Auf die Diagnose kommt es an Die Diagnose bestimmt die Therapie und den Behandlungserfolg. Bei der Betrachtung und Befragung des Patienten geht der bekannte Autor und Dozent Giovanni Maciocia von der Situation im westlichen Kulturkreis aus und leitet daraus die Syndromdifferenzierung laut TCM ab, um zu einer wirksamen TCM-Behandlung zu kommen. Das Buch hilft Ihnen , die richtige Bedeutung von Symptomen und Zeichen zu verstehen und richtig zuzuordnen. Es ist auf die tägliche Praxis zugeschnitten und lässt keine Fragen offen. Besonders wertvoll ist es für alle, die ein umfassendes Handbuch zur Syndromdiagnostik suchen. Die verschiedenen Zugänge zur richtigen Diagnose sind so detailliert ausgeführt wie bisher wohl noch in keinem anderen Fachbuch zur chinesischen Medizin. Zahlreiche Fallbeispiele aus der Praxis und ein umfangreicher Anhang mit Glossar, Index und Farbtafelteil ergänzen das Konzept.
This book is intended as an introductory text for students studying a wide range of courses concerned with animal management, zoo biology and wildlife conservation, and should also be useful to zookeepers and other zoo professionals. It is divided into three parts. Part 1 considers the function of zoos, their history, how zoos are managed, ethics, zoo legislation and wildlife conservation law. Part 2 discusses the design of zoos and zoo exhibits, animal nutrition, reproduction, animal behaviour (including enrichment and training), animal welfare, veterinary care, animal handling and transportation. Finally, Part 3 discusses captive breeding programmes, genetics, population biology, record keeping, and the educational role of zoos, including a consideration of visitor behaviour. It concludes with a discussion of the role of zoos in the conservation of species in the wild and in species reintroductions. This book takes an international perspective and includes a wide range of examples of the operation of zoos and breeding programmes particularly in the UK, Europe, North America and Australasia.
