Help Your Data Tell a Clear, True Story

•    Great visualizations share five qualities: truth, function, beauty, insight, and enlightenment.
•   The quality of the information is paramount.
•    Structure information to enable understanding, so relevant patterns become noticeable.

Adapted from: Cairo A. 2018. The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication.

•    Understand the context
•    Choose an appropriate visual display
•    Eliminate clutter
•    Focus attention where you want it
•    Think like a designer
•    Tell a story

From: Knaflic CN. 2015. Storytelling with Data: A Data Visualization Guide for Business Professionals.

Book of the Month

Fowler's Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine: Current Therapy, Volume 9

Fowler's Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine: Current Therapy, Volume 9


R. Eric Miller, Nadine Lamberski, and Paul Calle, eds. (2019)

"... an invaluable tool for any professional working directly with wildlife and zoo animals. The text's user-friendly format guides readers through biology, anatomy, and special physiology; reproduction; restraint and handling; housing requirements; nutrition and feeding; surgery and anesthesia; diagnostics, and therapeutics for each animal. Two new co-editors and a globally diverse group of expert contributors each lend their expertise on a wide range of new topics — including a new section on emerging wildlife diseases covering topics like MERS, Equine Herpesvirus, and Ebola in great apes. Other new topics integrated into this ninth volume include: stem cell therapy in zoo medicine, cardiac disease in great apes, disease risk assessment in field studies, Tasmanian devil tumors, and the latest information on the elephant herpes virus."  —Publisher.
