Ex situ and in situ sub-populations as parts of interactively managed meta-populations. This concept was already introduced in the zoo species conservation discussion in the s.
Along the boarderlines of their distribution areas some level of genetic exchange took place. Due to human activity, wild subpopulations often became isolated from each other fragmented.
Exchange of genetic material between wild remnant 15 October Prague Figure 3. An increasing number of wild animal populations will require such management.
The captive populations of endangered species consist of regional subpopulations as well, with some exchange between them as explained above. Metapopulation management implies that the in situ components Figure 2 left , as well as the ex situ components Figure 2 right of a given species are considred as part of one entity.
Such exchanges please note that the exchange of one or two individuals per generation is enough to maintain acceptable levels of genetic variability on either side! This concept is irrealistic.

I would like to conclude this paper with four statements: 1. Zoo populations serve many conservation purposes. None of these conservation tasks can be performed without sustainable zoo animal collections. In: A. Hatchwell, L.

Wilcken, Diploid Sorbus species are typically self-incompatible out-crossers 13 , 15 , but Sorbus also contains apomictic polyploids derived from hybridisation 3 , Recent speciation is evident in Sorbus 17 , 18 , 19 and was likely favoured by breeding systems where apomixis is facultative and possibly coupled with triploid self-incompatibility 9.

This infrequent sexual route for gene exchange among otherwise clonal species provides the raw variation for adaptation 20 , whilst apomixis maintains the new gene combinations and enables sympatric speciation 4. However, although SI-PA breeding systems may be responsible for diversification in Sorbus, for the species concerned the proximity of suitable mates in both space and time may threaten population sustainability by constraining seed production.
In Sorbus, many polyploid species have small population sizes and a high degree of endemism, which are both features of conservation priority species Threats to the persistence of rare Sorbus species arise principally from changing land use, browsing by herbivores which also prevent recruitment and competition from invasive non-native plant species Conserving this evolutionarily dynamic group relies on understanding the factors that affect population viability, which include the influence of pollination on seed production.
In order to measure the extent to which pollen limitation constrains seed production in a threatened PA species in Sorbus, we investigated the pollination and breeding system of the slender whitebeam, Sorbus subcuneata Wilmott, which is putatively self-incompatible.
Sorbus subcuneata is a rare triploid species that is endemic to nine sites in Devon and Somerset southwestern United Kingdom , where it co-occurs with six closely related tetraploid congeners and the common diploid S. Sorbus subcuneata typically occurs at low relative density as an understorey tree, so spatial isolation may be a constraint on seed production.
Here, we report an investigation of the breeding system and pollination ecology of S. Consent was not obtained from the University ethical committee because all data used regarding the zoos was either publicly available data or consent was delivered in the form of an e-mail from zoo management personnel.
An Investigation into the Determining Factors of Zoo Visitor Attendances in UK Zoos
The questionnaires were non sensitive and voluntary. Zoo selection Some 55 collections distributed across the UK were included in the study but complete variable sets were available for just The collections also had to be considered generalist collections keeping a variety of taxa.
Census data was collected from CasWeb Census area statistics on the Web encompassing information about the total population, age structure, economic activity and household composition. The boundary data were collected for England at Wards output level. For Scotland and Wales data were collected at the Output Area level.
An Investigation into the Determining Factors of Zoo Visitor Attendances in UK Zoos
The boundary and the census data were joined in ArcGIS so that the required census data could be transferred to the boundary maps of England, Scotland and Wales. This permitted the three boundary data maps of England, Scotland and Wales merged together.
To allow the data to be processed relatively quickly the large boundary data file was converted into point data. The postcodes of the various zoos were used to map the location of the zoos in ArcGIS and allowed the creation of buffering layers for 15 mile c. Fifteen miles c. These distances were chosen to account for any differences in the scale at which demographic factors may have an effect.
Smaller zoos for example may rely upon immediate surrounding areas as opposed to the greater distances in which larger zoos may draw upon. The buffer file was then overlaid onto the boundary data point file and the various demographic attributes for the total population, age structure, economic activity and household composition were calculated in each of the three distance buffer zones for each zoo.
Mapping The location and distribution of the collections were displayed visually using ArcGIS mapping software. The results of this formed a list of over features, which were then reduced into a smaller list of 56 features by adding those that indicated the same meaning together and removing those that were rarely stated from the list. A general measure of animal popularity was deemed more informative than measuring popularity of animals with zoo-goers and much less problematic in terms of potentially confounding factors.
Zoo-goers would potentially be a self selecting group that therefore is not representative of the population in general and would potentially be different for each zoo because visitors have been attracted by animals at the zoo they had chosen to visit. A general population measure is more useful as it potentially allows zoos to understand attractiveness of their collections to the public as a whole, as opposed to solely existing zoo visitors whom individual zoos could relatively easily target themselves.To allow the data to be processed relatively quickly the large boundary data file was converted into point data.

This concept is irrealistic. Thus, in spite of all efforts, we are doing not good at all.
The postcodes of the various zoos were used to map the location of the zoos in ArcGIS and allowed the creation of buffering layers for 15 mile c. Stokes analysed photographs of penguins from four different books, identified the species into eight distinct morpho-species and subjected them to analyses based upon three neotenous features head length to body length ratio, beak length to head length ratio and relative apparent eye size and percentage of warm colour.
Open in a separate window Stokes  studied the appeal of different penguin species but focused upon finer detail features that may make one species more appealing than another. Their joy is the best possible basis for conservationmindedness.
Smaller zoos for example may rely upon immediate surrounding areas as opposed to the greater distances in which larger zoos may draw upon.
