Abstract

During this century the field of work for zoo veterinarians has dramatically changed. Preventive medicine at herd, group or even species level has gained importance. The therapy of single animals is no longer a priority. On the basis of recent developments progress for the future can be proposed. Effective conservation requires thinking and action by a combination of different specialists. Exchange of information at an international level will be of increasing importance. The continuing specialisation in veterinary and human medicine requires interdisciplinary co-operation. The ethics of research and medical interventions on zoo animals is of concern to the public and it is necessary to publicly advance the arguments for and against. The training of specialized zoo veterinarians should be increased.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
