Project Title

Wildlife Ecology, Behavior and Habitat Improvement in New York


"The ranging behavior and activity patterns of eight white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus were monitored by means of radio-telemetry during three tracking sessions in May, August and October of 1977. Use of logged and unlogged areas and several forest types were compared. Minor shifts in range locations as well as significant changes in time of activity were documented between tracking sessions."
