Effect of Enhanced Nutrition on Mule Deer Population Rate of Change

  title={Effect of Enhanced Nutrition on Mule Deer Population Rate of Change},
  author={Chad J. Bishop},
Concerns over declining mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) populations during the 1990s prompted research efforts to identify and understand key limiting factors of deer. Similar to past deer declines, a top priority of state wildlife agencies was to evaluate the relative importance of habitat and predation. We therefore evaluated the effect of enhanced nutrition of deer during winter and spring on fecundity and survival rates using a life table response experiment involving free-ranging mule deer… CONTINUE READING
