Giant Pandas : Biology, Veterinary Medicine and Management, Paperback / softback Book

Giant Pandas : Biology, Veterinary Medicine and Management Paperback / softback

Edited by David E. Wildt, Anju Zhang, Hemin Zhang, Donald L. Janssen, Susie Ellis

Description

The giant panda is one of the world's most recognized animals.

With the environment undergoing unprecedented change at a rapid and accelerating rate, can such a highly specialized species survive?

This 2006 book summarizes panda biology and encompasses topics such as reproduction, behaviour, nutrition, genetics and veterinary medicine.

It also provides information on veterinary management, advances in neonatal care, disease detection and prevention and the use of 'assisted breeding' to promote reproduction and preserve genetic diversity, as the females are sexually receptive for only 3 days per year and generally produce twins, but often lose one due to maternal neglect.

This book provides the scholarly knowledge that will help conserve this treasured species in nature, while there is still time.
