Author: Nelson, Michael E.;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: Deer migrations and home range traditions indicated that home range location is determined more by early social experience, learning, and tradition than by an innate ability to select the best habitat. Different deer preferred the same or similar habitat but such selection was a secondary influence on home range location.
Keywords: habitat, home range, migration, social organization, traditions
