This study aims to promote fertility control as a nonlethal means of managing wild animal populations, specifically red deer (Cervus elaphus) in a region of Spain. This is the first time that a research plan on the use of immunocontraceptives in red deer in Spain has been laid. This plan is accompanied by a follow-up study to: (1) determine the effectiveness of the vaccine over 3 years in the prevention of pregnancy, (2) determine the possible contraindications, (3) identify any weaknesses and…

Effects of a GnRH vaccine on the movement and activity of free-living wild boar (Sus scrofa)

The results indicated that the vaccine could be more widely evaluated in the field against overabundant or nuisance populations, and further refinement of this approach for managing wild boar populations, including development of an oral vaccine are warranted.

Genetic analysis of an isolated red deer (Cervus elaphus) population showing signs of inbreeding depression

This study is one of the first to genetically analyse a red deer population showing strong signs of inbreeding depression and urgently needs genetic input from other populations to overcome the negative effects of random drift and inbreeding.

Effects of fertility control on populations of ungulates : General, stage-structured models

Simple analytical models are developed offering general insight into the feasibility of using fertility control to regulate the abundance of ungulates and the persistence of the effect of the fertility control agent and the ability of managers to recognize previously treated animals.

A BSTRACT : Locally overabundant deer herds, particularly those inhabiting fenced or other enclosed areas in urban or suburban settings, are presenting serious problems for wildlife managers,

Efficacy of GnRH immunocontraception of wild white‐tailed deer in New Jersey

GonaCon reduced reproduction in wild adult female white-tailed deer, but greater contraceptive efficacy may be required for it to gain widespread acceptance and use by natural resource managers.

Evaluation of Three Contraceptive Approaches for Population Control of Wild Horses

Preliminruy data after 1 year suggest that IUD- and PZP- treated mares continue to exhibit breeding and estrus, while GnRH-treated mares are less likely to cycle, and a notable contraindication was that uterine edema nomially observed in mares in the follicular phase of the estrous cycle was commonly observed in PZPs.

Inbreeding depression influences lifetime breeding success in a wild population of red deer (Cervus elaphus)

It is shown that heterozygosity is positively associated with male and female adult LBS in a wild population of red deer on the Isle of Rum, Scotland, the first time that inbreeding depression and/or heterosis have been detected for a trait highly correlated with overall fitness in both sexes in aWild population.

Research is being conducted to develop a GnRH vaccine used in combination with the rabies vaccine to control population growth in free-roaming dogs, with the secondary effect of managing the spread of rabies.
