Sponsored by the Quality Deer Management Association, this book is the first comprehensive reference in more than 20 years on the white-tailed deer, the most studied large mammal species in the world. It covers the evolutionary history of the species; its anatomy, physiology, and nutrition; population dynamics; and ecology across its vast range.
The text also presents a history of management beginning with Native Americans and progressing through management by Europeans, population lows in the early 1900s, restocking efforts through the mid-1900s, growing populations through the late 1900s, to a species that is overabundant and becoming difficult to manage.
