ECOS 32 (1) Spring 2011. Deer management and biodiversity in England: the efficacy and ethics of culling. Simon Leadbeater

Abstract: This article examines the issues associated with controlling deer numbers in order to protect biodiversity. It concludes that culling is in danger of becoming increasingly indiscriminate and that a different perspective derived from ethology and philosophy demands a new approach. The impact of deer on other species is largely true for a narrow range of habitats upon which relatively few species depend, species whose habitat should nonetheless be safeguarded.
