Bibliography

This bibliography contains recent English-language materials on wildlife legislation, zoos, and the keeping of exotic species.  The books and articles describe laws of both the United States and other countries. The emphasis in much of the literature is on protecting wildlife, with a few titles also discussing public safety in relation to captive wild animals.
