Przewalski's Horse: The History and Biology of an Endangered Species
Przewalski s horse, the only true horse never to have been domesticated, is believed to be extinct in the wild. Experts from around the world come together in this book and offer a complete synthesis of knowledge about the species to date. Topics included are taxonomy, morphology, former geographic distribution, history in captivity, the studbook, genetics, population biology, nutrition, veterinary care, reproduction, and behavior. Implications for management are also included and are especially relevant in light of recent plans to attempt the reintroduction of Przewalski s horses into the wild. This book provides a valuable reference to those charged with managing this endangered species in captivity and implementing its reintroduction.
