About this book

Please note that the ZSL has confirmed that due to the pandemic they have no access to their warehouse with stock. Supply is unlikely until the first quarter of 2021.

There are already signs that research in zoos and aquariums has begun to take on a sense of urgency. Throughout the zoo world, professionals have always been aware of the social, nutritional and welfare benefits to be gained for their animals by a better understanding of the biology of the ‘beasts in their care’ The urgency arises from an increased general awareness of the loss of biodiversity and the urgent need to conserve it, and the impacts of climate change on individual species and habitats, together with the anticipated scale of impact in the future as calculated by the increasing number of significantly more sophisticated climate projections and analyses.

Therefore, ‘Time’ can be considered as the hidden underlying theme running through this volume of the International Zoo Yearbook; time's passage; time's importance; what is done with it; how we are constrained by it; how much time does something take to do; what can be done in time? These important questions are all intrinsic to the articles of this volume.

The second part of this volume contains the regular contributions on developments in the zoo world.
