Overgrazed Ecosystems: Do Plant Communities Recover?
(Parks Research Forum of Ontario (PRFO) Heritage Resources Centre University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, 1998)
Large herbivores, such as white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), are major determinants of the structure and composition of forest plant communities. Previous studies of herbivory have examined plant community response ...
Restoring highly fragmented populations of herbaceous spring ephemerals in a severely grazed Carolinian forest
(Heritage Resources Centre, University of Waterloo, 2003)
High deer populations at a number of provincial parks (e.g., Rondeau and Presqu'ile Provincial Parks) throughout Ontario are seen to pose a threat to the natural state of the park. The effects of grazing by white-tailed ...
Impact of herbivory of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) on plant community composition
(Association of Applied Biologists, Horticulture Research International, Wellesbourne, Warwick., 1996)
The woodland ground flora of permanent quadrats in dry, wet and mesic habitats in Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada was recorded in 1992. This park is a premier example of Carolinian or deciduous forest, but is ...

(Biology Department, York University, 1997)
Executive Summary: 1. In 1994 the Science Technology Transfer Unit of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources initiated a 5-year project in collaboration with the Department of Biology, York University, Toronto, to monitor ...
Interactions between deer and vegetation in southern Ontario, Canada: Monitoring and restoration of overgrazed plant communities in Pinery and Rondeau Provincial Parks.
(Biology Department, York University, 1995-03)
Executive Summary: One of the main goals of this report was to lodge a single record of our numerous research activities on deer-plant interactions in southern Ontario. Table 1 summarizes the project's components and ...
