  1. 1. Using camera traps to compare the habitat choice of different deer species in hunting versus non-hunting season

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Laura Juvany Canovas; [2019]
    Keywords : ungulates; camera trapping; occupancy modelling;

    Abstract : A general increase in ungulate populations calls for a better understanding of their habitat use and movement at small spatial scales. This understanding is necessary for the development of useful management actions to solve possible human-wildlife conflicts. One proposed management action is to use the indirect effects of hunting.

  2. 2. Nutritional ecology of roe deer (Capreolus capreolus L.) and fallow deer (Dama dama L.) : a case study of the browser - grazer dichotomy

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Heidi Rautiainen; [2017]
    Keywords : nutritional ecology; rumen contents; forage selection; deer; Capreolus capreolus; Dama dama;

    Abstract : Nutritional ecology implies the nutritional links between an animal and its environment. On an evolutionary time scale competition for food drives species formation by genetic adaptations to the environment and subsequent niche separation of species. READ MORE

  3. 3. Age dependent costs of reproduction in a sexually dimorphic species : male fallow deer as an example

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Linn Lindström; [2017]
    Keywords : dama dama; cost of reproduction; home range size; sexual dimorphism;

    Abstract : Energy and time are two of the most important factors limiting the investment spent on reproduction for an organism. Due to this limitation, individuals have to balance between using energy for maintenance or growth and using it for reproduction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu latu in rodents from two areas with varying wild ungulate densities in Southern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Jimmy Nyman; [2017]
    Keywords : Borrelia Burgdorferi sensu lato; DNA; external oligonucleotides; infection probability; prevalence; rodents; ungulates;

    Abstract : On a global scale, zoonotic vector-borne diseases pose an increasing threat towards human health. In Europe, the haemotophagous ectoparasite sheep tick (Ixodes ricinus) acts as a pathogen vector for diseases like tick-borne encephalitis and Lyme disease with increasing annual incidences during the last decades.

  5. 5. Comparison of three different indirect methods to evaluate ungulate population densities

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Sabine Pfeffer; [2016]
    Keywords : wildlife ecology; density estimates; camera trapping - random encounter model; dung pellet group counts;

    Abstract : Reliable species population estimates are important for population conservation and management. Information about population sizes is needed to introduce certain preservation and regulation approaches. Several different methods, both performed in the field and analytical, can be used to estimate species densities. READ MORE
