roe deer study

Biological and ethological study of roe deer populations under semi-freedom and supplementary feeding in the Valsemana fenced farm, León



The project consists of analysing, obtaining results and publishing them in written form (books, magazines and web) of a study on roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) conducted over the last 20 years at the Valsemana Centre, belonging to the Junta de Castilla y León, in the Spanish province of León. 
The roe deer are kept in semi-freedom in 16 enclosures of varying sizes, with supplementary feeding based on cereals and fodder administered only once a week. This study includes very detailed work on the horns of the males and the biology and behaviour of both sexes.
