Red deer research on the Isle of Rum NNR: management implications
Written by Professors Josephine Pemberton and Loeske Kruuk at the University of Edinburgh, this booklet provides deer management advice arising from intensive research on Rum NNR since 1972. The world's longest running research study of a deer population has been carried out on Rum. The booklet is written for deer managers and deals with counting and ageing methods, and aspects of ecology including range use, density effects on traits such as survival, and the effects of weather on calving and antler casting. With a Foreword by SNH Chairman Ian Ross and former Director of Environment and Forestry with the Scottish Government, Bob McIntosh, the booklet should appeal to a wide range of people interested in deer management and ecology across Scotland.
