This dictionary is intended as a guide to the terminology used
in a wide range of animal-related programmes of study including
agriculture, animal care, animal management, animal production,
animal welfare, veterinary nursing, wildlife conservation and zoo
biology. In total it contains over 5,300 entries. It contains a
wide range of terms used in the fields of veterinary science,
physiology and zoology, as students whose primary interests are
animal welfare or zoo biology also need to have some understanding
of disease, how animal bodies function and how animals are
classified. It also contains some legal terms, and reference to
some legal cases, to help students understand how the protection,
use and conservation of animals is regulated by the law. Some
people, famous animals, literature and films have influenced the
way we think about, and behave towards, animals. For this reason,
the book includes references to important books about animals,
famous animals who have starred in films or been the subject of
scientific studies, along with short biographies of famous
scientists and others who have studied animals or established
conservation or animal welfare organisations.
