Deer Biology Congress
The International Deer Biology Congress (IDBC) aims at uniting professionals interested in wild deer biology, management and farmed deer production, to provide a forum to discuss common problems, and share knowledge and experiences. Some of the major topics covered include general deer biology and ecology, evolution, genetics, management, in-situ and ex-situ conservation, veterinary aspects, domestic deer farming, antler biology, and antler and venison production. The conservation biology of cervids will derive important benefits from activities related to deer production. The IDBC allows new relationships to be formed and hopefully spark new endeavors in cervid research, conservation, management and production.
