This chapter discusses the importance of understanding individual differences among animals. It argues that ignoring individuals and their variation can limit our understanding of animals and natural processes. The awareness of individuals and their variation also has applied and ethical implications, which can be seen in efforts to conserve threatened species. This point is illustrated using wildlife translocations (including reintroductions).

Keywords:   animals, individual differences, variation, conservation, wildlife translocations
