Reproduction and age estimation in st croix virgin islands white tailed deer odocoileus virginianus



Reproduction and age estimation in st croix virgin islands white tailed deer odocoileus virginianus



Texas Journal of Science 33(2-4): 185-196



Physical characteristics, population estimates, age estimation and reproduction were determined for white-tailed deer on St. Croix, Virgin Islands. The deer were healthy and had little body fat. Reproduction appeared to be good. When ovulation incidence X fertilization frequency, embryo counts and fawn production were substituted into a population increase formula, estimates of annual population increase by each method (33.1, 40.0 and 33.9%, respectively) were similar. Dry eye lens weights and age determination from development and wear of teeth appeared to be the best measurements for use in a regression equation for age estimation.
