Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management and Welfare addresses the key questions surrounding the keeping of zoo animals, and reveals how we can apply our ever-growing understanding of animal behaviour to ensure zoo animals are managed as effectively as possible, without their health and welfare being compromised.
This is the first modern textbook of sensory ecology. It provides an introduction to the key ideas, theories, and examples, describes how sensory systems work, and explores the links between the senses, animal signals, behaviour, and evolution. The book also tackles mechanistic and functional questions, integrating theoretical and empirical work.
