For years, biologists assumed that the nutritional knowledge gained from domestic animals could be applied directly to wild animals. During the past ten years, however, it has become increasingly clear that domestic animals and wild animals differ in their nutritional requirements. Nutritional management that is beneficial to domestic animals may actually be life-threatening to wild ones. This new edition of "Wildlife Feeding and Nutrition" has been thoroughly updated to reflect the information gained during the last decade, especially those aspects of wildlife nutrition essential to successful management either in the wild or in captivity.
