Cull targets in Forestry Commission managed blocks were previ-ously based on perceived abundance, recently supported by. Introduction. Browsing by deer has a variety of effects on woodland vegetation, reducing the density of young trees and shrubs and causing changes in botanical composition (Côté et al., ).Deer populations have been steadily increasing in range and numbers in Britain and there is increasing concern for the effects they have on woodlands (Cooke and Farrell, ; Fuller and Gill, ).

The rump is white and Roe Deer also have a white patch under the chin. They have short, three-pointed antlers. The roe deer’s winter coat is a grey-brown colour, but then changes in the summer to a bright red and brown coat.

Bucks in good conditions develop antlers up to 20–25 cm (8–10 in) long with two or three, rarely even four, points. However, Latham et al. () compared red and roe deer densities in 20 localities and found a negative correlation between them.

In the same 20 forests, the authors also found that red deer. Red Deer: Behavior and Ecology of Two Sexes is the most extensive study yet available of reproduction in wild vertebrate.

The authors synthesize data collected over ten years on a population of individually recognizable red deer, usually regarded as conspecific with the American elk. Their results reveal the extent of sex differences in behavior, reproduction, and ecology and make a 5/5(1).

The density of deer in woodlands ranged from to animals/km 2 and included sites containing Roe, Muntjac and Fallow Deer, and a few Red and Sika Deer in various combinations.
