This RIRDC report summarises the information exchanged at the 7th International Deer Biology Congress (IDBC), and places it in an Australian context.
The Australian deer industry is challenged by a variety of external factors, such as unseasonal weather and lack of control of export markets. The industry will be enhanced by a greater awareness of current techniques and ideas in deer science and management.
The IDBC meetings typically cover a wide range of topics, of relevance to those who need up-to-date information on, for example, the health, breeding and nutrition of deer, or methods of controlling over-abundant deer, or of deciding on research priorities and the extension of research findings to deer farmers and managers.
