Deer Impacts on Forests, Wildlife, and Us

October 10 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm


Presented by Don Waller, retired J.T. Curtis Professor of Botany and Environmental Studies, UW-Madison

Deer are a species that many love to see and feed.  Others like to shoot and eat deer.  Others consider deer to be a scourge to their crops, gardens, ornamentals, and tree seedlings while posing health risks to themselves, other wildlife, and us (think Chronic Wasting and Lyme Disease).  In this talk, Dr. Waller will ask:  How did deer become so abundant?  What limits their abundance?  What impacts are they having?  Are we monitoring those?  Who manages deer?  Is Wisconsin deer management broken?  If so, can we fix it?
