UNB Libraries is pleased to announce the availability of a new database called Wildlife & Ecology Studies Worldwide (WESW). WESW is the world’s largest index to literature on wild mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
WESW will be of particular use to faculty and students researching in areas such as: individual species, habitat types, hunting, economics, wildlife behaviour, management techniques, diseases, ecotourism, zoology, and taxonomy.
Database coverage dates from 1935 to present and includes more than 670,000 bibliographic records many of which offer abstracts. In addition, approximately 18,000 new records are added per year.
Most of the database records are from Wildlife Review Abstracts , formerly Wildlife Review, which until 1996 was a print publication produced by the U.S. National Biological Service. Wildlife Review Abstracts plus the 7 other related databases in this exclusive collection offer a global perspective and together form the most comprehensive resource on wildlife information.
To take WESW for a test-drive, from UNB Libraries’ homepage, select e-Resources >> Indexes and Abstracts >> and then select Wildlife & Ecology Studies Worldwide from the drop down “Browse by Title” menu.
