About this book

The special subject for volume 35 is felids.

Section 1 contains 29 articles dealing with a wide range of cat species from one of the smallest, the Black-footed cat, to the fastest, the Cheetah. Topics reflect increasing concern about the conservation and management of felids with ex situ studies, including the breeding and maternal behaviour of Geoffroy's cats and husbandry, breeding and population development of Rusty-spotted cats, and in situ conservation strategies for the long-term survival of wild felids, such as the Cheetah, the Sumatran tiger and the Arabian leopard. A report on a breeding project for small South American felids in Sao Paulo is also presented. There are five articles which assess the benefits of environmental enrichment and discuss how it can be incorporated into daily husbandry and management procedures. Other articles include basic physiological information, which is essential to developing and applying assisted reproduction techniques and assessing reproductive status, and progress reports on various reproductive research strategies.

Section 2 contains 16 articles, including a comprehensive update on the reproduction of Monitor lizards in captivity, a number of reports on husbandry, behaviour and breeding, a review of the genetic status of Brown bears in Nordic zoos, the introduction of Mhorr gazelle to Bou-Hedma National Park in Tunisia, the establishment of biomedical reference collections and their value to conservation biology, and a description of a new graphic design and information system in the Czech Republic.

The Guest Essay, by Dr John Kelly of The Zoological Parks Board of New South Wales, Australia, looks to the future and suggests which areas of zoo work need to be developed if conservation efforts in the 21st century are to be effective.
