Item description for The George Reserve Deer Herd by Dale R. McCullough...
This classic was first published in 1979.
In 1928 six white-tailed deer were introduced to the Edwin S. George Reserve, a two-square-mile fenced area in southeastern Michigan. Six years later, in 1933, the first drive census showed 160 deer. This remarkable growth of deer population became a landmark in the young field of wildlife management.
In this book the author reassessed the results of previous studies on this deer herd done over the years and reported on his own studies over a twelve years period. The latter period involved an intensive effort to elucidate the relationship of population density to birth and survival of offspring. The author's empirical population model, derived from his experiments, is compared to traditional population models used in ecology.
The book is an account of the methods used, analyses performed, and models synthesized from the population data gathered at the Reserve.
