Environmental Enrichment and Refinement of Husbandry for Nonhuman Primates
Environmental enrichment is the provision of stimuli that promote the expression of species- appropriate behavioral and mental activities in an under-stimulating environment.
Refinement is the attempt to enhance animal welfare and control extraneous variables that may increase research data variability.
This database disseminates information on all aspects of species-appropriate housing and handling of captive nonhuman primates. It contains published articles, abstracts, books, book chapters, slide sets, and videotapes.
