The impact of deer on natural regeneration in the sundarbans mangrove forest of Bangladesh



The impact of deer on natural regeneration in the sundarbans mangrove forest of Bangladesh



Bangladesh Journal of Zoology 22(2): 223-234



A study was conducted in the Sundarbans forest to know the influence of the Spotted Deer (Axis axis) on the regeneration of the mangrove. The deer was not found to affect the natural regeneration of Heritiera fomes, Excoecaria agallocha and Ceriops decandra. But browsing by the deer was harmful for the regeneration of Avicennia officinalis, Xylocarpus mekongensis, Bruguiera sexangula and Aegiceras corniculatum. It is possible that deer influenced the dominance of one or more species of plants in the forest and might also suppress some of the less commercially important species through their preferential feeding habits.
