A population craniometric analysis of the red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) from Bulgaria was carried out using 19 linear skull and dental parameters. The analysis included 93 adult individuals (74 males and 19 females), originating from the main hunting economic areas in the country, i.e. Central Stara Planina Mountains, Strandzha-Sakar area, Ludogorie-Dobrudzha region and the Rila-Pirin region. The data confirmed a high degree of sexual dimorphism of the skull. The univariate and multivariate…

THE CORRELATION BETWEEN MANDIBULAR LENGTH VERSUS BODY MASS AND AGE IN THE EUROPEAN ROE DEER ( CAPREOLUS CAPREOLUS L . )
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that mandibular length is a useful metric for describing the quality of roe deer populations and individuals.

A re‐examination of the subspecies of Red deer (Cervus elaphus) with particular reference to the stocks in Britain
TLDR
After examining samples of skulls, using multivariate analysis, it appeared that, within the limits of the material representing the various subspecies of the world, there was little support for the concept of subspeciation in Red deer.
