An exploration of the different functions of a zoo through the eyes of 10 of the world's highest regarded zoos - including London and Whipsnade, Frankfurt, Barcelona and Washington - and from the earliest recorded history to the high-tech conservation of the late 20th-century.
Written by a noted authority on natural history, this vibrantly illustrated volume offers readers both a historical appreciation of zoos and a new understanding of their increasingly important role in saving endangered species.
