Zoo Zen List of subject issues from 1985 - 2009

Zoo Outreach Organisation Z*information Exchange Notebook — better known as Zoo Zen— has also been coming out monthly since the last seventeen years. Instead of an index to the contents of Zoo Zen, we are simply publishing the list of subject matter for the last seventeen years.Readers who want contents of particular issues may write and request them. Zoo Zen actually started a few months before Zoo’s Print and was intended to provide a solution to the personnel problem Indian zoo personnel face of obtaining up to date materials in a timely and affordable manner. Zoo zen began as a monthly compendium of materials from foreign zoo which are appropriate but not readily available in India .   For the past few years, Zoo Zen has also served as a means of publishing longer material from India, such as long Reports, thesis, dissertation, etc., or material that is out of date.

Zoo Zen is so named because it seeks to promote the “zen” of zoo keeping and conservation biology, the art and science, discipline and practice of animal care and conservation.

*A Single asterisk indicates a publication that is original material and not published anywhere else.

** A double asterisk beside the title of an indicates that this material may not so relevant nows as when it was originally reproduced, either because new material has superseeded it (a later issue of Zoo Zen) or because we feel we have published the subject matter more completely in Zoos/E Print.We are advising that people do not order the issues with a double asterisk.
