My name is Maria Malidaki, and I am a veterinarian doing a Master's in Applied Ethology and Animal Biology in Linköping University. This webpage hosts information about my master's project, titled "Effects of an odor or taste stimulus applied to an artificial teat on the suckling behavior of newborn dairy calves" and supervised by professor Matthias Laska (Department of Biology, IFM).

You can read a summarized version of the main components of the study (background and aims, methods, results and discussion of the findings) by navigating the menu. You are welcome to communicate your questions and comments at marma475@student.liu.se.
