Urban sprawl into the geographic range of cervid (deer) species has resulted in the need for management intervention. Cervids have a profound impact on culture and the economy of rural areas and are a significant factor in the ecology of the urban landscape. This book examines cervid species that are known to inhabit urban communities across the United States. It reviews various aspects of urban cervid management including national distributions and estimated populations within states; their ecological role as a keystone species; management activities that promote or preclude their urban existence; available funding and public education options; and conflict resolution.
