Abstract

In 2007, two different events for teaching principles in zoo and wildlife medicine and for introducing veterinary students to scientific work were organized, the “Zoo Research Camp 2007” at the Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation, Qatar, and the “First EAZWV Summer School” at Basle Zoo. Apart from support from the hosting facilities, events were organized by the Clinic of Zoo Animals, Exotic Pets and Wildlife of the Vetsuisse Faculty. The two events differed in concept – with more emphasis on research and data evaluation at the ZRC, and on lectures at the Summer School. Both events had in common that a limited group of students convened at a place different from their usual location, in a zoo setting, which was considered the key to their motivation and the success of the events. Here, we describe the two concepts in detail, also explaining the required commitments made by, and the benefits for, the participating hosts or organisations. We hope that other zoos will be open to host similar events in the future.

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.
