INTRODUCTION

 

Although there is a considerable amount of information available on elephants in data bases it is not readily available in an organized manner to most persons. The references in this publication were obtained from seven different data bases and compiled chronologically, and alphabetically by title, under various general headings. There area number of papers and articles dealing with elephants in the wild, their tracking, number estimation, feeding habits, environmental damage, conflicts with people, etc. Only a few of these types of articles are included in this resource reference. Most of the references in this publication are concerned with captive animals and their care, behavior, health, handling and bodily functions, etc. This publication is not meant to be all inclusive as there are a number of private database collections on elephants which are not included here. The references listed in this publication were collected and organized into general categories for easier reference and locating pertinent articles. The references are listed first under a General category which pertains to elephants in general and then under separate sections for African and Asian elephants. These two sections are further broken into thirteen subsections as indicated in the Table of Contents. An additional section on Selected Elephant Web Sites has been added at the end of the publication. It is hoped this publication will be of use to those interested in elephants and their care, treatment and conservation in captivity and in the wild.
