About this book

Deer of the World is the first comprehensive reference work ever published on the systematics, ecology, conservation status and management of all the world's deer species.

Covering all 53 deer species worldwide, this volume brings together the contributions of 160 international deer experts and provides:
- A comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge on deer evolution, phylogeny, taxonomy and systematics
- A comprehensive understanding of the ecology and conservation status of each species, with detailed accounts
- A series of case studies on conservation, management, hunting, farming, and the impact of deer on forest ecosystems

This beautifully illustrated book is an invaluable resource for researchers, wildlife managers and students in conservation biology, ecology, and management, as well as interested laypeople. It reveals the fascinating story of deer evolution, the long history of interactions between humans and deer, and the main threats to this charismatic species group.
