Conservation impact and the management of wild deer in the east of England

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


Diverse management objectives between stakeholder groups can often lead to conflict regarding the management of wildlife resources. This is especially the case for species it are mobile over large areas of multiple land ownership, such as deer. In Britain, deer provide a source of revenue through sport, hunting and tourism but can also impose costs on society by increasing disease transmission and road traffic accidents. They also have the ability to influence the structure and functioning of ecosystems, often conflicting with management objectives for areas managed for agriculture, forestry and conservation.
