Abstract:Understanding the population density and distribution of precious animal is an important basis for the implementation of protective measures. From July to August in 2015, the faecal standing crop counting method was used to investigate the population density of sambar deer (Rusa unicolor) in the Pitiao and Gengda River basin of Wolong National Nature Reserve. Meanwhile, by combining the ecological monitoring data that collected in recent years, the distribution of sambar deer was analysed preliminarily. The results showed that sambar deer distributed widely in Wolong National Nature Reserve. The altitude distribution of sambar deer ranged from 1 354 m to 3 841 m above sea level, and 95% of the trace points were at an altitude interval of 1 600-3 599 m. The average population density of sambar deer was 0.25 ind./km2±0.16 ind./km2 in the study area. Moreover, the decline trend of sambar deer population density from the upstream of Pitiao River down to Gengda River basin was obviously, and there were significant positive correlation among population density, distance between trace points and residential area, and these indicated that the residential areas had significant influence on the distribution of sambar deer.
