  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. The relative importance of beavers (Castor fiber) and browsers on the recruitment of broad-leaved trees in riparian areas

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Matilda Karlsson; [2019]
    Keywords : beaver; Castor fiber; ungulates; herbivory; broad-leaved; riparian; conservation management;

    Abstract : Managed forest landscapes in Sweden are dominated by boreal coniferous forest and are deficient in broad-leaved trees. Both beavers (Castor fiber) and ungulate browsers prefer broad-leaved trees to conifers, and the interaction between multiple herbivores may have a considerable impact on the recruitment of deciduous trees in riparian areas.

  3. 3. Effects on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) in the sapling stage from ungulate browsing

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i biologi

    Author : Markus Velin; [2019]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Ecosystem services from forestry are highly valuable and may be limited by ungulate browsing. Thus, I investigated the impact and seasonality of browsing on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) using seasonal exclosures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Browsing behaviour in complex ungulate multi-species systems in Southern Sweden

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

    Author : Jonatan Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : browsing pressure; interspecific competition; multi-species;

    Abstract : In recent years several of the ungulate species present in Sweden have increased in both densities and distribution. Browsing pressure has mainly been attributed to moose but recent research shows that with more complex ungulate ecosystems new interactions and connections might emerge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Factors affecting damage to Scots pine in a multiple ungulate species system

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

    Author : Matthew Knibb; [2018]
    Keywords : ungulate; browsing damage; dung pellet group counts; land use; weather;

    Abstract : Managing browsing impacts on commercial forestry is one of the main aims of ungulate management in Sweden, with Scots Pine being one of the major forestry species. Moose is the ungulate species with the greatest management focus, although in parts of Sweden it is forms a multiple ungulate species system, along with red deer, roe deer and fallow deer. READ MORE
