Abstract

We studied the effects of social rank on the haematologic profile in a herd of 24 female Iberian red deer hinds. Social rank hierarchy was determined and blood samples were taken and analysed. After adjusting for age and body mass, dominance ranking showed a significant negative effect (ie, lower...

AbstractFull Text

Neophobia is an ecologically relevant behaviour that arises through a cognitive assessment of novel stimuli. We assessed the responses of 8 captive fallow deer, using a novel object test and a qualitative behaviour assessment scale. The categorical principal component analysis revealed that the...

Abstract

Models of collective animal behaviour frequently make assumptions about the effects of neighbours on the behaviour of focal individuals, but these assumptions are rarely tested. One such set of assumptions is that the switch between active and inactive behaviour seen in herding animals is...

Abstract

The mating behaviour of European fallow deer (Dama dama) was studied. Remote surveillance motion activated (RSMA) cameras were used to record fallow deer behaviour 24/7 at a rutting stand in South Devon. Camera recording commenced before the start of the autumn rut in early September 2009 and...

Abstract

In this review we offer a synthesis of a 30-year-long investigation focussed on the relationship between dominance rank-related behaviour and the timing and growth of antlers in deer. Our studies related primarily to red and fallow deer. We present evidence to suggest that dominance-related...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the effect of a change in the social composition in a group of red deer males on the relationship between their rank and testosterone. A group of twelve adult red deer males (Cervus elaphus) was tested in two social settings. From April 15 to June 9 (Period ...
