Individual study: Use of electric fences to reduce coppice regrowth damage by muntjac Muntiacus reevesi, Monks Wood National Nature Reserve, Cambridgeshire, England
Cooke A.S. & Lakhani K.H. (1996) Damage to coppice regrowth by muntjac deer Muntiacus reevesi and protection with electric fencing. Biological Conservation, 75, 231-238
In Britain there is concern about habitat damage caused by increasing numbers of (non-native) muntjac deer Muntiacus reevesi. In Monks Wood National Nature Reserve (TL 200800) in Cambridgeshire (southeast England) muntjac by 1985, were responsible for significant damage to coppice regrowth.
