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.

Editorial Reviews

Fred Egloff
North America's most popular and graceful mammal is the subject of this latest volume in the publisher's Wildlife series. It probably provides more information than the average reader would ever want to know about deer, despite the increasing importance of the subject to both rural and urban dwellers. Respected biologists examine every aspect of deer, from the origin of the species to future prospects and impact. White-tail deer, mule deer, and numerous subspecies are cataloged, with information on habitat and ranges. Anatomy both internal and external is examined in detail, and even the distinct stride of the animal is graphically illustrated. All phases of the life cycle are covered, as are population dynamics and the effects of habitat loss. Lack of predators has led to the strong return of the species, so that now a great number are found living in suburbs and even cities. The necessity of ethically responsible harvests is given justification until newer and better methods of population control are found. Liberally illlustrated.
