Red deer are an important part of their ecosystem, able to regulate and preserve its health. In turn, they rely on their environment to enable their survival. This makes them an excellent proxy for studying the effect of anthropogenic activity that threatens their environment, and they become a vital study animal for the examination of the effects of human activity in the wild.
Population Dynamics and Conservation of Red Deer: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a research book that focuses on the habits and techniques employed by wild red deer to ensure their survival as well as their overall impact on the environment. The book also studies animal habitat interactions. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics including feeding habits, geography, and disease, this book is ideally designed for biologists, ecologists, environmentalists, researchers, academicians, and students.
