Urban Deer Havens consists of a thorough examination of selected cervid (deer) species that are known to inhabit urban communities in the United States.
The deer species that are included in this presentation consisted of white-tailed (Odocoileus virginianus), Key deer (O. v. clavium), moose (Alces alces), elk (Cervus elaphus), mule (Odocoileus hemionus), and black-tailed deer (O. h. columbianus). This book is the first attempt to examine the similarities and differences in those factors that allow the selected cervids to exist and thrive in urban habitats.
This information has never been collected, collated, reviewed, and published under one cover document.
Yet, all five are known to inhabit urban communities within their geographic range.
The lack of information concerning several important examples of urban cervids in conjunction with a proliferation of information on white-tailed deer only is an incomplete and biased presentation.
This book is the first comprehensive source of information on urban deer management, which includes a broad assemblage of urban cervids. The overall objective of this book is to provide a more holistic examination of urban cervids.
For example, it examines the similarities and differences of the environmental impacts, management strategies, and human dimensions considerations concerning urban cervids in general, and using specific examples.
Urban Deer Havens features four chapters that include:Urban deer census techniques and population dynamicsComprehensive tables that review urban community deer management plansNational and state-wide estimates the five selected cervidsLaws and regulations concerning urban deerLethal and nonlethal management options for managing deerSteps for managing urban deer populationsExamples of urban deer management efforts
