Listing of  AZA / WCMC APPROVED STUDBOOKS, SSPs and TAGs

            14 April 2001

 

A studbook is a computerized database of the history of a captive population, including birth dates, sex, and genealogies of individuals and a listing of all locations in which each animal has been held. The AZA Population Management Plan seeks to provide basic population management for zoo and aquarium species in order to establish stable, self-sustaining populations for the future.
