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

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmermann, 1780)) are now common in many urban environments throughout their geographic range. Yet, how male and female deer in the urban environment associate, behave socially, and the evolutionary implications of that behavior remains unstudied. We...

Abstract

Maternal rank "inheritance" occurs in cercopithecine primates, spotted hyenas and several ungulates. A recently observed positive relationship between dominance rank of a mother and that of her sub-adult offspring in wild red deer (Cervus elaphus) suggests that maternal rank "inheritance" also...

Abstract

Large males are solitary or occur in small groups in numerous ruminants. I propose that large males may become less social because of differences in costs and benefits of aggression as they age and increase in size and social status. Outside the mating season, large males have little to gain from...

Abstract

In 1995, aggressive behaviour of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) was studied at winter feeding stations in the Pohénégamook wintering area, Québec (47°29′N 69°14′W), to determine if such behaviour was related to priority of access to food by various age-sex classes. Deer were observed...

Abstract

Over 8 weeks from November to January, 2 groups of 12 yearling stags in Otago, New Zealand, were observed for activities, individual distances, weather conditions and use of shade from trees and shelter from windbreak cloth, at 5 min intervals for 4 h at dawn, noon, and dusk. Over 2 further weeks,...

Abstract

A study was conducted to test whether the effects of space allowance on social interactions, activity patterns and growth rates of hinds reared at pasture in single-species groups, were modified by mixing them with ewes. 30 red deer hinds (10 months old) from the same breeding group and 30 ewes (8...

Abstract

The effects of stocking density on the social behaviour, activity patterns and growth rates of yearling red deer hinds reared at pasture, were measured. Twenty individuals were assigned to 2 groups of 10 in a Latin square design. During period 1 (28 days), group 1 was kept at a low stocking density ...

Abstract

For group-foraging ungulates, forage is generally widely and relatively evenly dispersed, but for free-ranging red deer, Cervus elaphus, supplementary winter feeding provides distinct patches of predictable food, which differ in size and in temporal distribution and depletion rate. Interference...

Abstract

The behaviour of 20 female red deer in a paddock with no visual cover was observed for 2 weeks. Cover, consisting of 2 shade cloth barriers and hanging plastic strips, was placed in one half of the paddock and the behaviour observed. After replication in a 2nd paddock in reversed order, it was...
