Animal Science & Wildlife Biology

Find Books in the UC Davis Library Collections

Search for print and ebooks:

Searching in a library catalog requires looking for broader topics such as animal genetics or mammal behavior rather than the more specific metapopulation gene flow or cheetah mate selection.

UC Davis theses and dissertations by graduates of either Animal Science, Animal Biology, or Wildlife graduate researchers may be found by searching the following subject headings:  

Dissertations, Academic — University of California, Davis — Animal Biology

OR Dissertations, Academic — University of California, Davis — Animal Science

OR Dissertations, Academic — University of California, Davis — Avian Sciences

OR Dissertations, Academic — University of California, Davis  combined with ANY FIELD search term wildlife*
