Deerby Duane Gerlach
Visually stunning and impeccably researched, this volume on whitetails, blacktails, and mule deer presents an astonishing portrait of the species. More than 100 leading wildlife professionals, respected biologists, and renowned photographers and artists have contributed to cover every aspect of the evolution, life history, anatomy, physiology, behavior, and habitat of North American deer.
Illuminating comparisons of the species - their gaits, methods of dealing with predators, preferred foods, social behaviors, mating activities - reveal the ecological niche and natural history of North America's most popular wild mammal. Included as well are controversial studies of vision capabilities, communication, and subspeciation. Deer is lavishly illustrated. Full-color photographic sequences of rubbing, scraping, sparring, fighting, copulating and other rarely glimpsed activities show deer in their natural world. There are 350 incredible full-color photographs altogether, plus 40 color paintings, 20 black-and-white drawings, and informative maps and graphs.
