The wild cats: Ecological diversity and conservation strategy

The following presentations were given: - Spatial ecology and conservation of four sympatric felids in fragmented forst in north-central Thailand (L. Grassman & M. Tewes) - Ecological research and conservation of the Javan leopard Panthera pardus melas in Gunung Halimum National Park, West Java, Indonesia (S.A. Harahap & N. Sakaguchi) - Ecological plasticity of the Iriomote cat Prionailurus bengalensis iriomotensis as an adaptation to the insular environment variety of food habit and flexible habitat use (S.
