Inbreeding effects in wild populations.
Ecological Impacts of Deer Overabundance
Given the influence of deer on other organisms and natural processes, ecologists should actively participate in efforts to understand, monitor, and reduce the impact of deer in natural ecosystems.
Direct and indirect effects of white-tailed deer in forest ecosystems
Forests Too Deer: Edge Effects in Northern Wisconsin
Abstract: Browsing by white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) can profoundly affect the abundance and population structure of several woody and herbaceous plant species. Enclosure studies and…
Biotic Impoverishment and Homogenization in Unfragmented Forest Understory Communities
Understory communities in 62 upland forest stands in northern Wisconsin are resurveyed to demonstrate the power of quantitative multistand data for assessing ecological change and identify overabundant deer as a key driver of community change.
Do Plant Populations Purge Their Genetic Load? Effects of Population Size and Mating History on Inbreeding Depression
Regression analyses suggest that purging is most likely to ameliorate ID for early traits, but these declines are typically modest (5–10%).

On May 6, 1978, several strips of sod from a virgin prairie remnant in Owatonna, Minnesota, were transplanted to a 2~4 hectare field of brome grass in the Carleton Arboretum. The sod, threatened by a…

It is suggested that alternative survey instruments are needed and should be calibrated appropriately to the pre-existing attitudes, behavior, and levels of knowledge in these relatively sophisticated target groups.

Monitoring of adaptive responses as a future valuable tool in conservation biology, for identifying populations unable to evolve at sufficiently high rates and for identifying possible donor populations for genetic rescue is foreseeed.
