Population ecology, management and welfare of deer: proceedings of a symposium held in Manchester, April, [S King; Rory Putman; C R Goldspink; British Deer Society.; Manchester Metropolitan University.; Universities Federation for Animal Welfare.;]. The contributors reconsider the meaning of `overabundance' from the perspectives of wildlife biology, international conservation, state game management, and animal welfare, and they discuss the harm - in the form of disease, parasites, and starvation - that can befall deer . This book is the first to consider the management of deer populations from an ecosystem perspective, contending that since deer are unevenly dispersed within protected areas and the effects of high deer densities vary among reserves, different management options should be tested at the landscape level before being widely applied. BOOK REVIEW The Science of Overabundance: Deer Ecology and Population Management A review by Richard Taber McShea, W. J., H. B. Underwood, and J. H. Rappole, editors. * The Science of Deer Management: An Animal Welfare Perspective. A. Ti Rutberg.

The book was carefully designed and written to be of interest and use to sportsmen and other wildlife conservation enthusiasts, as well as to professional wildlife biologists, managers, researchers, administrators, educators and students. It is as comprehensive and informative as any book every devoted to a single wildlife species. Includes the work of over 70 wildlife professionals on Reviews: 1. agricultural concerns or the welfare of deer, dictates management programs. With rare exception, deer population management programs are necessary to respond to prevailing human interests in deer. Summary Just as humans can and do influence the as White-tailed Deer Ecology and Management. Beyond everyone's expectations, the population grew to deer in just 7 years! That's a deer density of 1 deer per 5 acres. The experiment was repeated in with 10 deer. This time the population grew to deer in only 6 years. These experiments demonstrate the tremendous capacity for deer population growth when occupying good habitat. the same scale (e.g., 3 deer mice/m2 in a hay barn compared to mice/m2 in a forest). E. The population growth rate describes the trend in abundance (or density) over time. 1. While growth rate is the most critical parameter when determining the dynamics of a population, the term is a bit misleading. PopulationFile Size: KB.
