Feeding and faeces consistency of South American tapir (Tapirus terrestris) at Zurich Zoo


Clauss, Marcus; Aufranc, R; Hatt, J M (2008). Feeding and faeces consistency of South American tapir (Tapirus terrestris) at Zurich Zoo. Zoologische Garten, 77:297-302.

Abstract

The tapir feeding regime at Zurich Zoo was changed from a diet dominated by fruits, vegetables and bread, to a roughage diet based on lucerne hay. Animals became more active, and their faeces consistency improved markedly, so that it now resembles that of free-ranging animals.

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.
