Oecologia 137:363-9. 2003
..The availability of these plants is therefore likely to be a key factor in the dynamics of roe deer populations...
- Variations in adult body mass in roe deer: the effects of population density at birth and of habitat quality
Unité Mixte de Recherche 5558 Biométrie et Biologie Evolutive, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Universite Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Bâtiment 711, 43 Boulevard du 11 Novembre 1918, 69622 Villeurbanne Cedex, France
Proc Biol Sci 269:747-53. 2002
..Such delayed effects of density at birth on adult body mass probably affect population dynamics, and might constitute a mechanism by which delayed density-dependence occurs in ungulate populations...
- Inter-specific synchrony of two contrasting ungulates: wild boar (Sus scrofa) and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus)
Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis CEES, Department of Biology, University of Oslo, P O Box 1066, Blindern, 0316, Oslo, Norway
Oecologia 151:232-9. 2007
..We urge future studies to take advantage of studying multiple species in order to gain further insight into processes of how climate affect ungulate populations...
- Hierarchical path analysis of deer responses to direct and indirect effects of climate in northern forest
Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis CEES, Department of Biology, University of Oslo, PO Box 1066, Blindern, 0316 Oslo, Norway
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 363:2359-68. 2008
..No solid evidence of direct effects of snow depth was found on autumn body mass. We discuss the implications of our results relative to our ability to predict effects of global change on large mammalian herbivores in the boreal forest...
- Importance of climatological downscaling and plant phenology for red deer in heterogeneous landscapes
Department of Biology, University of Oslo, Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, CEES PO Box 1066, Blindern, N 0316 Oslo, Norway
Proc Biol Sci 272:2357-64. 2005
..Our results emphasize the importance of incorporating spring as well as the interaction between winter climate and topography when aiming at understanding how plant and animal respond to climate change...
- The relative role of winter and spring conditions: linking climate and landscape-scale plant phenology to alpine reindeer body mass
Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis CEES, Department of Biology, University of Oslo, PO Box 1050, Blindern, N 0316 Oslo, Norway
Biol Lett 1:24-6. 2005
..This study underlines the major impact of winter and spring climatic conditions, determining the spring and summer food availability, and the subsequent growth of calves among alpine herbivores...

The Zoological Society of London, Institute of Zoology, Regent s Park, London NW1 4RY, UK
J Anim Ecol 76:908-14. 2007
..4. We suggest that family effects are likely to be widespread in vertebrates with average litter sizes > 1, and could have important consequences for population dynamics and population viability analyses...
