Summary
Odocoileus virginianus is a cervid, originating in the Americas, from Canada to Brazil. It has been introduced to many other countries, such as Finland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and New Zealand. It can adapt to many types of vegetation from the forests of North America to the prairies and swamps of Florida. Its diet depends on the type of vegetation and resources available. By consuming plants, Odocoileus virginianus can have a major impact on forest regeneration, especially where population densities are high.
