A review on the temporal pattern of deer-vehicle accidents: impact of seasonal, diurnal and lunar effects in cervids
1985), which in turn could lead to higher infection rates in cervids
(Handeland and Slettback 1994, Halvorsen 2012).
Hunter recruitment and retention ranked first, followed by education and outreach, land access, political influence on management decisions, and the captive cervid
If female coexistence occurs as documented in other polygynous cervids
, then males should display greater frequency and intensity of aggression than females.
They are also found throughout the diseased host including the skeletal muscle, blood and a wide range of other tissues in CWD-infected cervids
, some of which appear to be asymptomatic.
As we have seen, when Agnon mentions the tsvi at the banquet, he is referring to a cervid
, not to the gazelle.
Briefly, the rut is the mating period for white-tail deer (and all cervids
, for that matter).
are a group of animals that belong to the order Artiodactyla and the family Cervidae is distributed worldwide in a variety of biomes, although they are becoming rare in several areas of natural occurrence (MARQUES et al.
Indeed, Jenkins and Wright (1988) noted strong potential for interspecific competition among cervids
using lowland Picea forests during severe winters in Flathead Basin, Montana, USA.
The Late Pleistocene and early Holocene fossil record of northeastern North America provides a relatively limited range of possible terrestrial mammalian candidates for the Manasquan specimen: mastodon (Mammut americanum); wooly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius); bears, particularly polar bear (Ursus maritimus); large periglacial bovids, especially musk oxen (Bootherium bombifrons; Ovibos moschata) and ice age bison (Bison latifrons); and larger periglacial cervids
(caribou, elkmoose, and moose).
were not always identified after WVA; most possibly, red deer and roe deer made the largest share of unidentified roadkills.
Microsatellites in reindeer, Rangifer tarandus, and their use in other cervids
could serve as vectors for chronic wasting disease (CWD) to cervids
due to their proximity to host structures potentially rich in prion rods and their ability to replicate and express prion proteins.
These were from various species, including horse, reindeer, cervids
and probably mammoth.
Control of CWD in farmed cervids
involves depopulation with indemnity and herd plan development.
