Abstract

Originally, wolf was distributed through all Europe, Asia and North America but now it has become extinct in much of Western Europe, in Mexico and much of the USA. According to hunters data wolf used to be widely distributed in all of Croatia same as in other parts of north hemisphere. But, in last 30 years number of wolves in Croatia declined and their range shrank on places which are unavailable to humans - mostly mountains area: this lead to legal protection of the species in Croatia. Number of wolves in Croatia is estimated to 170-240 individuals. Wolves survived in Gorski kotar, Lika and Dalmatia but also occasionally appear in Dinarides. This paper presents biology of wolf with special overview on habitat; it shows short review of distribution of wolves in the world and distribution of wolves in Croatia through districts based on data from 2005 till 2008.
