In researching WOLF we ranged widely across a variety of sources, some of which are shown below.  We are grateful for the input of the UK's top wolf biologist, Professor Tim Coulson of Imperial College, London.  We steeped ourselves in Wolf myths and fairy tales as well as works of psychology, ecology and mythology.
