Európa  állatkertjei


Könyvtár menüpont az angol nyelvű általános állatkertészeti szakirodalomból igyekszik ízelítőt adni a teljesség igénye nélkül. Az alábbi lista elsősorban olyan régi és új szakkönyvekre koncentrál, melyek viszonylag elérhető áron beszerezhetőek. Néhány elbeszélő jellegű művet szintén a sorok közé illesztettem.
