Abstract:
This study was designed to investigate the ecology and performance of a population of Japanese sika deer (Cervus nippon nippon) and to determine the possible impacts of different levels of deer density and culling on vegetation in Killarney National Park, Ireland. The Park is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under European law and contains a number of important habitats and species of conservation merit. Compared with most other study sites in Western Europe, the area is unusual in having mild winters with mean temperatures of approximately 7°C as well as a high year-round rainfall.
