Estimation of field roe deer population density from total counts



Estimation of field roe deer population density from total counts



Folia Zoologica 40(1): 25-36



In the years 1980-85, from January to March (exceptionally also at the beginning of April) 28 total counts of field roe deer were carried out in an area of 34.9 to 42.7 km2, comparatively lucid and little forested (5%). In the course of one year the population densities ascertained varied within a maximum range of 5 to 15 individuals, km-2. The differences, however, were not statistically significant; after a sufficient number of repeated counts the densities determined seem to be real. Accurate records of the location of individuals and their groups during the individual counts could be used for calculating population densities also for smaller areas and districts, from fields with an area of 0.1 km2 to hunting grounds with an area of 14.7 km2. We found that in this type of the landscape an area of 8 km2 is sufficient for obtaining actual values from total counts.
