    Hi!! I'm a landscape architecture student doing my thesis on zoo design. Would like to know if there are websites where I can find resources regarding recommended plants (or plants to be avoided) for the following animals' enclosure:

    1. Dhole Enclosure
    2. Siberian Tiger Enclosure
    3. Red Panda & Long-tailed Goral Enclosure
    4. Other types of mixed species enclosures like Tropical House, Water Bird Aviaries...

    A temperate plant list will be the best as the site is in Seoul, South Korea.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated!! ^^

    Hi

    A useful resource for you is the website www.zooplants.net, which has a list of plants and zoo experiences with various animals exposed to them. You have to register before accessing the site, but registration is free

    Various bamboo species would suit all these settings, although they would need protecting from the Goral.
