PAPER #3: Regional comparison of deer dispersal and movements (Leads:  Scott H. , Nancy, Kurt, Bill)

Key Questions:

1.

How does dispersal rate and distance vary with landscape composition?

2.

How do other movements relate to landscape composition?

3.

Characterize timing, age and sex of deer that make excursions relative to landscape characteristics?  Bouncers? Resident deer? Migrators?

4.

How do movements relate to population density? Other factors?

Data:  capture date, dispersal date, dispersal distance, age at capture, centroid of home range (rather than capture location), centroid of new home range, location of final disposition, time of dispersal, excursion distance and excursion time, % of population that disperses, average daily movements.

Landscape composition:

Edge density, forest contagion, ownership type, # land ownerships, %Habitat composition within study area (defined by core area- minimum convex polygon for all deer except dispersers and transitional deer), location (latitudinal gradient), forest patch size, road density.  Use national land cover map.

Deer Density: calculated on a study area basis using state DNR approaches.

Data Sources:  Nixon (IL), Schauber (IL), Campa (MI), Jenks (SD and MN sites), Hygstrom (NE), Mathews (WI), Millspaugh/Hansen (northern MO)

PAPER #4:  Integration of ecological and HUMAN dimensions for management of white-tailed deer. (Leads:  Shawn, Rique )

Key Questions/Goals:

1.

Illustrate the process and principles by which wildlife managers might integrate information to make management decisions?

2.

How would managers integrate human dimensions and ecological information?

Approach

o

Reason for multi-state research

o

Describes a process for integration

Paper #5:  Regional patterns of habitat selection in white-tailed deer (Leads:  Josh, Rique, Scott)

Paper # 6:  Factors affecting stakeholder acceptance capacity in white-tailed deer (Lead:  Jody, Shawn)
