Peuroja ja poroja Grönlannissa - peuroja Huippuvuorilla / Mauri Nieminen.

Title: Peuroja ja poroja Grönlannissa - peuroja Huippuvuorilla / Mauri Nieminen.
Translated title: Wild and herded reindeer in Greenland - wild deer in Svalbard.
Author(s): Nieminen, Mauri.
Date: 1996.
Language: Finnish.
In: Poromies. (1996.), Vol. 4 (1996)
Abstract: First idea of importing reindeer and muskox was in 1833. Rasmussen followed with some Saami in 1905, to try 300 deer at Nuuk. In autumn 1952 deer were brought from Finnmark. By 1969 there were nearly 6000. Figures of areas, numbers and meat consumption are given. Wild deer have survived; in western Greenland there were 25 000 at end of 1980s, with five to ten thousand killed annually. There are 8 reserves for them. Numbers of both have decreased slightly because of competition from hardy muskox. About 8500 wild deer live in Svalbard. Climate and plant life and peculiarities of breed are described.
