Description

The Roe Deer is the first comprehensive book in English covering the biology, reproduction and behaviour of this beautiful animal and its place in modern Britain. It is the essence of a lifetime’s experience in the management and conservation of the species, written in layman’s terms with extensive references for students. A detailed bibliography is included.

The book also covers the natural history of the roe deer throughout the world, including the little-known Asiatic roe. Conservation topics focus on the impact of man on deer, and on problems raised by over-population and damage to forestry, farming and gardens, with advice on mitigating it.

Throughout, the author’s deep understanding and affection for the species makes this a book which can be read equally for instruction or pleasure by anyone concerned with deer and the world they inhabit.
