 The photo shows a juvenile roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) dispersing into a human-dominated landscape in southern France. Read the associated paper ‘Beyond dispersal versus philopatry? Alternative behavioural tactics of juvenile roe deer in a heterogeneous landscape' (Ducros et al. 2020). The paper shows that individuals use alternative dispersal tactics in contrasted environments which potentially has important repercussions for population dynamics and functioning.
