Welcome to the webbsite of my master thesis

My name is Ulrica Ahlrot and in the following pages you will find information about my master thesis in Applied Ethology and Animal Biology.

Welfare in zoo kept felids

a study of knowledge about resource usage

It is a common view that felids need large space, multiple den sites and resting places, environmental complexity and variability, and more control over their situation. I would like to challenge this view and ask if this is founded in scientific research or old habits. Do all felid species have the same needs and is there an order of priority in availability of resources?
