Large Impact of Eurasian Lynx Predation on Roe Deer Population Dynamics

Fig 2

Lynx kill rate (number of killed roe deer per 30 days) in relation to roe deer density index (roe deer pellet groups per 10 m2).

Females with kittens (black dots and thick line), males (open circles and thin line) and solitary females (grey dots and thick grey line). The horizontal lines indicate mean kill rates for the three categories of lynx, and the vertical lines indicate the 95% confidence intervals of the mean (see Table 3). The thin dotted lines (the upper line females with kittens and the lower line solitary lynx) indicate the Type II functional response from Nilsen et al. [19].
