AZA Studbook dynamically documents the pedigree and
entire demographic history of each individual in a
population of species. These collective histories
are utilized by SSPs to help develop management
plans for individual species.
Each Studbook is maintained by a Studbook
Keeper, appointed by its corresponding Taxon
Advisory Group or Special Survival Plan.
