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 ...
Grazing impacts of White-tailed Deer or "Culling Bambi to save the forest"
(Heritage Resources Centre, University of Waterloo, 2000)
Large herbivores, such as white-tailed deer, can significantly determine the structure and composition of forest plant communities. In several National and Provincial Parks located on southwestern Ontario shorelines, deer ...
Multiple Scale Effects of Overgrazing by White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in Eastern Deciduous (Carolinian) Forests
(Heritage Resources Centre, University of Waterloo, 2002)
Large herbivores such as white-tailed deer can have a significant impact on vegetation across multiple biological scales. We examined the relationship between plant community dynamics in several southern Ontario forest ...
Using a data synthesis approach to generate novel results for ecosystem recovery in deer-affected forests
Overgrazing by white-tailed deer (O. virginianus) has been an ongoing problem in Rondeau Provincial Park since the turn of the century. Since the recent reintroduction of annual culls by park officials, deer densities have ...
Shedding Light on the Problem of Deer Overgrazing in Carolinian Forests
(Centre for Wildlife and Conservation Biology, Acadia University, 2002)
In nearly a decade of research we have carried out a multi-faceted study of the impact of deer grazing in three major Carolinian parks: Point Pelee National Park, and Rondeau and Pinery Provincial Parks. This research has ...
