Other entries cover influential individuals in the zoo world; institutional topics such as zoo design, structure, science and methodology; and important issues affecting zoos, such as ethics, education, and conservation. An international team of more than 250 advisers and contributors has been involved in the preparation of this landmark work.a Winner of the 'Outstanding Reference Source' award for 2001 American Library Association
