Deer Exclosures
During the winter of 2010, Tyson staff built a series of 8 deer exclosures that are 50m x 50m fenced, with an unfenced control of equal size on one side. These exclosures will allow Tyson researchers to document the recovery of the forest understory following the removal of the previously abundant white-tailed deer. In addition, several other projects are underway that will utilize these exclosures, including measuring tick abundances, and their disease prevalence, with and without the deer.
