This is a British Deer Society Double Volume, that is to say, two booklets bound as one. The first is, Muntjac (Muntiacus reevesii), by Oliver Dansie. The second is, Chinese Water Deer (Hydropotes inermis), by Arnold Cooke and Lynne Farrell. "Wild deer of several 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 and deer in today's countryside." Contents include: Muntjac - Description, distribution map, ageing, communication, photographs, fighting, predators, disease, death, habitat, weather, illustrations, food, social behaviour breeding, locomotion, fraying, gouging and scraping, the muntjac year, the future, bibliography. Chinese water deer - Description, sexing and ageing, locomotion, communication and senses, distribution map, fighting, predators, disease, death, photographs, habitat and territory, weather, food, social behaviour, breeding, the year of the Chinese water deer, the future. A separate bibliography is given for each species, whilst two sections are appended: Legislation affecting deer; The British Deer Society.
