Abstract

The structure of, and seasonal change in, the coat of Red deer (Cervus elalphus) kept indoors is described. Changes in coat length, the grouping of different types of wool fibre in the skin, and changes in follicle activity determined from histological preparations, were studied in samples of the coat and skin taken monthly for two years.
