered species in captivity is organized taxonomically and by scientific discipline. The seven taxonomic groups included are invertebrates; fish, reptiles and amphibians, birds, marine mammals, primates, and other mammals.

This multi-disciplinary approach to conservation of endangered species in captivity is organized taxonomically and by scientific discipline. Within each taxonomic group, four scientific disciplines are explored: conservation, reproductive physiology, behavior, and captive design. Conservation chapters summarize the status of the taxonomic group both in the wild and in captivity.

Series: SUNY Series in Endangered Species. A multi-disciplinary approach to endangered species conservation, organised taxonomically and by scientific discipline. Publisher: State University of New York Press. Seven taxonomic groups are covered - invertebrates; fish; reptiles and amphibians; birds; marine mammals; primates; and other mammals. Within each taxonomic group, four scientific disciplines are explored - conservation; reproductive physiology; behaviour; and captive design. Captive and wild status are given for all groups.

It should be of interest to scientists from various disciplines of biology and behavior, as well as the managers of zoos and wildlife parks. It is a gathering, between two covers, of the knowledge of several eminent scientists who have spent years studying the biology and behavior of Przewalski's horse. - Sharon L. Crowell-Davis, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia.

The World Conference on Breeding Endangered Species in Captivity as an Aid to their Survival (WCBESCAS) is the world's first conference on captive breeding. Started by the Fauna and Flora Preservation Society, due to efforts by the famous naturalist and pioneer of captive breeding Gerald Durrell, the first conference was held in 1972 at Jersey (the location of Durrell's Jersey Zoo, one of the few zoos of the world to practise captive breeding at that time).

This multi-disciplinary approach to conservation of endangered species in captivity is organized taxonomically and by scientific discipline. The seven taxonomic groups included are invertebrates; fish, reptiles and amphibians, birds, marine mammals, primates, and other mammals. Within each taxonomic group, four scientific disciplines are explored: conservation, reproductive physiology, behavior, and captive design.Conservation chapters summarize the status of the taxonomic group both in the wild and in captivity. Reviewed in the reproductive physiology chapters are anatomy, endocrinology and physiology for females and males of the taxonomic group. In the section on behavior the functions of captive animal research, the methods used, and the problems encountered are discussed. And, in examining captive design the authors provide a general historical outline of the philosophies, trends, and scientific issues for the targeted taxonomic group.
