Zoo Yearbook Vol. 45
Research in Zoos
The volume’s first section surveys new strategies of cooperation with Academic Institutions, on a large and small scale - all effective.
Examples of ways to understand better the welfare of our animals are illustrated from a global to a quarantine-pen size perspective. This issue
also focuses on one aspect of reproductive biology, cryopreservation, to bring a more general awareness of the current status of the technology as
it applies to the ‘Frozen Ark’. Two topics of rapidly expanding interest complete this volume. The first explores the pathological and saprophytic
micro-organisms in zoological collections and reveals a world barely glimpsed until now, where basic biological, biomedical, epidemiological or
veterinary viewpoints will be constructive. The last topic attends to the need to understand the foundation of our conservation efforts - demography
and population genetics. New ways of thinking are being generated here.
