Different species of brocket deer vary from gray to reddish brown in coat colour. Several species such as the chital, the fallow deer and the sika deer feature white spots on a brown coat. Coat of reindeer shows notable geographical variation. Deer undergo two moults in a year; for instance, in red deer the red, Class: Mammalia. White-tailed deer from the tropics and the Florida Keys are markedly smaller-bodied than temperate populations, averaging 35 to 50 kg (77 to lb), with an occasional adult female as small as 25 kg (55 lb). White-tailed deer from the Andes are larger than other tropical deer of this species, and have thick, slightly woolly looking fur. Length ranges from 95 to cm (37 to 87 Class: Mammalia.

Quantitative Paleozoology describes and illustrates how the remains of long-dead animals recovered from archaeological and paleontological excavations can be studied and analyzed. The methods range from determining how many animals of each species are represented to determining whether one collection consists of more broken and more burned Cited by:

Of ten deer fawns which I examined in , both mule deer and white-tailed deer, all except three have exhibited prognathism, most mild to moderate. While these problems appear to be somewhat less severe in the young of , they are still present in significant numbers in young animals which I have personally examined. The techniques are useful when the seasonal schedule of births is known, such as for white-tailed deer. For example, the peak season of births for modern white-tailed deer in Illinois is June. A deer mandible from an archaeological site from an individual that was 6 months old represents a deer that was likely killed around November or December.

Morphologic variation in the cranium and mandible of the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) by John W. Rees Download PDF EPUB FB2

Several biological distances based on cranial and mandibular variation among breeding groups of white‐tailed deer were calculated and compared with geographic distances among the groups.

Distances based on epigenetic variation among ten groups were calculated using 16 non‐metric variants of the cranium and by:   Morphologic variation in the cranium and mandible of the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus): a comparative study of geographical Cited by: Rees, J.W.: a, Morphologic variation in the cranium and mandible of the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus): a comparative study of geographical and four biological distances.

White-tailed deer exhibit a high degree of genetic and morphometric variation at the individual level (Long ; Smith et al.

), which might be expected in a large, herbivorous placental occupying a. The average white-tailed deer skull is about inches long and inches wide. The skull is made up of the cranial bones (cranium) and the facial bones (which include the mandible). The joints of the cranial and facial bones are called sutures.

The cranium surrounds and protects the brain and the organs of hearing and balance. Morphology of the white-tailed deer tarsal gland. Acta Theriologica The communication of reproductive information in cervids is thought to be accom­ plished by odors associated with skin glands.

The tarsal glands of white-tailed deer Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmerman, ), in particular, are the focus of many. Homo and Pan are least sexually dimorphic in the mandible, Pan less so than Homo sapiens, but both the magnitude of sexual dimorphism and the distribution of sexually dimorphic measurements varied both among and between modern humans and great apes.

Intraspecific variation among the 10 populations of modern humans was less than that generally reported in studies of crania (% of mandibles Cited by: Between 22 September and 2 May We collected tarsal glands from male and female white-tailed deer Odocoileus virginianus from the Piedmont region of Georgia (USA) of various ages during the breeding and non-breeding seasons.

Using light microscopy, we examined skin biopsies of tarsal glands microscopically to quantify sebaceous and apocrine glandular by: mandible. It is of great interest that such rare morphological anomalies can occur in the same mandible.
