Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Gotland is an island in the Baltic Sea where man has introduced roe deer. The last successful reintroduction was in the 1980s and is the base of the viable roe deer population of today.
The aim of this study was to estimate the roe deer population density in 2012 and the species population dynamic since the time when studies on the population started. The result indicates a population size of 850 roe deer in 2012. There was no significant population dynamic, which may be due to insufficient data. The population occurs basically over the whole island but have not yet been established in all suitable areas. Since reporting of hunting numbers of roe deer started they have increased while the hunting numbers of red fox have declined. Red fox is the most frequent predator on roe deer on the island.
