About this book

Comprehensive volume that traces the origins of today's zoos. Begins with a chronologically organized global perspective, and then switches to a geographic perspective about the time of the European Renaissance. Some of the chapters cover the development in individual countries, while others cover regional areas. Sidebars present supplementary information on personalities, events, and wildlife conservation issues. Chapter bibliographies provide important references to regional zoo and aquarium history, and will serve as a valuable point of departure for further study. An appendix contains a chronological listing of the world's zoos and aquariums.
