“An important volume for those concerned with animal care, captive maintenance, and the ethics of issues surrounding the maintenance of animals in artificial environments. . . . [It offers] a fascinating overview of how far the discipline of applied animal behavior has advanced in the last twenty years.”—Quarterly Review of Biology

“[This] book is . . . the first to provide a theoretical framework for a science of environmental enrichment. This is still a very young science and much remains to be done. But Second Nature provides an informative introduction, as well as offering some pointers to future developments.”—International Zoo News

Second Nature is a gold mine of information. . . . The editors are leaders in the field and the thirty-eight contributors represent an all-star cast. An excellent book and a must-read.”—BioScience

“This important volume will be of interest to every zoo fan and animal-behavior enthusiast, as well as those concerned with animal welfare.”—Booklist
