Our goal is to determine white-tailed deer abundance and densities in Alberta’s northeast boreal forest. Understanding white-tailed deer distribution in the boreal forest was our primary goal, and we strove to meet these goals through a series of population and landscape “natural experiments” (Diamond 1983, Turner 1989). Each chapter in this report highlights a different examination of whitetailed deer distribution and abundance, and the implications for boreal deer expansion. These experiments are rooted in three main aspects of WTD biology: foraging ecology, movement ecology, and energetics.
