Red Deer project in Sweden: Population model for management of red deer

Red Deer project in Sweden:
Population model for management of red deer

The red deer project in Sweden started in 2005. The aim is to produce data that can be used to improve management of the increasing red deer population in Sweden. The study investigates home range size, movement patterns, habitat choice, effects of disturbance, and monitoring methods, as well as making analyses of ongoing management. Since 2006, 40 red deer have been marked with GPS-collars in three different study areas.
