    Corrigendum

    Correction to 'Wolf reintroduction to Scotland: public attitudes and consequences for

    red deer management'

    In Nilsen et al (2007), we described the Deer Commis sion for Scotland (DCS) as having a stated management objective of six deer per square kilometre. This is however

    not DCS policy, and we are sorry that we by mistake

    indicated that to be the case. The number misleadingly attributed to the DCS was arrived at based on the

    modelling work presented in Milner-Gulland et al

    (2004), and by calculating the equilibrium density for a

    given culling regime, and the association between

    population density and population growth. More pre

    cisely, the recommendation of the DCS used to be an annual harvest of approximately 14-16% of the red deer

    population (fig. 5B in Milner-Gulland et al 2004), but due to the way deer were counted this corresponded to a

    realized harvest rate of approximately 11 % (fig. 5 in Milner-Gulland et al 2004). To make these calculations,

    data provided by DCS in 2001 were used, including DCS annual reports and data from a population of red deer

    studied on the island of Rum off the West coast of Scotland

    (Milner-Gulland et al 2004). This hind harvesting rate

    was used in our work to calculate the economical

    consequences of a potential wolf reintroduction.
