N.G., Brown, W.A.B and Rothery P. Assessing the
age of Reeves' muntjac (Munticus reevesi).
skulls and mandibles of 50 captive muntjac of
known age, plus four of approximate age, and 30
wild muntjac of approximately known age were examined.
A scoring scheme devised from the earlier work
of Brown & Chapman (1990, 1991) was used to
assess wear of the mandibular molars. Statistical
analysis of the data gives predicted age with
upper and lower limits of 95% prediction intervals.
Although the range for any predicted age is wider
in muntjac than fallow or red deer, the results
indicate that the scoring system is an easily
applied means of assessing muntjac of unknown
