Abstract: 

In a study that accomplished on 117 Maral (Cervus elapgus) populations in Golestan National Park, two age groups (fawn and adult) were distinguished for any of two sexes (age structure). In this experiment 71% of population was female (including 55% adult and 16% fawn) and 29% was male (including 15% adult and 14%juvenile).Populations of 6 different area in park have been studied in 5 replicates. These habitats had different population in herd size with 95% liability. There were 5 age groups of Maral population and the percent of middle-aged and upper aged male Maral population were less than usual limit (means 3%). The ratio of calves as compared with does was 7%. In order to study of roe deer population, 4 transect with 5 replicates and totally with 8-Km area have been established. The sex ratios of roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) were 38% males, 15% immature and 47% females. Moreover, density and abundance of roe deer in shrub land 95% liability were more than open forest. The sex ratio of roe deer was 2.5 female for 1 male.
