Biology and Management of White-tailed Deer organizes and presents information on the most studied large mammal species in the world. The book covers the evolutionary history of the species, its anatomy, physiology, and nutrition, population dynamics, and ecology across its vast range (from central Canada through northern South America). The book then discusses the history of management of white-tailed deer, beginning with early Native Americans and progressing through management by Europeans and examining population lows in the early 1900s, restocking efforts through the mid 1900s, and recent, overabundant populations that are becoming difficult to manage in many areas.

Features:

  • Co-published with the Quality Deer Management Association
  • Compiles valuable information for white-tailed deer enthusiasts, managers, and biologists
  • Written by an authoritative author team from diverse backgrounds
  • Integrates white-tailed deer biology and management into a single volume
  • Provides a thorough treatment of white-tailed deer antler biology
  • Includes a CD-ROM with color images

The backbone of many state wildlife management agencies' policies and a featured hunting species through much of their range, white-tailed deer are an important species ecologically, socially, and scientifically in most areas of North America. Highly adaptable and now living in close proximity to humans in many areas, white-tailed deer are both the face of nature and the source of conflict with motorists, home-owners, and agricultural producers. Capturing the diverse aspects of white-tailed deer research, Biology and Management of White-tailed Deer is a reflection of the resources invested in the study of the species’ effects on ecosystems, predator-prey dynamics, population regulation, foraging behavior, and browser physiology.

About the Author:

David G. Hewitt is the Stuart Stedman Chair for White-tailed Deer Research at the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

Review:

" ... has edited an important book in which, appropriately, the first half focuses on the biology of white-tailed deer while the second half focuses on their management. Chapters, written by experts in their fields, reflect the broad geographic distribution of deer, covering deer biology and management from western to northeastern North America as well as Latin America and other locations around the world where deer have been introduced. The figures are clear and provide essential illustrations. A companion CD-ROM contains all of the figures and photos in the book. Hewitt’s contribution deserves kudos because he aptly recognizes the limitations of scientific studies and variation in wildlife biology. ... book provides the only up-to-date, exhaustive, integral reference on their biology and management. Summing Up: Essential."
―CHOICE, A Publication of the Association for College & Research Libraries, January 2011

"... timely and a pleasure to read. I am very impressed with the objective presentation of a subject (WTD biology and management) that is often subjective and emotionally charged. One need only open to the Table of Contents to see the impressive list of authors, all leading experts in white-tailed deer. The book covers the past, present, and future understanding of white-tailed deer biology and management in a very informative and entertaining manner. ... Part II reviews WTD biology and the chapters on anatomy, physiology, and nutrition offer information (e.g., blood values, nutrition requirements) that will be useful to veterinarians and as such, this book could be marketed to that sector. The chapter on antlers was very refreshing as it reviews our historical fascination of antlers and interjects the little known fact that antlers are of interest to the medical community (bone cancer research and organ and limb regeneration). The figures/photos presented in the antler chapter are excellent. ... I found this book very interesting to read and could definitely see scientists and lay WTD enthusiasts enjoying and understanding the material covered in this book. Further, I think it will be of use to veterinarians. An added bonus is the CD that includes all figures as separate files, with the photos offered in color."
―Debra Lee Miller, D.V.M., Ph.D., Center for Wildlife Health (FWF) and Pathobiology (CVM), The University of Tennessee

"... No doubt this book will have a special place on bookshelves because it is the most comprehensive book published solely on whitetailed deer to date. ... useful to a wide range of audiences ... a very comprehensive compilation of current research that was long overdue ... a welcome addition to any library" 
―Stephen L. Webb, Quantitative Ecologist, Hayden-Wing Associates, Laramie, Wyoming, USA, in The Journal of Wildlife Management
