About this book

From one of the world's best-known wildlife authors/photographers comes this authoritative, extensive guide to the world's deer species. This comprehensive reference work provides a unique source of information about all 45 of the world's deer species, covering everything from the ubiquitous North American whitetail to the hairy-fronted muntjac of east China. "The Encyclopedia of Deer" thoroughly covers each species' physical characteristics, behaviour, range, and population (many species are rare and/or endangered), and its relationship to humans in the areas in which it lives. The text is complemented by Rue's amazing photographs, which capture deer in every season and activity.
