Does fluctuating asymmetry of antlers in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) follow patterns predicted for sexually selected traits?
Molecular Variation in the Variable-Length PCR Target and 120-Kilodalton Antigen Genes of Ehrlichia chaffeensis from White-Tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
Evaluation of the influence of supplemental feeding of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) on the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in the Michigan wild deer population
Population characteristics of sympatric mule and white-tailed deer on Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Colorado
Winter resource selection of reintroduced elk and sympatric white-tailed deer at multiple spatial scales
Understanding limiting factors and interspecific interactions is fundamental to wildlife management and can be inferred from multiscale patterns of resource selection. We studied winter resource selection and overlap of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and translocated female elk (Cervus elaphus) over 2 winters in central Ontario, Canada. Microhabitat data were collected along 4 organism-centered spatial scales: site, trail, feeding station, and diet. Although winter conditions varied between years, white-tailed deer consistently traveled and fed in habitats with greater coniferous basal area than elk. Neither species demonstrated selection for coniferous basal area or snow depth across scales. At successively...
