Presentation: Are Deer Changing our Forests?

Recently, a link was posted to a presentation delivered at the 2013 Wildlife Society National Conference held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin October 5-10, 2013.  The presentation is entitled
This presentation is a great follow-up to my post entitled White-tailed Deer Population Dilema from January 3, 2014.  In this presentation Dr. Waller, Professor of Botany and Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin, states the conditions he describes from research in Wisconsin are largely mirrored throughout the Northeastern US. 

I wanted to share with you Dr. Waller's final quote from the presentation.  He states, " Interestingly, no hunters have suggested, and not even wildlife managers in this state, that the reason deer numbers may have gone down in the last couple years in because they're eating themselves out of house and home."  Take a moment to view this 20 minute presentation.
