Evaluating the management success of an alien species through its hunting bags: the case of the sika deer in the Czech Republic
Alien mammal species have a very long history of anthropogenic introductions and have been extensively studied due to their severe impact on native biodiversity and ecosystems, as well as due to the great economic damages they can cause. Among these species, one of the most detrimental is the sika deer (Cervus nippon), a native Asian deer that has spread across Europe over the last 150 years. Recognised as a source of damages for the vegetation and as a threat for the native red deer (Cervus elaphus) due to hybridisation, sika deer have settled in several districts of the Czech Republic and have widely colonized the area with increasing population numbers.
