SIKA DEER (CERVUS NIPPON): WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE POOLE BASIN. British Deer Society Publication No. 3.
(1970) 1981 2nd revised edition. Stapled paperback (149 x 210mm). Pp50. B/w species are now easily accessible to every British naturalist: much has been written about them in recent years from the standpoint of the forester and the stalker and we are all indebted to the researches of these pioneers. The British Deer Society has produced these booklets to encourage deer-watching by the uncommitted; each can be purchased and read separately, but the individual authors have concentrated on those aspects of deer ecology most familiar to them. We hope the set gives the general reader an overall picture of a fluid, hopeful situation wherein the enthusiastic amateur can help to elucidate the complex relationship developing between man an deer in today's countryside". Chapters include: Distribution; Description; Photographs; Habitat and food; Activity; Communication;Droppings; The rut; Antlers; Parasites and diseases; Damage; Control and future prospects; Photographs; Close seasons and summary of the Deer Act; Aims of the British Deer Society.
