NINA has an extensive portfolio of research projects on moose, red deer, roe deer and wild reindeer.
Over the last century, the Norwegian moose-, red deer-, and roe deer populations have grown rapidly, both in terms of sizes and in terms of distributions. Thus, knowledge to ensure effective management of Norwegian cervids is more important now than ever before.
NINA’s goal is to be involved in a wide range of research on all Norwegian cervids. Some of NINA’s main activities within this field relate to the monitoring of cervids, as well as to projects related to the materials collected through the monitoring program. Research activities include studies on land use, predation, and the impacts of technical interventions.
