Based on an upper-level undergraduate course, explores the nutritional needs of wild mammals and birds. Assumes that students of wildlife biology and related fields have little background in nutrition, so each chapter begins with the basics and proceeds to topics that can challenge advanced students and professionals. Emphasizes the complexity of wildlife feeding compared to that of domestic animals, and the implications for managing animals both in the wild and in captivity. Updated from the 1985 edition.

Research of the past ten years has made it increasingly clear that domestic animals and wild animals differ in their nutritional requirements. Nutritional management, 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 recent insights, especially with regard to wildlife nutrition essential to successful management either in the wild or in captivity.
Zoological garden and laboratory personnel, wildlife biologists, ecologists, animal nutritionists, and veterinarians will benefit from this new edition.
