Animal Science applied to the Hunting Management

img_57ab973c5289eThe general objective of this research group is to fill the space that field ecologists and animal production scientists have left each other to evaluate the effects of management, ecological factors (particularly climate) and others in nutritional status (in specific nutrients or mineral ore), body condition, the physiological effort, the variables of lactation, the long-term effects on the growth of the antlers in male and female reproductive efforts , etc. Another objective general of this line is strengthen the understanding of the different factors that affect to the composition ore and to the behavior mechanical of the bone (particularly in antlers), taking in consideration them different implications that this could have for the medicine human.

The objectives in the long term of our research are:

  1. Develop a diagnostic tool based on mineral composition, structure and mechanics of the horns, but also in any other type of information to evaluate quality of the hunting management, the potential problems, the quality of the habitat, and anticipate climatic effects on the nutritional status and physiological conditions of the deer and quite possibly other ungulates.
  2. Propose measures to counteract: extend the knowledge general on the situation of the populations of hunting in others countries and propose solutions specific.
    1. problems caused by inefficient management;
    2. those derived by fences;
    3. General restrictions on the availability of Na, as structural problems, or other minerals in Spanish soil.
    4. and propose practices of management to increase the size of the horns or the condition general of the populations of ungulates.

Composition and mechanical properties of the Iberian Red Deer antler.

The horns are very expensive to produce for animal structure: grows and falls every year, and as the diet does more than 40% of the necessary ore for its formation, animals must rely even on skeletal decalcification. Therefore, the composition of the Horn reflects the quality of the animal and the food available; and this composition determines its properties mechanical. Our group study comprehensively this cycle (animal-alimentacion - composition and properties of the horns) in order to identify management measures that result in improvements in the quality of trophies.
