Sinopsis:

Ungulates are an extraordinarily important group of animals worldwide. In many cases, they are keystone species with a disproportionate effect on the functioning of the wider ecological systems of which they form a part. They can also serve as dominant species acting as ecological engineers and as a prey base for endangered or expanding populations of large carnivores. They are important culturally and economically, as a major source of protein in subsistence cultures and because of their wide exploitation in recreational hunting, which is still a major form of land use in many countries.

The book considers a number of aspects of the balance of cost and benefit of ungulates and their management in Europe. Through a synthesis of the underlying biology and a comparison of the management techniques adopted in different countries, management approaches which seem effective within their respective circumstances are explored. Each chapter is written by experts in their own fields, ensuring that they are aware of the most up-to-date literature on that topic and can also offer an experienced and informed review based on their own research experience.

Review:

'The now renowned editorial partnership of Professor Rory Putman and Professor Marco Apollonio have come together again to compile a compendium of topical research on traditional and novel aspects and interpretations of how we seek to understand and manage ungulate populations across a developing human society. The two previous volumes have been awarded prizes in the wildlife conservation sector, by CIC, and this volume will surely be rewarded with the same accolade. The joy of these papers is not just the main topic of each but the references to tremendous research work previously undertaken which is now an essential part of the sound scientific library of knowledge...a delight to read and the mass of information from across Europe's ungulate research sector fascinating and informative. There is much in these articles for everyone'. British Deer Society Journal
